About

G’day all you board game lovers! After few month preparations, we are so proud to announce that Miss D’s café & board games is officially open now in Melbourne. 

In Miss D’s café & board games, you will have brilliant coffee, plus the access to an extensive library of board games, including strategy, family, party, abstract and children’s games. Apart from this, we are also serving lunch and dinner along with snacks and desserts. Our friendly staff will not only serve food but also teach and recommend board games. 

In order to bring Miss D’s café and board games to the next level, we still have a lot of work to do and obviously we cannot achieve this without money. Please support us to reach our target, your pledge means everything to us. In return, please check out our awesome rewards and on site deals!

Where we are?  

The address of Miss D’s café & board games is 1144, Burke Road, Balwyn North, VIC, 3104. We are only 12km from Melbourne CBD. The public transportation close by is tram 48, bus No.200 and 207. There is plenty of free parking at the back. 

 

How will it work? 

With only $8 dollars, you will have one free coffee or tea or a canned soft drink of your choice with unlimited time of playing board games. If you don’t want to play board games, you just pay whatever you having. Our membership cards will be ready soon, it is a great saver if you come regularly.

What is on our menu? 

There will be a selection of gourmet coffees, teas and soft drinks, as well as our home made plum juice. Our lunch and dinner are mainly Japanese food which is very popular in Australia. Our snacks include Chips and chicken pops. Every Friday & Saturday night, we have lamb/chicken BBQ skewers available which is everyone’s favorite. For the desserts, we have muffins, green tea cakes, raspberry cheese cakes and especially our homemade puddings (lychee, mango, green tea, almond and taro).

What you can play?  

Our game library has about 200 games so far. We got you covered with family, strategy, abstract, party, thematic and even children’s games. Our game gurus (Oscar & James) have been playing board games for many years; all games are carefully selected. Oscar and James are also following the latest board game news and reviews. We will try our best to have all the popular games up to date in our library. 

   

How we will use the fund?  

Compare to a typical and successful board game café like MOX Boarding house, the quantity of the games that we have is just a piece of cake. Firstly we would like to use the funds to stock more games. Secondly, we plan to get the local carpenter to make couple of professional gaming tables for our private party game room. Thirdly, we plan to install some new signage for the front and back of the café. Our beautiful courtyard needs to be upgraded with sunshade and more tables and chairs. And last, we will use the fund to start our marketing campaign such as website update, membership cards, online ordering and delivery and board game competitions. Thank you and please support us!

Meet the team  

Briny

Briny is the creator of Miss D’s café and tea house which is the predecessor of Miss D’s café & Board games. She was a professional brewer since 2010 and she has been in the café business for many years. Her passion about coffee is like Tom Vasel for board games. Her superb skills of making coffee are well recognized by the local people. Yan is also a board game lover, her favorite game is werewolf.  

Oscar 

  

Oscar has been playing board games for 9 years. His journey of playing board games started in late 2007 when he bought the playstation3 game called “Eye of Judgment”. Soon he realized how amazing a card game could be and started playing board games. His favorite game designer is Bruno Cathala, game reviewer is Dan king, the game boy geek. He wishes one day he could design his own board games.  

James  

James started playing board games in 2011. In 2012, he took a position as a managing assistant for a big board game distributor in China called “One moment games”. His favorite board game publisher is CGE. He likes card games a lot especially deck building games such as Dominion and Ascension. American role-playing and family games is also another area he is so interested in.

Risks and challenges

Our risk is low because the board game café has been open for business already. We had the trial before we open. The café is fully managed by Briny who has strong experience of running a café. Our possible risk could be delays in fit outs, board games purchases and the actual dispatch date for all the kick starter rewards because we have spent a lot of money for the café set up, so please support us, your support will drive us to succeed in our business venture.
