KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE
+ what do you offer?
Pieces has a Board Game Library of over 800+ games, tasty cuisine, and a full bar with alcoholic and non-alcoholic selections.
Our "Game Navigators" are familiar with a vast majority of the Library and are always available to suggest a game, explain rules, help with set-up, and assist you throughout your game. Game Navigators also provide you with full table service for your food and drink needs.
+ Do you cater to vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, and other dietary concerns?
ABSOLUTELY! Our cuisine is designed to cater to ALL palettes. Because our guests come to Pieces for the board games, it is one of our main priorities to offer a menu that pleases a diverse crowd. The vast majority of our food is made in-house from scratch and can be tweeked to accommodate most every dietary need. When ordering, alert your Game Navigator to dietary preferences and our chefs will honor your requests.
+ Can I bring outside food & drink?
Great question! We do not allow outside food at Pieces simply because we are very cautious about topical allergens getting on the games and affecting guests who have severe peanut, shellfish, and other allergies. For example, we make sure none of the food we make at Pieces is processed in the same facility as peanuts or shellfish. Although we sanitize our games regularly, we like to be very safe! If you'd like to order a custom cake, we do have an in-house bakery. Our custom cake options with pricing are available at: www.stlpieces.com/bakery/
We also do not permit outside drinks simply because we allow guests under the age of 21 to enter and game. As a result, we need to provide and serve all beverages to ensure there are no instances of underage drinking.
+ What is a library fee?
There is a $5.00 Library Fee per person to access our 800+ game library. To make it affordable, we do reduce the Library Fee by $1.00 for every item you purchase. For example, you have 3 beers and 1 food item, your individual Library Fee will be reduced to $1.00.
We spend 100% of these fees on library maintenance. The fee is used to refurbish games as boards and cards are subjected to inevitable party fouls, replace lost pieces, obtain card protectors for our most popular games, and to purchase new games every month.
The Library Fee grants you access to play as many games as you want and you're also welcome to stay as long as you want.
Library Fees for children under 12 years of age are WAIVED.
+ Do you have to be 21 to enter?
Not at all! We only ID guests who wish to order an alcoholic beverage. We encourage families and friends of all ages to visit us. High chairs and a kids game library are available.
A Helpful Tip for Parents Visiting us on Weekend Evenings: We tend to go on a wait for tables on Fridays and Saturdays around 7pm. Thus, we encourage families with young games to arrive earlier. We know young ones can get a little antsy when waiting for a table or food! It is extremely rare for us to go on a wait for tables on weekday evenings or weekend mornings/afternoons.
+ what if my friends are busy?
Fear not lone wolf, we’ve got a variety of single-player games and would love to teach you how to play them! Or feel free to come in and sit at our bar and hang out. Our bartenders are always looking for someone to play a light game with!
+ do you have a happy hour?
Yes! Every Tuesday through Friday 4pm to 6pm. Includes $1.00 off beer, cocktails, wine, and appetizers.
If you want to plan a corporate happy hour at Pieces, we do offer extended happy hour prices. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

+ How do I reserve the private room?
Please fill out the contact form available under "Private Room" on this website.
For groups that would like to use the space on a regular basis (i.e., every Thursday night or every other Thursday night), or for parties and events, please contact us and we will work with you to make your dreams come true!
+ can I bring in my own game?
We do not permit outside games as it would be extremely difficult for staff to keep track of Pieces-owned games and customer-owned games. We provide one exception: our Private Rooms! This is to allow regular gaming groups the opportunity to bring in their own game(s) without the expense of a Library Fee. If, however, you would like to use the Pieces Library while reserving the Private Room, a Library Fee will be applied to each player.
+ can I schedule my private event at pieces?
You sure can! We welcome groups to utilize our space for charity events, work team building sessions, and parties! Please contact us at info@STLpieces.com for details and scheduling! We plan custom events for every group!
+ why am I here on this planet?
I really can only think of three reasons: (1) watch YouTube videos of cats knocking things off counters; (2) laughing until your stomach hurts; and (3) and enjoying time spent with the ones we love. If you can think of other reasons, then you’ve pretty much made it life.
