Welcome to Cakes n Ladders
Cakes n Ladders is Auckland’s premier gaming café. We welcome all persuasions, from hard-core gamers, to families, couples on a date, and groups of friends looking for a space to spend time together. Our gaming library features a growing collection of card and board games, including traditional family games, Euro games, games featured on TableTop and more. The concept is modelled after popular overseas board game cafés such as Castle in Toronto and Draughts in London. Customers who wish to play games pay just $2.50 an hour per person to access our wonderful library of games in our funky, comfortable café.
Hopefully you’re aware that Cakes n Ladders is hosting our third International TableTop Day on Saturday the 28th of April but did you we also made a promotional video about it?
We partnered with our friends at the Speakeasy to make this masterpiece last year and it totally still works. Check it out, top notch!
Basically on par with what Geek and Sundry made but at a fraction of the cost.
The theme for last year’s International TableTop day was How have Board Games changed your life? We really liked that theme and wanted to hear more of your stories so we’re working on some new content that showcases what makes Cakes n Ladders really special. The community.
Updates and details on TableTop day can be found here on our FaceBook page.
