How to find us

It should be easy to find us once you’re there, but the owner James can point us out if you’re not sure who we are.

Please join us at Cakes n' Ladders on Symonds Street from 6.30 - 9.30pm for one of our bi-monthly board game nights!

We play a range of games, from quick & easy to in-depth strategy stuff. Most of the games we play are on the shorter side (1-2 hours ish?) but the café is open until 10pm so that’s not always the case. You can find the full games list on their website ( We generally split into groups of 4-6 people, so there will typically be 3 or 4 games going at once.


Cakes n Ladders charge $2.50 per person per hour (rounded up), payable when you leave. As a café, they have cakes, drinks & savouries available to buy.

We generally start gaming around 6.30pm. If you can’t make 6.30 but still want to join us, please comment with your approximate arrival time. We can sometimes arrange games to finish when you arrive, but it does depend on how many people attend & what we end up playing.

If you can't work out who we are, please ask the owner to point us out.
