Unfortunately sometimes a good idea isn't enough, Location plays such a vital part in any brick and mortar business and board game cafes are no exception.
Cafe Myriad in Northbridge is unfortunately ending its 5 year run and Perth's only board game cafe will auction off its 300 games. This is a sad day for the hobby in Australia, with all this coming dispite a push to make the area more attractive for families.
Manager Marty Brookshaw said "Customers come here a lot playing the same game each time. They might just buy the game. The last Jenga tower has been built in Perth's only board game cafe. Until something is gone, nobody is going to miss us."
So long Cafe Myriad, you will be sorely missed, what do you think? Is a Board Game cafe a viable business venture? What could they have done differently?
