Newest board game cafe has a library of more than 200 games.
We’re delighted to report that Mille Lavelle, a regular contributor to Tabletop Gaming, has opened her own board game café in Preston called Dice & Donuts. Millie secured funding for the venture as part of BID Preston’s Guild Merchant competition, alongside a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised more than £6,000 back in August.
Located in Preston city centre, Dice & Donuts has a library of more than 200 games ready to play and offers food, drinks and craft beers… should you wish to drown your sorrows after a particularly bad game of Carcassonne. There’s also an enthusiastic team of staff members who love board games, so if you’re looking for a recommendation about what to try next, they’ll be on-hand to offer suggestions.
Millie said: “The whole team have been working hard to get everything ready over the past few weeks. It’s so exciting for us all to finally be open, although it still doesn’t feel real.
“I don’t want to force lots of games in people’s faces because it’s much more fun when you discover them yourself. At the end of the day it’s just board games, where everybody gets together, puts the phones and laptops away and create memories.”
Dice & Donuts is located at 6 Butler Street, Preston and more details can be found at facebook.com/diceanddonuts
