I’ve just been to Meeple Perk, Newcastle’s first dedicated board games café. Yes, they have two chess sets! So you can be there and be square.
It’s at 89 Clayton Street in Newcastle. Drop in for cakes and coffee, or pay £3 to get access to all the board games (they have more upstairs).
A Meeple is a board game counter shaped like a person, made famous by the game Carcassonne.
Please support Rhi and Drew’s venture, because I know you like at least one board game!
