For people who play board games, amassing a good-sized collection can cost you a lot of money. Fortunately there’s a nice and friendly place downtown that allows you to choose from hundreds of different games and have a relaxing and comfortable environment to play them for a few bucks. Sente: Games & Refreshments is your answer.

There are over two hundred games to choose from which you can view the list here. For just $3 a person, you get access to the game library all day long; there’s no time limit. You can leave, come back that night and still play. Children 10 and under play for free with an adult. Every fifth visit is free with their punch card. And if you plan on going often, there’s a $10 monthly membership.
At the moment, they do not serve food but hope to do so soon. In the meantime, they have some coffee, Italian sodas, baked good and snacks. You are also welcome to bring in your own food. It’s a convenient location given that the ICT Pop-Up Urban Park is right across the street.
Lastly they are perfect for parties of all sizes. There’s plenty of seating for all groups.
I’m an avid board gamer and a nerd at heart. Little nerdy fact about myself: over 15 years ago, I wrote a board game blog for about 6-7 months and actually received free board games because of it. That was short-lived and instead moved on to blogging about different subjects. Maybe one day, I’ll incorporate board game reviews on here.
I wasn’t aware of this place until a few months ago. I was glad to see there are more places like this popping up around town along with Wizards Asylum, Headshots, Grinning Goblin and Hero Complex. If you’d like to learn about new board games, places like Sente are great. For such a low price, you can really try your hand at all sorts of different games.
