WHAT I THINK: This place was awesome! Anyone who loves board games or is looking for something “different” to do, without spending tons of cash would love this place. The environment is in a safe and inviting location, and the owners obviously love what they do. My friends and I were able to go in and give them an idea of the kind of game we wanted to play, and the owner came out with a suggestion. He then explained how to play in English and in Portuguese, and we had a great night! We were also able to order some burgers from the food truck right outside the place, but they also had no problem with us ordering food from other places.


HOW TO GET THERE: Taxi or Uber. Taxis tend to be available in the area, but download the SINDITAXI PASSAGEIROS APP (google play), just in case you don’t see any on the streets.

ADDRESS: Rua República do Líbano, 669 – Meireles, Fortaleza – CE, 60160-140
