Play at Fan Boy Three

From Magic: the Gathering to Warhammer, Dungeons and Dragons and dozens more games we have Facebook groups to connect with players and regular in store activities. 

We run more events than any other store, so something is always going on. And if you have never played before, we run lots of learn to play sessions and demos too.

Book at Fan Boy Three

Why not book a table at Fan Boy Three for you and your friends to meet up and play one of the hundreds of boardgames in our library?

Our Fan Boy Tea cafe serves drinks, snacks and sandwiches, and we'll even give you your table fee back as money off any boardgames you buy that day!
