We like to think we’re a bit unique. Not quite a bar, not a board game store, not a coffee shop, but something that mixes all of those elements—and a bit more. Here’s how we play at Kingmakers:
FIRST, A LIBRARY
A $5 per player Library Fee allows us to maintain and grow our Library. It is a flat, per person charge that is added to your tab and allows you to enjoy as many titles for as long as you want during that business day.
We kindly ask that you enjoy our selection of games - and not bring in outside titles - while you are here. We have carefully curated an ever-evolving library of games that we feel fits the experience of a visit to Kingmakers. If we do not have a game that you would like to play here, please suggest it to any of our Board Game Sommeliers and we’ll strive to include it.
Sundays are now BYO Games!
They say cash is king, but we couldn’t disagree more. We find that cash is difficult to manage and secure; by opening a tab, we can keep your purchases, as well as your Library Fee, in an organized format that allows for one simple payment transaction during your stay. Open a tab, then it’s all fun and games from there!
FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED, ALL WELCOME
At this time we are not able to take reservations. Complete parties will be seated on a first come, first serve basis. If there is a wait for a table, our team will work very hard to have your party enjoying a game as soon as possible!
We make an exception for an Early Bird Table during the weekday and for private events outside regular business hours. To learn more, visit our bookings page.
All ages are welcome! We ID anyone who appears to be under 40 and ask that all minors be accompanied by an adult.
We have hundreds of games; check out what's on the shelves in Columbus and Indianapolis! There is a wide range in skill level, time required to play, type of play, and party size to fit any group. Our Board Game Sommeliers can give suggestions on what your group might enjoy and guide you through game set up, rules, and play.
Our Sommeliers are board game aficionados, connoisseurs, and instructors. They are available to help guests with recommendations for play, explain rules, and offer guidance. Every Sommelier needs to be able to teach 30 games to work here. Many know 100 or more games! We’re always looking for great people to join our team.
CAN I DONATE GAMES?
We gladly accept and appreciate donations of complete and clean tabletop board games. Thank you for thinking of us!
