It’s sad news.
After shutting the doors for 100 days during the lockdown, the Table Top Board Game Cafe on Castle Street is now closing for good.
The café’s entire Games Library will be available to buy at the Castle Street outlet from today, Thursday as well as Friday and Saturday from 12 noon daily, with fans of the business invited to snap up their favourite games at bargain prices.

Explaining their decision to close the city café, owners Chris Heinhold and Emer Kelly said their customer’s safety is front and centre:
“This has not by any means been an easy decision.” Chris shared on Facebook.
“Emer and I have agonised over what to do and how to move forward from this forced closure. At the end of the day, while social distancing remains one of the best ways for us to guard against this virus, and with the level of uncertainty around how to best reopen safely, we had to make a call.”
“Tabletop will still be here for you, albeit through a different medium. Our webstore will be going through some changes and improvements over the coming weeks, and we really hope that you will continue to stay in touch with us for recommendations, and just general chat about the games that we all love.”
