Asheville's first official board game cafe is up and running, and it's already dishing out some healthy competition.

Well Played is located on Wall Street and offers over 400 different board games and expansion packs.

Some games are free to play, but most require a $5 fee for unlimited gameplay. They also serve snacks and drinks, including alcohol.

They have all sorts of games, from advanced strategy games to the classics like Monopoly, chess, backgammon and Battleship.

“I think the beauty of board game cafes are they’re such a beautiful community gathering space. It has the games, the food, the beer," Cortland Mercer, the co-owner, said. "It really gives you the opportunity to look across the table and connect with your friends and family, something you may not have the chance to do in your everyday life.”

On April 29, Well Played will celebrate International Tabletop Day. They'll host tournaments and have food and beverage discounts all day long.
