Hey everyone and welcome to the Weekly Update! This is something we've been doing on the Discord Server but now we are bringing it over here as well. It's where we check-in and just let everyone know what's going on at your friendly neighbourhood board cafe.

Changes in the Cafe

So, with "Freedom Day" out of the way, we are putting the game collection back out across the cafe as we had it before lockdown and opening up another table upstairs that has been covered with games!

Table Booking Changes

We will also be changing up table bookings closer to what we had before lockdown. Table bookings will now require a £5 non-refundable deposit total, which will come off the bill at the end of the session. The hope is to make it easier than ever to book in advance to come play games once more in the cafe!

Children gaming at Meeple Perk

Children 10 or under now can game at Meeple Perk for half the price!

Social Gaming

For those of you who have missed social gaming in person, we are going to look to return this to the cafe. Our first social gaming will be on 30th July from 6 pm until 9 pm. We will be limiting social gaming to 6-8 people (Either two tables of 4 or one table of 6) and will require people to book ahead via our website. More on this coming soon!

RPG Bookings

Wanting to run an RPG Game at Meeple Perk for your friends? Well, we have just the thing for you! Group bookings for RPG sessions!

We have two packages, Standard and Deluxe for you to choose from.

The Standard package is £25 for a 3-hour session for up to 6 people and includes a small hot/iced drink or soft drink for everyone.

The Deluxe package is £35 and includes the same as Standard, but also adds snacks! Chips + Dip, Onion Rings + Dip, Nachos and Homemade Chicken Strips or Falafel Bites + Dip.

We'll be announcing when this is available shortly.

That's all folks!

As always, stay safe out there everyone and continue to be the amazing community that you are!

How things will change at Meeple Perk!

So, it’s finally happened, restrictions are lifting! But, how will this affect your friendly local board games cafe and your visits?

Moving forward we would still ask anyone attending the cafe to wear a mask when not seated, this is to keep us (your wonderful hosts) safe! We have sadly only had one vaccine jab each and as a small team we are in an unfortunate position where if one of us tests positive the venue will have to close until we are both given a clean bill of health!

(This could be disastrous for us as a small business!)

The staff, Drew and Rhi, will also continue to wear masks, and the plastic screens at the till point and coffee pick up point will remain in place until we feel it is safe to take them down.

We will still be quarantining and cleaning the games after they are played. Just because social distancing has ended, doesn’t mean suddenly the virus couldn’t be passed on pieces so to keep you all safe we’ll still quarantine games for 72 hours and then clean the pieces afterwards.

We ask you to still remain seated when in the cafe and allow us to serve you at your table. We will get the games for you and bring them to you, as well as take your food and drinks orders at the table. This is to reduce the likelihood of spread of Covid-19 in the cafe and keep you safe.

What will change?

We will be returning the games library to the shelves, as they were in 2019, and opening up our other large table again. This means we’ll be able to increase our seating capacity slightly!

There may also be small changes to our opening times, and we may open Thursdays for gaming! We’ll make these changes as demand increases!

We will also be welcoming back some events, such as our Social Gaming Nights, in person in the cafe. Further details to follow as we discuss the safest way to reintroduce smaller events.

What about games rentals?

We will still be offering games rentals to anyone who would prefer to play at home, that won’t change and you can check out the full details on our website!

And that’s it, we take your safety seriously here so we won’t be changing much. We would love things to return to how they were before but want to ensure we and you are safe and that none of us aid the spread of Covid-19.

Stay safe, keep washing your hands and we’ll see you soon!

Love Rhi & Drew!
