One of the newest businesses opening shortly in Mission Hill is the long-awaited Tavern of Tales. Many in the neighborhood have watched and anticipated the opening of this unique and fun venue.
Tavern of Tales is an interactive board game experience where customers can book one of six private rooms and play board games with an immersive sound experience. The trained staff will be able to explain all the rules to their library of board games, so newcomers don't need to be afraid. "We wanted to bring gameplay to life, starting from scratch to create intricate, vibrant sound experiences that allow players to immerse themselves in a completely new way,” Tavern of Tales founder Nicholas Chen said in a recent press release.
Nicholas, a graduate of Boston University, developed this unique concept in 2017 as part of his requirements for a sound design degree. His goal is to make board games fun and accessible for everyone while providing experienced players a new way to enjoy their favorite game.
From December 6-8, check out the grand opening weekend for a complimentary appetizer for everyone who reserves a game room online. Tavern of Tales, 1478 Tremont St., Boston, 617-708-0172, tavernoftales.com.
