A few years ago we discovered this great place on one of our January Date Nights. It is called MOX Boarding House. It is a restaurant and game room. You walk into the retail part and are surrounded by every game you can imagine. Next to this space is a restaurant and you can put your name on the waiting list. The trouble is there is no real estimate on how long your wait will be because people will hang out in the restaurant and play games for as long as they want.
As you can imagine some games last a really long time. Where do people get these games? Well, that is what makes this place so unique. You can go to the retail counter and ask to borrow a game. If you don’t know what kind of game to play their employees are so great about finding one that suits your interests.
This year we decided to go there again, mostly because we weren’t quite sure what we wanted to do.
When we put our name in at the restaurant we were #11. Oh boy! Thankfully we were recommended this game, Onitama. We both really enjoyed the quick pace of the game and also the strategy needed to play. The best part of the game is that I won, more than once. As per usual, Brad came back and crushed me for the rest of the time.
After about an hour of waiting we finally were able to get a table in the restaurant. We brought our game to continue playing.
So, if you are looking for a fun date night be sure to check out MOX Boarding House.
