I remembered visiting Playnation with 3 friends last year whilst we were wondering what to do with the few hours before our movie. My first impression of it was just a quaint little store tucked in between larger cafes and grocery stalls. I won't even have walked past it if I wasn't on my way back from visiting the video game shop down one of the aisles of shophouses which boasts of a wonderful stock of games.

Looking innocent and belittled, the only thing about the store that catches one's eyes would be the colourful display board at its doors boasting of the wonderful rates for board games and video games available. Of course, the vibrant, cheeky cartoon monkey that is its logo is a bonus as well.

We decided on board games and it was a choice we never regretted. Aside from common board games such as Scrabble and Monopoly, the outlet offers unique board games such as Boom Town, The Settlers, Saboteur. The lists simply go. Once we learnt the basic rules of the games, my friends made the devastating decision to team up against me. It was loads of fun as we 'sabo-ed' each other repeatedly to the extent that we were unwilling to leave the cafe for dinner and even extended our package from 1 hour to 3 hours.

One thing I like about Playnation was that they have an in-house kitchen so we can just order food as we play. Moreover, the staff are friendly and often offered to show us techniques to play the games. It was awesome when I learnt a few secrets and destroyed the alliance!

So it went on such that the hours passed by, before we knew it, it was 11pm already and all plans for a movie were declared shelved. Definitely a place I enjoyed tremendously and somewhere I would want to visit again!

At Play Nation, fun comes at a cheap price at only $6 for 4 hours of board games and free flow drinks (weekdays happy hours 2pm-6pm). It has became a constant hang out place for my friends and I during the school holidays after discovering our love for board games.

I won't elaborate on the free flow drinks. Just imagine syrup... with loads of water. However, I do want to introduce a few fantastic games everyone should try out!

1) Bang! - Get ready for some mind games with this western-themed card game, suitable for 4-8 players but best with 5!
2) Saboteur - You'll have a blast trying to figure out who's on your team!
3) Headbanz - Okay, a little immature and pointless, but it'll have you laughing your head off that's for sure!

Don't worry if you do not know how to play the games, simply ask their friendly staff and they'll explain to you the rules clearly.

The seats might be a little tattered, and the lighting a tad too low, but hey, we paid merely $6 after all so it's still worth it!

As my usual group of friends form a large group, we usually find it hard to find places to sit down and have fun (that isn't playing pool/ watching movies/eating). Play Nation provided the perfect place for us to do that!

Because of the size of the group, we've always opted to sit at the tables and play card or board games instead of electronic games, and so far we've tried and even bought some card games that we were addicted to. The staff are really knowledgeable about the games, like they seem to have memorized all the rules..it's kinda freaky. But they're really nice and will gladly explain and even demonstrate how the game is played. I find this a huge plus because no one wants to waste their time plowing through the instruction manual! We wanna get down and dirtyyy

All in all, Play Nation is a fantastic place to just chill out and have fun!

It is a great place to chill, have fun or go crazy with your close friends as there are many types of games to keep you guys entertained. You can go for the rooms if you want privacy and if it is available. Playnation is more for groups of friends rather than couples(or duos) as most of the games are more enjoyable with multiplayers.

Go on weekdays or non peak hours to avoid the crowd. Or else you will have to be placed on the waiting list. The honey mango drink is really addictive and the best thing is - it is free flow off peak hours as a package.

If you cannot connect anything, just call for the friendly staff and they will get it done quicker. Don't waste precious minutes trying to figure the thing out! Try as many games as you can and have lots of fun!

The place really earn its name and rapport of Play Nation. The reason I say are simply the reasons which makes this place totally irresistible. I went to the Scape outlet firstly out of curiosity to check out exactly what board games they have. The glass stickers outside their store drew me to it firstly because I instantly recognized the character of UGLY UGLY, a card game where you match the same monsters together to score points. Upon further investigation I also realized that they also have consoles like XBox and Wii which you could play for a very reasonable price.

I went away firstly because it was late at night and the place was quite packed. I came back on my next available off day in the afternoon with company and dominated a good 4 hours of awesome gaming experience. There is even Kirby for the die-hard kid inside of you and even "tween" dancing games. I find that what they lack is exactly what I was looking for; inattentive staff. I do not like the idea of having staff standing around waiting on me hand and foot and this place certainly feels like home.
