    Uh, beats me. I've never been there. Give them a call and ask?

    I googled around out of curiosity. There seem to be a lot of places like this.

    The Jolly Thinkers gets very busy, so much so that I think you need to book a table in advance and you maybe need to have a group. I'll ask around. We tend to be hermits though.

    Toys Club in Central have a much better variety of Board Games than Toys R Us or Sham Shui Po.

    Parties of 6 or more tend to gravitate toward hidden identity games which are incredibly fun in large groups. This includes games such Avalon, Secret Hitler, and Werewolf.
    From the Wheat and Wood article.

    I guess I have been out of it for a long time, had to look up what is "Secret Hitler (!)" and the rest.

    Here I was thinking backgammon, chess, monopoly, Mah Jong.

    Guess I need to get with the times.

    Try playing Splendor. We were recently introduced to it and hooked on it.

    while this is not a traditional board game, 'power is knowledge' this is a ps4 multi player quiz game which is suitable for up to 8 players and player assigned forfeits (to make it fairier) and the best aspect, every person have their own buzzer/controls with a mobile phone app and ps4 game, excellent party game
