Nestled at the foot of the charming Christmas Steps, Chance & Counters is Bristol's only dedicated Board-Game cafe/bar and has fast developed a cult-following. It's a lovingly-created passion project for its 3 owners. Inside you'll find literally 100s of board-games. The knowledgable team help you select a game to suit your vibe, buzzing with enthusiasm as they explain the rules. And off you go – into the rabbit-hole that is modern board-gaming.
As you play, stoke your creativity with a few carefully selected beers, wines or spirits. Or play it safe with a juice or coffee. There's food to fuel your campaign – cheese and meat platters, paninis and baguettes – but ultimately Chance & Counters is all about the games, and boy have they nailed it!
Really helpful staff explained the games well and made the experience very enjoyable. Yum toasties!
Excellent selection of board games to appeal to anyone's tastes. The food is average at best and a bit overpriced, simply there to fuel the boardgame sessions.
Lovely fun place to play board games with help from experts. Great food and drink choices and not too expensive. Highly recommend.
a lunchtime gaming session at C&C is always an absolute pleasure
