Some two weeks back, a friend of mine came back from Australia and the bunch of us headed to a boardgame café to catch up.
I’ve heard of boardgame cafes but the thought of visiting one never crossed my mind. Perhaps its because my impression of boardgames never ventured beyond “Monopoly” and “Snake and Ladder”….people who play boardgames often must be wondering which corner in
Singapore I’ve been hiding. Oops!
“Pitstop Café” was it’s name. A nice and cosy place tucked away in Boat Quay. I was in awe when I saw the shelves of boardgames that were available to play from! Their friendly staff were also ever ready to explain the games to you when you are in doubt. Brilliant!
The one game I enjoyed was called “Imaginiff”. It is a game that is played in rounds. Each round, one of the players is chosen as the “subject” of a question for which 6 options are given, and everyone votes on the answers. For instance, “Imaginiff _____ were a Rockstar. Who would he/she be?”
We found ourselves laughing at our answers, teasing each other when someone chose a very wrong answer, and of course celebrated with high 5s comes when the majority of us voted on correct answers which implies that you know your friends really well It was quite a funny sight to see groups of young adults at the cafe having such great fun over board games.
I urge you to give it a try…a great way to hang out with your pals, celebrate friendships and most importantly, remembering the child in you!
I left the place at 3am and with a little sparkle in my eye!
Some really fun and imaginative questions to ask about you & your friends
This is just a fraction of the people who have been here…
