My wife and I went here 4 times this week while on holiday in Wellington. Great selection of games, good food, knowledgeable friendly staff, amazing ice cream and great prices for playing games and buying them! We loved coming here and can't wait to visit again!

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Staff were awesome with friendly attitudes. The food was on point, delicious, good portion sizes and a large variety of drinks available at great prices. $25 on a Wednesday night gets you a burger and a pint plus hours of fun playing games. There is a huge array of games to select from and the only issue we had was choosing which one to play. Our group has decided that this will become a regular place we visit.

Love the place but would like cheap but filling snacking options. The fries are ok but maybe some tear apart bread, or a plate of club sandwiches our table could have split? Still though, not gonna stop coming through. Love you guys.

Awesome place to socialise, have fun and a snack. Staff where super helpful and gave a fantastic recommendation towards a game when we where feeling a little bit over Whelmed by all the choices. Was super appriactive to have someone sit down and explain how to play the game. Ended up playing the game for 2 hours, will definitely be back. Awesome spot. Great Price, 10/10 activity.

I found my chicken burger very tasty and the meat succulent etc, but it was impossible to eat as a burger because the pieces of meat were so big. I did get into rather a mess! I would prefer to eat a small bowl of hot food like lasagne (vegetarian would be fine), shepherds pie or curry. Something that doesn’t take up much space on the table and can be eaten with just a fork. I know there was a curry special on the menu when we went, but it was vegan, which is a step too far for me. Otherwise, we had a great time. Great choice of games and good atmosphere.

After my last experience the owners kindly invited me and my friends back to make up for the sub-par experience last time. However this time was worse. They did this time have Scythe out waiting for us (Though we didn't actually end up playing as I have purchased the game). However when we played another game, unlike last time nobody came over to us to ask if we required any help or just to check. This was quite different from last time when the staff were very helpful and forthcoming. I also ordered some fries for our table and not only did they forget an order but when I went to ask about the forgotten order and said we were still waiting I was responded to with "Okay." That's it, nothing else was said. When they then came out with the fries they were the wrong kind and without the mayo that costs extra, so I asked them to bring the right fries with the mayo. They then brought out the correct fries but still without the mayo. At this point I had given up. My group mused that they must just not like me to keep getting this stuff wrong. My friends and I will not be going back anymore. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Great idea for a bar and cafe. We enjoyed playing a game while enjoying our beverages. Good selection of craft beer. Didn't try any food but next time we will.
