How many people can the biggest table accommodate?
We have a few large tables/booths that can comfortably seat 6-8 people but can squeeze in up to 10.

Are dogs allowed in the event/play space?
Dogs are allowed! We even have some dog treats behind the counter that the staff love to offer our furry friends! We do not have any breed bans.
Our dog rules are: all dogs must be on a leash at all times, leashes must be held or attached to your table/chair, no dogs can be left unattended, and dogs must be kept out of the main walkways. As a forewarning: if your dog acts aggressively, excessively barks/whines, or causes other patrons distress you may be asked that your pet leaves the space.

Are children welcome?
Yes! Kids of all ages are welcome in our play space. We have a wide selection of games for ages 2 and up! 
Adults with children are expected to supervise their children at all times and help them maintain inside voices and walking feet. Our play space is not designed to be used as a daycare, playroom, or jungle gym.
Board games come with many pieces that are easy to misplace, please be conscious of collecting all the pieces and checking the floor when putting games away.
We encourage families of small children to open/play one game at a time and to pay attention to the age range on the game boxes when picking out what to play together. Please be aware that games far beyond the child's age may have a lot of small and fragile pieces.

What outside food & drinks are allowed?
Queen Anne Ave has lots of great eateries and coffee shops. Feel free to pick up some take-out or coffee and bring it in!
Folks are welcome to bring in take-out and drinks from outside of the shop with some restrictions.
No outside alcohol is allowed inside, including alcohol-free beers & wines.
No catering services or buffet-style food/snack spreads, this includes the use of catering equipment such as food warmers or large coolers/ice buckets.
