My go-to spot for anything MTG related. I go so often that I’m sure the employees know my email by heart. Great selection of cards and the website is amazing. Although, one thing I would change about their website is adding a payment option or two. One for cash or “pay at counter” option, so that way anyone wanting to split the order with cash and card, or however they so choose.

I haven't been in the store but I ordered games from their website. I wanted to leave a comment as the customer service was EXCELLENT. My order included a game that was on pre-order and I realized that was delaying my shipment (they ship all games together). I reached out to separate the shipment and they quickly made the adjustment. I got my two other games just a few days later! I'll definitely shop from here again.

Atomic Empire is an amazing store and a great place to hang out. Many items are discounted from MSRP. They have tons of space in the back for gaming and plenty of games/mats/terrains available for use in-store. There are several active leagues and they hold regular events for various games. If you want comics, board games, tabletop games, or to find a gaming group, you will not be disappointed with Atomic Empire.

I stumbled across the website when looking for a specific board game for Christmas, but was delighted by the selection of games and graphic novels! It was easy to find what I was looking for and even some perfect items I didn’t know existed before. I’m excited to give my items as gifts - everything looks great and arrived really fast. I’m so delighted to have found a shop like this to support - even if I don’t live nearby. Thanks guys!

Awesome place for board games! Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Half of the store is set up with long tables for games and they have beer/soft drinks and snacks available. Highly recommend this place!

I visited to see the flea market with many people selling their old games. A nice service and source of customers. They have a broad range of games for sale - the flea market and the store. I prefer more concentration on games considered Euro games or strategy games.

Excellent comic book and board game store. If it's in print they probably have it. Also hosts events and has miniature terrain. Great place to order things on their website and pickup without having to deal with shipping.

This place is great. It's huge with much variety. You can go in back & find some game you want to try & then sit with your peeps & try it out. Very accommodating & Abt 20 percent cheaper.

Best selection in town for board games, miniature games, and war gaming. Comics, beer, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Collectables and random things you've never seen. Love this shop. Large enough to hold full 40k tournaments and a great hangout close to plenty of restaurants. Very highly recommended for anyone looking for a game shop and comic shop.

A great place to buy or play games. They have a full selection of board games, TCG's, miniatures, comic books, and nerdy memorabilia. An inclusive place to play cards, sit down with some friends and beers to D&D, compete in a tournament, or just build a collection. I highly recommend Atomic Empire.

Atomic empire is the best game store in the area. It's got plenty of tables and lots of space for hanging out. They are pretry good about having customers wear masks and stuff but it's not required. I have spent a good deal of money here buying magic cards and things but they also have a good selection of comics and board games and various other things. Definantly check it out.
