About Chance & Counters Bristol
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.
Had a great experience - we asked the staff for some recommendations and the games they suggested were exactly what we were looking for. We’ll definitely be back.
I loved my time at Chance and Counters! The board games were great quality, the staff were very helpful, and the food was amazing! (I recommend the Cheesy Chilli Fries!)
We had a wonderful afternoon playing games including Bunny Kingdom. Because of Covid-19 restrictions we could not browse the games and there were not the normal people around to explain how to play a game it it took away some of the fun for me. Saying that though we still had an amazing time and I would recommend a session at Chance & Counters to anyone who likes playing games. When I go there next time I may look up online games before I go. I felt very safe with the Covid-19 restrictions that had been put in place food and we were all well spaced out. Thie food was delicious great but a I think it needs a salad with lots of different types of vegetables and some type of pulse or other protein
This was my first experience at chance and counters, and the first time out after lockdown. I can honestly say that chance and counters didn’t disappoint! The service was amazing, recommending games and food etc. I felt so safe, everyone was social distanced, screens between tables, QR codes etc. You guys have done amazing! We will most definitely be back!
Amazing range of games, super awesome staff and great drink & grub 👍
We had such a fantastic evening at Chance & Counters. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and helped us find the perfect game for us, and the food was great (can thoroughly recommend the BBQ beef nachos!). The adaptions that C&C have made for Covid19 worked really well, didn't dampen our experience at all.
5 stars. Done a great job of not letting the ridiculous covid measures interfere with the experience.
love it here!! awesome staff. food and games!
The server was really helpful in choosing a game and the food was amazing! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back.
so good to be back at the cafe and seeing all the staff again. We where made to feel very welcome and the guys did a great job of keeping everything safe while we all got used to the new procedures.
It was such a great experience, we really enjoyed the location and atmosphere.
Always enjoyable visiting chance and counters. Keeps the same charm even with changes due to covid.
Such a lovely evening; we're so pleased Chance and Counters has reopened and to see them taking all the necessary precautions to get gamers back playing safely. Great friendly staff who made us feel very welcome too!
Really enjoyed being back at C&C. Service was friendly and staff were very happy!
The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. I was amazed at how well the whole team have handled the new COVID secure measures and at no point did I feel unsafe. I missed my weekly visits to Chance and Counters, so thank you everyone for giving me and my friends and amazing night out,
Really helpful staff and great games. Food was really nice as well.
Overall a great experience, the food was exactly what we wanted. I've visited several times and will be back again soon. My only criticism is that long term I think the back room could do with some sound dampening. As it stands when full the volume level can make it difficult to hear one another and to concentrate. Once again an overwhelmingly positive experience. Thanks.
Great time .. staff were brilliant
We had a lovely evening. Staff were very helpful in helping us to select suitable games and explaining their rules.
Very friendly and cosy place!
Table was too small. There were 5 of us and table was only big enough for 4. Otherwise was fantastic. Will be returning for sure.
Loved it! It had a really nice vibe to it and the food was very tasty. I didn't catch his name but the game guru in the yellow top with a beard was really nice and helpful. Only downside was that one of our orders of food was incorrect but i will definitely go again!
We had the front of the cafe booked for our team gathering. We had a range of hardened board gamers to those whose only experience had been the annual yuletide family game of monopoly. Everyone managed to find games that appealed and get cracking thanks to the aid of helpful staff or our in house board gamers. All had a great time, we had more food than we managed to eat and plenty of drink we'll definitely be back :) Thanks to Kim and crew for making it happen.
Amazing place! I always spend such a great time there, the staff is super helpful and friendly, the games are ace, and the smoothies are delicious! If really there was something to improve in my opinion, isn’t that it would be really nice to have a bigger variety of cakes. But let’s be honest, that really isn’t a big deal!
