Strategies Games & Hobbies: what do users think?
Jacob: Fairly small but good selection of boardgames, not much magic.
megafun forever: Very relaxing and fun place
Ken Regehr: Awesome store, friendly knowledgeable staff and an amazing assortment of hard to find games. This place is great!
Lucas Konschuh-Beer: Super friendly staff, lots of stock for all your hobby needs and hassle free ordering of anything they don't have
J Jackson: Great selection and friendly staff.
Cecilia Mok: A well stocked games store with helpful and chill staff. They have a great selection of games for all ages here.
Abby Nicole: Great selection of DND figurines & books, as well as board games.
Steve Lemky: My favorite game shop and the unofficial game store of Thunderbowl, the lowermainland's premiere blood bowl league. Love this store!
Leah Chatfield: Great selection and helpful staff!
Charles: The staff are not friendly nor helpful. They don’t seen to like their jobs and seemed rude.
Bob O: They do not carry a wide selection of paint if that is what you are after, but otherwise a fantastic local game store
Michelle Oh: helpful staff
Pedro Medeiros: Awesome and helpful staff. They are always very well stocked on board games and RPG books
Jack Aurelius: Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great selection
Matt Blatz: Fantastic selection, knowledgeable staff. 10/10
Gab Houghton: The shop is clean and well laid out.After 5 visits over a year, the staff are still rude and short- more motivated to get you to leave quickly. Asking a question about the products is often met with an eyeroll. Online shopping may be preferable.
Steve Miller: I've been coming to Strategies for a while but I don't find the staff to be all that friendly or engaging. In my experience, they don't seem to try very hard to foster loyalty, rapport or repeat business. For example, despite having spent hundreds of dollars there, I had to negotiate pretty hard just to return one unopened paint pot. This experience, combined with their pretty high prices, makes me want to look at discount online retailers instead. Still, 3 stars for a good selection in stock.
Anand Sriganeshar: Good selection and knowledgeable staff make this a great local option for board games & table top games.
Jerry: When I asked for a recommendation for a nice family game, Gopaul (spelling?) gave us a few of his personal recommendations. Everyone there was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Above all, they all seemed passionate about what they do. Will definitely be back.
Tully Pinkerton: Great selection of boardgames, wargames, and RPGs. If they don't have it, they'll gladly order it in for you.
Badger and Yew: Always love this store! Really great game selection and amazing people!

Rain City Games: what do users think?
Tim Worthington: Very good selection of games. Staff was very nice helping me check if they had the games I was looking for.
Melih Yılmaz: Great place for board and card games in general. They have a huge collection of games and single cards. Cool place for playing commander games. Also the best prizing for Magic the Gathering events in city.
The Corvid: probably the best custumor service out there
Jason J: I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Igor Petrovic (IggyPop): Amazing selection of games. Great and helpful staff.
Joshua Ji: So many selections for games and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Very clean store and great atmosphere. Enjoyed the concept of the games schedule (different activities scheduled for different days and times).Prices were a bit high but the quality of the board games also looked very good.
Matthew Ellis: Staff worked with my non carding wife to help her get cards for my card playing son.Made her feel welcomed and respected …Hmm that kind of service is commendable and will be rewarded with additional purchases from my family
PB O: Asked for recommendations for conversation and language games and didn't receive any help, so was just about to give up when another worker who worked there (Tia/Thia, I forget, I'm so sorry) overheard us, intervened, and helped me and my colleague soooo much! I will be forever grateful for her help and knowledge of the products, she was truly great at advertising. She provided us with so many options, which was really useful. She always had a smile, was really approachable, and really helped our school out. The pride I felt when my coworker and I walked back into the office to show off to our boss the fantastic haul we managed to find, for a really great price too. She really helped us out, her immaculate energy perked our mood up too, and I will recommend this store to anybody and everybody now. We will certainly be back. Thank you, ma'am!
Trevor Bradley: Great game store. Very welcoming!
Sarawut Yuttanava: ❤️❤️❤️
Cort Carpenter: I should have gone here years ago. Rad selection of games and super friendly employees. They also ordered me a game I could not find elsewhere. Even on the net. Easy ordering system in person and online. Excellent store.
Vernon Lo: Great Selection of tabletop games available
Draco: 270 for a astral radience box is insane. Go to any other Local Card Store and itll be half the priceEdit: I was a bit too harsh, but I still believe it's overpriced
planes3333: Nice staff. I came to buy some plastic figurines, (they used to make them lead) pretty fair priced. Helpful staff, the one dude lingered a bit hovering over me but I assume he was just trying to be helpful anb also in being in the downtown eastside I am sure they deal with lots of attempted thefts. I like going there lots of stuff and hopefully they will get more dragons in.
second stone: Great selection. Very knowledgeable. -1 star for prices being on average $10 more than anywhere else… Down town tax?
Gérard campos: Très sympa avec beaucoup de choix de jeux
Nereid Lake: So friendly and helpful. And if you are visiting from out of town, you can stick a pin in their world map to show where you are from!
Naiesca Wagner: I can't understand the comments about "little variety" people are either mean or really blind, the store is huge, has a lot of games, characters to color, space to play, special paints, brushes, stuffed animals. Complete, clean, organized store, with professionals who come to you and ask if you need something or are looking for something specific.
Reza Moallemi: I recently visited Rain City Games and was blown away by the selection of board games and the overall experience. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, helping me find the perfect game for my family game night.The store itself had a great atmosphere, with a wide selection of games that catered to all ages and interests. I appreciated that the staff took the time to explain the rules and mechanics of the games, making it easy to dive right in and start playing.
Johnny Tang: Cool place to play card games Yu-gi-yo, magic, pokemon and lots of boardgames and the prices are reasonable
Steven Phan: I ordered 18 of the same board game online to furnish and include it into my short term rentals because its a hot boardgame at the moment. The orders were flagged as fraud and cancelled. I called and spoke with Braden who said a manager would get back to me. I got an email from Channing who is one of the co-owners saying that it would be fine and to re-order. Then I got an email later from Andrea the other co-owner gaslighting me and making assumptions without knowing who I am. All orders cancelled again.Just trying to support small business.

Drexoll Games: what do users think?
Thomas Byrne: Popped into the shop this afternoon to look at games for me and my gf. The guy (wish I got his name, Black beard) who works there was one of the most professional people I've ever dealt with in any business. He knew exactly what to recommend for the games we currently like and play and was able to recommend different variations of what we could like. I work in enterprise sales for fortune 100 companies and this guy is one of the best sellers I've ever come across because he genuinely cares. I will be coming back for sure!
Maile Carpenter: Such a lovely experience. The shop is set up nicely, the cashier was friendly (despite my slightly grumpy attitude, sorry!) but not overbearing and very clear about where things were in the store (awesome for people like me who struggle with directions and have a slower processing time). Always intimidating to go into a game shop as a woman, and I know the bar is on the floor, but I didn't feel out of place at all which i'm super grateful for. I just wish they had a bigger dice collection. Keep up the good work gang!
Tim Woodburn: I walked into Drexoll to shop for, and ideally purchase, a travel cribbage board. I walked in and a mother and son (my assumption) were in the store shopping and a group of folks were at the back table playing a game. I looked around for what I needed. I found a case the looked like it had the boards in it but it was a closed glass case. I then walked around the shop to see if I could see anything else. Finally, after a few minutes, I wandered back to the glass case. At no point was I greeted by anyone or offered assistance. I settled down and opened the case and started rummaging to see if I could find what I was looking for. Behind me I heard someone greet and speak with the mother and son. After some time moving items in the case, pulling things out and searching, I looked up to find the person that spoke to the other customers, standing back at the game table in the rear. Finally, I put the items back in the case, glanced back at the table and left. Why no one felt the I should be acknowledged or offered assistance is baffling to me. Great customer service is rare but zero customer service is astonishing. If you're looking for a game, I'd suggest you try somewhere else.
Trevor A: Good selection of games, CCGs, and table-top RPGs. Friendly staff that was happy to give recommendations based on what we liked.
Sasan Ahmadi Asl: Little shop, not so many options on the paint and coloring section! A little unorganized in that section!
Jeff Dittmer: Wow, great help and amazing selection! If you can’t find it here I don’t think you’ll find it anywhere
Anthony Chow: Good selection of top end games, and wide variety, didn’t have some I was looking for (one was out of stock) but generally great place
Brenden V: Plenty of games for all kinds of gaming experience. The staff had plenty of recommendations for anything I asked.
Gigi Peters: Lise is super helpful every time I needed help or offering recommendations. This place is a gem and supports a local community of gamers by offering space for people to connect.
Hubert Courteau-Godmaire: Great advices to find a game for my friends and I
Tim Worthington: Absolutely fantastic selection of board games! Had a range of games that includes every style you can think of and the staff are super knowledgeable and helpful at finding the games you want.Personally picked up a Jan Sasaki game since they’re so hard to find, as well as Parks since the groups I play with tend to vary a lot in skill level.Would definitely recommend going here for all your board gaming needs
Markus Gerhard: Excellent selection of new and older games and especially Pen & Paper RPGs. I was able to find some Battletech books I’ve been searching for years. The staff was nice to chat with and to top it off I was given an oversized D20 for free.
Chad Rattie: Great selection and friendly staff
Andrew Martinez: Great store with amazing staff. These people know their stuff and are more than happy to lend a hand or provide some insight. Highly recommend
Jean-Simon Deslauriers: This place is a treasure trove for board game enthusiasts. They have a huge selection, including some long or of print stuff left. Somewhat or of the way of the city center, but if you like board games, is a must
Badger and Yew: Huge selection of games new and old. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, it's a little far from where we live but we always go when were at that end of the city. Great place for puzzles, rpg books and boardgames.
Charis Young: Amazing selection of games and resources, the staff is super friendly. One of my favorite places to browse and pick up new games.
William Vogel: Good people, always out of realeases .
John: Classic. Great staff and great selection, been coming here for years.
silberlichtchen: Have been going to this store for the past 10 years. One of the best games selections in town. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.
Jamie Banks: Helpful and funny staff, great selection

GameStop: what do users think?
Anne-Marie Tremblay-Alvarez: Pretty good funko pop options, and had some good clearance stuff. Definitely worth checking out!
Rani K.: This gamestop handled the Tears of the Kingdom release very well! Special thanks to Taz for making sure everyone in line was hydrated (those water bottles looked heavy!)
Rafael Zañudo: Im walking to watch the figures and I know there’s people in the line to buy some exclusive game but I only want to see the figures so someone from the staff just kicked me back to the store I think the they have to work more about the customers service
Kota Ito: Incredibly inefficient employees
Tim L: Had exactly what we were looking for. Super friendly staff.
Adrian Fernando: Really helpful team here….Highly recommended
Skelpocalypse Junior: Can't wait until you're shut down. They get upset because you're mad that they ripped you off. Thank god for Amazon.
Darius S: It’s ok. Looking for item they said they have but didn’t
Juan Sebastian Velasco: Griffin the new manager treat me and my wife so amazing, that I had to give a review. He was friendly and tried his best to help us. He didn't even care that we came in 10 minutes before closing time and he didn't rushed us.Thanks, and congrats to game stop for having such a good team, with great costumer service.
Gabriela Kirsch: Friendly environment. I was with my dog and they are allowed inside the store. So any store that allows dogs have a bonus point 🤗
David Yates: Small store but nice, the new manager seems really happy to be there. If they don't have something you're looking for ask them if they can check stores in the area to have them shipped to the store.
Jesse Harkness: Great staff, like way too good. It's not Gamesrop tho, lol. It's EB Games :)
Amir Beiklik: Great place, lots of great choices..
林彥: This store employee may be a liar or a thief.The free game code is to game player, not to get the store employee or their friend to sell online to make their salary higher.This EB games is the worst game stop, I hear from every my friends when they go to ask want free game code their employee want them buy something or pre order something if you didn't spend any money this store employee could say sorry our game code run out.
Teng Chang: This store employee may be a liar or a thief.The free game code is to game player, not to get the store employee or their friend to sell online to make their salary higher.From the beginning days to today, they said game code is run out only six days.
Sam Ma: This store employee may be a liar or a thief.The free game code is to game player, not to get the store employee or their friend to sell online to make their salary higher.From the beginning days to today, they said game code is run out only six days.This EB games is the worst game stop, I hear from every my friends when they go to ask want free game code their employee want them buy something or pre order something if you didn't spend any money this store employee could say sorry our game code run out.
vory verl: Service is so outfall
Eugene Ch'ng: Stopped by for Dying Light 2, got Bioshock Collection and suggestions for many more. Great team, lovely people all so helpful - If you read this I want to follow your instagrams!
Kat Marasigan (Avocado Party): I was a previous employee of GameStop (when it was EBGames) and I always found the customer service from this store lackluster. The store manager Dante, if he still is present, I have to point out is amazing regardless. He's always been so kind, friendly and helpful. The staff however more often than not have always been very hit and miss. When contacting their store for help or transfers it was always so short and rude on the phone, and not to mention misinformed. From a customer standpoint the phone has always been horrible. I had an employee straight up lie to me directing me to "head office" for my issue. Besides me knowing the pos system from working for this company, even our regulars understand how the pos works, it isn't rocket science. I hate leaving such low stars but I would give Dante 5 himself if I could.
A Sa: Dante was amazing, helped me get all the ps5 accessories I needed. Had an awesome experience!
Anthony S: Greedy company, maybe normal ppl want a PS5 and not to have to pay 1200 bucks to a reseller because your company insists on ALWAYS selling to them first
