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.

This is the best game store in the Triangle. Their selection of MTG cards is really great and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I love it there.

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.

Excellent store that I make sure to swing by every time in in the area. Or close enough to justify sneaking out.

Amazing store. Very accommodating to customers that are not local to the area. I have never had a bad experience in the 4+ years I have come here.

Atomic is really great for a few reasons: the space, the products available, and (most importantly) the employees. The folks I know who work here are great people who really care about what the place should be about - gaming and camaraderie. If you haven't been in before, you should check it out.

I live in Denver Colorado and of course we have many good stores here but none have a website as nice as yours. My subscriptions are easy to add or remove. I always get what I requested in the exact time they say I will receive them, if not earlier. They are always well packaged and taken care of. I have thought of going local many times but the convenience of the website and the continued great service always keeps me coming back!!!

A fantastic game shop! They have an amazing selection and clearly a passionate gaming community if you are looking to get into that. If not, you’ll still feel very welcomed with a staff willing to help you find great games.

I live in a small town in Texas, therefore I couldn’t find the one item I was looking for ANYWHERE. Not even nearby towns. I stumbled across this company, and they fulfilled my wishes! My purchase got to me quickly and it was well taken care of. Will be purchasing from here again! I’m extremely happy with my experience with this company!
