People are Talking About Us!

Need more proof that we are fun to be around and know our stuff when it comes to board-gaming, then check out these lovely reviews of us!

"I arrived at the d20 Board Game Cafe just about lunch time and walked into a lovely welcoming cafe - newly decorated with nice themed touches (and I know there's some dressing still to do)! Walking around the space, it's much larger than it looked on the early photos and videos I'd seen. The playing areas are clean, bright and well finished and lots of space for people. The shelves are full of fantastic games, all the ones I expected and others that I didn't think I'd ever see except in my own cupboard. The games were calling me to try them out. I should have brought friends .... and will do next time!

I know the people involved here are friendly and fantastically enthusiastic about games. I feel really honoured to be invited in under a "friends and family" banner and to see the team learning by doing! I will be recommending everyone I know to pay the d20 a visit and I would be stunned if the d20 fails to attract regular visitors."

"I had the best time learning about new games and spending time with friends; hours flew by! I will definitely be back and will bring more people too."

"Take a Risk, Galaxy Trucker and step through the Portal"

"d20 is a friendly, cosy space with a vast collection of games, tasty food and wonderful hosts. A sleek cafe front hides a secret medieval gaming room at the back. We will be back!"

"Super fun, happy, gaming cafe. YAY!"
