Geek On! The Loft Board Game Lounge?

On May the 22nd, Geek On! attended the grand opening of The Loft Board Game Lounge, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa. After many POW escape attempts were foiled, galactic empires conquered, and tropical islands saved, the Geek On! crew retired to compile their review. Having heard your compliments and criticisms, this is our review. Relive the discussion as host Kiernan Mac along with returning guest Simon Colverson ("Carleton's Beer Brothers") delve into discussing their preliminary thoughts on The Loft Board Game Lounge.

Also included in the episode, interviews from The Loft’s co-owners, Michael Hopkins and Alessandro Argentina, regarding the resurgent popularity of board games, their favorite board gaming memories, and their thoughts on opening a board game café in Ottawa.
