With the thick aroma of chicken fingers and fries in the air and the din of mobs of people hunched over dozens of tables laughing, arguing and discussing strategies, it is clear that the Havana Club has been successfully transformed from one of the hottest salsa dance halls in Tel Aviv into a wonderland for Israel’s die-hard board-game-playing community.Last Sunday, nearly 200 board-game enthusiasts from around the country convened in the 1,000-sq.m. space to play one (or more) of the more than 50 games being offered at the monthly event. For an entry fee of NIS 30, board-gamers arrive early (at around 6 p.m.) and leave late, as the event lasts until 2 or 3 in the morning.
