From causal cafes to family-friendly spaces, Calgary has gained a number of board game-focused eateries over the last year or so, including Pips, Boxcar Cafe, and the recently opened Hexagon Board Game Cafe.

Located in Calgary’s Kensington Village, The Hexagon has approximately 400 board games (and counting!) for patrons to choose and play while enjoying quality crafted coffee beverages. Beer and wine is also available.

Co-owner Kellie Ho says, “The Hexagon is a place to interact, have fun, and be competitive in a relaxing and modern environment.”

Currently The Hexagon has approximately 400 games on hand, however, Ho says that they intend to have 1000+ games.

“It takes some time to build up the library, so we’ve only opened with a smaller selection to start,” elaborates Ho.

The library has a range of games, including classics, party games, Euro games, strategy games, card games, and adventure games. There’s a gaming fee of $2.50/hour per person to sit down and play any of the games.

For those who are keen to branch out and try a new game, there’s no need to feel overwhelmed as a game master is available for rule clarification.

“Our knowledgeable staff – Hexperts – are also on hand to recommend and teach you new games,” says Ho.

In terms of the menu, The Hexagon offers premium coffee from locally-based Fratello Coffee Roasters, along with sandwiches and pastries from Corbeaux Bakehouse. In addition, The Hexagon has beer on tap, with a variety of rotating cans and bottles.

At 2600 square feet, The Hexagon offers seating for around 80.
