Labyrinth Games & Puzzles: what do users think?


Martin Lucero: Amazing selection and passionate, knowledgeable staff. Great place to try new games and meet other gamers! Great venue for parties too.
Response: Thanks. We are so happy that parties are back!

Danira Ortiz: Friendly staff. The store is very organized. They have a ton of stuff yet it doesn’t feel crowded. They do have signs but they are small and blend in. I wish they were more visible.
Response: Thanks. We are currently contemplating new signage so your feedback is appreciated. :)

Elizabeth Tate: The Thursday night board game nights are a ton of fun, and this board game shop has some seriously helpful staff. Don’t know how to play a game or you need a specific game? These people will show you the ropes! Awesome shop, now making it part of my weekly routine to come and hang out 💯
Response: Thanks so much for the review. We love everyone who plays games with us. :)

Nicole Woodworth: Absolutely amazing game store! The best one in DC!!! Everything is organized and easy to find, very reasonable prices, wide variety of board games, tabletop role playing games, Magic cards, Pokémon Cards, and more!!! The whole staff was extremely friendly despite being busy and took time to answer any questions we had. 10/10 highly recommend!!!

Daniel Hudson: Incredibly helpful staff, great selection, and competitive prices. They give a ton back to the community and run events for local youth. Best game store in the area. Check it out on Thursday nights for game night. Learn a new game and make a nee friend. Well worth the trip!
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. We always try to give back. It's very important to us.

Declan Glueck: This was an awesome stop! Great selection of games, knowledgeable staff, and really cute space overall. I left with a new board game, and look forward to trying out their board game night next Thursday.
Response: Aw, thanks so much. We hope you were able to make it to board game night. Please visit again soon.

Drew Carlisle: Really helpful staff that can always give suggestions appropriate to what you're looking for, a great selection of games and puzzles, and they have a dedicated section for kids. Would recommend and will return. Ask about their loyalty program and you can also browse their online store to have them pull your selections ahead of your arrival if you're not wanting to just come in and browse. Buy local :)
Response: Thanks so much! We love helping, and fully support buying small and local!

Edward Habib: Labyrinth is one of my favorite local businesses. They have a great selection, very friendly and well-informed staff, and the prices are generally on par with those on Amazon. Labyrinth also hosts great used game sales, giveaways, and community events. Every visit to Labyrinth is wonderful.
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. We really appreciate you.

Brandy Clements: The BEST store for puzzles, games, etc!!! Seriously me and my husband went shopping for ourselves, our 2 year old, and 6 year old and we ended up spending an hour just looking around (we bought way too much stuff too lol) the staff was SO sweet and knowledgeable. I overheard many conversations with other customers "I have an 11 year old girl who likes X, Y and Z what would you recommend?" And they knew exactly what to do and say. Well def be back as soon as we come back to DC!!
Response: Thanks so much. We hope to see you again soon. Recommendations are our staff's favorite game. :)

Rebecca Strang: I'm in town for a conference and love to check out game shops when I travel. Labyrinth did not disappoint! Super friendly and helpful staff, lovely selection of board games (love how they are organized, too), and I loooooved the selection of indie RPGs!! Oh, and I appreciate that masks are required! Will definitely visit whenever I'm in DC.
Response: It was nice meeting you! Whenever y'all are back in DC, let us know. We'd love to play games!!!

Huzzah Hobbies: what do users think?


Justin Majerle: Went to Huzzah for the first time this past weekend. Just wanted to check it out as I was in the area and had heard a lot about it. I was truly impressed almost immediately. I remember the old gamer shop model, small, dingy, and unorganized….Huzzah is the complete opposite of what was the industry standard. Upon entering I immediately took note of how clean and organized the place is. I was greeted three times in the first minute or two which is nearly unheard of in this day and age of retail. The place is huge and well laid out. There is a large area for gaming but it is on one side of the store, making it easy to navigate the retail side without having to squeeze by gaming tables. They have just about everything imaginable in the gaming genre from tabletop miniatures to board games. I really enjoyed the store and will definitely be back!
Response: Justin, Thank you for taking the time to write a very nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit and the people at Huzzah. We hope to see you more often and please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

hans lynch: Huzzah Hobbies is perhaps the best hobby store I have ever been to and I've been to a fair number including Games Workshop flagship store in London. Well stocked with a vast array of product lines. Best of all has a number of large gaming areas for both card and miniature games.
Response: Hans, Thank you for the five star review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Justin Cozzi: This place is amazing. Friendly staff and so much to choose from. I highly recommend for any gaming or modeling enthusiasts.Update from last post. The place is still amazing and they have vintage Gundam. I love it. Keep up the great work guys.
Response: Justin, Thank you for the five stars! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit and the people at Huzzah. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Tony McCurry: This was one of the most, if not the most, pleasant game stores I’ve ever been too. The more I looked around the more I discovered more of its charm. The staff was very friendly as well. I’m very envious of anyone who gets to go to this store on a regular basis.
Response: Tony, Thank you for the very nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoyed your visit. We look forward to having you back and please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Jo Nemo: Best store in the greater DC area for board games and hobby stuff. They have *every* brand of paint, tons of specialized tools, both standard gaming stuff (MTG, Warhammer) and harder to find fare (Malifaux, INFINITY, Marvel, Historical Wargaming) as well as GunPla I only wish it were closer to my home. I'd be here daily.
Response: Jo, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad you have what you are looking for. You can always move closer to us. ;-). Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Michelle Thomas: Great gaming store, with awesome people. They have one of the best mini, terrain, and dnd accessory collections I've seen in any of the other local stores.
Response: Michelle, Thank you for the five stars! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you enjoy our selection. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Sebastian C: Awesome "nerd" store! Highly recommend for anyone looking for TCG or tabletop games! Plenty of tables in the back
Response: Sebastian, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Erick Cifuentes: Clean store, always has product, events are organized and employees are always helpfull. Glad that I live a bit far from this store so I don't spend all my money here!
Response: Eric, Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your business and are glad you are close enough you come once in a while.. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Timothy Medric: Why bother supporting your LGS if the people working tell you they're not going to bother looking for a product? Edit following owner response: While I do appreciate you saying this, if you look at the recent reviews on here it all is the same - poor customer service. Your store is one that is decent and a fun atmosphere in the past when I've played there, but somewhere along the way your staff just leave much to be desired. I will say that there is one guy I've seen there working in the past, I think he may be a manager, I've always had incredible interactions with him, but that's about it.
Response: Timothy, We are very sorry you had a bad experience at Huzzah. I would be more than happy to discuss what happened and assist you in finding a product.

John Seaton: I love the staff and the community at Huzzah. The staff does a really great job of taking time to listen to and answer questions for my children. They carry everything we are interested in and the staff is ready to answer questions about everything. We meet friendly people every time we visit. The facility is spacious, clean, and bright.
Response: John, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We really appreciate your business and are glad that you and your kids enjoy your visits and the people at Huzzah. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future.

Dice City Games: what do users think?


Michael Ferrara: How do you know you're in a great LGS? Well, the awesome selection, including a ton of MTG and other singles. Friendly staff, which they have, is a must. Most importantly, though, is that the trash bin is not a mimic.

Jacob Brauer: If I could rate them higher I would, everyone is super friendly. The staff are great and really knowledgeable. The extensive amount of cards is great and you can quite often build full decks there without any need to order. I have been going here off and on for about 3 years now and I wouldn't stop. They preach community and respect over anything. The store is smaller but they use every inch perfectly, and are more then willing to accommodate if you are physically impaired. The customer service is amazing and the best in the area.

Dan Jerke: I stopped into Dice City looking to rekindle my 90s Magic nostalgia and was blown away. Jimmy & the staff were very friendly, conversational, and offered to show me their old school decks. The collection of singles was very impressive. To top it off, they have a ton of original artwork and signed prints — timeless stuff — better than any DC museum. I’ve never left a Google review but felt compelled to after visiting Dice City. Stop in & give them some business!!

Kai Rappaport: Best place to shop for MTG cards, you can email them a list of cards you want and they will get them all ready for you in less than 24 hours i ordered about 25 cards and they were ready in 3 hours. When i went to pick up my cards i told them my name and i went to get a couple more lands and the guy behind the counter threw them in there for free! Amazing place will definitely come back.

Chelsea-Rose: Great prices on sealed pokemon for release day, but you gotta get it while it lasts! There was quite a long line. Their vintage collection is not too shabby, with most prices on singles being negotiable it's a great place to check if you are trying to fill obscure collection gaps. Oh, also MTG everything is sold here along with Video games and systems that the newest generation has never heard of (not to make anyone feel old)

John Saddon: Staff can be pretty rude- subtly make you feel unwelcome in the space if you're not constantly buying things, speak disrespectfully or even yell if you're playing at a table they want for something else, in one case without them communicating that at all prior. They seem irritated at times if you're asking for help or talking to them and it's clear the interaction isn't going to involve you buying more. On top of all this, they already charge double what most stores charge for events- $10 to most stores' $5- this while most stores give you a pack of cards that costs $5 with guaranteed with entry, while at dice city, your entry fee gives you just a chance to win a prize in a raffle. Staff and Mgmt- lose the attitude, and quick. Less greed and disrespect, more cultivating a space for customers and players to actually enjoy occupying, capeesh?

ShinyNachos: I just recently started playing MTG and am relatively new to the energy of a local game shop. The staff I've met so far are really patient with my silly questions as well as my lists of single cards they've need to hunt down for me. I've been learning a lot there and excited to become a regular!

Francis Mcdoorman: Rude staff- seemed impatient and tried to upsell rather than be helpful. Staff member barked at me to sign in with store app that tracks players for wizards of the coast, gatekeepey and somewhat hostile environment

Lucas K: Awesome shop! Fun for kids and adults alike, very welcoming. Great prices, knowledgeable staff, the owner is incredible. We are so happy to have Dice City Games in the area!
Response: Lucas, thanks for the awesome review. We're happy to have you as part of our community. Come hang out with us again soon! -Dice City Games

musiew: The board game nights are very fun, only $5 for a great time. Part video games, part board/card game store. The board game selection there is very good.

Child's Play Toys & Books: what do users think?


Scott Selliers: While in town for my wife’s work, my son and I have been out exploring the city. We have never been much for buying tchotchkes as souvenirs, yet few things can bring back the memories of travel like a material thing found along the way. After visiting the gift shop at the National Aquarium in Baltimore and seeing the crummy toy offerings, I told my son we’d find a real toy store - and Child’s Play Toys & Books is definitely that! We were greeted and assisted by passionate toy aficionados - professional retailers. Take your time when you visit this store - there’s a ton to see. Now my son has a quality toy that will bring back memories of our DC trip. We also had a puzzle gift wrapped for free at the counter as a gift for my father-in-law for watching our animals - this was the perfect store for us today! (You know you’re dealing with a serious store when they have an entire shelf dedicated to the best board game ever made - Catan!)
Response: You made our day! Thank you so much for visiting! We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to town.

Martin Lucero: What an awesome story, great toys and games for people of all ages. The store is far bigger than you might first realize and they are incredibly well stocked. The staff are passionate and helpful. They were able to discuss Legos in detail with my seven year old son and help me find the perfect board game based on my vague requirements. On top of all that, the prices are very reasonable.

beyondTabu: Lots of options. Shelves were sparse which is expected as it’s Christmas time. Staff were friendly and helpful. They have wrapping at the back of the store for purchases.
Response: We've been hit by the supply chain issues, too, unfortunately. Thank you for the kind words!

Christabelle Cruz: The best toy and gift store ever! I’ve come here multiple times and every time, a worker asks if they can help. I tell them the ages of the children I’m shopping for as well as the interests, and they always direct me to the perfect options and gift. They are super knowledgeable and helpful! Always a positive and happy shopping experience at Child’s Play!
Response: Yay! We're so glad you've had great experiences. We appreciate your business and your kind words!

Walt Nicholson: This is one of the best toy stores I’ve come across in years. If you have a child who needs a toy - it’s here. All ages, abilities and interests. Lots of fun educational toys as well as sheer joy. Big Lego section, model rockets and tons for little ones. The staff were super friendly and made perfect recommendations. Will definitely be back for birthday presents to come!
Response: Yay! Thanks for the kind words!

Lisa Lavelle: This is the best toy store ever! Love the helpful staff, they always have great recommendations and they are incredibly knowledgeable about the products. Wonderful selection of toys, games, and books.
Response: Thank you so much, Lisa! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Leif Engler: Amazing place to buy toys, especially legos and figurines. There is also a small book area in the back aswell. Would recommend.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

PauloMichelle Dorsey: This place is amazing, my son has been busy in an adventure of a lifetime. You may not have Toys R Us, (RIP) but you can bet the adventure awaits you here. The pictures is just a point of the mass of toys. There's parking in the back and the front. Food and Starbucks next door. The employees are Soo helpful with joy.
Response: Thanks for stopping in & for your kind words. You made our day!

Martha Coe: Best toy shop in the district. You can always find something good for a present.
Response: Thank you, Martha! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Christina Valentiner: This place is magical. I want to buy everything for my kid but I dont- they have a huge selection and the staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable.
Response: Thank you, Christina! We appreciate you taking the time to write such a lovely review!

Fantom Comics: what do users think?


James Bacon: Nice shop with a great selection of current comics and graphic novels. Some nice displays and thoughtful art on the walls. Not a back issue store, per se, they had recent issues, and a solar box, but ample to enjoy and find, excellent selection for kids. Friendly staff for sure.

Andy Benavente: Awesome shop! Great selection of graphic novels and current comics! The young woman behind the counter was very helpful and provided some great recommendations from the writer of the book I picked up. Would highly recommend to stop in and check out!

Paul Scarborough: Polite and quiet staff offered help that much I can say. 1st and last visit I shall do however, no stock of anything. Find it amazing a comic shop has only 3 issues of something so common and popular a character as Spider-Man. I’d describe this more as an indie comic book shop carrying more less popular characters. Hardly any backstock and the stuff they did have was shoved in a box and damaged without bags and borders

Luis Pantoja: Great comic book store with friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have always had a positive experience when visiting this shop. I highly recommend it!

Kevin Xu: Great selection of mainstream and emerging comic artists, with a wide variety of genres. I personally got a copy of Djelia by Juni Ba, something you can't get from a Barnes and Noble or Books a million, atleast in the NOVA area Staff are super helpful in trying to find what you're looking for, and the hallway always smells like fresh bread thanks the Subway nearby

Michael Kellar: Awesome little comic shop. Friendly staff, comfortable environment to look around, read a comic, and explore. If you’re in the area and looking for a space to check out some of the more recent interesting comics, definitely a good spot to check out.

J Foodgeek: Good selection, but mainly I'm rating it well because the two kids working there today were super nice and willing to talk about anime. Today was the first time I went there. They even have a few board games. Also, there are sometimes some freebies on the left when you walk in, like I saw a movie poster once, a marvel calendar once, and they usually have den of geek magazines out.
Response: Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again soon! And thanks for the great review!

Kamal C: @Fantomcomics in #washingtondc #dupontcircle is most definitely a place you would want to visit bo matter if you are a DC native or just visiting. Fantom Comics is among my favorites of all places to spend a little time, some things that makes this place cool is the chill layout,the little knickknacks,collectables,pins,snacks and more... even if you dont collect comics this place has something for everyone.😎👍🏻 "" Hey everyone this is kamal and I like to do reviews in my spare time from work and if you enjoy any of my post please like with a thumbs up and follow me on here on Google Maps or Instagram @chefkamalc Thanks and stay safe 🙏 mask up 😷
Response: Hi, Kamal. Thanks for the kind review! We appreciate your support. Hope you can visit us again soon. Cheers!

R KM: Great spot. Nice selection and “subscription” service. Check the bargain boxes for scores (some at only $1)

Jonathan Mckay: Lovely little comic book store with a fun rating system for new releases, staff picks, events and custom grab bags
