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.
As always, a very enjoyable visit
Great service, atmosphere and selection of food and drink - would highly recommend to all.
All around awesome. Game masters are excellent help.
We had a brilliant night out, loved the food, the games and the help of the guru. We'll definitely be back!
Very noisy but that was due to some rowdy young men who we thought were having a bit too much bravado. Otherwise we enjoyed it, the staff were kind and knowledgable, there was good service and a very good selection of games. The drinks we had were nice too.
Loved my first taste of Chance Encounters. Only downside was the cold draft from the air con unit. We probably had the worst seats for it.
Staff were really really lovely and helpful! Good selection of games and a very fun night out with friends!
Good fun, friendly staff and loads of games to choose from.
Amazing first visit. Loved the atmosphere and hearing the other gamers cheer and shout as they competed with each other added to the fun. Thanks to the ‘lady in yellow’ (sorry not know your name) we tried a new game, loved it and have now ordered it. Food look fab although we didn’t try any. We’ll be back!
We had a really lovely time, thank you for having us
Best asian curry I ever had
A very relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff who are more than willing to answer any queries on the games. A great selection of games to choose from for any type of table top gamer. I'll definitely be back again!
Lovely cosy vibes, great games and good quality food and drink. Always impressed by the value for money and friendly service. Many thanks!
Always good fun and a great atmosphere!
Great service, great value, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.
Really love going to this place. Service is fantastic. Drink range is very good, food and snacks were average. Could be improved.
Endless supply of great games, food and drinks!
I'm not sure why we were put in the back, which was full with lots of other people, rather than sitting in the front? It was a slightly less pleasant experience than it could have been, because it was so loud in there! I've been several times before but this is my first time sitting in the back.
Excellent game recommendations - especially in warning us off a game that we wouldn't have enjoyed!
Always a brilliant night, brilliant atmosphere and brilliant staff!
Service was a little slow in the food and drinks, but the games guru was great!
lovely place, good beer and cocktails, and great selection of games+recommendations!
Great place, massive selection of games and good snacks
