Game Rental Program

One of our favorite elements of a board game café is having a library of games that you can come in and play. How do you know what you like if you never try it? Our library gives you a chance to try a game before you buy it or to bring out the perfect party game for when you have a gathering of family or friends. 

We want to put our Game Library to work. We have over 100 demo games and its always expanding. We are not open yet, but we want to share these wonderful games with you! Now, you can rent a game, try it out, then turn it back in.

Check out the Game Rental Library here.

How it works

  • You can rent games by the day. Renting costs 10% of MSRP pricing per day.

  • A day is considered to be the day of delivery until 3pm the next day. Just notify us that you are ready for pickup by 3pm and we will come and get it.

  • The cost of a rental applies towards a future purchase of that game. If you love it, buy it!

  • Free delivery and free pickup!

  • To rent,  go to the Shop and select your game. Rental games will have an option to Buy or Per Day Rental. Select Rent and you are good to go! 

  • Order before 3 pm and receive the game same day. If you want it on a future day, write us a note at checkout.

  • When you are finished, contact us and we will come and pick it up. Any extra days will be charged at pickup. 

  • We do not have a drop-off or pickup option at this time, but it's coming soon! All game deliveries must be within 15 miles of Mattoon, IL.
