In today's society where everyone is glued to their phones for interaction and entertainment, it's no wonder board game cafes have become popular spots in the metro. These entertainment cafes make it refreshing to see people detach from their phones and actually interact, enjoy, as well as build (and betray) friendships through the classic board games.

Board game cafes are a pretty nostalgic sight. Add in video and arcade games in the mix, and it's basically a kid's playroom—for adults. And that's what Play Nation is here for.

Play Nation, the leading gaming cafe brand in Singapore, opens up its first (and largest!) branch in the Philippines. Play Nation perfectly mixes food, fun, and friendships in a hub that not only is entertaining, but is also 'gram-worthy, too. Check it out:

The perfect gaming atmosphere

Play Nation occupies 5,800 sq meters, which means larger space for bigger gaming joys! The cafe has different divisions: one for the video games, the other for board games, and VIP rooms. Play Nation Philippines’ is designed with summer-themed walls, bright colors, and vibrant lighting that makes you want to feel like a kid again.

Video games!

What’s a play hub without your favorite gaming consoles? Xbox One, Kinect, and Nintendo Switch are all waiting for you in the comfort of console sofa stations. There are a total of 27 console seatings and each is equipped with the three mentioned gaming consoles.
