From the Owner-February Special!

First, I’d like to personally thank everyone for an exciting first year! While it had some ups and downs, one of the best things from this past year was getting to know all of you. I think we have a great community. I’ve been pleasantly surprised that I like to spend my own free time with you, socializing as well as gaming.

I am incredibly pleased by all of the new events and products that we have been able to introduce including adding miniatures, second-hand games, and expanding our selection of MTG:singles. We were able to do this, all while honoring the promises of the previous ownership.

In reviewing all of the great things that have been accomplished in 2017, it has become apparent that some changes are also going to need to be made, specifically with the membership program.

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that we will be changing how the rewards will be awarded. This was not an easy decision. There was a great deal of debate and struggle. While I would have liked to continue with the old membership, it just wasn’t viable. I believe the new structure will be fair to all of us. Check out the new membership program rewards by clicking here.

I believe 2018 will be an exciting time for Game Universe as we work together to continue to grow and expand the events and product lines that are offered!

In order to show my appreciation, Game Universe will be offering 25% off on all board games and non-collectible card games for the month of February!

Thank you,
Andrew O. Rowe, Owner
