Le Moque-Tortue is equipped with Atlantic Canada’s largest accessible treasury of tabletop games.
With over two thousand titles, you could spend hours browsing through the collection. But why would you do that when you can actually PLAY the games!
We have card games, dice games, wargames, tile-based games, solitaires, puzzles, Euros, two-player abstract games, contraption-based games, push-your-lucks, speed games, trivia, and party games - in other words, there are games for everyone!
HOW IT WORKS
Le Moque-Tortue is a bistro which transforms into a board game café. We're proud to offer a full bistro menu for lunch and supper, and a café & board game menu the rest of the day.
We welcome all players in parties of any size (as long as we have enough tables and chairs). Please bring only one game at a time to your table. Stay and play as long as you like for $5 per person!

HOW WE CATEGORIZE OUR GAMES
If they come in a deck and they're made out of paper, we treat them as card games. We have every kind under the sun - trick-taking games, gambling games, matching games, fishing, shedding or accumulating games, comparing games, and even a few collectible card games. House favourites include:
Statut Social, Summoner Wars, Timeline, Feed the Kitty, Fill 'er Up, Coup, Citadels, Mille Bornes, MAD, Quiddler, 6 qui prend!, Colossal Arena, Werewolves, and Zombie Fluxx.
Designer & Euro
Our collection includes games from many of the most notable game designers in the world, including Vlaada Chvátil, Leo Colovini, Stefan Feld, Reiner Knizia, Wolfgang Kramer, Alan R. Moon, Klaus Teuber, and Klaus-Jürgen Wrede.
These 2-player games don't rely on a theme. There's a close kinship between abstract strategy games and logic puzzles, since every board position presents the player with the puzzle, "What is the best move?" The play therefore consists of each player posing a puzzle to the other. Good players are the ones who find the most difficult puzzles to present to their opponents.
We of course have the classics, like Chess, Checkers, Nine Men's Morris, Go, Xiangqi, Shogi, Reversi, and Mancala. But we also have a long list of other games: Abalone, Backgammon, Cathedral, Pente, Quorridor, Black Box, Blokus Duo, Dragons, Duell, etc.
TV & Movies
Some board games offer great ways to connect with your family. Some are also a great learning tool for children. They're also a great distraction while you have a bite to eat! Our collection has tons of old favorites and probably a good number of titles you've never heard of before. Games like Beat The Parents,
dozens of versions of Monopoly & Monopoly Junior, many versions of HedBanz, Apples to Apples, Sequence, Jokes de Papa, and Life.
