A place to play games

The other day I went to a bbt (bubble tea) restaurant called Joy-G. It was the first time I've been there and the place is unique in the sense that they offer boardgames for you to play. They have a large selection of games which varied from the basic checkers to the complex dungeon and dragons. Furthermore, they also have foreign Asian games that I've never heard of. Ideally this concept would be great, however they charge by the hour if you want to play with their boardgames. I forgot how much they charge, but I remember it being some what expensive. However they do offer a "all you can play and drink" price as well, where you can stay for as long as you want for a fixed price. This may be worthwhile if a bunch of your friends stay there for a long duration and play something that takes hours. ie Settlers of Catan or Monopoly, but it's going to cost $20+ each. On a side note, back when Twinkle (another bbt restaurant) was still opened they too offered customers boardgames, the only difference being that they didn't charge a price for it. Nevertheless, that could be the reason why they are no longer in business. (But you can still find them at the night market)

  1. That's right, if you play any of these two games at the club on Tuesday night, you only pay £1 to play.
