Board Game Tournaments in Arkansas

Is there anything better than gathering with your loved ones to play a board game? We submit that the only thing better is playing MULTIPLE board games, all day, with large groups of other board game enthusiasts!* What’s that? You’ve never attended one of our board game tournaments in Arkansas? Tragedy! 

Let us tell you all about what you’re missing out on! As your friendly local game store (or FLGS as those in the know like to say), we’re here to facilitate friendship, level up your nerd game, and play some freakin’ tabletop games. We even have space specifically dedicated to playing board games – and we intend to use it. 

Events for Kids

If you’re looking for Magic the Gathering (jr. league) events, Pokemon tournaments, or board game tournaments in Arkansas, you’re in the right place. Check our events calendar for our weekly events – we update it often! Don’t see anything you’re interested in? Give us a call and let us know what you’re looking for! We bet other people want the same thing and we’re happy to try and organize. 

This summer we’re hosting a D&D Beginners Camp for all young adventurers ages 8-17. Camp lasts for 5 days from 11am-3pm and they are held in June, July, and August. 

And if you want to hang with the kids, just bring them by and test out a game or two – we guarantee you’ll find something they get absolutely hooked on. Bonus – strategy games promote brain development and critical thinking skills! Just don’t tell them that…

Events With Beer (AKA Grown-Up Kid Events)

Our fav local brewery – Flyway Brewery – sponsors our Adult Game Night! Sip craft brews while you socialize with fellow players and play any board game you desire – we have a library of hundreds to choose from! On the slim chance we don’t have it, you’re also welcome to bring your own game! 

Bring your friends, have a drink, make some new friends (not necessarily in that order, but hey, sometimes it helps), and enjoy yourself. Everyone is welcome so you can bring the kiddos if you like, but (obviously) you must be 21 or over to drink. We always ID. Always

We Set the Stage

Sure gaming events in your friend’s basement are great, but wouldn’t it be nice to spread out a little, be able to buy some snacks or a craft beer, and be surrounded by dozens of like-minded, soon-to-be-friends? Yeah. That’s why we created our well-lit playing space – 6,000 sq ft to be precise! 

Running a (completely unbalanced but no judgment) 10 person D&D campaign? THIS is the place to meet. New in town and looking for a way to unwind and meet cool people who you already know share your interests? Check out our board game tournaments! Anyone can enter and you don’t have to have a group to play. 

You can also use the area to paint miniatures – the lighting is perfect for that. We also have a full inventory of supplies and our professional nerds would love to help you out if you need some guidance or inspiration.  

Gaming for All!

Whether you’re a noob, or you’ve been playing for 30 years, this is a safe, welcoming, fun place to hang. We have game nights dedicated to MTG, Warhammer 40K, HeroClix, Dragon Ball Super Constructed, and more! Join your fellow players and trade, gossip, learn, and challenge one another. Our Facebook page always has the most current MTG events listed – we even have different events for various formats!

Don’t see your favorite game? Start your own dang night! You’re always welcome to bring your crew down and Play. Those. Games. It makes our lives worth living – it’s why we opened in the first place!

If you have any questions or you’re looking for board game tournaments in Arkansas, contact us online or drop by the store! We’re always happy to help. 

*Short side note: as we were writing this article, COVID-19 caused some changes in our events, schedules, and day-to-day operations. We are NOT holding board game tournaments on the premises currently and D&D day camp is a wait and see. Follow us on Facebook for the most up-to date and correct information. We take your health and safety – as well as the health and safety of our employees – very seriously. We are practicing social distancing, only allowing 10 people in the store at a time, offering curbside assistance, and we developed an online store to place orders. Check it out here! 

Thanks for shopping local and sharing your love of gaming with us!
