We spent a few fun hours at Kingmakers, trying out four or five boardgames we've never played before. The staff was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We'll definitely be back!

It was nice to come somewhere were everyone was not constantly focused on their PDAs. The staff spends times introducing their vast assortment of board games while also serving light snacks and beverages. Lots of fun!
