I keep wanting to describe this as a deduction game, but there is no actual deduction. Instead, players lay cards to narrow the possibilities until they are able to place a 'visitor' in the Café. So logic is definitely involved, but (almost) all the information is in the open for the players.

The setting is Viennese café society in 1910, patronised by luminaries such as Freud, Klimt and Mahler. The question is, where will they sit in the café? The board is a floor plan of the eponymous establishment, showing tables of different shapes and colours, each with chairs of different colours. The cards show a shape or colour and are played either for one of the personalities or one of the player's own 'guests', to show where they might sit.

Points come from placing visitors in the café with possible bonuses at the end where players' guests share tables with personalities. This is a clever, subtle game, whose atmosphere is enhanced by the terrific illustrations – each guest is a unique drawing.

For 2-4 players, aged 10+, playing time 45 minutes: £27.00 (£22.50 without tax outside the EU)
