Gaming, Shopping, and Gift Cards

It’s been some time since we posted here so let us bring you up to date.  We’ve made some adjustments to better match the needs of our gaming community.  Our key areas of focus continue to be trading card and miniature games.  The primary games at this time are Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Yugioh, Dragonball Super and you can purchase cards online by clicking on the “Shop” button.  We still have Games Workshop products, including Citadel paints. We also carry DnD figures and have a DnD crowd coming in regularly now.  We still have a great selection of supplies and a small selection of board games.  We have gift cards too for those extra special gifts for people you know love to play but you’re not sure what they most want.

The biggest change is that we no longer have the Escape Room.  It was Valdosta’s first Escape Room and was a ton of fun for many people for nearly three years.  We changed the theme regularly and my personal favorite in terms of theme and puzzles was the Superhero Room.  They were all fun though! So why did we move away from this? Our community of gamers has grown considerably since we opened and more space was needed for the “regulars.” It was a tough choice but the right one based on our community of players.  If you are looking for an Escape Room, do not worry.  They have popped up all over the place!  There is Epic in Valdosta and many options in both Tallahassee and Jacksonville.  We still play Escape Games ourselves when traveling and you don’t have to go far to find one.  Thank you to the many who visited our room, including those who came back nearly every time we changed the theme.

Stop in soon!  If you don’t know how to play the games we offer, we’ll teach you.  If you already know how, you’ll be in great company.  Either way, we look forward to seeing you!

It’s time for some games!

Welcome! We are so happy to have the help of Gary Kuhlmann in getting this new site up and running just as we begin our third year as Valdosta’s locally owned game store.  We bring you card games like Magic the Gathering and Pokémon, both of which have big prerelease events coming up in January.  We offer you miniatures such as Warhammer 40K, Warhammer AOS, Star Wars X Wing, and Infinity. We have an escape room with new themes and puzzles every few months. We rent and sell board games too.  If we don’t have something you’re looking for, we can usually order it for you. We try to offer many options for having fun for people across South Georgia and North Florida.

We think you’ll find our place to be a great one to hang out and play your choice of games. One of our miniature players, Michael Hebert, dubbed us “South Georgia’s Premier Gaming Center” and we’re aiming to live up to that reputation.  Some others, including Mitchell Kirk, call us the “Nersh.”  We like having that nickname too; it’s short for Funertia (pronounced fun-er-shuh).  Often we are simply called “the shop.” Whatever you call us, we’re glad to be your friendly local game store. We look forward to seeing you!
