“For the boardgames addicts”
Reviewed 29 May 2016

For those who are into boardgames esp. those which won the coverted the German's Speil of de Jahres, then they should head to this place. It can be a bit tricky to find the place and it is located in the first floor. Gamers can spend time playing and trying boardgames for a fee charged on an hourly rate. The place also stocks and sells boardgames. You can get about 10%-20% discount on the boardgames if you became a member of the Maples club.

“Best place to hang out with friends ”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 via mobile

A cafe providing a comfortable place for boardgames lovers. They are renewing the types of boardgames from time to time. If you are new, welcome to learn. If you are experts, you are even more welcome to join others for a fun time.

Strongly recommending chocolate Nutella with marshmallow for drinks.

P/S : you may have a membership card if you plan to visit more often. Besides, it entitled you for a better discount in buying the games too.

“Tired of the ordinary board games you find in the store? Check this place out”
Reviewed 7 March 2016

This is my place to go whenever I needed to get some board games other than the ordinary ones that could be found in departmental stores or even toys r us. There is a wide selection of games here which you can bring a few friends to try it out (if you have the time). The staff were friendly and knowledgable with the products and their recommendation. Highly recommended for all.

“WARNING: Check purchases BEFORE PAYING”
Reviewed 1 August 2015

Very bad customer service. They will NOT process a refund on the spot if there is a defect in the purchase. Insisted that I email their supervisor who is not onsite.

Also outright lied about their supervisor coming in "soon" if i wanted the refund on the spot. Waited 45 mins then was rudely told that he was not coming and that it is somehow my fault for wanting to speak to supervisor. No care, no remorse from staff.

Ruined my niece's birthday present since I could not get 1 to 1 exchange of the defective product on spot which they even showed me they had in stock.

Highly recommend avoiding.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for taking the effort to put down this review.

I've been suitably informed about your case. Although we believe that this incident is perfectly avoidable if you follow the proper exchange procedure (as we comprehensibly advised upon your phone call, before your unnecessary visit), it was still regretful that the board game couldn't reach your niece on time.

Please also note that bodily assault, shouting or forcing for the person-in-charge will not change our standard procedure for exchange & refund. I would still advise you to lodge a formal email report if you meet me in person. And again, I need to highlight that the 45 minutes wait is unnecessary if you follow the proper procedure & we could have solve your issue within minutes if you lodge the email report.

Anyhow, we're pleased to receive your apology email subsequently & glad that we're able to assist you in solving your issue (within 30 minutes after your formal email report). :)

Regards,
LogCheng

“Something to do out of the ordinary”
Reviewed 20 May 2015

You do not need to be a board game geek to be here. All you need is a bunch of friends with sometime to kill. The selection of European boardgames here is extraordinarily huge, there will be eventually something for everyone. Bid farewell to your usual hangout activities and come play some boardgames for a change.
