The ever-increasing game cafes in Hong Kong invite you to the heart of the action in the city. In addition to established restaurants and many other top class pubs, the game cafes offer a different kind of experience. If you want to stay in over a few days to checkout all that it has to offer, there are many hotel apartments in Hong Kong such as Citadines Habourview Hong Kong that you can stay at. Without further ado, here are some of the top game cafes in the city:

Board games are also the signature element of Jolly Thinkers cafe. You will find more than 300 types of board games here: detective, party, role play, war and strategy. Most of these games are played best between two and 10 players. Of course, you cannot afford to memorise the rules of each and every game. All the same, there is hardly anything to worry about. The staff would willingly enlighten you on the rules whenever you embark on a new game.
Finally, we have Sweet & Fun cafe. It is a small place. You should probably opt out of this if you are scared of small enclosures. But this is otherwise, a must for anyone who appreciates the traditional art of graphics and storytelling.
