Initial Visit: March 11th, 2015
Description: Do you love board games? Magic the Gathering? Puzzles? Then this place is Just For You!
Just For Fun has just about every board game you can think of. With the exception of the mass produced ones (Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, etc). If you are looking for it, they probably have it. They have shelves and shelves and shelves full of games. They have a huge stash behind the registers. They have stuff on the counter. If you can’t find a board game in here that interests you, then you probably are not really into board games.
They also offer your usual Magic: the Gathering offerings. Cards, sleeves, decks, pre-releases, etc. Their prices are fair on those, except they charge more for the Magic pre-releases. Why? Probably because they can and people pay it.
Also offered are odds and ends. Dice. Playmats. Those figures you paint and then set up battles for (sorry, I don’t know the technical name for that). Board Game night on Thursday, last I knew. They have casual gaming areas where I think you can just come in with your friends, snag a table and play.
Overall, a great store for the Peoria area. Staff has been wonderful pretty much every time I’ve been in there though. Since their initial opening, they have moved locations several times. Hopefully their current spot is home to them for a long time. Their rating would be a bit higher, but overcharging for Magic pre-releases irks me more than it should. That aside, a great gaming store that Peoria needed. I will try to snap a few photos the next time I am in there and update this post when I do.
