With the release of new restrictions, we have made the decision to pause in-store play until further notice.
All prepaid event registrations should have been refunded already, please contact us if you have not yet.
We will do our best to bring back games as soon as possible, and are just as sad and disappointed as you all.

Wizards of the Coast and us here at Magic Stronghold Games and working diligently to get you folks playing more in the strange and difficult time.
Here's how it's going to work— we will be holding Friday Night Magic events on Magic: The Gathering Arena but WotC is letting stores like ours give out some of rewards by creating or utilizing existing online communities. In our instance, Discord!
Play at home, connect to your store, earn more rewards.
Step-by-step, here's how it works:
- Play in the FNM at Home event (win or lose as much as you want)
- Take a screenshot of your event page
- Join our Discord Server (Click Here!)
- Share your screenshot with a nice message on our channel
- We will message you a code* through DM on Discord!
*Note: While supplies last. Limit one code per account. Sharing a screenshot does not guarantee you will receive a code.

Let's explore this new and exciting way to play together!
Free shipping, and new trade in policy
Magic Stronghold Friends and Family
We are continuing our efforts to promote social distancing. We are now offering free shipping on orders over $50 on TCG singles, and free expedited for shipping over $200 for anything else. (includes TCGs)
To further our efforts with safe social distancing and reduce the interaction between staff and customer we are making changes to the way we buy your cards. Going forward we will require that collections be dropped off for appraisal,
we will do the hard work and call or e-mail you with a total. Please expect to leave any collection larger than 10 cards with us.
Payments will be in cash, store credit, E-transfer or Paypal.
Please place your cards in a white card box that you would like have appraised and we will process your collection within 48 hours. The reason is because COVID-19 can live on surfaces for much longer than some other virus's. (https://bit.ly/2Wy6Xxp)
Steps to sell us cards for store credit, Paypal, E-transfer or Cash.
1. Place all the cards you would like into card boxes (if they are in plastic, processing will take longer.)
2. Write your full name, email address and phone number clearly on the box of your collection.
3. Wait for the appraisal. We will do the rest!
We will then e-mail you or call you with the cards categorized into price for you to check yourself. If you would like to keep any of the cards you left us, they will be ready for pickup on your next visit. Once you give us the go ahead. We will pay you in cash, Paypal, e-transfer or in store credit (+25% trade bonus).

Suspended Play Area and Updated Hours
March 16, 2020
Dear Magic Stronghold Friends and Family,
For the safety of the public and our staff we have made the toughest decision to temporarily suspend our play area. All scheduled events will be temporarily cancelled and rescheduled if need be. Unfortunately it has come to this where we need to work together as a gaming community to stay safe and be positive through these troubling times. During this time our hours of operations will be changed to accommodate.
Monday - Sunday 12pm-8pm
Our website is open 7 days a week and orders will be processed as usual. Local pickup has not changed. We will be monitoring government channels for future updates.
Thank you for your continuing support. This is a devastating decision I have had to make. Unfortunately the safety and well being for the community is our greatest concern.
