Knight Moves is a board game café located in Brookline, MA. The café offers coffee, snacks, and a massive board game library. Customers will enjoy a comfortable space, with knowledgeable staff and a relaxed atmosphere. An evening at Knight Moves is hassle-free entertainment and a chance to spend time face to face with family and friends.

Knight Moves is just one of many independent board game cafes opening up in the United States this year: Game Haus in LA, The Uncommons in NY, and Gaslamp in Seattle. Though Board Game Cafes have become a tradition in Asia, Europe, and Canada, they’ve yet to truly take root in the United States. As board games become increasingly popular, more and more people are looking for convenient public space to share their hobby. Additionally, as more and more board games enter the market, savvy consumers are interested in trying games out and learning the rules before buying the games.

The Board Game Community in Boston is a vibrant growing thing. There are dozens of board game groups in the Boston area. Groups of people meet and play games in less than perfect environments: cramped restaurants, college classrooms, and the back rooms of comic book shops. Knight Moves will provide a common space to enrich the board game playing experience and foster this growing community. Knight Moves will be your living room away from home.

    This is such a great idea. Wishing you the best of luck. Would love to see this spread across the USA.

  4. What days are you open around Christmas? In particular, are you open either the 24th or 26th?

    Sounds neat! I organize events for a Meetup group and this sounds like it would be a fun group event location. Can we reserve tables in advance?

  7. Matthew Babineau says:

    Does your license allow BYOB? It would be nice to enjoy a nice beer whilst playing.

  8. Veronica Ward says:

    What is the parking like in this area? Street and metered parking lots? What T line runs by you and what would be the closest stop? Do you have a directions page and map?

    For the MtG Boston meet up site, I need you to sign up so that I can add you as a host for Knight Moves location. Please sign up so that I can post events for you. Thanks, V
