The dancey-cut of our progress (so far!)

We know we’re a little behind… unfortunately the pandemic has made getting building materials especially difficult. Everyone’s gone DIY crazy which has, in turn, slowed us down a bit.

Fortunately – in the grand scheme of things that doesn’t matter too much. We’re just happy to be safe and healthy (and making slow and steady progress to boot!)

We’ll see you on the other side of this! <3

We made a thing!

We just wanted to show off our first table! Constructed using 50% power of friendship and 50% scaffolding boards, we hope they’ll play a big part in creating the warm and homey vibes that we’re aiming for!

The old pine scrubbed up reasonably well for a first pass! We’re working hard to keep the project alive amid all the chaos. #staysafe out there! #rustic #renovation #boardgames #manchester #withington #didsbury #goodtimegames

Plans & Deets

Proposed Frontage

Check out the images below for some more details on 212 Burton Road. Our new address and our plans for the building and layout.

We think the crooked walls and cosy size will lend itself really well to a board games cafe. Hopefully, we can even keep a log burning stove to keep it nice and cosy in the winter!

New Board Games Café in West Didsbury CONFIRMED! Board to death of waiting for updates? Wait no more!

Location: West Didsbury

Wow… yeah, so we’re a bit behind on schedule… still delighted to tell you that we’ve finally got our lease for the board games cafe! Hooray!  

Goodtime Games Manchester will be opening at 212 Burton Road, West Didsbury, M20 2LW as soon as possible.

Formerly “The Stove Room”, the building has a lot of character with sash windows, stained glass (and loads of crooked walls!)  

It’s surrounded by lots of other lovely places worth checking out including a load of pubs for post-game fun and a fantastic bakery that’s just across the road.  

We’ve got plenty of renovation work to do, which we expect will take at least a month (or two…) We’re very happy with our choice of location, even if it wasn’t our first choice (sorry Withington!)

We hope to see you there soon.

Merry Christmas! Hope you like juicy-updates…

Hello lovely followers and Merry Christmas! ???? Here’s our obligatory Christmas post (with a few juicy updates…)

We’ve been busy little beavers behind the scenes, mainly sorting out a lease. We’re very hopeful that in the first weeks of January we’ll have an address, yay!

I’ve been fiddling with our kitchen equipment and we’ve designed a ‘working draft’ veggie menu that we hope you’ll like the look of! ????

In case you didn’t already know… we’re a veggie board games café, but everything on offer will have a vegan counterpart for our animal-loving friends.

There’ll be a good few tweaks and ye ol’ switcheroos before we open; but we think we’ve got the general look and feel down.

See you on the other side of 2020 when we’re all a few pounds fatter!
