About us

Who are we?

Dice was founded in the Summer of 2015 when two different boardgaming groups came together with a shared vision. After a successful crowdfunding campaign, lots of local support and hard work the pieces fell into place to be able to open the first Board Game Lounge in Portsmouth.
