d20 Tavern in Denton. Such a great idea. Tons of games and 20 beers on tap, so you can roll a d20 to randomly select a beer. We played the NYC Ticket to Ride. (My daughter also wrote an article about the place for the Denton Record-Chronicle!)

@manton Looks chill! I looked up the game, but it wasn’t the one I was thinking of at first. I once played one with the map of NYC, but the mission was for one player to keep moving using subways, cabs and ferries (if I remember correctly), and for the other players to try to chase that player. I can’t remember m the name of the game, but it was kind of exciting.

@manton sounds like a very interesting place based on the article. Also, tell your daughter great article as now I want to visit this place 😁

@odd Ah, I once played a very similar one, in which one player was a master criminal, and the others were coppers trying to chase them through the streets of London. I can't remember the name but the main mechanic was that the criminal kept their movements secret and only revealed them to other players on certain turns.

@lmika Yes! That’s exactly what it was, but the one that I played was set in NYC.

@odd Found the one I played. It's called Scotland Yard. Maybe the one you played was called something similar? Maybe "One Police Plaza"? (thank you Law and Order for knowing that factoid).

@lmika “NY Chase” I think it was! (It was referenced in the Wikipedia article). Oh, maybe tonight is going to be a game night. ♟

@manton We have a place like that near us — Gamers Geekery & Tavern. You and Alex have reminded me that I need to check it out.
