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.
Great little place, amazing selection of games and fab drinks!
We had our first but won't be or last visit to Chance and Counters in Bristol. Brilliant experience. Whilst the seats are a little uncomfortable (might have to being a cushion next time), we loved our time there and can't wait for our next visit. Having staff suggest games and help with learning how to play was the best and vital part. Great choice of food and drink. Highly recommend. Thanks for a great time.
Very enjoyable, will be back
Excellent choice of boardgames and the cocktails were good but the staff were incredible. Really approachable and excellent attitude and very helpful. Excellent atmosphere overall. Will definitely be coming here again.
Great game selection and cocktails! Narrow walkway to pick board games and also where the bar is to order drinks etc and pay at the end. So should be full table service which would prevent this build up of queueing and people trying to choose a game!
Had a great time!
Great place, good selection of games but not many new ones. Would happily go back every week if I lived in Bristol!
Small space means it's very loud, and poor ventilation makes food smells hang in the air. The food is nice, but takes a long time to appear. Staff very helpful. Game selection still great.
Great atmosphere- all staff amazing.. love the food
The service and overall experience is wholly positive and the only suggestion that I would make is that the membership offer is somewhat limited. We were keen to support chance and counters further but we live too far away to be able to take advantage of the only benefit which is reduction in table cover price.
Really had a great time. Thanks!
The four of us really enjoyed are time here - would come back any time. X
Really great experience, we really enjoyed it! There is a huge variety of games to place and it's so easy to lose yourself in the games. The staff were also so friendly and recommended different games we would like. The only thing that took away from the experience was how loud it was! I understand people will want to get together and play games and it can get loud but a couple of loud groups meant that it was hard to even hear ourselves at times! We will definitely return but possibly for an afternoon session.
Great night, really enjoyed it. Really good explanation from our board game guru Beth (I think) and the whole experience was lovely. Will be back as soon as possible and will bring all our friends!
Friendly and helpful staff
My fiance and have been willing to try this board game cafe for a good while now. Everything about our experience there was amazing and we would really like to go back.
Fantastic games library, great food and friendly staff. Thanks for a great evening!
Staff couldn't have been lovelier. The guru's are very knowledgeable and help to really enhance your experience. We also had the food here which I must safe was very good! Definitely great place to grab a delicious lunch while you play board games. They had a good selections of drinks too with some local beers and delicious milkshakes. The only thing that was a bit unfortunate for us was there was a crowd of quite young girls who were very into constantly shrieking which did ruin the abundance a bit for us...and this is coming from a group of quite loud 20 year olds
Awesome as usual
Staff were excellent, drinks were a little expensive but still a great destination for any gamings session.
Great atmosphere, good caf food and loads of board games to choose from.
