We wanted to create a space where everyone feels welcome. It doesn’t matter whether you have been playing board games for years or whether you have never played anything! Modern board games are so much fun and so interactive that in todays technology driven world there is nothing better than socialising over a board game. We chose to open The Dice Box in Leamington Spa as it’s such a thriving town full of many other fantastic independent businesses. People in Leamington really do support local business! Our customers are absolutely wonderful and its great to see people just having fun.
