Who We Are

From first-timers to veteran players, we will bring gamers of all skill levels to the table — guiding, teaching, or simply providing a hot coffee, a cold beer, or a delicious bite to friends and family who have come to spend time together in a fun, safe, engaging environment. We are creating an environment where togetherness is celebrated and community is valued. All are welcome, regardless of race, gender, or creed.

Beyond our cafe, our local offerings, and our large library of game titles, Cardboard Corner is committed to serving our community by hosting gaming events and tournaments, parties, and charity events in-house. From local brews to local art; from quick, fifteen-minute games to three-hour epics; from charity gaming marathons to Dungeon Master bootcamps, Cardboard Corner will be a gathering place.

Whether it’s a weekday lunch, a quick meeting that just might include cards and dice, a casual and fun game night, or an intense weekend competition, you will see it at our tables. We strive to bring you a place for great food and great games, a place where community is valued and strengthened, a place where strangers can sit down to game and leave as friends.

Explore Our Events

In addition to the cafe space, we are creating private gaming and event rooms to host incredible community events. In the meantime, check out the events and classes we host at Tabletop Game and Hobby.

What did you play this weekend?

We played Tales from the Loop, Marvel Champions: The Card Game, and started character creation for a new #dungeonsanddragons campaign. It was really nice to get a small break this weekend and game for a few hours!
