Play at our place!

For just $5 a person you get three hours to play our library of 500+ tabletop games. You can sit and play while enjoying something from our menu along with barista-made coffee or something stronger from the bar. 

BrainHackr is a casual game space, you don’t need to be an avid gamer or even have any idea about board games to come in and have some fun. Our team will help you find games suited to you and even get you set up and started with quick tutorials. We also run regular events where you can join other groups of gamers for ‘how to play’ sessions.

While we love to see younger gamers getting into board games we do require all minors to be accompanied by a parent/guardian during our usual hours, check out our ‘Family Friendly’ days for exceptions.

Small groups

Small groups of 1 – 6 players

Large groups

Got questions?

Want to book a session?

You can quickly and easily book a Stay’n’Play session using our online booking system. You don’t even need to pay ahead when booking for less than 6 people. Persons under 18 must always be accompanied by a paying parent/guardian.

If you need to book a table for groups of more than 6 please visit the group bookings page. If you book multiple tables as separate bookings through this page we cannot guarantee your tables will be next to each other.

No minors (under 18) permitted on Friday nights from 8pm

Can I bring my furbabies

Awwwwwwww no. Soz. The BrainHackr team have our own furry friends that we would love to bring in to work, but to keep our 5 star health rating we can’t allow animals to be brought on site. Except of course for service animals, we will always make arrangements to accommodate guide, hearing and assistance dogs.

What happens if I damage a game

Uh ohs! Please take care of the games. Any group found to cause negligent damage to our games will be required to purchase the game at the current retail price.

What payment methods do you accept

Pretty much all of them (except Amex and Diners – bank no likey).

Do you have disability access

Unfortunately as we are located in an older building we do not have street level access, customers will be required to ascend one step to enter the store (approximately 20cm in height), use of our single unisex bathroom facility will require use of a short 12 step staircase. We know this isn’t ideal for persons who may not be able to access the store, please click here to read our full disability statement which may provide other options available to you.

What happens if I can’t make it

You may cancel your Stay N' Play table booking up to 4 hours before your scheduled session, or up to 24 hours for group bookings using the link emailed in your original confirmation. Refunds are not provided for bookings with less than the required notice.

Refunds for escape room bookings are not provided. Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss potential rescheduling.

Can I pay when I get there

To secure bookings ahead of time payment is required online at the time of booking. Payment can only be made in store for walk in bookings. We recommend booking ahead on Friday and Saturday nights.

Can I change my booking

The best way to change a booking is to either use the link in the email to cancel and make a new booking, or just give us a call and we can edit the booking for you.

Where can I park

There is plenty of free parking around us. We are located on Prospect Road right at the traffic lights. We recommend parking on the quieter streets of Alexandra or Gordon. Please be mindful and respectful of our neighbours when coming and going.

Which bus should I get

From the city (Victoria Square) you can catch the G10 heading to Prospect, get off the bus at Stop 14 on Propect Road.

I want to bring a group in but don’t have enough players

Our group booking packages allow 'up to' a set number of players. For example if you have 15 players then you should select the GroupBooking 16 option. You'll be paying for one extra player, but you're already saving the cost of 2x individual stay n' play tickets by booking as a group

Need a gaming group?

If you’re looking for some fellow gamers then check out the Tabletoppers of Adelaide Facebook group! There’s heaps of gamers of all skill levels in the group. Just put a shout out asking for gamers and the kinds of games you like to play and let the group do the rest!

We also regularly run learn-to-play and social nights where you can join a group to play bigger games. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see when these events are scheduled.
