There is a new board game cafe in Exeter, on South Street, near the local branck of KFC. The owner is very friendly and came up with good recommendations for toddler games. There's also decent looking cakes and some good beers and coffee. If you're in the area it's worth checking it out.

What sort of range of games do they have - are they BGG style or the more normal fare? How does the cafe work - is there a charge per time, or per game or a flat rate entry or is it free? Is there much table space?

Details please! I loved Thirsty Meeples in Oxford, and Exeter is a lot closer (we're in Cornwall) so if it was even a quarter as good I'd be delighted

3.50 cover charge for 3 hours last I checked. Games are a good mix of mainstream (risk, monopoly, cluedo) and more bgg esque picks, such as small world, 7 wonders, and there's even a copy of arkham horror I think. Tables are a decent size for most games, but it's not a huge place so at busy times you might need to book ahead.

I think there's 4 big tables plus also a coffee table and you can book a table for a given time. They have a facebook page under BoardExeter I think.

As Andy said, the range of games is mainly BGG-esque but with also Cluedo, Pass the Bomb and others.

For the bgg type games, they have (from memory) Last Will, Arkham, TtR, Tsuro, Coup, Battlestar Galactica, Pandemic, Forbidden Desert or Island. And many others I have forgotten about.

There is also some official gaming nights at the Clifton Road game store, on Tuesday nights, and there's a bit more space there.
