Game Point @ Bongo East

The first coffeehouse in East Nashville is now also home of the city’s first Board Game café.

Bongo East has partnered with Game Point Café, which means there is a curated game library of more than 400 classic, family, cooperative and strategic games for customers to play.  While playing, you are encouraged to have a drink from our extensive coffee menu, enjoy one of several craft beers on tap or fill up with a sandwich, salad or snack from our food menu.

In the evenings, we have Game Coaches on hand to help you learn your new favorite game.  There is also a retail section for you to take the fun home with you.   We have a robust selection of game titles priced competitively with online stores so that you can feel good spending your money locally while still getting a great game at a good price.  We can special order titles as well.

Bringing a group to Game Point?  

We have games for all size groups, so we are sure you’ll have fun.  Unlike our love of games, however, our space is limited.  To ensure a great experience for both your group and that of our other guests, we request that any group of more than eight please email us at groups@gamepointcafe.com – preferably at least 48 hours before you want to visit us.  We’ll do our best to find the right night and time for you to get your game to the table!

Thanks to everyone that came out over our three nights of preliminaries for the Catan National Championships! We saw a lot of great games played over the course of the three evenings – including one perfect 3-0 result!!

Next steps: check the rankings, if your name is above the line you are in the top 16 players and are invited to come back to Game Point on Monday February 10th. Starting at 7 pm, we will organize into four semifinal games – the winner of each of those games will then move to the final game. That winner will be our Game Point representative and headed to Origins for the National Champs!

If you aren’t in the top 16, please show up. We always have some people not able to make it and we will fill those spots in order of rankings. I already know of at least one finalist that can’t make it.

Thanks for coming out – if you didn’t qualify, or just want to play some more Catan, there will be another qualifier as part of Tennessee Game Days – the first weekend in March!

Next Event

February 18 | 6:30 pm

Tonight’s event will be a best of one, Archon format.  You will need to bring our own Keyforge deck to the event.  Arrive by 6:30 pm to register your deck and sign in. First round will start shortly thereafter.  We ask that everyone playing plan to spend a minimum of $5 in food or drink.  The tournament winner will get Keyforge Promotional materials or a Game Point Cafe gift card.

This event is an official Chainbound Event.  What does that mean?  It means that we will register each deck before play begins.  The results of the tournament are reported back to the Fantasy Flight servers and decks are handicapped based on how well they have done.  In essence, this helps to create a fluid meta around the game.  In addition, playing and winning also earns you ambershards that can be redeemed for promotional stuff from Fantasy Flight Games.  So you’ll want to have downloaded the Keyforge app and have set up your personal account on the app before the tournament begins.  You can read more about the format on Fantasy Flight Keyforge Website.

Unless otherwise noted, Game Point Cafe is open to the public
for gaming during our special events.
