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.
Amazing choice of games and enthusiastic staff!
Great atmosphere, friendly staff and a wide variety of games. A very genuine and big hearted place, with lots of character!
Excellent, friendly service from knowledgeable staff. Food and drink a little pricey, but well-worth it for the vast array of games.
Always have a great experience when I'm here. Keep up the good work and let the fun roll on :)
Brilliant. Well worth a visit.
Love this place. Staff are all welcoming and friendly and the food and drinks are great, even when the balloon fiesta meant the menu changed!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere and the biggest selection of board games I have ever seen. Would definitely come again.
Tasty cocktails, friendly helpful staff, when busy it's better to send one person up to the bar to order a round of drinks it all gets added t your table tab instead of waiting for table service. Fantastic selection of games!
Amazing place! Everything is catered to board games just as you would expect even down to the drinks holders on the side of the tables so you don’t lose gaming space! Atmosphere is chilled and happy! The staff were great! Really knowledgeable and friendly! 10/10 would recommend!
Food options are somewhat limited by the small kitchen, but the service and selection of games are excellent.
Excellent as always
Milkshakes were lovely! And staff were very friendly, approachable and helpful.
Thanks for doing a great job of looking after our specific requests - always a good experience visiting here.
Really bloody great!
Excellent evening out for a group activity. The food was really good, the atmosphere brilliant, and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely being doing this again.
I love C&C, it's one of my favourite places to visit in the city. Great fun, great value and great beer. I feel like there used to be a larger range of toasties and I miss them. Apart from that, I could fault a thing.
Amazing venue for my birthday. The selection of games were fantastic and the food was great! Staff on hand to explain how to play new games as soon as they noticed us reading the rules. We will definitely be back soon!
Absolutely love this place. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our group had a blast. Thank you.
We had a fantastic evening, I requested to play Secret Hitler which was brought promptly. The person explaining took plenty of time to makes things not only clear but interesting too despite the venue being full. Thank you, we'll be back soon!
Amazing time, games guru was so helpful with top tips.
Staff were very welcoming and the game guru (girl with pink and orange hair) was excellent. However the noise levels were pretty out of control, people screaming at their own board games made it quite difficult to concentrate on ours. Would need to look into the quieter times before coming back.
One of my favourite places! Food is amazing. There’s an incredible selection of games always something we’ve never played before and the staff are incredibly knowledgeable. If I could I would live here!
Mish and Trin(not quite sure of that name but he was male too) lovely to chat to and both helped out what i was looking to get many times, very helpful and very knowledgeable about the games (Trin).
The games are amazing. The staff and layout were great. The tapas was very tasty but left me rather hungry.
