Join us in Ballard for board games at Cafe Mox every Tuesday!

Formerly the "Euro-games" group, we've branched out in genres these past few years and will play just about anything. A lot of us still tend towards Euro-games, but don't be surprised to catch a storytelling game, a word game, or even a social deduction game.

Our average attendance is 12-15 people, so don't be put off by the RSVP count! Regulars rarely sign up here anymore. You're not required to either, but it's a good place for questions or to let people know what you want to play.


May I arrive late?

Certainly. We start 3-5 player games every 30-45 minutes. You can also sit and watch for a while (it's a great way to learn).

What kind of games do you play?

We play all kinds of games but tend to prefer strategic and Euro-style games.

Should I bring my own games?

Cafe Mox is attached to Card Kingdom, a board game store with a lending library of games for us to pick from, but you can always bring one of your own and show us why it rocks.

Is food and drink available?

Yes, Cafe Mox has a moderately-sized menu and a range of beers/ciders on tap, as well as wines and some other oddities. They do not serve liquor.

Do I need to buy food or drink?

Not at all. We would never discourage someone from having a good time by requiring a purchase. However, please be aware that outside food and beverage is not allowed in the restaurant without permission (they've allowed cake and treats on special occasions).

I'm new to this leisure renaissance of board gaming, will you be patient and inclusive?

On our best days, we offer practice games. If you're new to all this, come on in and hang out, kibbitz, or maybe even partner up with someone. Most of us will teach our favorite games and if you have something specific you want to learn, let us know!
