Hey you - hardcore gamer, occasional dabbler, or curious character - welcome! Our goal at Sapphire City Board Game Parlor is to build a fun little space that offers each of you a unique experience to enjoy. 


For the Curious Character

Have you heard about the growing popularity of board games recently? Have a friend that keeps talking about the hobby, or came across some folks laughing and tossing cards across the table at a local coffee shop? Stepped into the game aisle at your local store and was shocked at the unexpected amount of options?

The Settlers of Catan  premiered in Germany in 1995, and quickly grew in popularity due to its blend of strategic depth with relatively simple rules.

Board games have blown up in popularity over the last two decades, with more modern options like Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Pandemic joining the classics like Monopoly and Clue on shelves across the country. We would absolutely love to introduce you to them! We've an extended library of games, with both the classics you know and love and these newer options for you to give a shot if you're interested. If you need a little guidance, both with what to play and how to play it, we're more than happy to help. Feel free to stop by, have a seat, grab a bite, and have fun!


For the Occasional Dabbler

Do you enjoy the occasional game of King of Tokyo or Carcassonne already? Don't have tons of games on your home bookshelf, but don't turn down the opportunity to roll some dice and move some meeples from time to time?

We've got you covered. Whether you're looking to replay a game that really struck your fancy, or hoping to expand your experiences and try something new, we have hundreds of board games to choose from. Our library is organized for precisely whatever the occasion calls for, whether that's a quick, fun bluffing game to accommodate a crowd or a bit of strategy to sink your teeth into. Sit back, order some food, and get ready to have a blast.

Already well-versed in the hobby?  Enjoy watching the latest Dice Tower or SUSD content? Follow the newest releases, spend more than you'd care to admit on Kickstarter, or live for those ten-hour sessions of Twilight Imperium

We try to follow the latest hotness, and make sure we've got our shelves updated accordingly. Everything from Gloomhaven (with removable vinyl sticker set), to a variety of CMON miniatures games like Rising Sun and Blood Rage, to the seasoned greats such as Agricola or Power Grid. We think you'll find something you like to sate that gaming hunger, and something delicious for that real hunger too.


At the Parlor we aim to be a fun, casual game night alternative to both the kitchen table at home and the foldout table at your FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store).  Feel free to stop in. We think you'll find something on the shelf you like and something on a plate to enjoy.
