The best Sheffield gaming locations

Where to play games in Sheffield

Summer is almost over which often brings a strong turn in weather and a desperate need to find new fun things to do indoors. One of my favourite indoor hobbies is gaming or playing games. Whether that's table top games, video games or mobile games I find it always helps destress me. Luckily in Sheffield we have a whole plethora of gaming options so read below for my top Sheffield gaming locations

Sheffield Gaming

Treehouse Board Game Cafe

One of my absolute favourite places in the whole of Sheffield is the Treehouse Board Game Cafe its such an amazing space. It has a library of over 800 board games and you pay a cover charge to get access to all of the games. It has events regularly for bigger more complex games but we find it the perfect location for game date nights because the space is ultra welcoming, local beers and the most delicious Our Cow Molly milkshakes. The vast game library has also helped us find new favourites and have the opportunity to play before we buy. We now own our very own versions of popular games such as Carcassone and Ticket To RideIf you love board games but don't want to leave the house there are so many new online board game options to suit any mood
