A new 14,000 square foot board game cafe is scheduled to open January 10 in Logan Square. Max Temkin, co-creator of the game Cards against Humanity, is behind the concept. The cafe will feature a library of over 1000 games. If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. There will be teachers to help you learn the rules. There will also be BYOG – Bring Your Own Game. Plus, the basement will feature two escape rooms. And, on top of all that, there will be a full-service menu along with wine, beer and cocktails. For more information, visit
