We offer our members the ability to rent most of our library out for 48 hours, which is perfect if you have a party at a friends house or want to try a longer game out to see if you want to buy it in the future.
To rent out games, you need to have a monthly membership – any of our paid membership packages including off-peak will allow you to rent out games.
How much does it cost?
Renting a game costs £3 for gold members and £4 for family and personal members. This is a flat price per game, regardless of the size or value of the game. There is no deposit required.
Are there any games I can’t rent?
We don’t rent out any of the games in our gaming guide, as we like to have those available to people in the cafe.
That means the following games are not available to rent right now: Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, King of Tokyo, 7 Wonders, Dominion, Sushi Go, Takenoko, Cash and Guns, Ultimate Werewolf, Dobble, Bucket of Doom, Avalon, Codenames, Mafia de Cuba, Bang!, Pandemic, Hanabi, Flash Point, Forbidden Island, Mice and Mystics and Dixit.
Can I reserve games?
You can reserve games on Facebook to pick up the next day, but you must pick up the games before 6pm if they are reserved as we will remove them from the library for you the day before.
How many games can I rent at once?
You can rent a maximum of three games at any one time.
What happens if I reserve on Saturday but you are closed Monday?
Saturday reservations may be bought back on Tuesday.
What happens if games are broken, damaged or lost?
We ask that you sign a quick form when you rent out games that cover what happens if there is any loss or damage.
When a game is returned we will check to make sure it has been returned with all the pieces. In the case of small missing pieces or minor damage, you will be charged the cost of replacing the individual pieces. In the case of major damage or loss of a game, you will be charged the wholesale cost of the game.
Can you make this available to non-members?
Right now due to the possibility of theft or damage we are only offering this to members. In the future if the rental system proves popular we may offer this to non-members using a deposit system.
