Bastard Café: Board Game Playground in the Centre of Copenhagen
We arrived at Bastard Café around 3PM and to our great luck there were still seats available. Attendance fee is DKK 25 or USD 5. This, of course, includes access to a myriad of board games. A one-year membership will set you back DKK 125 or USD 25. Each member can bring along one person for free. There were quite a lot of people on the Saturday afternoon we were there. We therefore had to wait in line for 15 minutes to order a small bucket of French fries, three pieces of æbleskriver with raspberry jam, coffee and Chai tea. We then waited for 45 minutes to get our order served. Though the snacks, beverages and service, needless to say, did not impress us, we enjoyed the boards games tremendously. So much so that we ended up spending five to six hours in the cafe playing all sorts of board games. Some, we liked. Others, we didn’t like so much.
Overall, though, we really enjoyed to be there. One small note though. Rather than “café”, they should probably call it “board game playground”. Also, don’t be surprised to see the word “motherf**ker” on the menu as that, apparently, is a very common expression among “nerds” and “geeks”.
