As im coming to educate myself on a teaching course in Piraeus, id like to visit some of the important board game locations in Athens in November. What would you recommend? Where should i go for good times or good prices or great locations?
There are some great places to visit here in Athensto visit and these are coffee shops or game clubs that host game nights.
My favourite suggestions:
1. A game club is called the "Keli" (the Cell) and is is a small space that you can come alone and find a lot of friends to play board games there. Its near the metro of Agios Ioannis so its easy to find it, if you are near the metro and use google maps, it on a pedestrian street. No charge for playing a game and you can leave a tip at the money box to help out with the rent.
2. A board games store with a nice collection of games to "rent" and play right on the spot and its called "Game Rules" and you can order a coffee from their neighbouring coffee shop or take a beverage or food from their vending machine. Its a cool space to sit inside and if the weather allows there can be tables to play games outside so if you bring company you are going to have a great time. Keep in mind that if you come late afternoon and at the peek hours of the store there might allready be many people there reserving almost all tables, so come early and you are going to have fun definately!
Playstories is a coffee shop with delightful beverages and nice big tasty burgers with a wide variety of boardgames and lots of space inside and if its sunny, a beautiful outside backyard space. The staff there is friendly and you are going to enjoy playing with your friends there and if lucky you can join in some people coming there to just play and playtest games so there is a chance the if you come alone (as in the previous space) to find someone to sit with and play.
And last but not least, you can always send a message and find some people to play with through the forums on bgg or facebook groups...
