So I found a new board game cafe that just opened in downtown KCMO. I've not been but I'm looking to see if anyone has been and is interested in starting up a regular group.

I'm not sure what to think of a place that charges you just to be there. I guess it works well for Snakes & Lattes, but I'd have a hard time convincing people to meet there instead of TableTop.

No thanks. That place carries the odor of Magic players throughout it (literally... I still remember how bad it smelled in there).

Yeah makes sense if you live closer to TableTop but I live in downtown KC so this place is closer and I was hoping there was interest in it. I have friends that like TableTop some play games all the way up in Leavenworth some are out in Independence.

They mainly charge for renting their games. The $5 gets you access to their rather large library for the entire day! Which is great if you want to try something new without wanting to buy it. They still are working on their bar and restaurant but when it's finished it will probably become my main hang out since I live so close to it.

That's great if you don't have any games but still want to play. What if I want to bring my own games, buy some food and drinks, and play with my usual game group? It appears that I would still be charged the $5 cover charge, which is going to make me think twice about going there.

I'd rather have a food and drink minimum, instead of a cover charge.

Weird that they call it pawns and pints considering you can't buy beer or any alcohol there. Plus the photos look like the place is only half done and under construction.

I have only been there once shortly after they opened. I thought it was great. Owners were very friendly and willing to help make suggestions and teach new games. Atmosphere was great and will only improve as they finish the food and drink probably. To me, $5 is pretty trivial for access to a friendly game environment with a large game collection.
