About Counter Culture
They decided to give up the academic life in Abu Dhabi and combine their passion for good food, good coffee, good beer and good games to provide Wellingtonians with a welcoming space to meet friends, make friends, learn games and play games. Come and get your game on!
Ahmed is at his happiest playing games, talking about games, buying games, reading rules for games, looking at games, holding games, moving games around on the shelf, being surrounded by games (you get the picture) so basically, he’s found his happy place. He also uses his kids as the perfect foil to feed his Lego habit. He’s a big kid at heart.
Baker, kitchen all-rounder and game guru. She plays loads of board games and is a real natural at teaching them. Charlotte loves social deduction games, especially One Night Ultimate Werewolf. She recently completed her degree in philosophy, religion and English Lit, so she is now fully qualified to write a fantastic sci-fi or a cracking self-help book.
Patrick studies architecture, so he is skilled at creating interesting sculptures out of everyday kitchen objects. When he’s not keeping the kitchen immaculate and helping out back of house, Patrick designs some pretty amazing digital illustrations.
You’ll find Tim in the kitchen, rocking a pink bandanna. His pastries and sweets are out-of-this world and should come with addiction warnings. Especially the caramel slice. And also the macarons. And also the ice-cream sandwiches. Tim is the reigning Counter Culture champion of King of Tokyo. He is literally the King. Of Tokyo.
