3. Game Shop | The Uncommons
Another game shop, The Uncommons is Manhattan’s first boardgame store and cafe that welcomes guests of all ages. If you’re looking for a place to burn a couple of hours, pay a visit to this quirky outpost, where you can find an expansive inventory of board and card games — one of the largest in the East Coast — that spans across multiple genres.
In addition to being a game center, The Uncommons is very much a social space, where events likes tournaments and meet-ups are regularly held. You are also free to “walk-in” and play on a regular game night. Address: 230 Thompson St.
