About Chance & Counters
Chance & Counters is Bristol’s first dedicated board gaming café, tucked at the bottom of Christmas Steps.
It’s a purpose-built space that board gamers of all ages and abilities can enjoy, from casual players to seasoned strategists.
A great night, thank you!
Amazing, we had so much fun, food & drink was great too! Thanks so much, we’ll be back soon!
I love Chance and Counters. 3 of us spent a very enjoyable evening trying out different board games, 3 in total. The atmosphere is great, its a fairly small space, so when big groups are in it can get more difficult to hear one another but everyone is just having fun.
Super friendly staff who are only too happy to help with game selection and explaining the rules - really helped us get the most out of our visit!
Great atmosphere and service. Staff provided explanation of game rules.
We had a great time - really nice staff, great food and decent prices. A fab venue for part of our Christmas day.
We had a great afternoon and the staff were very helpful. All the games they recommended were great fun!
Great food, top service from lovely staff, and endless games to play - what’s not to love?
Really great experience and would recommend. Thank you
Very friendly staffs helpful staff, lovely food, great atmosphere. Looking forward to going again!
Great as always!
Really enjoyed our evening and appreciated all the knowledge shared by members of the team. The food was excellent and there was plenty of flexibility which helped with my dietary requirements. I do think £5 per head is a bit steep when there are a lot of you playing one game together, but it was ok as a treat.
The food was good, and the staff were helpful. Amazing range of games! Only negative is that we never got our second lot of food as ordered 45 mins before the end of our reservation and it hadn't been started 10 mins before the end so we had to cancel it as another group waiting. Apart from that had an Awesome time!
Great staff that really know the games and are always willing to recommend something new.
Absolutely loved it here! Great way to spend an afternoon with friends. Yummy food & friendly, knowledgable staff!
Great afternoon out with friends. Amazing selection of games and lots of free advice from the game gurus! Would highly recommend to any board game fan or anyone with a free couple of hours!
We love coming to Chance and Counters, its really nice to engage in a board game in this environment. The choice of games is excellent and the on hand expert is always great. Beer selection is great. The only gripe we have is the food is not to our liking, the food always is oily or salty and these do not go well with board games/manual etc.. We are considering eating before we arrive in the future. But it would be nice to include food in our visit rather than find extra time to eat elsewhere. Apart from the food, I couldn't image a better place.
Had such a great time at C&C, game recommendation was spot on! Thanks! Will definitely be back.
Loved our game host! Can't remember your name hun, but the one with the curly hair and glasses! So much knowledge about the games, and we appreciated you playing along with our banter!
Amazing place, my only gripe is the table lights are far to bright and glare when you’re playing. But other wise LOVE THE PLACE
We had a great time - thank you.
We have always enjoyed chance and counters. Your range of games and alcohol is exceptional! While I appreciate you are always busy, we would appreciate more 'games masters' to be available and explain new games to us
Had a really fun time here with my 7 year old son. He can’t wait to go back
That guy that knew all of the games was very impressive
The staff are really helpful and lovely, they made us feel very welcome on my Birthday. There’s an amazing selection of games too. I love going there!
