My favorite shop in the area. Prices are cheaper than other stores for board games and accessories. Tons of space for gaming, lots of comics and they will happily order something that’s not in stock. The best added touch is beer on tap! I’m also a new MTG player and their MTG events are great for players both new and old. Looking forward to my next visit!

Wonderful place to purchase games. Well packed, promptly shipped, timely updates via email and always correct. They have reasonable prices and free shipping if you purchase over a certain amount. I adore this business and definitely shop here above even Amazon for my board games.

My girls enjoy going her to purchase their card games and their board games. They have a great selection that is hard to find anywhere else. If you can't find it on the shelf just tell the staff and they will order it for you or stock the shelf with it. They also have a nice selection of D&D stuff. There is huge area in the back for gamers to set up and play... no appointment need, just meet your friends there and hang out. They also have a bar where they serve drinks of all kinds. Come and join in on the fun or bring your own fun!

Great spot for comics, board games, and general geek paraphernalia. Highly knowledgeable staff and a friendly atmosphere. If they don't have it in stock, they'll order it for you at no charge and typically cheaper than you can find on your own. That said, their stock is extensive.

Very cool place to get comics and all kinds of merchandise from all your favorite SciFi shows and games and comics and they really just have a ton of stuff you have to check out. They can order it if they don't have it in stock. You can check their website as well. Also they have events there all the time. Also I have seen a snack bar with lots of drinks and snacks. Which comes in handy if you are going to be participating in a tournament or just thirsty while u shop. So go by there and have fun shopping and seeing all the awesome stuff they have.

Great selection of games at reasonable prices. They offer lots of opportunities for people to meet up and play games like mtg. If you're a miniature painter, you can find paints and miniatures here too!

Friendly staff with a great boardgame, table top game, and comic collection. Everything is at the best price in town and often significantly better than online. If they do not have something in stock, they are happy to order it. Events are run almost nightly, just check online for the most recent calendar updates.

Lots of merchandise of a great variety. Clean place and friendly helpful staff who were knowledgeable of products and games. Large spacious area for gameplay, and events. I highly recommend going here for figures and games and to hang out with friends. Might try to get some of my d&d group to go with me to an event sometime.

I’m not much of a board gamer but the few times I’ve been has been great. It’s always been with frequent players. Cheap snacks and drinks and great variety of games and comics. They also have a private room that’s great for parties and you can just leave a food/drink tab open.

Best Comic Book Sub Service Ever. Ive Been very pleased with the service and selection from Atomic Empire. They exceed expectations in both customer service and quality/condition of books received. The site is by far the easiest online comic book subscription to operate and understand. I can only imagine that the brick and mortar store operates under the same standards. 5 stars!

Always a smile, always a hello. Great people to talk to and a great place to meet your friends for a game night. Friendly culture and lots of help and advice. Best gaming store in the area.

I'm from Greensboro and I wish we had anything remotely close to Atomic Empire. The selection is incredible... They obviously have customer service down to the point. Friendly, knowledgeable, outstanding experience from out of town. I will be back!

Massive store. Half is set up with an awesome selection of merchandise, the back half is full of tables for group gaming. They also apparently host gaming events, which is very cool. I went there looking for a Pathfinder book I couldn't find elsewhere. The staff was extremely helpful in finding it for me, giving me pricing of stuff and even placing an item on hold. Even better, I bought the book I was after for cheaper than any of the online retail listings and like $5 cheaper than the market price on the back cover!! I definitely intend to return!

Ordered the ever-elusive set of Invincible Minimates from them last year. They came quickly and in mint condition. Will be trusting these guys with all of my collectibles needs from now on.

This store is great! It's got a great stock of something for everyone: comics, board games, card games, miniatures and painting supplies. There's also a huge area in the back for playing table top and board games. We'll definitely be back!
