Claudia-Liza Armah headed to Draughts, to hear the story of how two rivals declared things a draw before they got to a stalemate, and managed to work together to launch their café - with a little help from 500 Kickstarter backers.
Found in Acton Mews in Haggerston, the café lets its punters stay and play as long as they like. With a well stocked bar, there's not just one type of draughts available.
Claudia-Liza chatted to Toby Hamand, the co-owner of Draughts, to hear how things started and how they sourced investment for the idea.
She also spoke with Haley Summers, the "games guru", who helps choose games for customers to play.
