My past posts clearly indicate that I love playing games, but I don’t always feel like going to a bar to do so. That’s why I was so excited to stumble upon the Bonus Round Game Cafe. It’s the first dedicated board game cafe in Chicago.
What makes Bonus Round unique is that they have hundreds of different board or card games that you can play with your friends that go beyond the classics like Clue or Guess Who.
There are a lot of options, so if you don’t know where to begin with choosing a game, a staff member will make recommendations based on your group’s interests and teach you. For example, my friends and I asked for a game where you don’t have to think, and the staff member brought us a few options and explained the rules. We had a ton of fun learning a new game (I even bought it later to play at home!).
Bonus Round has a number of different coffee or tea-based drinks, snacks to munch on, and beer and wine options.
I definitely recommend taking a break from the touring and relaxing at Bonus Round for an evening or afternoon.
