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

I know this isn't really shop related, but those of you who were shop regulars know Link, he just turned 8 yesterday and is struggling with quarantine.

The town is doing a little birthday parade for Link today in Maynard. If anyone wants to join the drive by, we're meeting at the paper store parking lot at 545. Everyone is staying in their cars, we are keeping this social distance safe.

[04/25/20]   If you need masks, or know a center that does, poke us. We are still churning them out everyday. We now have 4 sizes, including a MUCH larger large they should cover most bigger faces. Plus you can order spare filters. We can ship or you can pick up at Excelsior within a few days.
No payment is expected. Donations just help us keep going and getting masks where they need to be!

For those in need of masks

Hey guys. Things are scary for a lot of us. There is a lot of uncertainty right now. Let me help you, and let me help out HCPs in need while we drag through this surge.
we have masks ready to go. I have tons moving to large facilities this week, but I want to make them available to you all too. I know many of us are still working, or need to go to doctors, food shopping, the pharmacy, and getting exposed. No mask is perfect, but we have been busting butt to make these as safe as we can, and have worked with a number of hospitals to test them .
Please be smart. Wash your hands. Distance when you can. Don't lick doorknobs. Use your brain. Fact check the most recent, approved sources. BE A GOOD HUMAN! And don't be afraid to ask for help.
feel free to share this anywhere, we are trying to continue helping as long as its needed.

Testing Multi Stream

With schools closing, lots of kids have been stuck at home, driving parents insane. So we are here to help. I know some of you are missing out on pokemon night, so we have figured out how we can all play together, safely, from home.

Your going to need a few things, but I will be playing games with anyone who wants to on pokemon the trading card game Online.

First, your going to need the Pokemon TCGO app, available Here: https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/play-online/

Second thing your going to need is a chat app called Discord. Available HERE:
https://discord.gg/xDcx9bx

That will bring you right to our discord server, and we can start setting up games from there.

Alright!
We keep getting calls about cooped up kids, as we have a 7 year old, we get it. So, we had an idea. We are still at Excelsior every day but aren't opening to customers coming in because of the nature of our business. We don't think its a good way to flatten the curve. BUT, what we can do, is door drops. You come by the store and pick up your order that you've paid for via venmo, paypal, or card by phone. We will pack it up for you and then unlock the door to hand if off once you get here!

You can also still order our $5 and $20 grab box products

It isn't perfect, but it is a place to start. We are getting things going tonight with Pokemon.

We are also looking at ways to play Pokemon with the kids online through all of this. as soon as Bobby has a battle plan, he is going to be in touch. If you have code cards, now is the time to use them! Keep an eye out on here and Discord for Professor Bobby to share his idea!

We will be adding more to our window shop throughout the week, MTG, Dungeons and Dragons, and the like. If you want ANYTHING excelsior normally carries, we can help you out this same way, just drop us a call or text at 508-808-9124

[03/17/20]   Alright folks, to help combat the boredom i'm sure where all going to be subjected to in the coming weeks. We have been working on some activities that people can do together, while staying at home.

Something we have come up with is online sealed deck tournaments with real card pools, generated by actual packs, that we can send to you, or hold for in store pick up when the world starts spinning again.

These games will take place on the online platform called cockatrice. Now, it does have a bit of a learning curve, so we suggest players download the program and start practicing now. We will be holding a sealed event this friday (interest willing) and it would be beneficial to all involved if players knew how to use the program already. I will be linking videos and typing up a cheat sheet of cockatrice commands for people to reference, but the best thing you can do is practice.

You can build your own decks there too. Thursday night Magic can be done using our discord server, and cockatrice, to still get those games in. take some time, build your decks, and don't go stir crazy.

If you have any questions, please let us know and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we can!
