Game Kastle Santa Clara Reviews

This is a long overdue review. This place is fantastic for D&D gatherings and other gatherings for games. Our D&D group typically meets up there once a week and I cannot stress enough how helpful the staff are there. They want you to be happy and they make sure you're situated happily by helping you setup tables and chairs and ensuring you enjoy your stay. They have a small snack section with most snacks being $1 or $2 for drinks, it really is fantastic pricing when you're living in their for hours. And a good wide selection. As for actual items in the store, we ended up all getting our figures there. And if you want something in particular, just ask them and they can order it for you free and you can come pick it up and pay when it's in. They have a HUGE selection of games, rpgs, board games, the whole lot. They also have games on site that you can play with your friends if you just ask them. So yeah, I'd say this is the best place to nerd out. Friendly staff and fantastic accommodations!

A very well stocked game store, offering a variety items for many game systems both common and esoteric. The staff was very helpful and friendly. This would have been a 5-star review, but I have a pet peeve: I hate hate HATE IT when retail stores fail to put pricing labels on the items they are selling. During my visit, I would estimate 80% of the store was unmarked. This is absolutely unacceptable in my eyes. I'm trying to decide between 10 different items; should I really have to drag them all up to the counter, have you scan each one, then put back what I don't want? NO. Stocking and pricing are the job of the employees, not the customer.

Extremely well stocked with unique and exciting gaming collection for mostly tabletop but they are in no way limited by it! A great place if you're looking for expansions or unique board games. They have a treasure trove of gaming books some of which are a little more nich than others will carry. Also consider coming here to pick up a game for family game night as they have many games appropriate for the whole family that are more unique than those you'll find at Target.

This game store is well-stocked with a diverse range of tabletop games, and the parking lot makes it very accessible. The staff are very knowledgeable and accommodating, making sure to speak to both my husband and myself. This makes me feel like they value my time and input, which is important to me as a female gamer. They offer a membership service, which allows you to pre-order games at a discount, which is a nice perk.

Played in a X Wing Tournament. Had a great time and played against some good players. Drove down from Stockton to play. Wish our X Wing Community was big like this. Also the Board gaming and Miniature gamers are also a big group. Large gaming area and a large selection of games.

My favourite gaming store in the bay area! The selection is fantastic (most of my dozen or so sets of dice are from here), and the staff is very helpful. If you're looking for something specific that they don't have in stock, ask them and they can often order it for you.

This place is tabletop game madness! The staff here is friendly and super helpful with a plethora of knowledge that they’re willing to share about all of the games in the store. There are multiple areas to play in, some that are free and others that are available to reserve and rent. They have a schedule full of fun and interesting things to do in the store that is updated regularly. The facilities are kept clean and tidy, and the shelves stocked. If you’re looking to get miniatures for your game night or a gift for someone who likes boardgames, this is the place to go.

This store brought me into the hobby world and started whats gonna be a lifelong obsession with miniature painting. Their employees are nice, informative and knowledgeable. Their selection of games, miniatures,paints and modeling equipment is Amazing! They have just about everything you need. Every time I am in town I always make sure to stop by and Ill be coming here for years to come.

There's another game store that I like better in almost every way, but this place has something very important going for it that many other stores do not have, and that is a seriously comprehensive retail selection. I can't really speak to their events or gaming space because I haven't actually partaken in those. I didn't even realize they had a gaming space until reading reviews, because apparently, it's hidden behind a doorway that looks like a staff only area behind the counter. I was going to take off points for that, but obviously I was wrong, so all I can say is the promotion of their space and events leaves a lot to be desired. They also have some sort of rewards or discount program, but it sounds like something you either have to sign up for or call well in advance of a release to take advantage of, so just like their gaming space and events, it's kind of a foggy area for new customers just stopping by to browse for the first time. I know of other stores that are either more generous or more transparent with these kinds of things. But like I said, the retail selection is the crown jewel of this store. There's still another store I need to check out in this area, but from the places I've visited so far, nowhere else comes close. They carry a lot of games, both popular and obscure, as well as plenty of expansions, miniatures, role playing books, paints, cards, you name it. In every other store I've been to, I've looked for a specific game and not found it. But that has not happened to me once in this store. If I'm interested in a title, I can generally expect to find it here. That's extremely impressive considering there are so many games. Obviously, no store can carry everything. But if you want to find a title that you're hearing a lot of buzz about, chances are it will be here. Also, this seems to be the only store with clearly marked sales and clearance items. It drives me crazy to no end when stores expect you to subscribe to the on social media to be notified of sales, instead of being able to just walk in and see what's available. So kudos to them for that as well. Like I said, there are other stores I prefer in almost every way. But for making retail purchases, I can't help but think you're just better off coming here. I don't know. Maybe it's just my tastes. But more often than not, if I'm interested in a title, this place seems to have it and others don't. And at the end of the day, that's more important than all the other little things (which they do just fine as well).
