Whether it is a dark cold winter day or a blisteringly hot summer afternoon, The Hexagon Board Game Cafe has you covered! It's the first board game cafe in the Old Strathcona area of Edmonton. Here, you will find the highest quality espresso-based beverages, beers, soda, and (of course) board games. Over five hundred board games, in fact. Their games cater to everyone–the young and old, party gamers and strategic gamers, the experienced and inexperienced gamers.
Hexagon’s atmosphere is one where a group of friends can spend an evening challenging each other over a rough and tumble game of Cash and Guns, or a new couple can get to know each other over the plains of Catan. Walking through Hexagon, you can easily find a table anxiously hiding their treasures from pirates over a game of Riff Raff, or another table working together to escape the flooding Forbidden Island. Hexagon has what you are looking for, whether it’s a quiet night with scrabble and tea, or a night filled with friends and beers.
Besides offering a huge library of games to play, they also teach! If a game catches your eye, but you do not know how to play it, they will show you. Once a week they host a night where a "Hexpert" teaches you about a game that is notably difficult. It’s a great way to learn a new game and meet new people in the gaming community.
