Game Kastle (Santa Clara)
This is probably one of the better game stores in the Bay Area. They don't have all games, but they have quite a few, although only a limited number of each. They have a gaming room as well, but I'm not sure how often it is used nowadays, with the sars-cov-2 virus going around.

Holy cow this place has so many modeling supplies. I absolutely love their inventory. They also have a huge gaming space. The staff was very nice to me and we joked around a little bit. A great place for tabletop hobbyists and board gamers.

HALEY NEEDS A RAISE!! My son placed an order online and submitted before I was able to look it over, needless to say there were errors. I reached out to the phone number listed for online sales/orders and live chat with no repose. I took a chance and called the Santa Clara store and got Haley, she was AMAZING! In a time where we have employment shortages everywhere and people are fried! (especially in the retail workforce) Haley took the time to help with with my online order, and even called me back to let us know she got it fixed. If she is not a manager, make her one STAT!

This place is tabletop game madness! The staff here is friendly and super helpful with a plethora of knowledge that they’re willing to share about all of the games in the store. There are multiple areas to play in, some that are free and others that are available to reserve and rent. They have a schedule full of fun and interesting things to do in the store that is updated regularly. The facilities are kept clean and tidy, and the shelves stocked. If you’re looking to get miniatures for your game night or a gift for someone who likes boardgames, this is the place to go.

When they were first open. Nice friendly. Then more distant and pushier for certain games. Seems to go along with what Youtube promotes.

Fenomenal place! Dave, the owner, is one of the nicest people I've ever met. They have a large selection of games and host weekly gatherings for MTG. I’m sure they do other stuff as well. Everyone is extremely friendly and courteous. You definitely need to check this place out!

The single cleanest, most welcoming game store in all of Reno. Lots open play space, plenty of free events, and even during Pandemic shortages Dave will do his best to get you the supplies to game (Even if he ends up unable to find them). They have the best miniature paint selection out of any store in town, and a wide variety of supported products. Dave is a really cool guy with a down-to-earth but very professionao demeanor. His employees are also incredibly knowledgeable, and have helped me find several alternatives to paints and shades that are hard to get in this global shortage. The store is ALWAYs well-kept. No stacks of comic books strewn about tables. No piles of MTG cards all over the place. No piles of old promotional stuff or ancient unsold product in the corners. I really does stand out from any other single LGS in town.

When I tell you this place is a massive haven for tabletop enjoyers of all games and player types, I feel like.i'm underselling it. There's a ton of space for activities! The manager Dave is a sweetheart who really enjoys the store and all the hobbies. There's board games, several popular card games, miniatures and hobby paints, RPG books, and tons more! And did I mention all the space to play these games in? Do yourself a favor and stop by, say hello to the super friendly staff, and support this local business.

Friendly staff, and open later than most other games stores, so you can get games in after work if you want. Huge selection of boards games and a decent selection of miniatures as well. Would recommend checking out.

very corporate and unfriendly atmosphere. things are marked up like crazy such as a d&d book collection for 160 dollars over the usual 90 something dollars found online. card sleeves behind the counter are unmarked in price, but come to be significantly more expensive than you'd expect by the time you are rung up. as for the staff, they are clearly more worried about following the current mandate regarding masks than providing a welcoming experience. i have heard multiple people arrive at the store only to be instantly asked if they have a mask. no "hi, we have tables in the back if you want" or "hi, welcome to our store". nothing of the sort. these people had their walk-in experience make them feel like they've done something wrong and have been judged by the soulless workers there who most likely don't care if they sell anything, as long as their terrible tournaments are able to be run and the participants get advertisements fed to them during. tldr: unwelcoming staff who are disinterested in the customer or in providing a nice atmosphere. prices are ludicrous to the point of being insulting. got ripped off once, never buying a thing again.

I'm new to this kind of gaming and the staff here have been amazing in helping me ease into it. From recommendations, to help understanding Warhammer, they're amazing. Courteous and friendly at all times. The store is clean, and well organized. Excellent selection, despite it being a somewhat smaller store. There's also an awesome play area in the back, that one day I'll take advantage of. Overall, my favorite game store in Sacramento.

My husband and I stopped here last night around 7pm to pick up a copy of the “Age of Rebellion” rpg book since the Fremont store wasn’t carrying any. Very nice selection of Warhammer miniatures and dice as expected. Board games were definitely fun to browse thru. We’re hoping to pick up Monster Baby Rescue sometime since it reminded me of my husband’s dnd dream. Huge selection of miniatures— the hell hounds one caught my eye first. (There were three in the package too). Also, my husband noticed the plush d20s :). Overall, very nice Kastle of games.

New location. Not as big as the old mountain view store but still enough room to fit ample gaming tables and merchandise. Will definitely be coming here to get model paints.

Wonderful huge well lit gaming space for community gathering! Bring your own or borrow games. Tons of excellent merchandise for miniature painting and board games. Keep local stores alive, play and buy from where you live! And no I don't work for them :)

My first time there Tona showed me around, answered all my questions, and even made some really helpful suggestions about supplies I'd need. There's a lot of gaming tables with cool terrain that are free to use, and the store had a lot of products in stock that seem sold out everywhere else. Overall, I had a great first experience and will return.

Place was pretty sweet. The people there are nice and not pushy. They have new school and old school dragon shields. Singles and all kinds of other board games, 40k stuff, playing sections. Cool store.

Great staff. Answered all questions. Best part is the game room area where you can demo their stash of games. We tried out a few games with our 5 year old, seeing what she liked and could grasp. Will definitely go back.

Stopped in for the first time since moving to Fremont and I have to say I'm really impressed by the selection. I need to go back just to take it all in again. Lol as for the employee that was working... he was great. Very informative and super friendly. I can't wait to go back, much to the chagrin of my girlfriend. Lol

Very diverse selection of D&D, Warhammer and Star Wars legion items. They have a nice selection of paints. We had no problem with parking. I am a little disappointed that they don’t carry Gundam

Great place for picking up the latest expansion for your favorite board game or look for new ones. The staff is attentive and knows their stuff. Has some Magic but it is not their main focus. Has additional locations in Santa Clara and Mt View.
Christopher Lang — 9 months ago
Very helpful staff. Easy to find new highly rated games. Very roomy. During COVID-19 requires wearing a mask to enter and limited to 15 people in the store at a time. Parking is in back. The lot also has an entrance off Main which is off Union. During rush hour that driveway might be easier top enter than trying to make a left of Washington if you're coming from Fremont Blvd. Next door is at least one restaurant. Across the street from a Burger King and near Safeway.

By far the best game store I've ever been to! Great staff, great business model, huge selection of games, and filled with like minded people! Whenever I'm in town this is a must stop place! Also has free games to play and sample while you're there!

Top notch store with a great team of Kings of War players calling this place home! Also: "Masks do nothing except hold germs in them!" is an outright misrepresentation of the facts. That comment spreads misinformation. It should be removed as both irrelevant to the store's rating and vapid, rhetorical, and potentially harmful nonsense.

This store is practically in my backyard and I couldn't be happier. The store is sparkling clean and there is layout is really nice. Some crazy person even alphabetized all of the shelves (thank you) and the game selection is top-notch. There are tons of miniatures to browse and an impressive selection of paints. The dice display is brilliant and they even had the miniature-European sized card sleeves that I needed to get Spirit Island fully sleeved. There is a ton of gaming space featuring several different table styles and the layout is such that you can game comfortably distanced from other groups. If all this wasn't enough to convince you to shop here, the staff is super accommodating and chill. I'm excited to go back.

I stopped by last night during what was listed as regular store hours. I could see people gaming in the back but the door was locked. A guy came to door opened it and I got to ask if they were open and he said no locked door and drove away. There was no explanation. I would have liked the opportunity to have said I was in town only for the night and had come in from 4 hrs away but was not given the time. Didn't even tell me sorry were closed but feel free to come back tomorrow. I got no help or explanation

What a hidden gem! They have more supplies for minis than I have seen in any other store in Austin- bases, grasses, paints. Gorgeous selections of dice. An area where you can play games. And it feel very safe with current covid times- they have hand sanitizer to put on when you enter the store and even extra face masks if you don't have one with you for some reason. The person working today was very friendly and helpful too. I'm excited to paint minis there once it's a bit safer.
