Hi folks - My home city of Edinburgh now has two gaming cafes, one for wargaming, the other for board games and RPGs. This is a fairly new thing in Scotland - last 5 years as far as I can see. However, apparently this is well established in the rest of the world.
I was wondering if anybody can throw some light on for how long this has been going on?
In my hometown in Western Canada we had a boardgame cafe during the mid-nineties. A few of the game/comic shops might also have counted because they served drinks and snacks while you used their tables to game.
Is there recent growth? Yes, certainly. What other sources have you considered?
