The period of May, reminds us just of school summer vacations, when we indulged in nothing but free spirit, doing all those fun things without a care in the world. When afternoons and evenings were spent playing numerous board games, one after the other. That was one of the most favourite part of our childhood slash summer vacation memories.
If you miss your board games, we have cafes that love board games just as much as you, and thus have them out for their customers to indulge in. Below are the city’s best Cafe and Sit Down games to try hang out with your friends on extended period of time.
