Our pre-orders are now live for the newest Magic: The Gathering expansion, Rivals of Ixalan, which releases next Friday, 1/19/18!

In-store we will retail boxes well below SRP at $105+tax, but on a limited basis. Better yet - to reserve your box to pick up on Release Day for $100, email manager@DiceCity.Games or call 443.42.GAMES ...or pay ahead for just $99 via PayPal to manager@DiceCity.Games

Filled with Dinosaurs, Pirates, and powerful new Merfolk, this set is sure to be a ...hit!

The Wizards Play Network reserves pre-release kits for local game stores over two months in advance of pre-release now, so while we were too new of a WPN shop to be offered a pre-release by WOTC when they were closing registration a couple months ago, we are excited for Draft Weekend - starting next Friday - and to start hosting Standard events weekly after that!

Also, good news: we are now a “Core Level” store, so we will definitely be hosting a Dominaria Pre-release this Spring! In fact, we are on track to be and “Advanced” level store by then as well, which means more perks for our patrons!

For anyone in the Wheaton area (or beyond really) who's looking for a last minute gift, check these folks out.

It's a new store that's still in the "soft open" phase, but the owner and staff are incr...edibly warm and welcoming. They're interested in what sort of events spark the imaginations of the local community, while offering an clean, open, and accepting atmosphere to play in.

Can't recommend them highly enough.

This place is run by diehard, true to the core, gaming fans who have poured their souls into this store. You can buy cool, geeky stuff anywhere on the internet but you can’t get that sense of communit...y and compassion from a computer that you can get from genuine guys like Jimmy and Jesse. Highly recommend. See More

DC Games is the best. Radical inclusivity is the top priority at this clean, well lit, well run (by dedicated enthusiastic gamers and social coordinators), socially conscious game/collectibles shop. G...reat parking, great accessibility, and tons of resources within literally steps of the front door. Check it out. Check it out ... NOW. See More

I initially came to the store when I heard a friend of a friend was opening a business..... thought he was a madman trying to open a brick-and-mortar retail for such a niche market in Wheaton, but I w...anted to pay my respects in terms of a few purchases.

Five weeks later, I find myself checking in his shop at least once a week to see what events are happening, or just to stop and hang out with a new friend I may have met a few weeks prior. In my opinion, Jimmy's vision ranges far beyond a retail operation..... I've experienced Dice City games as an inclusive community center with some of the most pleasant personalities the DMV has to offer (I've seen Jimmy personally speaking to near-every participant in an event, gathering immediate feedback and collecting your availability, so the events you're interested in best cater to your schedule.

All in all, Jimmy presents us with a revolutionary business model for the 21st century, where different generations can relax, community build, and have a great time, and I look forward to enjoying the opportunity Jimmy has created for years to come.

If you've ever felt the need to scratch your Gamer Itch, I implore you to start here. Jimmy, Jesse, and Julian are passionate about what they've created and it's quite easy to tell. After not playing ...MTG for years, these guys caught me up to speed and answered every one of my questions. But make no mistake, this is a house of learned veterans with an inordinate amount of amassed knowledge. The crowd is welcoming and happy to have their brains picked. Small town neighborhood vibes with a modern look, Dice City games is my new hometown hub for all things nerddom! See More

Can't believe it has been a week since Dice City Games took the floor as thousands of Magic players descended on Grand Prix D.C.! Shout outs to Julian, Shaunica, Liz, Bernie and Moose Loot for helping staff our booth, which several people have told me was "booth of the show" for them! We are so glad our limited run "play a better world" playmats & dice bags, and our deep selection of vintage Magic products were well received by everyone! Thank you to all who patronized us or said "hi!", and to Joel Sadowsky and the rest of the gang in Team DCG shirts - nearly all of whom made Day 2! Though our opening date is still TBA, It's just one week til we get the keys to our permanent space and we couldn't be more looking forward to our future with this great community.

The tricky legal aspects of starting your first business take an eye for detail, and thankfully we have a new lawyer -- who's been named the "Best in D.C." by the The Washington Blade -- helping us move ahead faster now in that department. But the need for an eye for detail doesn't stop there. In our inventory department, we continue the massive project of sorting our million-Magic card cache. Each card gets sorted by language, set, color, and alphabetically; then sleeved and boxed, chronologically by order of set release. A special thank you to Fiona, Julian, Eric, Tyler,Colleen, Ryan, Matt, Gregory, Joy, Larry, Esther, Tommy, Artaud Touis, Chris, and Shaunica for their help sorting! 🎲🎲🎲 And an extra special thank you to Shaunica for baking her dope vegan chocolate Guinness cupcakes with Jameson's Vanilla Frosting! 💚🍻☘️ We are close enough to making big announcements that we are are going to forgo a release event for the new Magic expansion, Hour of Devastation. But to all of our friends, we wish you luck at your pre-releases; may your boosters contain Invocations!
