The Malted Meeple specializes in milkshakes, craft beers, and most importantly: board gaming. As Northeast Ohio’s first board game café, we pride ourselves on our carefully curated library of over 400 hobby board games. From the classics you know and love to some that you’ve probably never heard of – The Malted Meeple ensures that you will have hours of fun with your loved ones almost every day of the week. We have dice games, card games, cooperative games, strategy games, and many more. For a full list of the games we have, check out our library!

The benefits of board gaming are endless. While we at the Meeple believe it is one of the best ways to unplug and reconnect with your friends and family, it can also have lasting impacts on kids and adults alike. Board games are entertaining and let us decompress from the stress of our everyday lives – they provide us with a way to escape for a few hours and go on adventures, save cities, or solve crimes. Alongside this, board games foster skills such as goal setting, strategy development, and creativity.

Another pro to playing board games is that they can be played anywhere. Disconnecting from the digital world and returning to a table to play with friends and family can foster stronger relationships. You won’t even have to worry if the Wi-Fi is strong enough or the signal fast enough, just grab a game and enjoy worry free!

The Malted Meeple hopes that you and your families are staying safe during this trying time and finding ways to enjoy your time together. Grab a board game and get to playing!
