How many of you would buy an automatic sleeving machine?
We have had some inquiries about whether we are still enforcing the wearing of masks in the store. Yes, we are. Masks are still required by public health order. Further, Valhalla's Gate will continue to require that all customers and staff wear masks until such time as the CDC guidelines for our staff safety are updated. At this time, that means everyone in the store (adults AND children) must wear masks and we will continue to provide the reasonable accommodations of curbside pickup, home delivery, or shipping for anyone that can not, or does not want, to wear a mask. We appreciate all the community support as we do our best to keep our staff and customers safe. Every day the numbers look better and the percentage vaccinated goes up. We look forward to the time we will be able to play games at our tables and see your smiling faces again. But we are not there yet. Recycled photo from last summer.
Last week for Girl Scout cookies. Need any cookies? Get them before they're gone. FYI, this is the last year for the Smores cookies.
Guess how one of the staff spent part of her Spring Break? Now we are another step closer to finishing cleaning up the game areas.
New Product! We just got in a small shipment of these copper-clad, hand-inked d2s. Each precisely cast die is embossed by its manufacture date and is insured against the US gold treasury. Only $1 each! Hurry in as we expect to be sold out for good by tomorrow. Thanks to Quarterstaff Games for the product recommendation.
Bunny Kingdoms from Iello is the perfect game to welcome spring or fill an Easter basket. Play as Rabbit Lords conquering a new world on behalf of the Bunny King. Take control of vast Territories across the New World, build Cities, and farm Resources to make your Fiefs prosper, and harvest precious Golden Carrots. Don't forget to satisfy the King by accomplishing missions on behalf of his Majesty. Each choice can bring you closer to victory, but only one of you will be named "Big Ears" by the Bunny King...
The crew at Valhalla's Gate were honored to be included in the Game and Manufacturing Association's Retailer of the Year 2021 awards. This year GAMA recognized the member retail stores that successfully rose to the challenges presented by 2020 and Covid-19. Several Missouri stores are on this list. We are pleased to be one of them.

Here's a sneak peek at the newly arranged Event Center. We have reconfigured the tables and our general seating plan to allow for more social distance. We also think this arrangement will provide more space for people to move around without invading another's bubble. We made great progress today but there is still more work to be done. However, the construction grunge is cleaned up. The storage items mostly have been dealt with. It's hard to believe that this is the first time in almost a year that chairs have been at some of the tables and someone could sit and use a table.
UPDATE: Art has home. Art Needs a New Home -- We were given two of these amazing art pieces. One is installed in the front window. Unfortunately, after we rearranged tables in the Event Center, this piece no longer fits. Anyone need an amazing display piece? It is BIG.
