Waterloo Games is a small, locally run shop dedicated to meeting your gaming needs. Being a small shop, we have the luxury of getting to know our customers as friends, and always treat everyone with respect. As our name would imply, Waterloo Games is focused on historical gaming from all periods, but we absolutely welcome, play, and carry other genres such as sci-fi, fantasy, and the like.
We have several tables and terrain to fill them at your disposal, which you are welcome to use in our shop at no cost. If a table is open, you are welcome to it. If you’d like to call ahead to make sure a table is free or reserve one, just visit our Contact Us page to reach out.
While in our shop, we want you to enjoy yourself, and we ask that you treat everyone with respect, be mindful of people’s gaming time and don’t interrupt game-play. For some folks, their time in the shop is the only bit of gaming they can get in and it’s very important to them. Finally, we ask that there be no game or army shaming. We all choose games and armies because they speak to us in some manner and we put time and effort into them to build and paint. The last thing anyone wants to hear is, ‘ugh! You play that game?!’
We are a small shop, run by gamers, for gamers, and everyone involved has a full-time job. We will do our best to return calls, emails, chats, etc. as quickly as possible. If we are a little slow on the response, please know we will follow-up as quickly as possible.
