Update: working on website to add curb-side delivery.

Battlegrounds Gaming has been closed since March 23, 2020. I’m currently working on adding my inventory to a web-site so customers can place orders and pick up items.

The basic website level offered my point-of-sale system allows only 250 items. I’ve requested a quote for the next level which allows for 5,000 items.
Some notes for what I’m doing to get products listed:

1. Pictures will be missing until I can get them added. Obviously, customers need to know what products look like before purchasing. Items such as play mats, miniatures, card sleeves, deck boxes, paint colors, etc. It’s going to be a while before I can add that to thousands of items.
2. Single cards for Magic the Gathering can still be ordered at http://battlegroundsct.ionsuite.com. Still no payment/shipping on that platform. I’m working on how payment will work with curb-side pickup.
3. Product description and details will be missing. Same issue as pictures. Size, shape, weight are all dimensions needed for shipping. I won’t be doing that for thousands of items, so for the most part shipping won’t be offered. I will do it on specific orders by request only.
4, Curb-side pick up will be offered on specific days AND by appointment. I’m still working on a schedule.

This isn’t the type of business I wanted to run when I opened the store. I prefer meeting all you great people face to face and the social interaction.

Thank you so much for your support and your continued efforts to support Battlegrounds Gaming during this crisis. Thank you also for your patience while I get this new service working.

The website is https://battlegrounds-gaming.shoplightspeed.com/. You’ll see only a few items. I’m testing to see how products appear there.

Covid 19 Virus update

Governor Lamont announced the closing of all non-essential retail businesses as of Monday, March 23 at 8pm. Battlegrounds gaming will be open regular hours this weekend 11am-6pm and Mon 11am-7pm.

After that, we’ll be closed until further notice.

Thanks for the support! Stay healthy.

Events Suspended

Due to the outbreak of COVID19 virus, we are suspending events for the time being.  I want to make sure my customers and staff avoid the possibility of getting sick.  Myself as well, as I would not want to pass it on to my elderly mother.

This was a tough decision and I feel it is the right one.

We will still be open for business but with shortened hours during the week:
Mon-Fri 11am – 7pm
Sat and Sun 11am – 6pm as usual.

Thanks for your support.  Stay tuned for updates.

Here are our scheduled events over the next few days and their status:

  • March 12 – Dungeons and Dragons – cancelled
  • March 13 – Mystery Booster Draft FNM – postponed
  • March 14 – Pokemon Challenge – postponed
  • March 14 – Magic Standard and Pioneer – cancelled
  • March 15 – Warhammer 40K – cancelled
