Also:
* Monday nights at 6pm at Connection Games on Renfrew and Grandview.
* Multiple nights at Board Game Warriors (and other nearby venues) in New Westminster: http://www.meetup.com/The-Board-Gamers-of-Central-Vancouver/

I'm also pretty sure Strategies on Main still has a weekly game night.

You can confirm the One Stop ones, and add one to Sunday as well.

I'm at Craving every Thursday. Almost nobody shows up before 5 - 5:30, but you're welcome any time.

I'm usually there by 4 personally

Does Magic Stronghold still have open board game nights? They've been removed from their monthly calendar.

Dave's Pop Culture in Ladner has open gaming on Wednesday night, is open late and encourages gaming (but also Dicemasters) on Thursday nights. Both nights open until 10pm.

There are four permanent tables and others that can be set up for gaming 6 days a week (he's generally closed on Mondays...although that may change over the school summer break).

FYI, Wednesday nights at Cuppa Joy (which I mentioned roughly a year ago) are no longer a thing.
