FAQ: A Starter Guide

Welcome to The Cloak & Blaster, a board game pub for all fans of geek culture! This quick-start guide contains information that every new player needs before starting their quest.

What is your age policy?

Ages 18+ only after 8 p.m. We do not police adult language from our other guests. We also do not have a kids menu, high chairs, or a changing table. This is an adult establishment; however, we have families who frequent for family board game time. We recommend families visit during our earlier hours on Saturday and Sunday. All children must be supervised by a guardian at all times – no exceptions.

Where are you located?

You can find us just east of the Waterford Lakes Shopping Center in Orlando (east side of the city, near the University of Central Florida and 408 E / Colonial 50 exit.) Our address is 875 Woodbury Road, Suite 108, Orlando, Florida 32828, and we are located just south of the 408 overpass on Woodbury Road. (We are on the stretch in between Lake Underhill and Waterford Lakes Parkway!)

Can I just hang out without buying anything?

Playing board games takes time, but if you aren’t supporting the pub, we reserve the right to ask you to wrap up so we can make space for waiting customers. This applies at all times, including themed event and trivia nights. Alternatively, you may procure space for $5 per person provided you are a part of the night’s festivities.

Please note: Our serving staff works for tips, so please tip appropriately when you visit. If you do not have enough money to pay your bill and tip your server or bartender, then we ask you to please join us again at a later date. Repeat offenders could be subject to automatic gratuity.

Is smoking permitted?

No smoking of any kind is allowed. This includes pipes, e-cigs, and vaping.

Can I bring in outside food and beverages?

Outside food and beverages are not permitted. (Only birthday cakes are allowed with a receipt from a licensed bakery. However, we are not responsible for providing plates and/or cutting the cake. Please plan ahead or you may incur an additional cake cutting fee per guest.)

Does it cost money to play games?

Our game library includes more than 400 board games, and it is always growing! To ensure that our selection is always being updated and sanitized appropriately, we charge a $1.00/person usage fee for any guests playing games from our tabletop game library. This nominal fee is charged for each guest, once per visit. 100% of our library fees are put back into our library, to include the purchase of newly released games; replacement of damaged games; refurbishment of existing titles; and sanitization of our played games. We did not want to hide the cost in food and drink prices, because we believe in transparency when it comes to pricing. We really appreciate your understanding and support for maintaining our tabletop library!

Can I bring in my own games?

Guests are welcome to bring their own board games, but must support the business through the purchase of food or drink to occupy the table.

Are costumes permitted?

We encourage guests to rock costumes any time, especially for our themed events. While costumes are allowed daily, we simply cannot permit large props, helmets, or weapons of any kind without prior approval. Costumes shouldn’t show any M-rated body parts.

As the saying goes, “Don’t be a d*ck.”

We have a very strict anti-harassment policy that means everyone in our pub, from staff to guests, should be treated with respect and decency. If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, please let a member of our staff know ASAP.

How late can I order food?

During weekdays and on Sunday, our main kitchen shuts down at 10 p.m. On Fridays, Saturdays, and special event nights, our kitchen closes at 12:30 a.m. Times are subject to change, so please call ahead if you’re arriving later in the service. (407) 674-7435

Can I make a reservation?

Yes! We highly encourage reservations for weekends, event nights, or large parties. Please call 407-674-7435 with your name, contact info, party size, and time/day requested for your reservation. We require 24 hours advance notice for guaranteed reservations. You can also email reservation requests to hello@cloakandblaster.com.

Can I rent out The Cloak & Blaster for my party?

Absolutely! We’ve hosted bachelor parties, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, and corporate meetings. We can also accommodate larger events such as weddings, vow renewals, and more that involve renting out our establishment with full catering and event coordination. If you are interested in hosting your event with us, please email events@cloakandblaster.com with your event details (date, party size, time, special requests, etc.)
