Gamers and those with a penchant for nerdy activities: Leslieville is about to get a gaming lounge. 

Fight or Flight Games, opening at Queen and Jones, is a new lounge space purpose-built for console gaming and card games. 

Whether you're looking to introduce your kids to your favourite childhood video games or battle aliens all on your own, the shop will be a hub for gaming culture in Toronto's east end. You'll be able to dive into a selection of hundreds of games on consoles ranging from classic Nintendo to Xbox One. 

"We have five stations each set up with their own TV in which people can come in and rent by the hour," says Nate Whitehead of Fight or Flight Games. "The basement is set up with tables for customers to come and either play card games — Magic The Gathering, Pokemon, etc. — or use their laptop or mobile device with our high-speed internet."

The shop will have a selection snacks and drinks, but the priority here is gaming and that's where the team is focusing efforts. 

Fight or Flight Games is slated to open May 8 at 1175 Queen St. E. Check them out on Facebook or Instagram.
