What makes this store awesome?
Marc Gacy says

Incredibly friendly staff. Open to supporting my Minis Agnostic Game Night. Three big wargaming tables and a number of regular long card tables. Very well-lit. Easy Parking. Just off a main road.

Heart of Gold Games has minis wargames as their main product inventory, and also carries Eurogames, big-box “ameritrash” games, tabletop RPGs, CCGs, non-wargame minis (fantasy and/or space), minis accessories (terrain, paint, etc), general game accessories (dice, game mats, markers, etc). And on the shelves, it’s a mix of both new & used games
For in-store gaming, you’ve got a handful of tables (see below!)
Snacks for sale? Yes!


Take a look at the store!
