Games & Grounds Coffee House | Courtenay BC |


Party Gaming Options

As of November 2015, we moved into our new location (331 - 4th Street, downtown Courtenay) so we now have more room and more things to do for a party.  We can build a party to suit your group, depending on the amount of participants, their ages, and what kinds of gaming you want them to access.  Please view the chart below for description and details of options.  Pictures of each are below the chart.

As mentioned on Party Info Page, parties for 6 year olds will only be 1 hour in length, and parties for 7 year olds can be 1 to 1-1/2hrs.  Unless you choose 'table top gaming' as your option, these parties will be held only in the Console Room.    If you're having a family party with multiple ages (including multiple adults for supervision) then these constraints are not applicable.

Table Top Gaming (Tables)

We can Gaming Tables in General Gaming Area set aside a table/tables for a party, in the general gaming area.  Party participants may choose the games from our Game Shelves, obviously age appropriate. Game Shelves
This play option is great, but please note that our staff cannot instruct participants on games, so it may require a parent/guardian to assist with rules for games that are not familiar to the children/youth.  We also ask that parents/guardians make sure that games are put back into their boxes properly, and returned to the game shelf prior to choosing another game.  You are also welcome to bring your own games in to play, please advise staff if you are doing this!

This area also has space to play RPG's, or tables for miniature gaming.  It really depends on what your group is interested in playing - but we definitely have the space to provide a variety of gaming experiences for you!  Please note that we do not have any equipment for these types of games... so your group would have to bring in what is required.  We do have table tops and scenery that can be used, however.

 Also available is the 'quiet area' - where there is enough space for 2 tables.  A great option for keeping children 'contained' in one area... or also a great spot for those doing an RPG that requires a more private location. 






 In addition to the Gaming Area, we also have a

Coffee Area

Coffee Room (note Game shelves!)


This area is to the left when you enter the business.  The Coffee Area provides tables for patrons to enjoy our tasty food and drink.

For those adults who are staying while their children attend a party, you are welcome to sit in this area and enjoy our fare.  Note that the parent of the 'birthday' child is responsible for overseeing the party participants.  For older groups the parent can certainly enjoy some free time in this area, as well.

This area also has a child's play area (pictured below) - making it very family friendly!  Parents must supervise their children at all times to ensure their safety, and the comfort and safety of all our other customers, too.

Children's Play Area (in the Coffee Area)  

In the nicer weather we will have tables outside, which will provide a fresh-air option for customers... which will be nice for those with pets out for a walk. 


Fundraiser?  Our business is a fun place to hold one.
