[Photo Story] Master Goblin Games opens at State College
Whether you love D&D, Magic: The Gathering or the fantastic themed board games – or just want cute dice – Master Goblin Games has it all, folks.
The board game retailer recently opened a store in State College at 234 E. College Ave., just below Urban Outfitters. Another location exists in San Francisco, and more are in the works.
Owner Ryan Dickinson, who lived at State College and worked at Penn State, says he thinks a game store might work well here due to the unique demographics of the borough’s students.
The State College location is run by Principal Jeremiah Baughman, who has long played board games and served as vice president of his college’s board game club. For Baughman, Master Goblin Games is a hub where people with common interests can meet and play.
“I want this to be a place to build a community, where people can come in and play games – whether it’s games they’ve received from us or games they bring themselves,” said Baughman.
Master Goblin Games offers plenty of places to release a game and connect with others.
The boutique is also the only retailer to offer specialty Dice Envy dice in-store.
Master Goblin Games is located on McAllister Street below Urban Outfitters and next to Cafe Wow.
Every first Friday of the month, Master Goblin Games hosts an open game night. If you want to learn more, meet friends, get your club involved, or stay on top of store events, you can join the Master Goblin Game Discord service by scanning the QR code below.
