Reminder Dragon Ball Super Draft Box 06 Giant Force is in stock!
A note to those of you looking to pick up Commander Legends booster boxes during Commander Legends Prerelease weekend. Unfortunately we only have enough to run our prerelease events this weekend as the rest of our shipment has been delayed to the actual Commander Legends release date of November 20th. Unfortunately that means we do not have any booster boxes available for sale until the 20th. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
For everyone who has pre-ordered Vivid Voltage through us; our shipment has arrived and you guys may start coming into the store to pick up your pre-orders!
Restock of MG kits hit the store today, and finally some Action Bases! Some will eventually make their way to the webstore but stop by the store proper to secure a copy.
Commander Legends Pre-orders and Registration for Pre-release will be live this weekend! (Oct 25th). No need to pre-pay as per usual, just call in or message with your order and we'll see you on prerelease weekend (Nov 13th) and release day (Nov 20th).

Trading Cards
We currently carry the largest selection of Pokemon Trading Card Game singles in Calgary. We buy and trade as well so whether you are looking to complete a competitive deck, fill in that empty slot in your binder, or just want a friendly face to teach you how to play, we are the place to be!
Magic the Gathering is really picking up at the store. Fully sanctioned and with a focus on casual, semi-competitive events that fosters fair play and welcomes beginners, we have a very well stocked and sorted singles selection down to the commons. No rule-sharking here at the chillest LGS in town. Expect home brews, a good time, and thriving Commander/EDH (20+ players weekly) and Drafting scenes.
We are sanctioned for Yu-Gi-Oh! too and boast the best singles selections in town for the game! Compete, trade, and take advantage of the most competitively priced sealed YGO products in Calgary.
Store credit from trade-ins can be used for Anything in the store!

Miniatures and Board Games
TCGs aren’t or only focus. you’ll find a wide selection of Games Workshop products we can custom order in for you, as well as Calgary's most attended, and chillest, Gundam/Gunpla builders scenes. We are a small store, but make up for it with competitive prices (for example, as of 2019, we only charge less than $180 for Gloomhaven) and a busy Custom Order Program. We will never demand for payment beforehand and are always asking for suggestions to what to bring in to expand the store.

Tables Fees
We have a minimal $3/person table fee. As long as you support the store by spending more than $3 during your time here, you'll have access to our full library of in-store Board Game Rentals and learner TCG decks. And, that's that! We try to keep it simple, affordable, and welcoming at the store :)
Please spend more money here though... I need to pay for my kids' shoes
