The Realm opened in Nov 2003. A small game store carrying Games Workshop, Magic, Dungeons & Dragons, and a smattering of board games.
We quickly expanded into comics and became The Realm, Games & Comics. We added many more card games (most of which have come and gone), but many that have stayed like Legend of the Five Rings, World of Warcraft and Yugioh. Our boardgame selection has expanded to over 100 titles.
In 2005 we added Privateer Press to our selection and Warmachine and Hordes have been one our best sellers. In 2006 we added Flames of War WWII miniatures game.
In 2007, 4 years after opening, we moved to our second location just across the street from our old one. We doubled our space and added five war gaming tables with many more tables for card and board games.
In 2009 we moved once again to a 3rd location. We had to downsize a bit but kept plenty of gaming space and 1/3 of the store dedicated to comics. We added new miniatures games, Malifaux and Dystopian Wars. And brought in top of the line carrying cases by Battlefoam to carry all your wargames armies in. Comics have expanded with more trade paper backs and all new shelving displays, and a lots of excitement in the comics industry as both Marvel and DC re-launched their lines of comic books.
In 2012 we jumped into a larger space within the same shopping center, giving the gaming tables their own dedicated space and adding more tables, and vastly expanding the comics at the front of the store.
November 2013 we will celebrate our 10 year anniversary, and is looking to be one of the best years ever for comics and game fans everywhere.
