After the Sweetery Toronto Food Festival, I went uptown to join the friends who were playing board games at WoodForSheep Hobbies Ltd. as part of our Mon Sheong Trip to China fourth year reunion. I had heard of WoodForSheep before and was so pleased that their sitting fee for board games was so cheap. It was just $5 for all-you-can-play with no time limit!
WoodForSheep is located in Markham at 220 Royal Crest Court, Unit 3 (Birchmount Road and 14th Avenue). It wasn’t very big inside but had a sizable room for many tables and a very good collection of board games as well.
I thought that the name of their board game cafe was so creative — “Wood for Sheep” which plays on the common phrase used in the Setters of Catan board game.
Unlike some other board game cafes, they don’t serve drinks or snacks but they did have dry snacks for purchase on site. Their washrooms were very clean. The man who was on staff was super helpful when we weren’t sure about the rules for the Telestrations game. He even looked up the instructions for us online and printed it for us.
On this day, we played Anomia (I love that game), Telestrations, Sushi Go, and Exploding Kittens.
The table next to us was playing a very intense game of Dungeons and Dragons.
They have scheduled tournaments and leagues here too. What a neat little board game cafe!
Their website is very comprehensive with lots of board games listed in alphabetical order. If you join as a member, you can even rent out their board games to play at home!
