Unlike other board game areas, this one requires you to pay 100.00 for staying and playing their boardgames. This way you don't have to worry if you've ordered every three hours or each of you already ordered a meal or what. Plus their interior is so cute and well ventilated.

We had so much fun! 128514

OMG MULTIPLE PHOTOS.

OMGOMGOMGOMG

Anyway! Met up with friends on a weekday here, hindi matao unlike pag weekends. Ganda nung place! I like the ambiance! It's very... game-ish. Hahaha. Unli play for 100 PHP per head. So yep, we played Exploding Kittens! Try this game too! Masisira friendship niyo wahaha jk.

As for the food, I had the bacon and egg rice meal (170 PHP). Ang masasabi ko lang, masarap siya – pero ang liit ng serving. 128543 bow.

Went here one afternoon after a seminar with a few friends. The place is small, with less than ten tables. Shelves of board games line one wall while posters are hung on the other.

We got their calamares, their version of the mojos and some fried oreos. Food tasted okay, although their appetizers along with their sandwiches and pastas I remember being pricey. 128561 They offer drinks such as teas, coffees and milkshakes as well. They also charge an extra 100 pesos per person to use the board games. There's wi-fi, though!

We started playing right away and someone was there ready to assist us if we needed help with the rules and such. We stayed a couple of hours before we headed out. Overall, a fairly good place to spend with friends to enjoy some competitive or cooperative fun!

After weeks of trying to find time, I finally got to try Puzzles!! My first tip: if you're visiting on a weekend or a holiday, reserve a table before coming. Since there are only about 7-8 tables inside and playing board games could take long hours, I don't recommend putting yourself on the waitlist. They open at 3pm from Tuesday-Sunday and close at 12 mn (except on Fridays and Saturdays, they close at 2am).

There are a lot of board games to choose from, and you could ask for a game master to teach or facilitate the game.

They have the usual cafe food: sandwiches, potato fritters, milkshakes etc. Quality's okay but quite pricey. We spent a total of Php 600+ for the food (panini sandwich, mojos, wicked oreos and iced tea). You have to pay for the board games though whether or not you choose to eat. Play all you can fee is at Php 100/head. Sulit na imo! Great way to bond with family and friends.

P.S. 💯th review!! 127881

This place is a lot of fun for playing games, whether with friends or with your kids. Their fries and paninis are decent but they don't offer much value for the price. If you're coming here to hangout I'd suggest eating somewhere else either before or after. Last time I was here with my husband weer went to this Swiss Deli just dish the road for dinner after some games and had a nice and affordable meal. Side note: Puzzles has imported beers, which is nice if you don't fancy San Miguel.

A very nice place to eat, chat and play.
Literally play!
Here at Puzzles: Board Game and Lounge you only need to pay 100php per head to play any game boards, cards and so forth and stay until they are open.
The food were tasty too!!! But they only have short list of menu but this place is best for group of friends and even lovers to spend time together.
The food like pasta and sandwiches ranges to 180-300 pesos.
While the drinks ranges to 80-150 pesos.
The also serve appetizers like calamares that ranges from 180-250 pesos.

Loved it here! 100 Php to play any of the games on the shelves for an unlimited amount of time. They have uno, monopoly, cards against humanity, jenga and many more. If you don't know how to play some of the games, you can ask the people there to recommend some and teach your group how to play it. The staff are nice and friendly so just ask away! I suggest you eat before going as the food and drinks are quite pricey and bringing food and drinks is not allowed. We got a plate of mojos for 180 Php (the loser payed so I happily ate some 128513) and a mug each of root beer float for 150 Php.

We went on a thursday afternoon/night and the place always had just one table vacant. Better go here on weekdays because the place is probably packed on weekends. My friend told me that they open at 3pm. I'm not sure if that's for the whole week or just on weekdays though.

So my friend and I wanted to check out new hangout place in BF an decided to go here. If you love board games and not just the usual monopoly you'll love it here. They charge 100php per head if your going to play. That 100 unlimited.

And oh, we don't know most of the games so we settled for jenga. Hahahaha

Interesting concept! :) cool place to hang out with your friends. Word of caution though, might decide to leave early because the food's not exactly cheap. Okay na ang chips at alak. Hahaha.

This is a great place to hang out with your family and friends. You could stay here the whole day and beat the intense boredom at home! Sulit yung 100 pesos fee for unlimited games for your whole stay :) And if ever you get hungry and thirsty, there's also a variety of food and drinks in the menu that also has affordable prices. I've tried the iced tea and fries and both were good! And besides you won't even feel that hungry when you and your companions start playing the games :))

The game coaches were really nice and approachable as well. On of the coaches who assisted us was very patient enough to teach us the mechanics of the games we played (i.e. Game of Life, Gloom, and Pandemic).

If you like games that make you use your imagination and strategic skills, I recommend you to play Pandemic! Super fun and thrilling!! :D

One of the things that I like about the concept of Puzzles is that it makes you take a break from the gadget world, and makes bonding with friends or family more fun and meaningful, instead of just hanging around together, sitting and tinkering with our phones and tablets.

(PS I'll take pictures of what we did next time!! 128513)

Went back here last last week since a friend invited us. This time, we enjoyed our stay here because (1) less reading and (2) we were able to play! Finally!!! 128588 we were able to appreciate the place and the games more. The place's not THAT crowded anymore so we were seated right away and it was not that noisy and magulo.

We really had a nice time. They added more games so more options. We didn't ordered any food since from experience, they're not really good and worth it.

This is perfect for barkadas or families looking for a nice and fun place to stay or for those who just want to try something new and fun. 128513

We accidently discovered this place while on our way to Meat Depot. Out of curiosity, we visit Puzzles amd was amazed on the numerous choices of board games they offer.

First, we chose what to eat. I was craving for Oreo Milkshake so that's my pick. It was pricey for 210php. If we just opt to stay and play games, and not eat, there's a 100php charge (I think each person). The milkshake was sweet and creamy just the way I want it.

Actually, we had a hard time of choosing which board game to play. We don't want to waste time on learning new games because it will take us time and it's dinner time. From Jengga to Monopoly Deal and to another version of Monopoly Deal. Until, a guy approached us and said he was one of the board game coach of the place. I was relieved to know that he existed! He suggested for us to play Cash and Guns. He guided us on the first try, and we enjoyed this new found game! We had 3 rounds before we decided to have dinner on the nearby restaurant.

It was a fun experience for family and friends! Even though the other table was so noisy shouting about the game they're playing, I didn't feel irritated. Well, it's a good thing! 128516

I went here last Sunday with my bffs.

If you order anything here, you get to play board games and stay there as long as you want but if you only want to play games, just pay P100 and play as long as you want.

So we only ordered Oreo milkshake coz we planned to eat at meat depot after.128522 I'm not so fond of oreo milkshake but my bffs liked it. I guess it was really good.

We had a hard time choosing what game we should play then someone approached us and suggested "Cash and Guns". See our picture! 128522 I won't explain the mechanics of the game but I recommend it if ever you visit The Puzzles 128077 Super thanks to Kuya who introduced us to that game.

We really enjoyed playing Cash and Guns. If we didn't get hungry, we wouldn't stop playing128514 Twassss awesome! Something fun and new to us.

We would definitely come back! 128522

Love how this place encourages human interaction in this digital age where people can't seem to put down their smartphones. Perfect place to spend a few good hours playing old school board games with friends or family. Kids of all ages would love it here!

The place is cozy and the staff are nice. There are even game coaches who explain/teach you how to play a certain board game. You get to play board games all you want for just P100/person. You can stay for snacks and drinks only, too. Try their Callebaut cold brew drink and crispy Mojos! 128077

Ever had the feeling where you just wanna play and play board games or just really miss playing board games? Well that's what I felt today 128514

Part 2 of our mini HS reunion took place here. Me and Ielle were the first one to come but when we went there around 5 minutes past 3, the owner told us to give them a few more minutes to fix their chairs since they opened the place a bit late. So that was fine for us. After that the owner gave us their chairs so we can sit outside while waiting. Good customer service right there. 128077128076

After a few minutes one of their staff told us that we can come in. So once we went inside, it was a warm vibe to me since interior designs were a hit to me. From beanbags to inspirational words framed on their wall and even shelves with each shelf has a basic color and of course the different kinds of board games you can choose from. The owner then came to us and ask if this was our first time to come to this place which we both said yes. After this, he then gave us the policies of their place such as that if we will play, each player will be charged Php100. At first you'll say that's too much but the twist is that you can get as many board games as you want. If you wanna eat there but not play, you won't need to pay for the gaming fee. So it's up to you if you wanna eat or just play. But for us, we did both. 128516 Fun fact that we learned from the owner is that out of the board games there, he knows 95% of the board games that are currently there so if you feel the need that you are curious of a certain board game there but you don't know how to play it, don't hesitate to ask the owner and he'll teach you what he knows haha 128514

Since we were waiting for our other HS batchmates, we decided to stay in the area where there are bean bags and grab first a board game that we are familiar of. We decided to get Jenga and even ordered snacks. I was curious of the Sea Salt Vanilla Caramel cupcake (Php85) so I ordered that. For me it was okay. Not dry but it didn't wow me.

After a few minutes, the place started to fill up. Mostly students came awhile ago so I guess this became now a hangout of students after school. Good thing we chose where the bean bag area are because most of the customers checked our area if its already be gotten. So if you guys wanna seat by the bean bag area where you are close to the board games, be early haha. 128516

Around an hour, our other batchmates came one by one and we decided to play Resistance which is the first time for me to play. Good thing we got used to the game just by observing and it was somehow easy on how to play the game. I suggest this game if you are into like the spy-ordinary people type of game. :)) One of us also ordered the fries which is a bit expensive but I say it was really good. I wish to have more of the dip though since there wasn't much of it. 128553

Definitely I'll come back to this place and perhaps will be one of my new hangout places here in the south. 128523

And the crossing out from my list continues!!! So yesterday, Anthony and I went to Puzzles to playy!!! 128107 We went here around 4pm (the store opens at 3pm) and there were a lot of people already. Most are big groups (barkadas and families, as well). We were lucky to get the last free table which was good for 2! 128131

The place was really nice, colorful, bright and chill just like a playroom 128077 but it's kinda small. I think that it would be better if they have a bigger space for games like twister or anything that involves movement or throwing something. But still, it's really "cool". 128521

For 100 pesos, you get to play any game for as long as you want. This can either be worth it or not 128513128527They also offer sandwiches, drinks and desserts. According to my friend, and some of the reviews I've read, the food were not that good and were overpriced. And yes, it is. Better skip the food and just play! 128521

This is Sulit/worth it/good for:
-people (especially for big groups like barkadas/families) (1) who are really into board/card games and (2) who wants to bond and spend time together. There are a lot of games to choose from!! A LOT! 128077 This is an exciting and fun way of spending your day out instead of the usual (mall, foodtrips etc.) 128513128076

This is NOT sulit/worth it/good for:
-people who are not really familiar with the different games they offer and/or not patient enough to read and understand the instructions. There were a lot of games to choose from. The sad part is, we're not very familiar with all the games. We wanted to try something new (aside from the usual uno, monopoly deal, jenga etc.) but ended up playing our usuals because if not, we would probably be spending more time in reading the instructions and setting up the game than actually playing. I'd rather play the games I want at home! 128540

Didn't like their sandwiches much but the fried Oreos were good with ice cream! And of course the board game selections over here are well worth the visit. :)

Finally a board game lounge in BF Paranaque. The place was so lively with so many groups playing. If you are a beginner they have a helpful gaming coach who will play and teach you. I love the wide range of board games. The downside the food was not that so great the only good thing in the menu that we've ordered was the vigan longanissa. But for the fun of boardgame this place is excellent. :)
