Up-To-Date Store Hours, Weekly Schedules, and Tournament Prize Structures

Come to any of our stores and enjoy free open play any time of day, any day of the week! Bring your friends to play some games, or make new friends when you visit! Our stores are outfitted with tables and public restrooms, and are regularly cleaned. Masks and hand sanitizer are available at the counter for anyone who wishes, and we encourage our players to wear masks while in the store.

We buy and sell single cards everyday! We are always happy to look at Magic: the Gathering, Yugioh, and Pokemon cards that you’d like to sell. Feel free to bring your cards in anytime! If you have a large or particularly valuable collection, please call and make an appointment so we can sit down with you and give your collection proper attention. If you have any questions about whether we’d be interested in buying something, feel free to ask!

EVENTS RUN WEEKLY

We hold weekly tournaments for Magic: the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Flesh and Blood, Digimon, One Piece, Star Wars: Unlimited, Disney Lorcana, Cardfight!! Vanguard, Dragon Ball Super, and more! We also have days set aside for games like Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer 40,000! Join us for Friday Night Magic, and weekly MTG Drafts!

We also hold special events most weekends! Special events are typically larger events, such as Magic Regional Championship Qualifiers or Yugioh Premiere! Events (aka Sneak Peeks) with a larger attendance and often bigger prize payouts. Information on these can be found on their own posts on our website, typically several weeks prior to the event.

Read below for our up-to-date hours, weekly event schedule, and unified prize structures for ALL of our weekly tournaments.

TOURNAMENT PRIZE STRUCTURES

Moving forward most of our weekly events for all of our games will use these entry fees and prize structures.

Weekday events will be 3 rounds regardless of the number of players.
Weekend events will be 4 rounds as long as 10 or more people enter (otherwise 3 rounds)

We no longer have playoffs for weekly events. Instead, at the end of the tournament, each player gets a prize based on their win – loss – draw record.

This allows us to keep our weekly tournaments short and sweet, while still offering fair prizes regardless of the number of players in attendance. For example, if we run a weekday tournament with 30 players in attendance, we could expect about 4 players to earn the 3 – 0 prize payout, and about 11 players to earn the 2 – 1 prize payout. The event stays only three rounds, and everyone gets to go home at a reasonable hour!

Yu-Gi-Oh! weekly tournaments are the exception, since Konami requires Official Tournament Stores such as ourselves to award booster pack prizes and not store credit.
