Well there’s no other good place to have tabletop lifestyle than Ludo Board games Bar and Cafe, together with your friends, family, best bud or special someone, Ludo can vouch for an all-day fun dine in experience.
The hustle and bustle Scouts of Quezon City is the home of Ludo: Board games Bar and Cafe (Scout Torillo corner Scout Fuentebella). I went their together with my sister and arrived later than our reservation time. It’s just a good thing that we made a reservation way before because the place was jazzed up with diners and competitive players when we came.The place is spacious and fitting for more than 30 patrons, so feel free to tag along as many friends as you can!
The word Ludo is the Latin term of “play” and opened their doors in March of 2014. The restaurant is owned by 6 board game enthusiasts who came up with the concept and who also personally owns some of the board games that you will see piled up in the shelves. With their interior, you’ll see their walls covered with huge paintings inspired by the Dixit board game. Well, I bet they’ve asked its publisher to blow up and turn some of it into paintings for their walls. They’ve got over 600 games to play so you’ve got tons to choose from.
For the food, you can actually have their signature drinks or any of their Donburi rice bowls. We ordered Tonkatsu (Php 195.00), Katsudon (Php 195.00), Nachos (Php 250.00), and Vanilla Milkshake (Php 185.00). I do recommend that you order an appetizer especially the Nachos! It is a must! It is good for 2-3 persons, so while you are waiting for your orders you can have their nachos to start up the game with your friends

We played 3 board games, Dobble, it is a game of speed, object and reflex where in you race to find that identical object you see in your card and with the given card from the deck. TocToc Woodman, a dexterity game like Jenga. Your objective is to peel of the bark from the trunk using two hits with an axe. And Blokus, a strategic game where you get to play with tetris blocks. Your goal is to place as much as possible all your blocks in the set, and whoever has the lesser blocks left wins. Honestly, we really don’t know how to play those games, but they have an approachable crew who has long patience and willing to teach you of how the game is played. And if you don’t have any game in mind, no sweat, they will suggest games for you! If ever you’re interested with the games and want to have one to share with your other friends,you can buy it from them.

Ludo Boardgame Bar and Cafe is really a good place for friends and game enthusiasts. It is a place where some friendships might end because no one wants to leave without winning a game, which almost happened to us (just kiddin’) and also a place for some chill-outs and fun. I remember Martin, one of the staff, shared to me that they rarely have the usual board games (i.e. Monopoly, Scrabble) they go for the games that are not locally seen in the market that’s why I guess you’ll keep on coming back because there’s really a whole lot to play and to choose from. Also, I asked why they opted to have a board game theme and atmosphere for Ludo rather than the usual ones, and he said ‘It wasn’t for the restaurant why their is Ludo. It was actually for the board games. The owners want to share their games to the people and for them to enjoy that’s why they come up with Ludo’
