Return to In-Store Play (Includes information on vaccine passports)
For the last 2 weeks we have been able to return to in-store play without 2 meter distancing or physical barriers and have spaces available for drop in trading card and miniature play and a regular schedule of organized events on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Things have gone well and everyone has been careful and respectful, thank you.

Due to the younger ages that play in our D&D campaigns we are giving schools a month or so of a headstart to bring that age group together before starting our programs. We plan to begin running store hosted D&D sessions again the first weekend in Nov with 2 weekly sessions Sat & Sun 12pm-3pm. If you are interested please contact the store and leave your information, we will contact you as soon as we have events planned.
The Pokemon company has not yet removed their in-store play suspension due to the pandemic. As soon as Pokemon removes the play suspension we will begin to run our free Official Pokemon League and Prerelease events again. If you would like to be contacted when Pokemon events are starting please contact the store and leave your information, we will contact you as soon as we have events planned.
Covid Pandemic, Vaccine Passports and In-store Play
We have been in dialogue with the TBDHU to determine a set of restrictions that keeps our community safe while enjoying their favourite hobbies. We won’t be requiring a vaccine passport to shop or play in events. To accommodate this we can’t allow customers or players to eat any food within the store. Drinks are still allowed and we still sell packaged snacks but they must be eaten outside or take a quick meal break at one of the many restaurants in our immediate area.
GW continues to be 2-4 weeks behind on processing/shipping wholesale orders but we are receiving a large order this week and just received a special restock order not directly connected to customer orders which will help fill in some orders and the shelves. Thank you for your patience while GW works on upgrading their warehouse logistics. We are always working hard to get things shipped asap.
