Update for in-store gaming events

Hello Friends!
I know a lot of you are excited to return to Battlegrounds Gaming for events, and campaigns, and tournaments, and games! I am too! I miss the people and I miss seeing you have a great time here. I assure you that I plan to resume in-store events when it is feasible.

The reopening of the State of Connecticut should reach Phase 3 “around mid-July.” Rules are coming soon from the Governor and I’m keeping an eye out for them. You’ll be notified shortly after I have that information.

I want to say “Thank You!” to those of you who bought from Battlegrounds Gaming in the last 97 days. Thank you very much for your support. July 2020 marks our 9th anniversary and we’re going to make it to our 10th year because of you. Thank you for understanding how important it is to support small businesses.

So hang in there for just a few more weeks! Knocks wood. Be safe when enjoying the July 4th holiday next weekend.

Best wishes,
Steven Bryant

Core Set 2021 + Jumpstart preorders

Hey folks!
I’ve been doing my best to think of a way to run Pre-releases next weekend and still stay within the state guidelines regarding distancing, disinfecting, masks, etc. I want to be sure the next event we hold will be fun AND safe!
I look forward to when I’ll can safely resume in-store events. Thank you for continuing to support Battlegrounds Gaming by purchasing from us. We are open for merchandise sales including Magic Single cards sales through our web-site. I am also now buying Magic cards through that same platform (use the Buy Cart to sell to us).

Core Set 2021 boxes, bundles and collector boxes have been available for pre-order as well as Magic Jumpstart boxes. Today, I am adding the pre-release combos which include the kit and 2 prize booster packs. These will be available starting on June 26, 2020. 

Thanks again for understanding. Please stay tuned for further updates.

Preorder here.

We’re reopening May 20, 2020

Battlegrounds Gaming is happy to announce we will reopen to the public May 20 as part of the state’s reopening plan. You should know we will be following state and local authorities on what is allowed. Policies may change without notice. Here’s what we expect:

  • No events in the store. Sorry, no DnD, no Magic, no board games, no 40K, etc. until further notice. No, I do not know when these will return. Follow our social media to stay up to date. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Customers must wear a mask that covers both the mouth and nose.
  • Use sanitizing wipes when you enter – there will be a container on the gondola straight ahead as you enter.
  • Bathrooms are closed
  • Limit of 5 customers in the store – you may have to wait outside the door until someone leaves. The ramp is marked with white circles six feet apart.
  • We’d love to catch up with you, but please keep the “hanging out” to a minimum. There may be other people waiting to get in to spend some money. Thanks for understanding.
  • Curbside pickup is still available. Place orders online and call the store when you get here. Please understand it may be difficult for us to leave while customers in the store.
  • New store hours:
    M-F: noon – 8pm
    Sa-Su: 11am-6pm (unchanged)

Thanks for supporting our little game store! I hope to bring back events soon. Stay tuned.
