Meet the hex&C0. owners


Greg founded The Uncommons, Manhattan’s first board game cafe, in 2013. Running out of space for his rapidly growing collection, he found some friends to help start the business, bringing coffee, beer, wine, tea, and a wide menu to Greenwich Village- along with one of the largest demo libraries in the world. The collection quickly outgrew that space too, and is now on semi-permanent loan to Hex & Company. The Uncommons continues to serve as a home for NYU gamers, and occupies the former home of The Village Chess Shop.
Some of Greg's favorite games include Lords of Waterdeep, Star Realms, Pandemic Legacy, Catan, and Splendor.

[Prior to creating The Uncommons, Greg traveled around the world, living in places as far afield as San Francisco, Honolulu, and Beijing, China. A native of Newton, Iowa and graduate of GWU in Washington, DC, he’s worked in fields as diverse as photography, education, web design, computer security, and journalism.


Jon founded The Brooklyn Strategist, in Carroll Gardens in 2012, responding to his daughter’s desire for a better after school program. It grew from there into one of the area’s most popular board game cafes, with a special focus on children and families, after-school programs and summer camps. Jon recognized that when they played board games together, kids were actively participatory, learning fundamental strategies and more advanced concepts.

Jon's favorite games include: Strat-O-Matic Baseball and Football, Puerto Rico, Go, Scrabble and Railways of the World.

Prior to starting The Brooklyn Strategist, he developed and ran a state-of-the-art, Neuroscience Research facility. As Director of Neuroscience Research, Dr. Freeman managed over 40 employees and was responsible for overseeing scientific and ethical clinical trial research. As a consultant, Dr. Freeman has advised companies regarding study development and data analyses. And during his years of private psychotherapy practice, Jon worked with a wide range of clientele.
