The trend of board game cafe's that's already hit Asia, Canada and many other locales is coming soon to Spokane. Local resident Jennifer DeHart is planning to open a new board game café called Around the Board in Downtown Spokane.
Around the Board will be located at 9 S. Washington and take about 1,000 square feet of storefront space in the STCU / Hutton Building. The café will have no cover charge ( which is apparently common of other board game cafe's ) and many board games to play / board game themed décor throughout the business.
Around the Board held a Kickstarter fundraising campaign recently which was un-successful. However, the business will still open without this funding as the Kickstarter was for equipment, etc. . The business location and logo ( seen below ) are already secure.
Around The Board will be a family friendly establishment with espresso drinks, sandwiches , bakery items and much more.
And, speaking of the board game themed décor Around The Board will have a Where's Waldo Wall , a chalkboard wall for Pictionary and more. Seating for 50 will also be included in the space.
Opening date has yet to be set but will likely be in late April. No web site has been set up, but a basic Facebook page is online now and can be found at-
