Todd Brown opened The Arena in 1997 as your typical sport card store with a mild twist of comicbooks. Trends have come and gone and products with them (no more comics other then a few special trade paperbacks) and The Arena has grown to encompass everything from Football/Baseball cards to Body Jewelry. Yep, even Body Jewelry!
Yes, you can still find autographs, jerseys and other memorabilia. Once my best mate bought some stadium seats from Todd. I did say “Other Memorabilia”. The Arena is so much more then your normal memorabilia/sport store.
The Arena is your one stop shop for gaming. We have card games like Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh, with room in store for casual playing as well saving you a seat in one of our various tournaments we hold each month. We also carry a large variety of tabletop board game favorites (and soon to be favorites) like “The Settlers of Catan” (and it’s many expansions), Munchkin ( in all of its varied forms.) and “Carcassonne” just to name a few. Some of my family’s favorites for holidays and family game night, by the way. If when I say “tabletop games” you start thinking about Role Playing Games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder and/or other RPG systems we have those too! As well as other gaming accessories like Dice, play-mats, miniatures and more. Speaking of miniatures. If you like miniature based games like Warhammer and HeroClix then you are in luck as we carry those also.
I almost forgot to tell you about our huge selection of Video games (vintage games to new releases) and DVDs.
All that and Todd’s amazing/terrible humor/stories/in good spirit pranks you can handle alongside some of the best prices around.
Stop by and see us.
