Gauntlet Games is excited to announce the launch of our new website and commemoration of 15 years in business! Our motto is Nebraska's Best Gaming, which is based on the fact that our gaming community dates all the way back to the days of Hobbies Etc. at the original Reunion Building location in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, in the '80s  and Spellbound Books and Games in the '90s and early 2000s. Of course, we welcome new gamers every day and host regular leagues and tournament gameplay in the store throughout the year.

Gauntlet Games is 50% retail, 50% gaming space, and 100% excitement! We carry a huge selection of board games, tabletop games, card games, dice games, and role-playing games. In addition, we also carry an assortment of out-of-print and in-print used games, miniatures, and books!

If you're really into the hobby aspect of gaming, we have you covered with a large variety of paints, brushes, tools, terrain, storage solutions, card sleeves, and more. If it's not in stock, we can special order it and typically have it in the store for you within a few days. Furthermore, we host a number of new game demonstrations in the store, with dates posted on the Events Calendar, social media, and our in-store events board.

If you get thirsty or hungry while gaming here at the store, we offer a number of snack items and beverages to our customers at a reasonable price.




Gauntlet Games specializes in hobby and lifestyle games. Whether it's modern classics like Catan, Dungeon and Dragons,  Warhammer 40K, or Magic the Gathering, we carry a huge variety of board games, tabletop games, card games, dice games, role-playing, miniatures, and a constantly rotating assortment of out-of-print and current used games.



Board Games

For the whole Family

Board games are as American as apple pie and football. You would be hard pressed to find someone that has never heard of Monopoly or Candy Land. But, what about Scythe, Pandemic, or Twilight Imperium?  Families are rediscovering their love of board games and Gauntlet Games has you covered. In addition to a wide selection of titles for sale, we also maintain a constantly evolving board game library inside with demos running regularly.


Tabletop Games

This Means War!

These are your classic war and miniature games. Whether it's army, rank-and-flank, or skirmish-based games; Gauntlet Games carries a number of fan favorites like Age of Sigmar, Warhammer 40K, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Kings of War, and many more! Of course, we carry everything you need for the hobby side of these games—including paints, brushes, tools, terrain, storage solutions, card sleeves, and more.

Card Games

Collectible, Expandable, and More

Magic: The Gathering, Legend of the Five Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars: Destiny, Munchkin, and many more are always in stock. Defunct FFG card games like Android: Netrunner and Warhammer 40K: Conquest are still available while supplies last. Singles for collectible card games are also available in limited supply. 

Dice Games

Literally Buckets of Dice

If your game uses dice, there's a very good chance that not only do we have it, we have it in a number of colors and sizes that fit you and your army or character's paint scheme or personality. Of course, if there is a brand or style of dice we don't have in stock, there is a very good chance we can special order it.


Role-playing Games

more Than Dungeon and Dragons

Fantasy, Science-fiction, Superhero, Western, or Cyberpunk—there is a flavor for you! There are a number of role-playing groups that play here at Gauntlet Games and we always have room for more. Come down and check out our in-store message board for groups looking for more. Of course, if you have a group and need a miniature to represent your character or enemies in the game, we have a huge collection of Dungeon and Dragons and Reaper miniatures to choose from.


Used Games

Old school and new school

Sometimes one person's junk is another person's treasure. No matter what though, you will be surprised at what you may find in our used games bin. These selections rotate fairly often, so it never hurts to stop in and see what we've put out. Games, books, miniatures, supplements, expansions, and accessories for old and new games are all fair game to be put in our bin. If you're a "kit basher," this may be your number one resource for picking up some old (and new) GW minis and more.



Gauntlet Games carries a full line of paints, brushes, primers, sealers, modeling tools, adhesives, sculpting compounds, scenics, terrain kits—deep inhale and continues—heavy board, plastic, and canvas storage cases, card sleeves, page sleeves, binders, and card cases.
