Hey Folks!

Saturday October 25th is the day for the return of an old favorite! Armored Gopher Games Used Game auction! Like in the past, this year's auction will be a live event, with your cool, used stuff being auctioned off by GopherDave (and some of the other 'Gopher regulars).

AGG will be taking in auction items during business hours from Monday, October 20th through Friday, October 24th. Each item or lot of items taken in for the auction must be accompanied by a filled out auction slip (see attached PDF) in order to be included in this event.

Items will be auctioned off in order of receipt. Any unsold items will be set aside until the end of the auction, at which point the items' owner will have the option of either taking back their unsold item(s), or selling them to Armored Gopher Games for the minimum bid in store credit. Armored Gopher Games reserves the right to refuse any item for any reason (condition, age, price, etc.).

Star Wars LCG Game Day - CANCELLED

GopherDave's picture

Hey, folks...

Just a note to let you know that the Star Wars LCG Game Day scheduled for September 27th is being cancelled. Turns out that GopherDave miscounted how many kits we had in the back, and he couldn't scare up another one from any other source.

Our apologies for that. We promise to do better next time... =) 

Gopher Radio

Okay Gophers, as some of you may know we have a new sound system in our store! We want your input, what would you like to hear on our gopher radio?

Hey, Folks...


Due to a changing local game climate, Armored Gopher Games is going through a period of re-organization and re-tooling.

Beginning tomorrow, Monday, April 7th, our store hours are changing (reverting, actually) from what they have been for the last 18 months or so, back to...

SUN: 12PM to 10PM
MON - FRI: 3PM to 11PM
SAT: 11AM to 11PM

These are the hours we had when we first moved to Northgate Plaza back in February of 2009. It took awhile, but we grew into the space, and the hours, and then outgrew the space.

With the larger space, it seems that we need to spend some time concentrating on growing into it like we did the previous space. Cutting back on our open hours will allow us to cut back on labor, do more cleaning with the labor we do have, and fold shipments and product into the sales floor faster and more efficiently.

As it goes, these changes should not affect our gaming and event schedule in the slightest.

We at Armored Gopher Games thank you for your understanding in this matter and appreciate your long and continued support.

You guys are the best!
