“What the HELL was that?”

Damon showed me all around Card Kingdom and I got to see a few behind the scenes places like the basement card archives. There are waaaaaay more boxes than what’s in the pic.

Watch some sweet Legacy action the Card Kingdom’s Twitch stream.

CardKingdom.com not only sells Magic singles, they also buy them. And in the Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House retail stores, there are tons of sweet table top games.

Give them a call if you and your group of friends wanna play games in their luxurious private rooms. Click on the links to see photos of the rooms.

Cafe Mox has the Red Room (where the podcast was recorded) and the Green Room.

Mox Boarding House has the Apothecary, the Library, and the Speakeasy.

I hope you enjoy the episode. It’s a rare look into how a physical space can impact local community of gamers.
