Black Friday at our Hillsboro Village Location

What better way to celebrate our new retail location than a Black Friday promotion?! Starting Friday, November 25th, and running all weekend long, spend $100 on games at our Hillsboro Village location and receive a coupon for $15 off a purchase in January! Spend $200, get two coupons for a total of $30 off – they just keep stacking!

The $100 total must be before tax and doesn’t include gift card purchases. Promotion is not in effect at the cafe in East Nashville, this time.

Hope you’ll come by (1804 21st Avenue South) and start your holiday shopping early with us! Open 10 am to 6 pm all weekend.

Events Postponed

Due to some conditions outside of our control, we are going to have to postpone Lord of the Rings Trivia and Solforge Fusion Launch Event that were scheduled to happen this week. We have plans to bring them both back in the near future – so keep an eye out on the Game Point calendar as we update it for November and December throughout this week. Thanks for your understanding and Game On!

Game Point : The Retail Expansion

It seems like lately every good board game inevitably gets an expansion to add more content to the game. Game Point has taken a page from that trend and is proud to announce our newest expansion, Game Point – A Game Store. It’s been almost five years since our board game cafe launched in the Five Points neighborhood and we thought it was about time to spread our particular brand of board game love to other parts of the city.

So, starting Saturday, October 22, Game Point – A Game Store, will launch in Hillsboro Village (1804 21st Avenue South to be exact). We have been hard at work creating a fun retail space to complement our great play space in East Nashville. We can’t wait for you to visit – to start, we will be open Thursday to Sunday each week (10 am to 4 pm on Thursday, 10 am – 6 pm the rest of the weekend). Thanks for the past five years – here’s to another five of helping great gaming to happen all over Nashville!

Tuesday Nights have Leveled Up!

Picture of crowded evening, blurred

Tuesday evenings at Game Point we have traditionally hosted a series of game specific events – chess night, word games, etc. Then a few months ago, we launched Game Point Game Night on the last Tuesday of the month. Game Point Game Night was a chance to come on out to Game Point if you were looking to play some games but didn’t have a group of people that wanted to come out with you – a way to meet new people and play some games. It’s been a blast – we’ve played things from all over the gaming spectrum – party games like Medium and Long Shot the Dice Game, word games like Letter Jam, strategy games like Dominion, and new games like Art Decko and Akropolis. But why limit the fun to just the last Tuesday of the month?

Now EVERY Tuesday is Game Point Game Night – we are running them concurrently with the game focus for that Tuesday. So, for example, if you come out the second Tuesday and want to play Euchre or some other trick taking game, you can OR you can jump into any other type of game as well OR you can do both and swap back and forth. More options, more fun, more gaming – Tuesdays at Game Point are the place to be. So come on out, grab a drink or a snack, and play some games!

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.

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!

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.
