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

Why You Should Encourage Your Child's Love of Graphic Novels

We can special order just about anything for the holidays.

I know Link has been all about Captain Underpants and Dog-man. They have been reading chapter books since mid kindergarten, but still falls back to these for a laugh. The books are fast paced abd don't make the kid feel like they are forced into reading something boring. The other thing to keep in mind, the pictures don't take away from "30 minutes of reading". They are only an 'issue' is page numbers are counted.

parents.com Are graphic novels really hurting children's reading skills? And should kids just stick to the classics? Experts explain why it's time we end the graphic novel stigma for good.

Newest project in the works. 60 card pokemon deckboxes with pokemon inlays.

[12/01/19]   Testing the waters, If we were to run a dice making class over winter break, would there be any interest? There would a charge because materials are a thing, but you would be taught how to cast, sand, and finish dice. it would likely have to be a multiple class option because the resin dies need to cure over night. This would have to be slightly older folks, focused on middleschool and teens as tools are involved, and the first class would be 20 sided dice.


I could also run this as an adult program at night, maybe a week apart on a Tuesday

New pathfinder game Sundays, starting at 330, looking for players!

Campaign takes place in a post war open world setting. Epic fantasy with light steampunk elements. Emphasis on exploration, player choice, puzzle solving and survival.

(Heavily inspired by Breath of the Wild.)

The greatest nation the world had ever known has been laid to waste after a one hundred years of disease, famine and war. All that remains of the glorious kingdom is a lawless wilderness overrun with bandits, monsters and worse. A deceptively beautiful but dangerous wasteland.

Players take on the role of the last living scion of the old kingdom and their closest and most capable allies. Delving the ancient foundations of the realm to unearth the artifacts that will illuminate the way forward toward restoring the nation to its former glory.

Pm if you're interested!

Join us Sunday, starting at 2 pm for Brawl

We will be firing $10 constructed games all evening.

Brawl Weekend (Throne of Eldrain's Magic Weekend) will feature specially designed Brawl Decks—60-card ready-to-play decks, all Standard-legal, and designed specifically for the Brawl format. There are four decks available, and each has seven Standard-legal cards not available in Throne of Eldraine booster packs.

Since it’s a newer format, here’s a quick rundown on how Brawl works.

Brawl—the Short Version:

60-card decks
All cards must be Standard-legal
No more than 1 of a given card (except basic land)
1 "commander"—a legendary creature or planeswalker that begins in the command zone and returns to it any time it leaves the battlefield
Any mana symbol that appears on a given card must also appear on your commander
Players start with 30 life
Best played in groups of 3–5 players

We will be firing off Pods all day long and will have promos that will be given away throughout the day.
