GameOver Gaming & Cafe in Dhoby Ghaut

Some days you want to play old-school arcade games, other days you want to compete with your gang over multiplayer games. Then there are times when only a good board game will satisfy that itch. At GameOver Gaming & Cafe, you get the best of all 3 worlds.

Yep, they’ve got arcade games like the original Street Fighter, console games for PS5 and Nintendo Switch, as well as board games. It’s located in The Rise @ Oxley condo, and prices are as low as $8/hour on weekdays and $9/hour on weekends. Instead of the noisy beeps and zaps of a typical arcade, the gaming cafe is a lot quieter and cosier too.
