The Rook Board Game Parlor.

This evening we walked up Vine Street into Over-the-Rhine to check out the brand new board game parlor called The Rook

The Rook is Cincinnati’s first Board Game Parlor, and features nearly 1000 board games along with a full service bar and restaurant serving game night classics!

Growing up, we used to play Rack-O a lot…

I remember playing Hi-Ho Cherry-O…

And classics like Chutes and Ladders and Candy Land…

They had all sorts of drinks with nostalgic touchs like adding a candy necklace garnish, or a pop rock or pixie stick cover rim…

Genifer started with a Tequila Sunny D Rise…

We ordered everything from the “Straight from the Game Table” section of the menu. We tried the traditional classic rolls, bacon & sharp cheddar dogs and the cheesy buffalo chicken tots…

Everything was really good. But hands down the winner was the traditional classic rolls…

Then we got into some games. We started Chutes & Ladders and Candy Land…

And then we dove into some Sorry!

Genifer also tried the Capri Against Humanity drink…

How fun is that? We also played a few rounds of Exploding Kittens and multiple hands of Uno! It was a really fun trip down memory lane. And definitely one that we look forward to taking again very soon! Such a few evening! 🙂

Lytle Park. One of my favorite places in all of downtown Cincinnati. 🙂
