July brought the promise of the arrival of a board game cafe, Knight Moves, to Coolidge Corner, and indeed it has arrived; it opened quietly in November and grandly in December. There are snacks and coffee, but the main attraction is the game library (think Citadels, Gauntlet of Fools, Settlers of Catan, Wiz War, and lots more) and the ample tables upon which to play. Visitors can pay $10 admission for a single visit, or there are a few membership options for frequent gamers.
Knight Moves is open every day, beginning bright and early at 7am on weekdays and 11am on weekends. It closes at 11pm Sunday through Thursday and 2am Friday and Saturday. For future improvements, the cafe hopes to increase the size of the game library, upgrade chairs and tables, expand the menu and staff, and more.
