Red Button Board Game Cafe

Korea is well known for its interesting themed cafes. If you are interested in Cheonan you can go to dog, sheep, ferret, raccoon, and even insect cafes. My favorite type of themed cafe in Korea is the board game cafe. I love getting together with my friends, having a delicious drink, and playing some games. In this article, I’m going to tell you what my board game experience was like. If you’re a gamer like me, it’s a must-try in Korea.

The cafe is divided into three parts: a cafe, game selection area, and playrooms. When you first walk in, you have to write down your information because of COVID. After signing in, you will receive a puck with a number on it. This will be the room you will use. At the end of your time, you hand in the puck and pay for your room fee. The room costs 4,000 won per hour. Each person who uses the room has to buy at least one drink. The cafe has a mix of drinks and snacks that were all reasonably priced.

The boardgame cafe had about 30 rooms for use. The one exciting part was that they had little couples cubby cubicles where you could play games. The room was tiny and looked like they were for couples. The cafe also had 17ish full-sized rooms for big groups of people with curtains for privacy.

There was a good variety of board games to play. There was a nice mix of role-playing games, mystery games, and cooperative games. If I had to guess, I would say there were about 200 different board games that you could play. One nice touch about the cafe is that all of the games have stickers to let you know if the game is easy, medium, or hard to play.

I went to the cafe on a Saturday night with my friend. We each got a drink and stayed for 2 hours playing games. The store worker gave us a tablet loaded with videos on how to play all of the games. Including drinks and the board game room rental, we paid 17 dollars. There were a couple of problems that might be difficult for a foreigner. First, none of the workers spoke English, so it might be hard to order and pick a room. Second, all of the games and videos on how to play the games are entirely in Korean. Unless you are playing a game, you know well it might be hard to try a new game there. Other than that, it was a delightful experience. I could easily change games, the room was cozy and very private, and the drinks were delicious. This is a must-do for any board gamer.
