Magic is the largest collectible card game in the world! Build a unique deck from your collection and play online or in store! When the play space is open we run regular Standard, Pioneer, Modern, Pauper, Legacy, Commander, Draft, and sealed tournaments weekly.


Q: If I can't play in store how can I play?


A: https://www.cfbevents.com/magicfestonline Use our code PANDEMONIUMBOOKSANDGAMES and we'll receive a 10% kickback on all event purchases.

https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/FNM_at_Home Play Arena at home, send us a screenshot to our instagram @pandygamesma & we'll send you the week's code which awards you a premium card back each week.

Or you can play real paper magic cards with roommates, or online via webcam with friends! Consider doing a sealed tournament with an ikoria prerelease kit!


Q: What format should I play?


A: There are a few questions to ask:
1. What do my friends play?

Decks built based on different formats don't play well together, so figure out what rules your friends are following in terms of what cards are allowed and how many cards are in your deck.

2. For constructed decks choose 1V1 or group play?

The two best constructed formats for beginners are Standard and Commander. Standard is played 1V1 and is reasonably cheap to get into. The power-level tends to be lower since it only uses the most recent sets, so it makes it easier to play.
Commander can be played 1V1 but is often played as a group. It's really fun if you like deck-building as you can tweak your deck easily. Commander can be as competitive or casual as you like.

3. Limited tournaments - consider how much experience you have? Sealed tournaments let you build a deck from a set of booster packs for each tournament or league and are great if you're brand new. Draft tournaments require more experience as you build your deck out of a shared card pool by picking a card from a pack and passing the pack continuing until there are enough cards to build a deck for that tournament.

Feel free to chat with us about the various formats and our favourite cards, we're always happy to chat!

Roleplaying games require problem solving, negotiation, and creativity in order to create a compelling adventure where the story is much more important than the outcome.

Of the RPGs, D&D is the most popular RPG in the world, so it's the best place for most to dive into roleplaying games. All you need is a set of polyhedral dice and a group of two or more people and you can play. We recommend the Starter Set to get going, or play one of our very popular Beginner's D&D Games every Wednesday night.

We take pride in carrying a vast collection of fantastic games. Run a fast food stall for monsters in Grub Hub or build-out a map of a community surviving just before the world ends in the Quiet Year.

When the event space is open, we have monthly rotating RPG nights, recent ones include Dungeon Crawl Classics, Cats of Cthuhu, and City of Mist. We suggest purchasing a rulebook from us and calling up your friends on roll20 to run a game.

When the play space is open we love hosting game designers for board game demos. Come out and learn a new game for free!

Living card games are different from collectible card or deck games because the contents of each expansion pack are known. Then you can build your own decks to fit the format and your goals using those cards. L5R - Legend of the five rings is a complex game that is almost punishing with it's strategy.Arkham Horror - Themed on lovecraftian horror.
Game of Thrones - Play out scenarios in the game of thrones setting.Marvel Champions - Super-hero themed, this is the newest edition and has been a smash hit.

Tournaments and events are currenty cancelled due to Covid-19.

Yugioh is a collectible deckbuilding game based on the TV show. It features many different factions including dragons, ghost, and aquatic people. A starter deck will get you going, if you'd like to be  a bit more competitive try combining cards from multiple starter decks to improve consistency. We host Yugioh tournaments and free-play weekly when the playspace is open.

Tournaments and events are currenty cancelled due to Covid-19.

We love hosting the world's best Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror writers. Contact John at orders@pandemoniumbooks.com to inquire about hosting an author event when our event space reopens.
