Ditch the Lag & Play in Person

Take a walk down nostalgia lane or discover something new when you enter The Yard at Corktown. From every corner of our expansive space, you’ll find games to play and excitement to be had. If you’re not prepared to lose every friend you have over a board game, you’re not playing hard enough. Our board game wall offers hundreds of games, from Scrabble and Monopoly to Uno and Parcheesi. Play one of your childhood favorites at the bar or get competitive with a group at one of our first come, first serve games tables.

Take Things Up a Notch

If board games aren’t your thing, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered inside and outside. Head to our expansive outdoor deck to participate in a game of cornhole on our artificial turf arena. Wait your turn sitting comfortably on one of our couches, benches, or patio tables, or try your hand at the hook-and-ring games. When the sun goes down and things get chilly, our two giant outdoor firepits will keep the gameplay in action all night long.

Inside you’ll find everything your inner child could imagine. The Yard offers pinball machines for video game enthusiasts, shuffleboard tables for those with hand-eye coordination, and a life-size Lite-Brite for the artist of the group. We don’t take gaming lightly and have designed our space to reflect our love of group activities and newfound fun.

All of our tables are on a first-come-first-serve basis. No reservations are required, regardless of your party size. We do recommend arriving early in order to snag a seat and enjoy our exciting activities.

No! At The Yard, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy gameplay for as long as their competitive hearts desire. For this reason, we do not put a time limit on how many rounds of cornhole, shuffleboard, or pinball you can play. Board games are available for immediate use, and you get to decide when you’re done passing go without collecting $200.
