Enjoy an outing with a difference! With only a few board game cafes in the UK, Dice & a Slice brings something different to Colchester. Eat and drink to your heart's content, make friends, have fun and play some of the world's top rated games.

Dice & a Slice is a brand new board game cafe located in the centre of Colchester. With a focus on fantastic quality food and drinks, a massive variety of excellent board-games, and great service, we cater for everyone.

Not in the mood for playing a game? Come in and have some excellent food & drink - you don't pay to play unless you actually play one of the games (and the cakes alone are definitely worth popping in for!)

You can learn more about us here, but we're always happy to have a chat with you in the cafe. We have worked to create a real sense of community within the cafe, so we would love to get to know you too.

And OF COURSE we recommend you check out the list of games available at our cafe - it's quite an impressive selection (even if we do say so ourselves!)

Even if you can't actually visit our cafe, we have a number of board games for sale at highly competitive rates, and although we are based in Essex, we ship UK wide.
Visit our board game shop.

We look forward to seeing you!
