The best thing about board games is that you can play them almost anywhere, including in the bustling city of Bangkok. Here is where you can find the best board game cafés in the city.

Boarding Time Board Game Cafe


The city center of Bangkok is a watering hole for shopaholics and those who love a night out on the town. Thanks to Boarding Time Board Game Cafe, however, it is also a place for game lovers to come together and take to their favorite game; there are hundreds from which to choose. Gamers can enjoy any one of these titles for ฿150 a day or ฿50 an hour. The café features a menu that will keep visitors from getting hungry, and it sits just a stone’s throw away from the BTS Skytrain. Boarding Time Board Game Cafe is also open until midnight, so players can take their time and finish that game of Scythe that is taking so long. The board game café is open Monday through Sunday beginning at 2 p.m.

The bar also has Jenga, foosball, beer pong, and amazing DJs on the weekends, for those of you who prefer dancing over gaming. Game Over Lounge is open until 2 a.m. every day but Monday.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
