We offer offer over 1,400 board games and our library is constantly updated with the hottest new games. We also have game navigators who can help you find an old favorite or teach you a new game. We have custom-made gaming tables and chairs that have been in design and development for over a year. We offer a full service restaurant, bar, and coffee shop, with a retail store to boot. Even our lighting is custom; it is designed to show all colors with equal brilliance, thanks to the lighting engineers we consulted before our build. There are numerous special nights with different activities and deals to be had. We also support events, caterings and parties of up to 100 people.

What kind of games do you have?
We have all the classic games from your youth and even your grandparents’ youth. Our main focus are table-top games; this is an industry which is currently enjoying total revenues measured in the billions and is releasing approximately 5000 new games per year. We have over 1,400 games in our library, each of which has been prepared by Shuffles with labeled baggies to help with set up and put up. We also have a list of all the classic games with recommended modern gaming titles that you might enjoy if you enjoy some of the “mechanics” in a certain classic game. This is a living dynamic collection of games that is continuously updated based on choosing the best of all these new releases and culling while still maintaining standard classic games, old favorites and popular games.

How much does it cost?
At Shuffles you are always allowed to eat and drink without paying for a game pass; however, we think you will succumb to the lure of the library. The following fee structure applies to patrons who choose to game with us. The game pass pays for much more than just the game you are playing. We have over 1,400 games in the library and have spent about 900 hours in just preparing the games for commercial use. In addition, we keep track of frequency played and do inventory to repair or replace game pieces so that your gaming experience is top notch. We offer game navigators to choose and teach games to you, a buyer who works tirelessly to make sure we have a relevant collection in both the library and retail, custom game tables, booths, chairs, and lights. The overall experience is what we are selling and we are happy that you have made us your home away from home for something different.
