Boardgaming locations [Mar. 24th, 2009|10:30 pm]
Gamers in Buffalo, NY


X-posted to buffalo_dorks

I belong to a group of people who play boardgames at a restaurant twice weekly. Tonight we had fairly poor service at our regular restaurant, and weren't allow to use the table we had reserved. (The only table large enough to accomodate some of our games.) Does anyone have any suggestions for another venue where we could play boardgames?

Most of us do order food & drinks when we attend, so we aren't freeloading on the location. The preferences we currently have for a location include:

At least one large table (two would be great)
Food & drink available
Staff that do not rely on tips, as we may take the tables for several hours
The group has a preference for the North Buffalo area, but I would present suggestions to the group if there were a decent place located elsewhere.

My memory of the now closed Higher Grounds Coffeehouse that was at Sheridan and Millersport is an example of the perfect location. Is there something else out there that I don't know about?

For anyone interested in the local boardgame groups, you can check out the groups at meetup.com.

Good to see you posting again.:)

I know downtown, Spot has some big tables, and the service is all counter. I know some people camp and play chess. I know this sounds weird, but have you thought of Wegmans? The one on Sheridan at least has an upstairs section with a lot of large tables, and you can go downstairs at your leisure and buy things. When I really need to write I go there.
