Are you ready to team up with your fellow board gamers tomorrow and search for treasure?! Well come join us Thursday at 6:30 for some adventuring fun!


Escape: The Curse of the Temple is a cooperative game in which players must escape (yes...) from a temple (yes...) which is cursed (yes...) before the temple collapses and kills one or more explorers, thereby causing everyone to lose.


Sounds pretty amazing to me and I snakes!

Martian Invasion is Coming! Showcase needs brave recruits to send the Tripods back to the Red Planet!!!


On October 30th we'll have Ed Spettigue up to the Swarthmore store for an evening of 'All Quiet on the Martian Front'. This is a small scale miniature game with a story taken from War of the Worlds. The martians return to earth in force right around the time of World War 1. It's steam powered tanks and cavalry on Harley Davidsons vs. tripods and heat rays. Pick a side and roll some dice. All models supplied by us and no knowledge of the game needed. We'll be setting up a huge table and playing out a large game. We'll also have hot steak sandwiches, pizza, and cold drinks to keep you going. You can stay for the evening or just roll dice for an hour. All up to you. We'll probably set up and run an early game and a late game. Fun starts at 5pm and runs to 9pm or later.
