How to support your local game store during a Pandemic

Updated: Jul 12

Hello everyone,


We hope that you are all healthy and safe. As you probably know by now, the future of our store (and many others) is uncertain. As of 7/12 the shop is still open but the game room is not. We also have to require customers to wear masks and respect social distancing. It is very important to protect those who are at risk in our community and although we are having to adjust our business practices we support this decision.


If you have a medical condition that prevents you from being able to wear a mask, we offer phone orders, curbside delivery, and free home delivery to those in Anacortes and Mt Vernon.


So how is this going to affect our business going forward? In truth there is no telling what the future holds, but we are going to do our best to move things online as much as we can. We have always been a place to gather as a community, so we hope to continue that online during this time.


Here are a few ways you can support us from home:


1) Join our Discord Server. (Thanks for the help setting it up AJ)


We will be using this for events, but it is also just a great way for our community to stay connected.


We have "channels" for Dungeons & Dragons and other Tabletop RPG's, Magic The Gathering, Game Night (Board Games/Online Games), and Warhammer 40K. Be sure to introduce yourself when you join our server and if you have any questions feel free to ask. Here is the link to our server:

2) Play MTG Arena!


Wizards of the Coast is working on ways that they can help game stores, one of which is that they will be allowing us to organize events on MTG Arena soon. We have a few hoops to jump through first but hope to be running events as soon as next week.


In the meantime, you can support us by playing FNM this Friday through MTG Arena. If you play in their FNM event, all you have to do is post a screenshot to our Facebook Page with a nice message showing your support and we will private message you a promo code to redeem in game. If you do not have Facebook, send it via email to AwesomeSomething2015@gmail.com


Did you play in a previous MTG Arena FNM without knowing about this? Send us a message and we will give you a promo code if there is any left.


4) Pre-Order ALL THE THINGS!!


We accept pre-orders on upcoming products. If you don't see any info on a future product you're interested in yet, please reach out to us.


We accept payment via phone orders and our online shop. Be sure to order early to make sure you don't miss out!


We have some items available for sale in our online shop. In store pickup is available as long as it is safe to do so. We offer FREE DELIVERY to Anacortes and Mt Vernon/Burlington residents.


5) Watch Us on Twitch


We stream MTG Arena, Pokemon TCG Online, and Art Night on Twitch. Following us on there is a huge way to show your support! We posted a blog with a more detailed breakdown of our streaming schedule, but here's a link if you'd like to follow us:

7) Try not to worry! We'll always be there in spirit!


I'm known for saying "it's fine" or "this is fine" a lot when responding to stressful situations. It's basically my mantra. Right now is a crazy time. Hopefully everything will turn out fine, but regardless the most important thing right now is to keep your sanity (although hopefully we'll be helping with that)



Thank you so much for all of your continued support! If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us!
