    Minds café is one of the first places that I will think of when I want to play board games or simply need a place to chill out with friends. Recently (slightly more than 1 month ago), they opened their 3rd outlet in the town area. This time round they are jz mins away from both City Hall and Bugis MRT.

    The new place is quite easy to find, along the same street as Miss Clarity. To me, the new place is as big as Boat Quay outlet. However inside is much more spacious and brighter. New place mah. Since it is a new location, I think not much people still know of the new location unless they are walking past it or they are being to the new place when the other outlets are packed.

    Although, the design and the setting of the place is still pretty much the same as other 2 outlets, I like the spacious, more space and the lighting of the new place, brighter. More space means big groups no need to squeeze together like sardines and there is more space to walk about and to do forfeits so that everyone in the room can see you. Haa….

    There are both sofa seats and normal table seats. Sofa seats are more for big groups can seat up to 8 people. Table seats can seat up to 6 people but then tables can be combined for more seats. Those who want to have a decent meal before playing; I would suggest the table seats. Haa…. Since it is a new outlet, of cos they got limited games as compared to the other two outlets. However the more popular games still can be found there and to say that the games sets there are newer. Hee…

    The menu there same as the other outlets not much changes but have to say that the food there is still as good as before. There is a wide variety of their drinks as well. Hee….

    Depends on the size of your group, there are different packages to optimized your money and time. You can combine different packages to get the most out of it as well. Haa….. Packages usually come with 2 hours of playing time, some snacks and drinks.

    They got quite a number of staff there to serve and advise, teach how to play the newer board games as well. They are quite on the ball and polite as well. They definitely got the patience to teach people how to play the games as well. If you are challenging enough you can always ask them for a challenge, be warned that they are quite good in some of the games ok! Hee….. On the average I can easily spend 4 hours there jz to play games.

    This place serves quite a good place for gatherings or birthday parties as well. Not to mention affordable as well.

      This is a newly opened outlet of The Mind Cafe, in fact, it was only opened on last Friday. This probably explains why I didn't see the typical weekend crowd typical of the other 2 outlets when I went on last Sunday.

      Since there's 6 of us, we took up the sixers' package which includes 6 drinks, 3 snackers & 2 munchies and 2 hrs of boardgames. Heez...

      So what games did we play? As most of my friends were 1st-timer in boardgame, the staff recommended some beginners' games such as Jurassic Jumble to us. It was fun! But if you are a more`experienced boardgamer, you can always try out intermediate or advanced games which requite more thinking & strategies. Some of my faourite games played include Coda, Abalone & Taboo.There's in fact too many games for you to choose!

      On the overall, I like the place for its service & helpful staff as well as the entire experience in the boardgame cafe. It's definitely a great place for group gatherings!
