Board Games / Tabletop Games
One phrase we hear all the time from first time customers is “I never knew so many games existed!”, and it’s usually because of our board game wall. Gryfalia’s is home to central Illinois’ largest board game selection – we have everything from the classics of Monopoly, Scrabble, and Clue, to some of the best selling and award winning board games like Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, Ticket to Ride, and Splendor. We have cooperative games, family games, train games, sci-fi games, puzzle games, and so many more.
Every Wednesday night is open board game night, where you can come, make new friends, or bring your own friends, and play a game. Bring one of yours, or grab one out of our huge game library and give it a spin! If you’re worried about the rules, try out one of our Tabletop 101 Mondays where we teach you to play some of our favorite games!
