Great local store

I know what makes the goblin giddy its the large amount of choice in games. Located on the main street they dont mind people browsing and looking.

This little store contains lots of interesting toys and games for all ages. You can often see groups of all ages playing tournaments like D and D or just hanging out. The employees are very knowledgeable and are eager to help. Awesome place to shop

You will often find groups playing tournaments and you can try out any game at the back for a nominal fee. They also have comics and occasional Harry Potter merch. They can order things... More

Shopped specifically for educational games for a young girl and was happy to have found all I needed. I would like the items a bit more organized and easier to locate the type of things I'm looking for but otherwise it's a good shop to have around.

Game shelves are not cramped and they had many games for different ages. Right away the friendly staff asked if I was lokking for anything in particular. Store... More

Not just old board games but a good selection of new ones that normally we'd go to the city to find. They even have a games night where kids can try out the new games before buying.
