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!!!

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.

Victory Comics: what do users think?


Steve Carle: Friendly helpful staff. Huge selection of Magic and pretty good selection of Pokemon. Tons of singles as well. They do Magic drafts Friday at 630 and Sat & Sun at 12. There was also a big table and boxes of discount stuff.

Ted Kidwell: Went to the shop on Tuesday for the first time picked up a couple nice items and we already gone through the make an appointment to meet with her appraisers to sell some items and we did pretty good there too they are very knowledgeable staff and they are fair on their prices and they're good on what they offer you as well they have toys and games and surprisingly some items that you wouldn't think they would have had if you're in the collecting Market to comics and toys for games and that a little trinkets give them a try here we like them they're very conveniently located easy to get to and easy to find you'll be very pleased we highly recommend

Robert: The folks at this comic shop are the BEST! My daughter and I came in because she wanted “a nature comic about sloths” and I was looking for some of the new Magic the Gathering cards. After we completely befuddled the friendly person working the front desk, my daughter took a seat to rest and I went card shopping, figuring such a task would not be fulfilled on this day. Well, as the equally lovely person at the rear desk answered all my questions and showcased various products, the valiant front desk attendant tracked us down with A NATURE COMIC WITH A SLOTH IN IT!!! Quest fulfilled! Not only did my daughter get her comic, but I pulled some truly exceptional cards from the bundle I had purchased. Five stars are not enough for this crack squad. Kudos all around.

David Collier: A very well organized store with a great deal of selection. Only issue i had was when I dropped off some MTG cards for possible sale and was quoted $300. Sold the same cards to Card Kingdom for over $800. Either that final sale was far too generous or Victory low balled their "offer" in an attempt to pull a fast one. If you're looking to sell a collection, always get a second appraisal and offer. Lesson learned.

Daniel Hernandez: The staff here are the worst. They treat you like trash even when you're a paying customer. They roll their eyes and get mad when you ask if they have a product. I walked in for the first today and I was so excited and amazed. Gots a few packs and the staff was rude to me and my brother. The owner needs to know his staff treats his paying customer like trash. I'm never going there again. The place is nice but do not expect anything for the employees.

Vinny Sivaraman: Big store. Very good selection. I bought quite a few Pokemon cards for my Son and some other items I haven't really been able to find online.

Tom Luna: I’ve played a this location several times before however last night was my last one. I don’t like writing negative reviews unless people really deserve it. First of all the prices on single cards are very high at this location compare to other stores and on TCG but that’s not why I’m writing this review the main reason I gave this location 1 star is because of Steve the guy who runs the magic events. He is arrogant, condescending, rude and disrespectful I guess he forgot the people that play at this store pay his salary! His demeanor and attitude is awful he acts like he is doing us a favor by him being there! Unfriendly and unapproachable. Next time I’m Norther VA I’ll go to the store in old town Fairfax. I’ve been playing magic since I was in the Army and I had the opportunity to play in different stores in different states but this guys attitude is by far the worst and like I said IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED.

Jake Davison: Very nice comic and hobby shop in Falls Church. They have a great supply of new and back issues of popular Marvel/DC and more. I would say that their prices for back issues are a decent bit higher than surrounding shops however. But a counterpoint is they seem to have a larger collection due to it. Lots of various collectibles, statues, and action figures ranging from GI Joe to Star Wars and more. They also have a nice gaming section, with lots of D&D, and also one of the few stores to carry Star Wars Armada. Only other negative is that there is very limited parking. Staff was very nice, but didn't have much interaction due to it being quite busy on a Saturday.

Brenna Miaira Kutch: Fantastic local comic shop, very LGBT friendly and selections for all ages, plus a ton of board games, figurines, and other fun collectables. Staff are super nice and if you're looking for something, you can call ahead and ask or they'll order stuff for you. Support local businesses!!

Natasha Trock: I love this place. Excellent books and staff. Very LGBTQ positive. Got to get over there more

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Matthew Henry: What an incredible surprise. This place is awesome. Needed to buy some holiday gifts, walked in and was met with can I help you. Said, yes, and had wonderful choices for a 1 year old and six year old. For kids of all ages, this is the place!
Response: Thanks for shopping with us and for the awesome review! We can't wait to see you again!

Super Bit Video Games: what do users think?


Hailey Kim: Old days fun retro games. You can find many games here. Packs, cd, etc. make a visit and check out to see if you can find your old favorites that you have been missing for years. I only briefly visited but it was so much fun going through stuff. They also seem to fix and clean your consoles and game gears. Check it out.

Luis Zena (RetroGamingLife): This is a really nice little shop. A little crowded but good overall. They do have a decent selection of games and the staff was really helpful! I browsed through their games and couldn’t decide what to get!!!! So much stuff! I was visiting from Miami and it’s always nice to find these type of shoppes keeping the hobby alive. I’ll definitely be back! Keep up the good work!!!

Basel El-Shrafi: Haven’t visited their new location yet, but I loved the Falls Church store. The staff is nice, helpful, and cool to talk to. I feel so much positive nostalgia when I visit.

Chris Pascuzzo: The Annandale location of Super Bit Video Games is a bit further from Washington DC, but every bit worth it. It has a similar feel, but perhaps a bit more room compared to the former location. Being a Nintendo fan, I was really excited to see tons of NES & SNES games. If you love retro video games then you must visit Super 8 Bit!

Jacob Huffman: Courteous, friendly staff, with a fantastic selection of games and gaming items at stellar prices. A fantastic shop all-around! Even had a small mistake happen that they took care of immediately with a smile. Owner and staff are truly wonderful folks!

O'mar Mozelle: Excellent place to shop for retro games. I've been shopping at this spot for some years now, even moved with them to the new place. Outstanding people, pleasant environment, and a welcome addition to retro gaming as a whole.

Claudio Cobian: I recently stopped in Super Bit for the first time to trade in some items. The staff was incredibly friendly and I was thrilled the prices they offered for my trade ins. I opted for store credit because this will certainly be my go to for any retro game purchases!

Brian Naeem: A great store, when I went it was pretty crowded so you Know lots of cool games come through here, very good prices for consoles and they even have some select units in open box condition. I will definitely return and bring the rest of my friends who collect games.

Jack Cooter: Fantastic store with a great range. Staff are knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. Top notch service in trade ins. Highly recommended for all your retro gaming needs!

Chris Sewell: Nice wide open space, lots of things from various generations. I drove quite far to come here on a recommendation of a coworker. Unfortunately didn’t have the best of experience. Bought a handful of GB/GBC games. Well priced, so that was a plus. The guy that helped check out was friendly and helpful. Went out to the car and tested everything out. Got to a game that didn’t run at all. Took it back in and they quickly took it to their back room and cleaned up the cartridge, showed it working on their Gameboy. Awesome. Got back out to the car and while it ran at first, after reinserting it the game stopped working and I could only get it to run occasionally. While this is on an Analogue Pocket, the 20+ carts I’ve run on it before have worked great. I tried the final game I bought and that didn’t run at all. Took both back in to have them look at the second game and maybe relook at the first one. A different person helped me this time, and she was quite defensive the whole time. It’s a whole $15 of games between the two, I’m not that worried if I bought worn out games. That happens. I just wanted to know if that’s what it was. She took both to the back and came back with the first one showing it running on a GB. It’d be much better if they just brought a Gameboy out and tested it there, but they don’t. I heard them blowing on a cart so I asked if that’s what they did (to fix it) and she said it worked right away, but then she blew on the cart. I asked why, just to better understand their troubleshooting process in case it’d be something I could try on these carts myself in the future, and she continued to be defensive over it. Brought the other cart out after opening it up and cleaning it, showed it working. I asked if she’d remove the cart and reinsert it to test it working again, as that was my issue previously. She turned off the Gameboy and turned it back on. When I asked again for her to reinsert the cartridge I was met with the same defensiveness about the whole situation. Good selection, good pricing, mostly good experience, but ultimately not something I’d drive back for.

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

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.

One Two Kangaroo Toys: what do users think?


Daniel Stuart Holmes: They have great toys that my kids love. A lot of the toys here are ones that are not sold in the larger “big box” retailers. Charlie (the owner) is a fantastic person and is always incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

alex stevens: The store is small and does not stand out among the numerous restaurants and shops of Shirlington and it only has a few rooms but it is literally packed floor to ceiling with toys for all ages. The shop clerk was passionate and happy to go thru the stores wares to help me find the right toy for my nephews fist birthday. The selection is excellent with a wide variety of toys that range from the toy sets and vehicles to puzzles that start from a few months thru toddlers and older. The store offers gift wrapping as a service and it is wonderful to walk out with a toy freshly wrapped after browsing thru their selection. I have made it a point to tell my family about this store and i will happily make this my first choice to shop at in the future.

Lindsey: I visit this toy shop about 10x a year. When you walk in, it’s like you’ve entered a place of pure joy——like when the Beast shows Belle the library. That kind of joy. They have something for kids of all ages starting at newborn (I like the 1,000 piece puzzles and board games). The owners are great at providing suggestions based on a child’s age and even personality. On more than one occasion I needed to stick to a budget, so the owner helped me find the perfect gifts and stay within that budget. These are not gifts you can find in your local retail store. They are quality gifts, and because of that + small business, they can be pricey, so keep that in mind as you explore the shop. A must visit when in Shirlington.

Melanie Frost: Delightful! I can't remember the last time I was in a store that sparked actual delight. It is so fun to be in a toy store with an owner that cares so much and thoughtfully picks out each toy and book. I recognized many of the premier brands (Hape, Haba, Magna-tiles, etc) that make toys my kids use over and over. I got several personalized recommendations for birthday presents from the owner's sister who was watching the store. The prices are fair and they do have toys at all price levels. For me, if there was any little extra it was worth it for the vanishing experience of joy and expert assistance, along with knowing I am supporting a local business that was hurt badly in the pandemic. Worth the trip!

Rachel Sloan: Wonderful little store, found everything I needed for my friends’ new babies! The lady who helped me made some good recommendations and was very helpful.

Frances Ding: This place is amazing! It is a small store but there is an incredible selection since they restock daily. The owner is very knowledgeable about all his products - and children and their development. He told us his philosophy is to stock toys that all have some educational or developmental component. I really appreciate his curated selection, especially since it is overwhelming to pick good quality toys now. Overall, will definitely be coming back, and feel lucky to have stumbled across this gem of a store!

Kathleen Lewis: This store is my absolute favorite children's store. I've been going there for years and always leave happy that I stopped in. The owner, Charlie, is the kindest, most helpful man. The selection of toys are high-quality and well curated. Whether you're shopping for your own children or have no idea what to get for a friend's child or relative, please go support this local, small business. Charlie will point you in the right direction but with no pressure or upselling. If you're not already convinced, there's also free and adorable gift wrapping!

Nathan W: Great store, fantastic selection of high quality toys. I bought a gift for a friend’s child, and the owner even wrapped it for me. With stores reopening now to a slightly different world, now is your chance to support and preserve small businesses - and to say no to Amazon and big box stores!

Camille Galdes: This is the greatest toy store in the area--extremely wide selection of well curated, high-quality toys from all over the world. The owner is so knowledgeable and kind and helpful everyone who comes in find the appropriate gift or toy for their little one. I'm trying to find a way to get at least a gift certificate for this store during the COVID19 crisis because nothing would make be sadder than if our favorite toy store closed.

Lisa Delmonico: This toy store is a gem. It is tiny and filled floor to ceiling with nothing but fabulous high quality toys and games. We have shopped there for years. The owner is a kindly man who knows his toys and games as well as children and parents. Our kids are older now but he still has great games and puzzles for them and us. You receive very personalized attention here from someone who knows. Although I love amazon as much as the next person, shopping here is a wonderful experience and worth the trip!

Zachary Stewart: I had to pick up a game for my grandson for his Birthday they had it at plenty of different merchandise and other things to buy

Ade Ogunshina: I personally I like this store, it has great customer service, and it allows you to pick up your games Early if you pre ordered it.

Nathan Foster: Excellent (and friendly) service and great prices; an overall great experience!

Leon Lewis: They always have just what you need.

Paul D: Great stock of games for Xbox and Playstation. Found the elite controller here! Great staff here too.

tony jay: I came to the store about three years ago And I had a $20 bill And the manager said it was fake And I call the police And the police say it was Real He was trying to steal my $20 That was my bad experience I never forget They should train they managers better than that

Ethan Shelton: Good games for cheap if you looking for some

Chris J: Very helpfully staff especially my good friend j they answer all of my questions when I am curious about something I recommend this place if you are trying to buy some video games

Aisha Martin: Unfortunately they did not have the games I was looking for,not their fault. The staff was very helpful.

Steve Shaw: Please Read All I got a used game and thought it was an amazing price ($1.00) and i paid for next day being really excited to play it having found it so cheap. Little did I know how cheap it was. The first time I installed it, it was working pretty well except for some noise ( ended up my ps4 broke ) when I got a new ps4 and had to reinstall it now it won't get past 24% and it will say it's complete anyway. There's no way I can fix it, I get the error code from playstation that it can't read the disc at times. Luckily it is only $1 but really upset that they gave me a broken game

Best Buy: what do users think?


Kiffa Shirley: Excellent service, clean store, full of big screen TVs ready for Christmas shoppers. If you’ve not been to the Columbia Heights Best Buy, is so convenient to the metro, and other shopping, and it put me in the Christmas Spirit.

Ricardo Matheus: So I walk in to shop for some apple products and I’m not sure if it is because of covid or what but there’s only like 2 people working there. I’m mostly disappointed in how no one tries to help. Not even to tell me to wait a sec because they are busy and they’ll be with me shortly. Just nothing. Not even sure they noticed I was there. Waited and walked around trying to get someone to get me the products I wanted to purchase but I mean, its 2022 I should have known better that service in the US is awful and should have just bought them online. I love Best Buy but definitely never buying anything in person again there. Shout out to the guy at the door, he was very friendly

Corey Moore: One of best best stocked, clean and friendly Best Buys in town! The people are helpful. The store is well stocked. The staff is very helpful. The online check-in for online orders & pickups, is awesome! They're really busy at times but the lines tend to always move at a pretty good place. Highly recommend this Best Buy location!

Lady Elexia: I love best buy as a rule, no matter where I find them. The columbia heights location is nice, but it is a bit on the small side. While I could find the basics, their selection of new items was a bit lack lusture. Customer service is always perfect, at least in my experiences.

Tig Vic: On 05/06/2022 around 2 pm, I countered a very rude, unprofessional, and clueless heavyset lady who calls herself a manager. I'm never going to spend my hard-earned money on this location or BestBuy in general.

Feseha Ayele: I went to the best buy store which is located at Colombia height to get the phone that I paid online. They told me that there is activation problem and I waited more than 2 hours without any solution even the store manager couldn't solve the problem. It was a good deal that they posted online. It's really disappointing not to get any solution or reasonable answer about my order. Which is $999 online with activation and they told me to pay $1799 in the store.

Alexis Smith: horrible customer service. I wandered around looking for an employee to ask for help and they all ignored me. Finally someone answered and she said she’d send someone to the home theater section to help me but of course, no one was there. The Best Buy in Tysons is so much accommodating and friendly. If you want a good experience, just avoid this place

Dawn Develin: Mack was amazing. He sat with me patiently and help me with my phone purchase. I very confused and not very savvy with technology and he treated me with respect and help me through every step without getting frustrated. Overall everybody at Best buy has been phenomenal but he went above and beyond.

John Newman: Nobody asked if I needed help. I finally left and ordered what I needed from Amazon. Horrible location. Thugs and hoodlums everywhere. The whole place reeks of pot smoke. Frightening place. There was a "security guard" (I use that term lightly) sitting on level 2 eating potato chips staring at his phone. I was afraid I would be mugged or shot at any time. Avoid at all costs.

Ramona Killings: Even though I have driven past this place numerous times, today was my very first visit. I think my excuse has always been the fact that it's located on the 2nd level inside of a building. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This place is humongous! I also picked up on the fact that there are a myriad of Associates on the floor, who seemed friendly and willing to help people. That hasn't always been my experience in the past at other locations. Perhaps the fact that I came here on a Sunday, and there were not that many shoppers inside. So I came for a cellphone, and a cellphone is what zi walked out with. I had been researching the Google 6 Pro that features an 8 megapixel camera. I bought it for right at $700.00 which I think was a decent price. I can't wait to start playing with it! Now that ai know that this place has so many more things to offer, I will have to come back here again to get more stuff!

Hunter-M eSports Pc Gaming (Internet Cafe, Lan Center): what do users think?


Cris Aguilar: Really enjoyed this gaming Café. Open 24 hours with plenty of snack/food/drink options to choose from! The front desk guy was extremely kind and helpful I really appreciated that. Prices aren’t bad either. Think of a game and they have it. Chairs, mics, controllers and PCs are well kept and just whole place aesthetically pleasing. Definitely will be coming back

Michele A.: Very cool here!! The last time I was here was probably 6 or 7 years ago when it had a different name but I now it’s completely different. It’s so much bigger, pcs are very nice. Lots of options for drinks and snacks at the front desk. At first I was like, why would I come here instead of staying home? But it was fun to bring my friends so we can game together

GTCabbagekcs: Easily the most well-kept, pristine LAN center I’ve been to on the East Coast. Great selection of drinks and snacks, friendly staff, clean stations, and open 24/7. I come here mainly for the fact that all of the computers not in use are constantly updating their games.

John Wolfe: One of the worst retail experiences of my life. Decided to give this place a chance with a couple friends to relive our LAN days. Paid for 2 hours, and after 45 minutes we finally got call of duty to open. After one game, myself and my friends all had our accounts shadow banned by Activision. The only way this would happen is due to exploits being used by this establishment. To date 3 days later my account remains banned on my home console and I'm still unable to play. 500 hours and hundreds of dollars down the drain due to this terrible establishment. Highly highly recommend you stay as far away from this place as possible. You WILL have your account banned. Worst part was even with our accounts being banned, and not playing a single complete game, the manager Nick wouldn't even consider a refund. Avoid this place at all costs. Would give 0/5 if possible. Edit: the manager has responded to my review. However I would like to let the business owner know that we did nothing bannable as we were unable to play even one game. Furthermore, he indicated our memberships were permanently banned. This is interesting as it was our first time at this establishment and we have no membership to begin with. I will edit this response if the business owner is able to remedy this situation that they have caused.
Response: Hello John, we were wondering if you still think that the issue happened due to exploits on our computers at our store. We already had several back-and-forth e-mails to talk about this issue. We found several factors for the shadowban, as shown below, after some research on our end. #1. Shadowbans happen specifically when a Call of Duty user who has an existing Activision account on a console plays those specific Call of Duty games via battle.net on PC. When a new battle.net account is created and linked with an existing Activision account for cross-progression, in almost every case the account is temporarily shadowbanned. #2. The closest we could find mentioning any issue Activision has with switching from console to PC was in the Activision License Agreement, however, it doesn’t explicitly state anything about shadow banning or transferring accounts. Their policy is to be as vague as possible when issuing shadow bans so they don’t have any liability when incorrectly shadowbanning. Please check the following agreement from the game company “You agree that you will not do, or allow, any of the following: (I) exploit the Program commercially; (2) subject to any system requirements, use the Program on more than one system at the same time. As our job is to provide powerful gaming PCs and secured network systems, all of our supported games' anti-cheating solutions are working with our systems without any issues. This means our network is clean and secure. Our game files cannot be accessed and are on a server, so every customer is playing the game from the same files. If there was an issue with our system, then all of our customers would have the same issue, including getting shadowbanned. We have many customers who play Warzone every day at our stores with no shadowbans being dealt. The issue you experienced, the shadowban, is neither related to our store nor you, but Activision and Battle.net policy. They must have sent a notice or warning while you were linking your accounts from Activision to Battle.net. Some may say that we need to let the customer know about the issue, but our answer is “how can we?”. There are thousands and thousands of games and software in the world, and they all have their agreements. People visit and install games, graphic software, CAD, Audio, and document editing software, and users, need to check software agreements and policies before proceeding to the next step, same thing you have your own risk when you visit the website on the public library computer. Because there are so many of these different policies and agreements, it is important to check them before agreeing with their terms. Users must be aware of this so they can safely navigate the internet. The reason we are writing this message is for the public. For people who may be interested in becoming our customers in the future, we want to clarify that we put our best efforts into having a clean network and fast stable systems. All staff does their best for our members, so we want our customers not to be confused that we have an unsecured network or unprofessional management. We fully understand how this issue made you struggle. We are sure that neither of us is to blame, but instead the game company. Activision seriously needs to re-think their shadowban policy, which is extremely impolite and doesn’t explicitly state the reason for the ban. p.s. The previous conversation was back up due to this writing space limitation.

Odessa Zhang: first time coming to an internet cafe, kind of nervous especially since i’m a girl but it was still a nice experience! Front desk employee was super knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Prices are kind of high if you’re not a member, but the membership deal is definitely worth it. Check it out!

SC: Always a fun time here. Staff are very friendly and the environment is relaxed and comfortable. Computers are fast and they have everything I need. Would def recommend.

Eric Harris: I have never been to a gaming cafe and did not know what to expect. I came here with my friends and was very surprised on how inexpensive it was to get 3.5 hours and how quickly it was to get 3 seats next to each other. The food I got was also excellent and connection was also very good. 1070 graphics and low ping. Stations also had full custom led lights which I am a huge fan of and they had good chairs as well which is nice for posture as well. My only complaint is that they seemed a bit understaffed but once I rang the bell at front desk someone was there in a jiffy.

Oliver Minall: Clean, up-to-date gaming center that operates 24/7/365. Staff are friendly and there are plenty of pre-installed games. They have snacks, burritos, and soups available if gaming after the surrounding restaurants close. I grabbed a membership and some hours for when traffic sucks and I want to relax somewhere fun.

imso smol: Open 24 hours, great game selection, staff is so friendly, snack bar always stocked and the bathrooms are always clean. Every gamers dream 🙏🏻😌💅🏻

Null “Null” Channel: The new location is pretty convenient and has a more futuristic look. Looks amazing and the PCs are fast. Kinda wish the lighting was a bit similar to the old location though. Only issue is when you walk in, you lose phone service almost immediately. This makes 2 factor logins pretty difficult. You have to walk a good distance from the building or walk into the restaurant next door and by that time, 5-10 minutes from your PC time is already wasted. This wouldn't really be a problem if we had the option to connect to Wi-Fi.

Clement: Very nice store. We found some cute gifts for a baby shower. The lady was super nice to wait for us before they closed.

Kumari Robinson: Great selection of toys and books for a wide age range of kids. Super cute store.

Pete Price: Really enjoyed the small, but curated selection of toys/activities/books ranging in all ages. Found the owner very helpful on picking out obscure games, but happily purchased because of their long standing popularity! Wonderful place to go.

Bette Maun: They have been at Eastern Market for a long time. A little expensive but worth the money. Most toys are handmade or come from Switzerland. Great puzzles to figure out. Lots of cute little book's and toys. It should be called the ( SHOP FOR CHILD WHO HAS EVERYTHING OR STORE FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE HIGH IQ'S.

Nessa Clarke: She loves collectible little Japanese charm toy keychains. She loves the quirky. The obscure. The modern. She would go crazy in this store - admiring all of the items - which so genius-ly fuse art, humor and play together.

JH Monsen: The proprietor is lovely and knows a lot about books. Although the shop is modest in size, I'll argue you're bound to find something for any age. A gem of a store!

isa: Very cute place! Good for finding books or toys. The woman is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Ella D: An amazing place. I've been going there since I was a little kid! The employees are so nice. However, I don't go there a lot because it's kind of expensive.

Andrew Pitts: What a great store with knowledgeable staff. Great books for any aged child!

Demisha Kerns: It has great educational books and some great toys as well.

Cola: Okay I want to say that I have had some great experiences at this place, however after reading some of the other reviews I feel compelled to share. Girls, ladies, please watch your back in this store. A while ago I decided to go into R&R to look around and a male employee started following me around the store. Weird, but okay. There was nobody else in store. I thought nothing of it when he started asking me about my band shirt. He played the "name-three-songs" shtick with me, but hey all self-righteous music nerds do that. Then he started asking me weird and personal questions. He asked for my age. I was a minor so I lied and gave him a fake age slightly younger than my own thinking he would drop the conversation if he knew I was young. Nope instead I got "Wow really? You don't even look it. You're so mature." Alarm bells started ringing in my head. He then proceeded to ask if I had a boyfriend. That is when I left the store. I have no idea if the man still works there or who he was, but this event is super unfortunate especially since there are some very helpful employees at R&R. I don't enter the store without a group anymore.

suzan Simon: Brought our DS in for repair. We got it back months later in parts. No phone call, no email and no updates. Apparently the tech quit and just left everything. The owner wasn’t able to speak to us in a civil manner. I asked him how much a working DS was and he blew up. Yelling at me and my son in front of my other kids and whatever customers happened to be standing there. He had to walk away to his corner and settle down. Another guy helped us, answered our questions, and sent us on our way with our bag of parts, returning our service fee. Terrible customer service from the owner. He obviously has people issues and might be the reason why his tech quit. Seems like other people have problems with that guy too. If you can’t handle customers in your store, maybe you should go to the back and let your other guy run the front. He’s obviously better at it. We won’t buy, sell, use, or trade in that store again. We will gladly take our money somewhere else.

Spencer Sullivan: Friendly and helpful cashier. I tested an N64 game in their in-house console to show me it worked before I bought it without being asked. Lots of cool, useful, vintage video game stuff. Definitely recommend.

Christi Larrew: Brings back great memories! Lots of the great music. You don't hear today. I would highly recommend this place! They even have old 45's.

Joe Pinder: I found this store today while visiting the mall. I did not catch the employee name who was on duty, but was very friendly and professional. I popped in to look around, seeing old records and arcade games. They had several records I was keeping an eye out for as a gift for my father. Was a very good experience. Nothing but good things to say about this place

Salvatore P Simonetta Jr: Establishment brings back a lot of memories of when I was spinning records a long time ago. Staff was very attentive and friendly! I look forward a return visit and purchasing items.

Abaddon Ambrosia: I couldn't get the guys name at the front counter but he was very sweet and helped us get the record we were looking for :D 10/10 would go again

Gabriel Varela: The store itself has great products, but the employee I dealt with was incredibly rude. I was so taken aback by his attitude that I changed my mind about buying the products I intended to, and don’t plan on ever coming back. Very disappointing since their business has awesome products, but I can’t support a company that treats customers like that.

Nicole Richardson: Great store with rare album. I had a great looking through the rare album, they reminded me of my family reunions.

Sean M: Not sue how this business is still open. Spoke to the owner about selling some video games. He claims he pays Half of retail prices (eBay sold listing. Pricecharting. Etc). After I dropped off well over $2000 worth of merchandise. I waited 3 hours for the owner and manager to offer me less then $500. I told them that it was absolutely ridiculous and I was going to take my business elsewhere the owner proceeds to tell me he’s gonna walk me out to my car in well doing so he’s arguing with me and trying to fight me the whole time. Estarland chantilly will treat you 10 times better than this joke of a company will steer clear it’s not worth it.

Mauricio Ayala: This is easily the most impressive retro game store I have ever been in. The selection is crazy, its just full to the brim with all sorts of games and other goodies. The staff are friendly and chatted with me as I gushed over everything in the store. I wish I had more disposable income to spend more time here!

Edward Williams: If you are looking for an in-person retro game store, there's really no other option in the area. for that reason alone I'd give 5 stars, but the environment and the people are actually all really cool too! you should really check it out if you like games!!!

Manil Trivedi: The staff is really friendly and awesome! I had questions about custom engraving and they were able to answer all of them. Ashley is the one in charge of the engraving, and she worked with me to find a good picture of the design I wanted. It ended up being exactly how I envisioned it and I could not be any happier! It’s definitely my go-to for anything games

Tony Ortega: the truth is true, I felt that I became a 12 year old again, it was so great to come to this store and see so many games of my time and see so many things from the past and present at the same time, I am 38 years old and I had a great time choosing so many things at such a good price and apart from this, the Customer Service by the staff was the best a family and cute atmosphere, Thank you for having such a great store !!!!

Sarah Ruehle: This place is fantastic and the customer service is amazing!! I’m so glad there are places like this that allow people to relive nostalgic video games. And beyond that, the people who work here are so nice. I ordered a game and the package was lost. I reached out and they were more than happy to provide a replacement or refund. I opted for replacement and they had it held to the side and waiting for me when I arrived! Really awesome people working a cool store. Will absolutely return for any retro video game needs!

T S: This is one of my favorite places to both trade in and purchase items from. Their trade in system is transparent, they respond very quickly and I have never had any problems with them. My only regret is that they have no added an extra zero to my trade in balance, because there is so much I want from their store.

Brendan: Don't come here if you like seeing the listed prices in-store. What I mean is, the store uses their website to list all of their prices for games/accessories, so you have to constantly look at your phone and check the price of each individual item. I wasn't aware of this before I visited, so I found the process to be awful and unintuitive especially because the store's website is clunky and slow. If you check the site before your visit, then this aspect probably wouldn't be inconvenient for you, but for me it completely took the fun out of browsing. I'm still giving it 3 stars because the store had a very good collection of games, but I would definitely never come back due to a lack of visible prices. It was just too annoying for me.
Response: Hello Brendan, thank you for your review - we value your feedback about how our showroom operates! We’re working hard to improve the responsiveness of our site and how it functions to make the process more seamless in the future. We’re always working to better ourselves, and this kind of information is a great help. We hope you’ll consider shopping with us in the future, thank you!

Christopher Baker: I ordered an X Box 360 game from them last week, I was very pleased with the delivery I received. It arrived on time and it was well packed. The game was in excellent and working condition as well. I will certainly do business with them again.

A: I turned in a PS2 for a repair, which was returned to me with the statement that I needed to clean it and that it should work. It did not and apparently was dying due to a board issue. I drove quite a distance to get there to be told my system was unrepairabe. It was nice they offered to reimburse me for the cost of diagnostic but I wish they would have conveyed that of the cleaning doesn't work my machine was a goner instead of driving all the way out for false hope. RIP PS2.

Deron H.: I will never do business with the company again. Before I saw and accepted offer how much the game. I call them to get advice on how the process works but I didn't the help I was asking. So these people who runs the shop has my game and won't give me my funds like they said. I have an account to see my info, tried to offer me store credit but I told them to not once but twice to funds to my PayPal account because I live in another state. That's what I get for being nice lol

Barstons Child's Play: what do users think?


Gia Bankanella: Excellent toy store! Filled with all the favorites for everyone. Mostly kids toys, but has some awesome Legos and games that are for good for adults too. We'll definitely be back soon!

M.E. Francis: Fantastic store! Came in here as a last resort thinking they probably wouldn't have any "serious" board games and was greatly surprised! Not only did they have a great selection of popular euro games, but the owner was incredibly helpful and detailed in her recommendations!

Nesa Amarlooi: This is one of the best toy stores in the area and I'm so happy I found it. They have a massive selection of really unique toys and carry a lot of the European brands my kids and I love and there doesn't seem to be a big markup at all. The lower level has an AWESOME book section with some truly beautiful books. I could spend hours in this store. If you need to find a unique, and thoughtful gift for a kid of any age, this is the place to go. The staff was very friendly and not pushy at all which was great. I'm also happy to see that they are enforcing the mask mandates which makes me feel much better about taking my kids here. So happy I don't have to go to Target for kid's stuff anymore! Will gladly continue to support this wonderful little local shop!

Sebastian Olmsted: While gift shopping for toys this Christmas, Child’s Play was a nearby convenient store with a good variety of toys and books for kids. It was obviously busy around the holidays and things were fairly disorganized. The workers I encountered were trying their hardest and were very helpful and kind, but I couldn’t help but feel that the management was completely off. Service was pretty bad simply because it seemed that workers had far too much on their hands, all the while their manager or boss was absolutely nowhere to be found. I had talked to one of the workers as well, who told me that they were completely overwhelmed. As someone who works for a small business, this management is terrible and the work environment for these employees seems unsupportive and generally chaotic.

Lil Waffle: I liked it a lot, however, workers were scattered across the store. It would be a lot easier if they just stayed put at the register.

Auggie Flentje: the staff here can help you find most any gift for any child. great selection of games and they seem to always have the hot items in stock. a great local toy store and broad selection of books. they wrap for you!

R: Nice toy store. The staff is friendly and help and the ship offers a wide selection of toys, books, stuffed animals, etc.

Michael Cieslak: This is a great place to buy toys for kids. The staff is very knowledgeable and you don't get service like this the mass toy stores, such as toys r us, which is why places like that one kind of business. We need more places like child's play.

David Feuer: The book selection is excellent. The toy selection is a bit more hit-or-miss. Some popular categories (like Lego) have good selections. Activity kits seemed fairly blah.

Ronald Huskey: Very knowledgable staff for kids toys and games. They will even wrap your gift for you at the store free of charge. We love going to this store for birthday gifts and Christmas gifts.

Games and Stuff: what do users think?


Valeria Contreras: Super fun and well stocked game store. I LOVE they have a minis painting station!! Literally you can buy your minis and paint right then and there and get to work as long as you have your (air)brush on you. Definitely highly recommended if you're in the area.

StepchildoftheSun: I love this place! Great atmosphere and the staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They host a VIP sale every weekend after Thanksgiving that's awesome and the goodie bag you get is fantastic- everything in this picture is from their RPG and Trading Card goodie bag and was totally free with the $75 ticket fee (which goes to the Maryland food bank!).

W. M.: Absolutely love coming in to see their vast selection of hands on games, ranging from table top, card, board and mystery games, etc. The prices have been pretty on par and competitive with what we have seen on Amazon and other retailers, the difference here is we have staff to consult and get insight on certain games. Some mass produced games can be cheaper by a few bucks at the major retailers but there is huge field of unique and rare games that Games and Stuff has that we haven't seen anywhere else. Always a unique gem to discover here. There is also a dedicated game room for regular game nights/events. A great place to get together with friends and pick up a great selection of games that will suit everyone's interests.

Kevin Chasse: Awesome selection of neat games and gaming supplies. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have no idea what to get, they can help you based on your likes and interests and you will most likely get a fun and unique game you would have never thought of before.

Cathy S: The staff is so knowledgeable and helpful. They have a huge play area, a great selection of games and accessories! I live 3 hours away! I will be making the trip again!

Enrique Caballero: Solid selection of games (including some deluxe limited Kickstarter stuff). Employees were generally nice, but they do seem to hover and stare; kind of like undercover security but being terrible at the undercover part. Shady parking lot in a shady shopping center. Still worth the visit though…if you can get over the other stuff.

Dan Cotrupe: A top notch store with staggering selection of all things tabletop and knowledgeable, friendly staff more than happy to help you get the gaming experience you are looking for. Count on Games and Stuff to have the latest and greatest in board games, ccgs, RPGs, and miniatures. It's also a great venue for competitive events, casual gaming, and social hobby time. All in a clean, well lit, friendly atmosphere with resplendent restrooms to boot. This is a store I make sure to stop by whenever I'm in town.

Alyssa M: Nice place, staff are helpful. I like that you get credits towards a future purchase if you do the $10 game play. Would recommend

Rehoboth Hines: This place is one of my favorite places to go for mtg cards and gaming. Staff is super nice and selection is great!

Vicki S.: Great games for everyone.They also have gaming events at store. Best selection of new and popular games. Also has a bargain used selection of games.
