Excelsior Comics and Games

Bringing Comic and Game lovers together in one place to share their passion with us and together!

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

AVENGERS 4 ENDGAME: Trailer 2 (2019)

It's here!

The New Trailer for AVENGERS 4 ENDGAME!

We have had so very much going on as of late.

Not the least of which has been Bobby working on custom dice towers and boxes in house. Here is just one example that went off to its home this week, made especially for one of our dungeon masters, JP! This tower is complete with his 'Title', personal logo, his DCI number (for player ease at conventions), the Excelsior phoenix, The logo for The Role Initiative, and a few other personal flourishes. The box is magnetized and folds up neatly for simpler storage and mobility and the small dice vault holds a full polyhedral set!

The cold weather has lead to requests of warmer Excelsior swag. All funds raised from this campaign will be going towards the community center's role playing community to help with the purchase of books, mats, minis, pawns, markers and gear for public use plus CORI checks for any of our Dungeon Masters!

With Ravnica Allegiance Prerelease this weekend (1/19-1/20), we've been thinking a lot about our guilds. Like, a lot a lot. So much that we started thinking about what guilds our pets belong in.

That led us to partnering with Seattle Humane to sort some of their cats into guilds with our panel of expert wizards. These are the Cats of Ravnica. And we're showcasing more Cats of Ravnica every day on Twitter and Facebook starting tomorrow 1/15!

A special thanks to our friends at Seattle Humane. Visit SeattleHumane.org or your local animal facility to find your next animal companion!
