I just saw that a new shop is opening on the 1st of May. The Settlers Café shop didn't last long, but maybe it's because of the odd mix between a café/restaurant/game shop.
Apparently, this new shop is completely focused on games (boardgames, card games, miniatures, etc.), not on selling you beer, french fries or sandwiches...

More info there:BATTLEFIELD BANGKOK

I'll be there on the opening day!

This is awesome. I've been keeping my eye on their site every now and then, but now when I'm back in Thailand later this year I'll have to swing by and check it out.

Hi Guys

Thanks Mike for the intro, I meant to swing by and post myself but been a tad busy with boxes and shelves :laugh:

Yes we're confirmed to open May 1 at 10AM. We have a mass of Board Games, RPGS, Miniatures Games, Card games and a few games that don't fit into any of those categories! Three gaming tables and we're going to get one one that is better for small kids too.

The only drink we sell is coffee and tea, THB 20 a Mug (Feel free to bring your own super tanker)

I look forwards to seeing everyone there!

Cheers

Chris

It looks clean, spacious and professional. Nicely modern with a decent amount of natural light looking at the window size.
Very nice job indeed, great place.

Thank you, yes front window is nice and big, we have a pvt back room which is a bit lacking in sun light but is nice and big and seperate from the rest of the store for folks who want a little more privacy, especially RPG sessions :)

So I got there on Sat. 5 Sept. Nice place. Enjoyed a game of "Liar's Dice" and then "Pandemic". There was a friendly crowd - good place to drop in and play a game. Quick bus ride from any of the Sukhumvit BTS stations (On Nut is the last BTS station that is currently open) -- 8 baht fare (i.e. about $0.25 USA) on the 2, 23, or 25 bus (don't be a wuss and take a taxi - it's only 3km - why pay a higher taxi fare and be stuck in traffic anyways? ).

They have a good selection of current Euro type games and RPGs for sale, and a big collection of open games to check out. Some pretty good eats nearby, and a McDonalds next door for the less adventerous traveller.

Hi Paul

Great to see you here last weekend, though I think I was deep in to a VTES game at the time and blurred out the rest of the store :p

Cheers

Hi Peer

Look forward to see you here, we decided not to bring in King of Siam as we didn't want to risk any form of "misunderstanding" with the authorities.

Cheers
