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

WHAT IS THE COVER CHARGE?

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.

ARE CHILDREN WELCOMED AT THE CAFÉ?

Of course! Most of our games are appropriate for children, and we have a selection chosen specifically for their enjoyment.

CAN WE BOOK A TABLE?

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

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN GAMES?

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!

CAN WE HIRE / PART-HIRE OUT THE VENUE FOR PARTIES, FUNCTIONS, ETC.?

Yes, this is the service that we are happy to offer. Please call ahead with maximum time possible to ensure that you are able to secure as much of the venue as you need.

HOW CAN WE FIND UNPLUG + PLAY?

Our full address is 17 Jefferies Passage, Guildford, GU1 4AP. If you’re driving in, High Street parking is free after 6pm and on Sundays, otherwise use town centre car parks. For those training in, we are about a 10 minutes’ walk from both Guildford Station and London Road Station.

ANY EXTRA SCHEMES? GIFT CARDS, LOYALTY CARDS?

Yes to both! We are developing a gift card scheme, and refining how our loyalty card system will work. It’ll likely be a membership that grants you a half-price cover charge, amongst other perks. Final details will be updated here and posted on our social media!
