Carolina Tabletop Games
This is a fantastic place to find unique games, card games, and tabletop gaming gear. They provide both standing and sitting tables that allow for patrons to coordinate and play tabletop games. They allow food and beverages to be brought in to consume. They also offer a few alcoholic beverages on tap, along with non-alcoholic beverages from a cooler behind the counter. The prices are fair and it is a good, local business that you should be proud to supoort. They offer a discord channel to help people connect with other gamers to game with. The staff is always friendly, kind, and willing to share any information they have about any of the games they have or know about. They help you connect with artists in the community or businesses you might be looking for. If you have a specific game purchase request, they will order it for you if they have access to it and they provide updates to you by phone calls to let you know the progress. My one truly critical observation is that there is an extremely pungent and sharp odor similar to a men's locker room that is difficult to ignore. The odor hits you immediately upon opening the doors and it is very powerful. If you are sensitive to strong odors, this may be something to consider. This can be controlled by shampooing the carpets regularly or even removing the carpets that trap most of that odor and simply allowing the concrete to be on the floor.
It's not bad! They have good stuff there from a board game perspective. Lots of space to play games whether it's Pokemon, MTG, or even Warhammer. Staff is friendly. I think cleanliness could just use a tad bit of adjustment. I noticed a cat roaming around when I went in there once, and the smell was pretty strong. However, I don't want it to seem like I disliked the place. Going in there to grab paints, pick up some cards, or just browse was totally fine :)
Great place for tabletop game enthusiasts. The owner is very friendly, helpful, and engaging. Clean, great atmosphere. They carry a broad selection of inventory. I stop by just to check out the inventory sometimes, otherwise to pick up miniature paints and games. Excited to spend more time here.
I always look forward to Monday Night Magic. This store has a great staff and a caring owner. The store is clean, offers a huge selection of games to buy or rent, and provides a friendly atmosphere for all age groups. They have been very open to customer feedback and continue to evolve in to a better and better store. Likely the most active spot in downtown pineville on Monday, Friday, and Saturdays.
Walking in might make you think you landed in Land of the Nerds but they have a great array of board games. New and used! People tend to keep to themselves in little groups and I can understand why now. Once you're immersed in the throes of a game, it's hard to be distracted by anything external. Worth checking out if you're a board game enthusiast!
