6 Top English Friendly Stores for Travelers in Tainan - 台南英語友善店家
Lazyday Table Dining Restaurant (懶日子桌遊餐廳)

Although Taiwan or Asia in general is filled with geeks and geek culture, Board game geeks are relatively less common in Taiwan. We seem to care more about online games and promo girls (please correct me in the comments if I’m wrong). That’s why many geeks spend most their time watching promo girls play computer games online- A combination of the both!
I have loner geek inside me who constantly looks for places to kill time and escape reality. I never knew board game cafes were available in Taiwan until I learned about Lazyday Table Dining Restaurant. LazyDay has two shelves filled with board games to choose from.

A stereotypical geek in Taiwan stays home and watch comic books/animation or plays computer games all day. I don’t think they have the time or need to learn another language.Curious to see if English speaking geeks existed in Taiwan, I walked in Lazytable and requested for a table in English. I didn’t get the employee (who attended to me)’s name. Self-introduction is not common in Taiwan. My physiotherapist still hasn’t told me his name after nine months. Since I don’t know his name, I will refer to him as “Mr. X.” Mr. X passed my test and introduced me to the back shelf of board games to choose from. I spotted “Twister” and pointed at it just to give him a hard time. There is no way the space can fit a Twister matt on the floor.

He stuttered, and I revealed that I was joking after enjoying the look of his “Oh-snap–face.”We were a party of three, so Mr. X picked a game suitable for groups of 3and above for us. Friendly enough, he volunteered to join us as nobody in our group was familiar with the games (I guess I’m not qualified for a geek, anyway). Initially, I gave his English level a 7 out of 10, but after he successfully scored three words in the game Alias with me in a very short time, and taught my post-stroke cognition how to play Geschenk’s, I’ll give him an over-the-top 20-out-of-10 for his patience.

The Menu:
The menu consists of casual Italian fare like pizzas, risotto and deep fried finger food/snacks that go well with a lazy board-gaming day. On top of the orders, the restaurant charges on a timing basis. On weekdays they charge $40NT/person per hour and on weekends/holidays  $50NT. The price is clearly written on the menu with English translation.It is pretty straightforward and easy to understand, even for a first-time traveler/foreigner. Minimum order is 1 drink and 1 hour.

台南人的慷慨和古道熱腸都表現在他們「食」的文化上。這裡我不談棺材板、鼎邊銼、鱔魚麵或度小月……等那些聞名遐邇的小吃,我走了一趟「懶日子桌遊餐廳」。
一間充滿台南人綿密人際關係氣氛的餐廳,你可以在裡面和好友一起輕鬆的度過周末,完全將現代人緊張的工作壓力拋諸腦後,無須吃力地盯著傷眼的電腦或手機螢幕,而是回到璞真的世界。
接待我的是一位能呼應這間充滿古味餐廳的年輕男士,台灣人似乎不習慣自我介紹,自然我也不知道他的名字,他耐心的教我玩一些桌上遊戲,我暫時脫離了外面的世界,得到心情完全放鬆的愉悅。
這家餐廳有兩層樓,有開放的空間,也有隱密的角落,木頭的桌椅讓你彷如坐在阿嬤家的餐桌上,輕鬆地和朋友或家人在此享用餐點,同時完桌上遊戲。緊張的虛擬世界裡你絕對無法享受到這樣踏實的天地。
