April Showers bring New Games!

Over the course of the past month, we’ve stocked a bunch of new games at Game Point. We have choices perfect for playing in small groups of vaccinated friends or for your (hopefully) late stage Covid bubble. Check out our online shop or stop by the café (masked up please), grab a latte, and browse the shelves while you wait! One game that definitely deserves a look is Tussie Mussie . . .

Tussie Mussie was designed by Elizabeth Hargrave, before she became a megahit with those Wingspan birds, and is a ‘micro’ game from publisher ButtonShy Games. It is extremely portable – consisting of a small wallet filled with a couple dozen cards and rules. Don’t be fooled, there’s a lot of play in that small package! Read on to learn more about what this game has to offer!


Come Play with Us!

Looking for a job – come work for us!

Bongo East / Game Point is open right now for take out and game retail and we could use your help! As reopening plans develop, we need to develop our team, as well. If you like games or coffee or both(!), then drop us a line, we’d love to meet with you!

Extended Holiday Hours

Looking for that last minute holiday gift? Come on out to Game Point on Tuesday (12/22) or Wednesday (12/23) until 8 pm and cross everyone off your list. We’ll have a Game Coach on hand to help you pick that perfect present!

Buy 2 – Get 1 Free!

In conjunction with Asmodee Games, we are excited to announce a great sale on some of our most popular titles!

Starting today through October 18th, if you buy any two from a selection of great tiles, you get a third game for free! It is the perfect time to start some early holiday shopping, or to get some fun at home entertainment for the next few months.

Eligible titles include:

  • Catan
  • 7 Wonders (New Edition)
  • Carcassonne
  • Ticket to Ride
  • Pandemic

Head over to our online store or order at our pick up window on site. If ordering online, navigate to the Asmodee: Buy Two Get One section under Games and use the promo code “Asmodee” when you check out.

If something you are looking for is out of stock, drop us a line – we’ll be restocking throughout the sale!

Curbside Pickup expands to food and drink!

Starting today, Monday August 10th, not only can you order games from us for curbside pickup but you can get a latte or a sandwich to go along with it. We are excited to reopen our food and drink offerings for curbside pickup! We have installed a temporary window at the cafe; you can order there or order online and have it ready for when you arrive. Either way, we are asking everyone to please wear a mask!

Curbside hours have expanded to 7 am until 2 pm, seven days a week (until 4 pm on the weekends).

As we’ve said all along, as much as we want to host you all, we are committed to not reopening the gaming library and in person operations until it is safe to do so for our staff and customers. Thanks for your patience and, in the meantime, if there’s anything we can provide, we’ll see you curbside!

Online Ordering Maintenance

Starting at 8 pm today, Wednesday, August 5th, the online ordering portal for Game Point will be down for maintenance. We are preparing for Monday (Aug. 10) when you will be able to start ordering food and drink curbside along with our games! Thanks to everyone that has been supporting Game Point through the online store over the past month – excited that we will soon be able to expand your options.

Game Delivery and Curbside Pickup!

Looking for some new “at home” entertainment? Starting Monday, June 23rd, Game Point is now offering curbside pickup of retail game purchases on Tuesdays and Fridays and limited delivery on Wednesdays!

Although Nashville is entering Phase 3, it will still likely be some time until we can relaunch operations here at Game Point. To serve the community in the meantime, you can shop and order from our retail game selection online. Head over to this page (or click the “Shop” link above) to get all the details and to start shopping.

Status Update – Still Closed

Game Point, along with all of the other Bongo World locations, remains closed right now. Despite the loosening of Nashville’s Stay at Home orders allowing restaurants to operate, operating safely in the current environment is difficult for a restaurant.  That risk doubles when you add in a library of hundreds of awesome board games.  So until we can provide a safe environment, we will remain closed.  The earliest that we could likely resume operations is Nashville’s Phase Three of the Roadmap for Reopening, when “bars and entertainment venues” can reopen.

Over the past few weeks, we have made some “emergency” game deliveries for customers that need a new title.  We are going wide with that service later this week — we’ll be adding board game curbside pick up and deliveries. Stay Tuned!

And be sure to drop us a note on social media and let us know all the fun stuff you are playing while at home!

Stay safe and keep playing!

Closed for Now . . .

What a week it has been! Last week we were hosting Euchre Night and getting ready to take our retail stock to Tennessee Game Days. Then the tornadoes of March 2 hit and changed everything.

Thank you for all the messages of concern we received. We were truly luck that Bongo East / Game Point was minimally damaged in the storms. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about our neighborhood. There will be a lot of rebuilding that needs to be done!

For the immediate time being, we are closed. Our equipment is intact and the game library survived the winds, but we are without power, internet and access to the building. We will keep you abreast of developments here and on our social media.

In the meantime, please help those that you can – donate some time or money to those effected by the storms. We look forward to seeing you around the gaming tables sometime soon!

Catan Final Prelim Rankings

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!
