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.
The collection also includes a number of premium games in terms of their special game components, availability, cost and/or theme. The premium list includes:
Axis & Allies (several versions)
Battle of Westeros
Cards Against Humanity
Gettysburg (original version)
Heroes of Normandie
Horror on the Orient Express
Murder Mystery series
Railways of the World
Shadows over Normandie
Star Wars Imperial Assault
Star Wars Rebellion
The Battle of the Five Armies
The Pillars of the Earth

The premium games can be hired out for a small additional fee of £2.50 per game.
