A game of Ticket to Ride and bowl of gummy worms—name a better duo.
Metro Vancouver will be seeing rainy weather for the foreseeable future, so outdoor outings are a no-go. So if you’re looking for indoor date or hang out ideas, a board game cafe might be the way to go. What better way to bond than to huddle in a cozy cafe and challenge your brain to a game of Catan? More of these cafes have been popping up on our radar, so here’s a round-up of some options for your next game of Monopoly.
Did you know this pizza spot is also a game room? Ludica’s board games are free to play as long as you order pizza. What’s better – they have a colour-coordinated system on their website to show which games are most (or least) involved. On busy nights, there is a game steward to help teach you how to play any new games.

Originally known for their waffle topped milk shakes, Off the Grid Waffle Cafe has expanded their menu to include chicken burgers and chicken and waffles.

This “gamer” restaurant is a great option for Langley residents. They have a bunch of different food menus – from a kid’s menu to share plates to a fully vegan menu. Students get 10% off entrees Monday to Friday. The Raving Gamer offers private rooms for big groups of board gamers, which costs $40 for the first 2 hours and an additional $10 per hour after. Otherwise, they do have a two-hour and two-game limit in their main room.
