Ellie Frederickson is an experienced player of many board games and has cred as a purveyor of games from a time working in a game store. She has an inclination towards Euro-style games, but isn’t especially picky. Reading rules is a particular skill of hers (and a source of enjoyment, oddly enough) and she usually gets a game right the first time she plays it. She has a keen eye for good designs; in art, cafés and games; and an aversion to sub-standard food and drink

    My business partner and I are looking to open a board game cafe in Barrie, Ontario in the near future. We would like to thank you for this great market research tool.

    I’ve found one board game cafe you should add to your list that just opened this past summer. It’s King Me Boardgamery in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Link below.
