Why we love it

Having started life over in Bristol a couple of short years ago, Chance & Counters has finally spread its big, fun wings and flown over the bridge to set up shop in Cardiff. The first dedicated board gaming cafe in the city, you're guaranteed to have an absolute stormer of a time with a trip to Chance & Counters – although Wriggle won't be held responsible for any ensuing family feuds or relationship breakdowns after a heated game...

Just a teeny tiny walk from Cardiff Castle on the High Street is where you'll find the Chance & Counters board game cafe/bar, housed within a stunning Victorian building that's flooded with natural light, and is full of quaint little nooks, crannies, and period features. It's a lovingly-created passion project for its 3 owners, and inside you'll find literally hundreds of board games to suit all levels of skill, interest, and attention-span. 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 (Tiny Rebel are always in stock – hurrah!), wines or spirits, or play it safe with a juice or delicious, freshly made coffee. There's food to fuel your campaign, with a seasonal menu full of tasty treats, but ultimately Chance & Counters is all about the games, and boy have they nailed it!

Decided to Wriggle there for my partner's birthday and we had the most amazing time. With the wide selection of board games they offer, I am certain there is something for everyone. Also the food was incredible, and they have a separate menu for vegans/gf, I believe. Overall, this was one of my best Wriggles so far and I can't wait to go back there.
