Due to the current COVID-19 situation we’ve closed the cafe part of our business, but we’re still doing board games sales, and takeaway drinks and cakes. Rather than letting our board games sit there gathering dust though we’re now doing Board Games Rentals!
So how does it work? Well nice and simply of course with two options to choose from:
Pay As You Go: £10 to borrow any 2 board games for 1 week.
Gameaway Pass: £15/month subscription to borrow 2 games at a time, bring them back and choose 2 more to take away! Maximum borrow time of 2 weeks on each game.
Further to that, as a special treat for our existing members (both Gold and Platinum), you’ll get a third bonus game every time of our choosing, aka the Dealer’s choice.
You can either collect the games instore, or if you’re still self isolating at home we do a delivery service for an extra £3.
Here's some of our favourites, but be sure to check out our complete list too!
|Dobble||Exploding Kittens||Hungry Hungry Hippos||The Logo Game|

About Unplug + Play
What is a board games cafe? Imagine a normal cafe but with a twist - our walls are decked with over 400 board games! A cover charge of £6 per person reserves your table for 3 hours, gives you access to our library of games, and the knowledge and expertise of our Games Gurus.
Game Gurus will recommend board games based on your interests, party size, experience and time availability. They’ll then set up the game, and run you through the rules in a fun and understandable way. Basically, we do the boring stuff, you do the fun stuff - playing!
At Unplug + Play, we cater for everyone; families and children, groups of friends curious about a new activity, hardcore board game hobbyists, Dungeons & Dragons adventurers, and everyone in between. Drop in and explore our vast collection of games any time - we are located in Jeffries Passage, Guildford, between the top of the High Street and North Street. We look forward to welcoming you!

Frequently asked questions
The cover charge is £6 per person. This fee secures your table for three hours, gives you access to our varied collection of over 300 board games, and provides friendly, helpful, Game Gurus to help you choose, and explain the rules.
Of course! Most of our games are appropriate for children, and we have a selection chosen specifically for their enjoyment.
You can, and we recommend that you do so. Particularly if you have a large party, or if you want to come play in evenings and weekends when we are likely to be busy. Please call 01483 570873 to talk to a friendly member of our team or online here
Sure! We’re unable to stock every game that we’d like, so if you’re looking for a vibrant, gaming atmosphere, or a meeting place for your friends, please feel free to bring your own games in. You’ll still need to pay the cover charge, but it’ll be worth it - our Game Gurus can decide any rules squabbles!
