Second place goes to London, which has 47 co-working spaces around the city. London boasts the most offices with games rooms with nearly 1 in 5 (19%) offices having games rooms.

Shanghai comes in third place with 37 coworking spaces which is over double that of Seoul, South Korea. However, Shanghai only offers one office with a games room.
