12 games of D&D throughout the day, all one-shots with pre-generated characters. Big raffle. All in aid of Over And Above. Booking for the games is essential. Raffle tickets on sale now at the cafe.

It's a wet day today. Why not book a table or even just pop in and pick up a raffle ticket for our Gygax Day draw. This dice tower is just one of many prizes.

We are in the process of changing our phone to a new supplier. So we are unable to take calls for a few days, until the PAC code thing is complete. We can still be reached via Facebook messenger and email.

Dice and slice staff are great with our special school. They open up during the school day for us. The staff play with the student which makes the games so much better and the students love playing with them. This makes them engage better and understand the games. The staff are so helpful. Highly recommended

Highly recommended these guys! After a few nights of bad weather, we were cursing ourselves for forgetting some rainy entertainment. We were thrilled to learn that no only do Slice and a Dice having an AMAZING selection of games available to buy, but they deliver to local areas! We called the staff for a recommendation for the kind of game we were after, and had it in our hands 30 mins later. Fantastic service Thanks! Thanks so much guys, we love our new game! Hannah & Jon

Fabulous day spent gaming! When the weather got rough on our camping trip we were delighted to find this little jewel! For such a little cafe, there's a fantastic range of games and the staff are very educated and delightfully friendly. Our 8yo had a blast playing loads of games with the owners whilst we tackled some bigger legacy games . Our daughter LOVED the hot chocolate with all the works and their little tubs of mixed snacks are genius! We were so delighted they allowed dogs also. Even if gaming isn't your thing, worth a visit just for the cakes anyway!!

About us

We are a very small board games cafe located in sun drenched Ilfracombe's High Street. Easily found, we are half a dragons length from the petrol station (dear Mr weights and measures person, please don’t actually check that, as the petrol station may not survive a close encounter with a dragon), with a very eye catching shop sign.
What is a Board Games Cafe?
A Board Games Cafe is, of course, a cafe, we do some very nice lose leaf teas, great coffee, pizzas, jacket potatoes, paninis, nacho's etc. And of course, CAKE.
All this is basically "so far, so normal", but we also play games, lots of games. For a small fee, you can access our library of over 500 games. Need help playing them, not a problem, time permitting we will sit with you and help you learn, or if we don’t know ourselves we will learn with you. If we don’t have a game that you want to play, bring in your own copy and just use our space to play it at no charge, don’t be surprised if one of us wants to play too, its a great way to find games that we should add to the library.
We also sell lots of new games and puzzles and the occasional second hand rarity.
We do regret that unaccompanied under 16's are not allowed in.
Our hours often are not the ones published here, we open on time and close when everybody leaves. If nobody is in at 2000 we go home, if people are playing at 2330 we stay open.
