Catering to some of the more unconventional hobbies out there, Gamerz R Us has built a destination in Cocoa for tabletop game enthusiasts. Owner Seth Gibson, Manager Arick Canny, and their staff have built a welcoming, exciting location, where they sell, trade, and host events around trading card games, tabletop roleplaying games, and more. Their 5,000 square feet of space provides a huge amount of playing space that most other card and game shops could only dream of having.
Seth and his friends have been operating Gamerz R Us for nearly four years, and have built a community around themselves, regulars who come to play their games of choice every week. Modern digital solutions have allowed Gamerz R Us to weather the difficulties of COVID, which halted their highly-beloved events and game nights for several months, and they’ve come back with a bang.
Gamerz R Us supports gamers and collectors of a wide variety, supporting and running events for trading card games like Magic the Gathering, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Digimon, frequently hosting weekly events with dozens of spectators and players, as well as larger events and tournaments that see over 200 people at the location. They also cater to other games, selling products and providing play space for tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer 40,000. And for families and friends not participating in these flagship activities, Gamerz R Us has a back room with big, comfy couches where people can chill and hang out and play video games on Sony Play- Stations and Nintendo Switches. They also have snacks and cold drinks for sale to keep you comfortable.
You can find Gamerz R Us on Facebook at @GamerzRUs06 and they have a Facebook group and a Discord server for gamers to connect and chat. Gamerz R Us also has an online store www.gamerzrus.net/store where you can buy new card packs or singles from the comfort of your home with free shipping.
