We wanted to create a community space where people can come, grab a game off the shelf, or ask for a recommendation and play! With over 600 tabletop games in our board game library, there is something for everyone. Please reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any other questions.
Board game cafes are fun entertainment venues where folks can gather to enjoy food, drinks, and board games.
Here at Stay and Play Game Cafe, we cater our Puerto Rican menu, games, and overall experience to all ages, group sizes, and playing skill levels. Our game library ranges from the classics (Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, Dominos, etc.) to the latest and greatest modern games (Wingspan, Azul, Terraforming Mars, etc.) to laugh-out-loud party games (Wits and Wagers, One Night Werewolf, Just One, etc.). Or you can just come for the food and drinks if you like.
A daily gaming pass is only $5 per person with minimum $10 purchase of food and/or drink. Children 12 and under play for free with each paying adult. People 65 and over also play for free with minimum $10 purchase.
Adults can optionally purchase a $15 game pass without minimum food and/or drink purchase. Includes up to 2 hours of game play.
Our fee is less than a movie ticket and much more fun and interactive. The cost of the food and drinks are available on our menu.
This fee helps us cover the cost of damages, maintenance and restocking of the collection of games.
No problem. Come in and enjoy our delicious Puerto Rican food and drinks. You do not have to pay the gaming pass.
Oh wow... we have a ton. You can check out our ever growing list of games here. You can search by player count and themes. Also, if you click the game title you can see videos and the instructions.
Yes, be sure to check-in your game with your server, so we don't confuse your game with one of ours. Note, the game pass fee still applies for all playing of games in our space.

We really want to make our unique mix of food, drink, and board games available to the whole community.

Subject to availability, patrons can extend their time limit by paying a $60 per table reservation fee.
Once all our tables are full, we will add your info (name, phone number, number in your group) to our wait list. We will give you a call or send a text as soon as a table is available.
