Board game pubs are a growing national phenomenon, riding the popularity of large and complex tabletop games and RPGs. These establishments serve food and drink just like a sports bar or brewery, but they also sell memberships that unlock the chance to use a huge library of games at special gaming tables. And Bellingham is about to get its first.
The founders have been very active on Facebook, asking for community input on everything from menu to features. And they are currently crowdfunding for some of the features which they would like to add (but don’t have the budget for right away) like dimmable lighting at each table and an expanded library of games.
If tabletop games are your thing, or you think they might be if you knew a little more about them, keep one eye on Rook & Rogue’s facebook.
