Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Comfy place with great selection of beers and games. Service can be a bit hit or miss. Sometimes its great sometimes its not. Not the place to get drunk for loud :)

Rude staff that answered sarcastically when asked normal questions. We were a group of 6 people, and none of us felt we were treated as one should excpect from a waiter. Left after 10 minutes.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bar like this, and I mean that in the BEST of ways, from being able to play an assortment of games, pinball, etc., you truly had it all. Along with kind and easily approachable staff, that made excellent...drinks. I truly enjoyed the spin on Long Island with the monkey island iced tea. It was a great place to meet up with friends I hadn’t seen in over five years and actually be able to talk and hear what they have to say! Such a refreshing environment to the ‘typical’ club and I wish more places were like this.More

Their bar is relaxed with both tables suitable for board gaming and large groups, and cosy armchairs and sofas for couples. The drinks selection is vast. They have around 10 beers on tap, and many more bottles. They do food but it's not much more...than small snacks (toasties, crisps, muffins and cookies) The milkshakes are a lot more filling and pretty good value. The best flavours are liquorice and oreo. There are so many board games, you will find many you have never heard of.More

The service here sucks big time. The waiters does not have any respect for the customers. I like the setup and the games of the cafe but i have met very disrespectful waiters.

This is a nice bar with a lot of young people and a cool ambiance. It is possible to just have a drink but also to play games, console, flipper, etc. This is also a place where you can work and it has collaborations with...startups and tech companies in Trondheim. A nice place to connect with other people.More

Stopped by this place for some drinks in the evening. Nice atmosphere with game-influenced design and decoration. Lots of board games, consoles, shuffleboard etc. So much to do if you're want to hang out with friends or so. Had a Gin fizz drink which was...good! A Big variety of beers too!More

Old game consoles and pinball machines you can play with tokens. One tokens costs 20kr and you get 7 with 100kr. You can also buy different kind of ciders which is not common to many places in Norway. Love the atmosphere! Good service! :)

If you wanna feel really, really old (or, you`re a hipster, with a flimsy "beard" and a cap, that think you`re cool because you heard somebody you grew up with`s older brother actually played Zelda, at his uncle`s place), this is the place to go!...I went here because I heard they have games. I was hoping for some old arcade games (because I am old, and those were the "computer games" we played when I grew up). I was rather disappointed. If I was into pinball machines, I would probably have loved it. But I`m not. So I didn`t. I could probably have stayed and played some old Nintendo, boardgames or whatever they have upstairs, but seriously. I`d rather do that at home. In my sofa. With my own selection of beer that doesn`t cost 100 NOK per pint. And first and foremost: with absolutely NONE hipster "nerd" punks telling me what kind of beard grease they use. Bai, hipsters.More

Perfect place for playing board games or trying out shuffleboard. It is quite expensive but it a unique place to hang out with a kind of geeky but cool feeling.

Work-work is a laid-back place during the day, where you can bring your own games or borrow some of their games. There are board games, shuffle board, pin-ball, and console games. It is a great place to spend a few hours with your friends. They...have a selection of drinks, including beer, ginger ale, tea and coffee.More
