Welcome to Bloomington-Normal’s premiere game store! We’re proud to be your gaming experts. Our friendly and helpful staff are all gamers themselves, and bring that passion with them. We will help you find the game you’re looking for, even when you don’t know what game that is!

We carry a huge selection of all types of games:

Collectible Card Games

Gryfalia’s is home to some of Bloomington-Normal’s favorite Collectible Card Games.  We love Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Cardfight: Vangard, Weiss Swartz, Pokemon, and My Little Pony.  We also have a full line of sleeves, deckboxes, playmats, and other card accessories to protect your hobby.

Check our Events Calendar for our nightly tournaments (We play Magic every day we’re open!) , and don’t forget to ask us about our Magic League!

Miniatures

Build your army, paint them, and march them to battle! We have very dedicated followings for HeroClix, Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy, Malifaux, and War Machine.  Weekly events and bigger special events are all played on our tournament legal tables, and we carry a full line of paints and tools for your favorite modeling hobby!

Roleplaying Games

Have you ever wanted to be a wizard, a druid, or an archer?  How about a space cowboy meaning to misbehave?  Jedi Knight?  Time Lord?   Or do you just want to play the fighter character?  Gryfalia’s has a full line of roleplaying systems in stock for you, including the new 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, the Pathfinder Adventure System, Star Wars Age of Rebellions, the Doctor Who RPG, or the Firefly RPG.  Everything you need to bring your friends together and create new worlds of adventure.  And dice!  We have so many dice for you to choose from!

Check our Events Calendar for our weekly D&D Encounters sessions, or our monthly Pathfinder Society and D&D Expeditions schedules!  Maybe you have your own group and just need a table to play on?  Give us a call and we’ll help you reserve space for your group!

Party Games

How do you get a group of people to put away their phones and spend time having fun with each other?  Party Games!  You want them, and we have them.  Concept won 2nd place in the 2014 Game of the Year Awards, and we have that and so many more!  Cranium, Cards Against Humanity, Werewolf, Wits & Wagers, Scattegories, Superfight, Resistance – come tell us about your group and we’ll help you find the perfect game!

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!
