We are open all summer with great events and product sales, but GMG is closing soon.

To all of our incredible and loyal customers, tournament organizers, DMs, and our amazing employees,

The owners of Game Master Games want to say “Thank you” to everyone we have met and enjoyed a conversation with, who participated in a game or tournament at the store, patronized our location, or visited us at events over the past 5 years.

This has been an amazing journey of hard work, but also lots of fun with great people. Our main goal was to provide a place where a fun and friendly community of people could gather and share in a common interest. Along the way we made many new friends, shared great ideas, and ran thousands of games and tournaments.

We have had great success in so many ways and we are amazingly proud of what we have accomplished.

At the end of August our lease is up which has forced us to look ahead and make some difficult business decisions, and at this time we have decided to close the store for various reasons. This decision was not easy for us because we love what we do, and we will miss the wonderful community of gamers who enjoy our store.

We will still be open all summer long with our regularly scheduled events, awesome product sales, and several ‘Special Events’!!! Don’t miss out on the fun still to come over the coming months.  

Our last day of regular business will be Sunday, July 30th, but we will continue to be open all of August for great sales that you will not want to miss. Make sure you check out the events until then, and watch for announcements on great game sales soon.  We will be selling other inventory, furnishings, and fixtures, so contact us if interested.

We also want to thank our amazing staff, who we will miss the most. Their hard work and dedication has made everything possible, and we could not have achieved what we did without them as part of our team. Please make sure to stop in and thank them.

Stay tuned for more news coming from our Game Master Team: Conventions, YouTube Channel, Gaming Events, and much more… 

We cannot even begin to express how deeply we appreciate your support and business and the friendships you have shared with us over the years.  You are all awesome!

There is more to come in the future, so see you soon! 

–         Game Master Dave

Yugioh Sneak Peek Details

Good day Yugioh players,
There has been a change at Konami with how Yugioh Sneak Peeks happen.
Here is what is going to be the deal, going forward:
$20 Entry into a Constructed Tournament (Note: Not Sealed)
Each player is handed at the start of the Tournament, 5 Booster Packs of the Sneak Peek set, one promo card, which they can use in their decks, and one set list.
Players can crack their packs and add them to their Constructed Decks or choose not too.
You will have 20 minutes to change your constructed decks, before the event starts.
Please note the following:
– This is not a ‘sanctioned’ tournament, so the standings will not be reported.
– A Sneak Peek play mat will go to first place, with the other ones randomly given out or rolled off for.
– There is no Astral Pack for this event.
– However, 1 booster pack will go into the prize pool for every two participants, rounded up, and give out to approximately the top 25% of players.
– Maximum number of players for Sneak Peek is 32 players.
In addition, after the completion of the tournament, or after they drop from the event, players are encouraged to make a 20 card deck with the Sneak Peek cards only and play casually with other players in the store.
Call with any other questions and have a great Sneak Peek!

See you soon!
