Hi, my name's Gerald, and I'd like to invite all of you to the opening of Game Crab Boardgame Cafe (target date is middle of April), located at the 2nd floor of FBR Building, Loyola Heights, Katipunan, Quezon City (above Yellow Cab -- across Ateneo).

Game Crab is patterned from the likes of Mind Cafe, Settlers, etc., from Germany, Korea, Japan and Singapore. We carry boardgames like World of Warcraft, Cashflow, Descent, Cranium, Zertz, Settlers of Catan, Quiddler, Scrabble and MORE (as we continually try to update our boardgame base with the latest, craziest, zaniest, queerest, rarest and best games)! We try to ensure that we are able to cater to young adults, families, casual gamers and hardcore gamers alike!

We'll also be hosting monthly tournaments and weekly night of champions. And we'll be serving great tasting yet affordable meals as well! So please come visit us as we look to further expand the horizons of boardgaming here in the Philippines!

1st BGame cafe in the Philippines.
I've been away from the Philippines from 1995-2005,
so was kinda dismayed that there wasn't any BG cafes when I returned that time.
cry
Just wanna confirm w/ ppl (who knows) here if Game Crab is the FIRST ever BG cafe that existed in the country (or Manila for that matter).

Much obliged.

I feel like gamecrab did not make it and may be closed.

There are a lot more cafes now. Ludo and Puzzles may be some of the better ones?

Yes. Gamecrab closed long ago. IIRC Raiyfe mentioned something about not wanting to renew his lease as the building he was in wanted him to transfer to another floor, despite paying for the area's renovations (I suppose you can just ask him directly). And yes, Gamecrab was technically the first boardgame cafe in the Philippines. There's a lot that have sprung up as of late though.
