Tomato Fest Schedule!

The annual Tomato Art Fest is happening in Nashville this weekend, August 12th and 13th. If you haven’t been before it is a fun celebration of music, art, and, of course, Tomatoes! Crowd levels in Five Points are always very high. Consequently, we won’t have the game library open until after 6 pm on Friday or Saturday to allow crowd levels to drop to a more manageable point. We also ask that people not come in with their own games until after that time as well. Trust us, you won’t want to be playing games before then – the humanity!

After six, come on in and play some games with us!

Critics agree – Game Point is fun!

Another website is picking up what we’re laying down here at Game Point Cafe. Hot on the heels of the acknowledgement of the great cafe we offer from Above Average Coffee, Only in Your State recently wrote an article extolling the virtues of Game Point. You can check out the article and great pictures on their website. They are spot on about how fun a night out at Game Point can be and have a compilation of some great pictures of the cafe as well.

Articles like this definitely help spread the word and let us do more fun stuff at Game Point! You can help too – leaving a positive review on sites like Facebook, Yelp, or TripAdvisor or just sharing a post on your social media platform of choice, all helps us to spread the word about the awesome world of board games and to further our community building goals. Thanks and Game On!

Game Point acknowledged as a great cafe!

Above Average Coffee is a website devoted to helping people make and find the best coffee around, or at least above average coffee. The site recently published a list of 9 great cafes in Nashville to get a great cup of coffee, and Game Point was one of the cafe’s recognized. You can check out the write up, and thumb our entry to get us to the top of the article, by visiting the article. We’ll keep doing all we can to make Game Point a great place to have a drink, some food, and play some games, but it’s always nice to get some positive feedback! Thanks to Above Average Coffee and to all of you that leave us positive reviews on Google, Yelp, Facebook, Trip Advisor, or your favorite corner of the internet!

Game on!

Sunday Dominion Event

Whether you’re a seasoned Dominion veteran or a new player looking to play a bunch of games, you need to be at Game Point Sunday, June 5th for our Dominion Tournament.  Sign up ahead of time or show up to register at 6 pm.  Then at 6:30 pm, you will play the first of three games of Dominion – every player will rotate through and try their luck at three different set ups.  We’ll look at everyone’s scores at the end of three rounds and the top four players will play a winner take all final game!  Winner will get their choice of a Dominion Expansion or a Game Point gift card!

There’s no fee for entering the event but each player is asked to spend a minimum of $15 on food and drink throughout the evening.

Cascadia Back in Stock

The new smash hit, Cascadia, from AEG has been flying off the shelves all winter. We just got a new shipment in this week. Grab your copy now!

In Cascadia, each turn you are tasked with selecting one of several combinations of animal tokens and land tiles. You will use the land to expand your map. Then place the animal token on one of your land tiles that match the animal’s habitat. Your goal is to place the animals in ways that match the scoring cards for this game. This game is simple to learn, engaging to play and fun! Come out to Game Point today to try it out – and maybe take home a copy, too!

Events are Coming Back to Game Point

That picture is from Game Point’s soft launch over four years ago. A simple time when we didn’t have to consider a global pandemic when planning how to play board games!

With case counts starting to slowly come down in Davidson County, we are going to slowly start bringing events back to Game Point. We’ve missed teaching you new games, hosting your fun groups, and just having the place hustling and bustling. We’ve added a whole new slate of events, from old favorites to new Learn to Play nights. Hopefully, there’s something you are looking for, and, if not, suggest something!

For the month of February, we are requesting that if you attend an event to please wear a mask – especially since events mingle people from different social circles. Thanks in advance and can’t wait to see you at the table!

Check out all our planned events on the Events Page.

Online Store Back Online!

We spent some time right after the start of the new year doing some inventory at the cafe and updating the online store. It’s back online for your convenience. It provides a rough real time view of what we have in the cafe for purchase. You can buy online and then come pick it up or grab it off the shelf when you’re at Game Point. Either way, we appreciate you buying local and supporting us!

Reduced Hours Saturday (1/8)

Roads are improving! If things are safe where you are, and you are ready to get out of the house, come have a hot drink and settle into a great board game! We’ll be open at 9 am until 7 pm tonight. Perfect for some late afternoon chai lattes and a game of Patchwork or after dinner hot chocolates and Medium. Come out and play with us.

(Haven’t played either of those games? You need to get in here and try them!)
