5-stars: “Huge selection of board games. Just coming in and browsing is an experience in and of itself. The employee(s) are definitely enthusiasts and know plenty about most of the games they sell.” –Jon, Yelp review of Games Unlimited
5-stars: “Man, this place is one of my favorite spots in PGH. My husband and I are little nerdular nerdances who love weird board games, and these are our people! They have a great stock of new and used games, ranging from the extremely popular to the obscure. But the best part of this store? The staff. They are exceedingly helpful and knowledgeable, always ready to recommend a good game for what we are looking for (want complex building? Here’s Puerto Rico! want a quick two person game? Try Morels or Lost Cities!). It’s fairly common to come in and see the staff play-testing new games so they can give honest reviews. Chandra (I’m sure I’m spelling his name wrong, so sorry!) is our go to for a good recommendation for any of their “demo” games, which you pay $5 to demo and then get a $5 store credit if you return it within the week.” –Margaret, Yelp review of Games Unlimited
5-stars: “This is definitely the best board game store in Pittsburgh. They’ve got an awesome selection of all the latest games (and older stuff too), and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, without being intrusive. They also have a substantial “dent & ding” section with markdowns of older stock and store demo copies; there are major bargains to be had. It definitely has the great local game store vibe, and I can see why it has such a high Yelp rating.” –Nathan, Yelp review of Games Unlimited
5-stars: “I had a wonderful experience here recently, picking out a board game for my family. I don’t have much expertise in board games, but our family really enjoyed playing the collaborative board game “Pandemic”, and I was looking for some suggestions for other collaborative games that we might like. The person who was working at the store was incredibly helpful: he gave me some great advice, and we really enjoyed playing the game that I ended up purchasing. While I was browsing in the store, I also heard him giving similarly excellent advice to other customers who were looking for other types of games or toys. I will definitely shop at this store again, and I have recommended it to other families.” –Todd, Yelp review of Games Unlimited
Don’t just take their word for it — come on in and see for yourself!
“They’re fantastic at recommending games, even when you give them lots of constraints. And last time I was there I was hesitant to buy what they recommended, so they rustled up an unboxed copy and played a round against me right there at the counter. It was so fun to watch them geek out about strategy.” –Zombie-Process, Reddit Pittsburgh
“They’ve got a decent library of board games you can rent from there for a week ($5 for the rental, but the receipt is worth $5 store credit so it’s effectively free as long as you buy something from them occasionally), so my girlfriend and I rented a new game every week for a few months. Lots of fun, discovered some good new games. Kylie learned my name after the second time I was there and was always friendly and ready to discuss recommendations. Definitely recommend it for anyone into board games (or looking to get into them).” –Quazifuji, Reddit Pittsburgh
“I hit games stores up there last summer. Enjoyed my time in Games Unlimited. They actually took the time to find out what I liked before making recommendations. I ended up finding an out of print game I had been afraid to buy on ebay. It was in great condition and exactly what I had been looking for.” –C-Rock, Reddit Pittsburgh
“These are incredible people at Games Unlimited. Some of the kindest people you will ever meet. We are lucky to have this in Pittsburgh and it’s a local business we all ought to support.” –Pburghgamer, Reddit Pittsburgh
