Casual Magic

Excelsior Comics and Games

The prized gem in our gaming crown this is the event we have been running since the very start. Free for all ages, all levels of play. Oh, did I mention we are the store in Massachusetts that runs a truly casual, free event. Don't have cards, no worries, we have loaner decks on site, plenty to share, plenty to buy, and the ability to build you a custom deck from a collection of cards on site.

For the parents, you don't have to hang out all night and watch the kids play. We have plenty of adults on site and all we ask for is a way to contact you in case of emergency.

Come hang out, play a few games of EDH, maybe Modern or even Standard, and lets not forget about hoard. Anything and everything is welcome, except for Limited Resources.....

Shall We Play A Game?

Excelsior Comics and Games

Free for All Board Game Day: noon-6pm Excelsior is committed to creating an inviting, family friendly, and game oriented atmosphere while promoting social interaction among people with the intention of bringing them together using games as a foundation of fun."

When customers walk through the doors of Excelsior they will be greeted with a question. Shall We Play a Game? This greeting is intended to politely challenge our customers to partake in one of the many games we sell. In accepting that challenge, we feel, our customers are allowing themselves to be exposed to the fun filled world of games as well as engage in social interaction with one of our highly skilled Gamemasters. Games are created for many reasons. Escapism through fun with others being one of the many.

Fun is the foundation of games. Games offer many things to many people. Escape, experience, relaxation, and social bonding. Being able to balance the stresses of life with the fun of games allows for an overall increase in the quality of life.

Social interaction is in the nature of humankind. For thousand of years people have been asking each other "Shall We Play a Game?" and we gladly continue this social tradition at Excelsior Gaming Lounge. Every Sunday we open our doors and Lounge to the community to join us in some of our favorites and to show off their own!
