Overview
More
Board games, card games, outdoor activities, playing cards, chess and backgammon, roleplaying games, jigsaw puzzles, miniatures, plush toys, science, engineering & craft kits. Games of Berkeley opened on June 1, 1980, established by and for the growing community of people who enjoyed games and puzzles of all kinds. In particular, the store served the then-exponential growth of roleplaying games (RPGs). The store has moved three times over the years, each time into larger spaces with an even greater selection of games, puzzles and toys of nearly every type (with the exception of electronic games).

This is the best games store I've been to in the USA, with a fantastic range of games from role-playing to strategy, table-top, miniatures, cards, and even more active games (they have a huge selection of frisbees, for instance). There are funny knick-knacks there too,...More

Name says it all. Chess, tabletop games, RPGs...I only had a few minutes to look around as I was meeting people, but I could have spent a few hours there.

Best collection of games and puzzles in the bay area! we spent over an hour picking a jigsaw puzzle. Not a toy store, but truly a game store. They also sponsor game nights.
