Ludorati Games Library – ‘The Wall’

Ludorati Café stocks around 750 board games in its library. The collection includes a range of games from old classics to the newer eurostyle games, and covers many genres and themes to appeal to all visitors.

The collection is housed in A-Z format to help with finding the game you want, and we have in-house game experts who can help with choice and assistance in learning new games. We encourage gamers to let us know if they think an expert is required in order for us to prepare and/or allocate time. This is an option for those who reserve tables in advance (through their membership). The Cafe also holds a number of gamer events – structured sessions that introduce new games and help with learning to play (well!), in addition to tournaments and specific game promotional events. These are announced via our Facebook events page.
