Pre-orders We are currently taking pre-orders for the new magic set Future Sight and Empire and Alliance the new Star Wars set. If you order and pay for a booster display of Magic or a case of Star Wars ahead of time we are offering a 20% discount. If there are any other games that are coming out that you are interested in pre-ordering a case or display we will find out pricing for you now.
As always thank you for supporting our store with your patronage! We really do appreciate your business! Recently one of my main competitors closed their store. I have mixed feelings on this store's closing. On the one hand, it means I do not have to compete with that store on price anymore (they discounted a lot of their products), but it saddens me to hear of any store in my industry that closes. I personally developed my love for Heroclix and Star Wars miniatures at Who's On First and so I feel that it is a big loss to the community. If anyone knows anyone from that store please refer them to us. The pressures of competing with internet sites and flea markets that do not have to pay half the rent I do is difficult at best. I literally can not compete with them on price, but I knew that when I opened my store. I feel that my staff and I provide a level of customer service that no other store can deliver. I also provide a clean, friendly, safe, and entertaining area to play your favorite games. I would like to personally thank all of my loyal customers for keeping me in business... I truly do appreciate your patronage over the past 7 months. I would also like to thank you for referring your friends and family to my store and adding to my small but growing gaming community.
Games & Gifts Galore gift certificates are a great way to show someone you care. Pick one up today! Sorry to interrupt the fun, but please do not sell products to other customers in our store. That is like going into Burger King to sell your hamburgers you just made on your George Foreman grill. Burger King would not allow it and neither will we. We now return you to the fun!
Celebrate your next special occasion at Games & Gifts Galore. Game parties make great parties! Ask for details today! It is report card time again... if you bring in your current report card with all A's and B's you will receive 10% off of any single item in the store.
Sorry to interrupt the fun, but please do not bring outside food and drink to Games & Gifts Galore. That is like going to a sit down restaurant and taking up a table, but eating food that you prepared at home or bought from another restaurant. We do sell a plethora of different snack and beverage items and every purchase helps keep the store in business. If we do not carry your favorite snack or beverage item let us know maybe we can purchase some for the store. Back to the fun!
We also want your used entertainment items. CDs, DVDs, Used board games, used novels, comic books, video games, etc. We trade for all of these products and more.
I have recently been approached to run a VS hobby League and Yugioh tounaments as well. I will gladly do both if I have enough customers interested in these games. If you are interested or know someone that is please contact us. We are thinking of Wednesday nights for VS... we are not sure about Yugioh, but we are looking for customer feedback.

Vintage Format Deck Construction Updated December 1, 2005
Constructed decks must contain a minimum of sixty cards. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance. If a player wishes to use a sideboard, it must contain exactly fifteen cards.
With the exception of basic land cards, a player’s combined deck and sideboard may not contain more than four of any individual card, counted by its English card title equivalent. All cards named Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest are basic. (The five Ice Age snow-covered lands -- Snow-Covered Plains, Snow-Covered Island, Snow-Covered Swamp, Snow-Covered Mountain, and Snow-Covered Forest -- are also basic lands. Note that snow-covered lands are permitted only in formats that allow the Ice Age set to be used.)
