Our 12 gaming tables are available to play on for free anytime and game demos are always welcome. We recommend calling ahead for availability Fridays to Sundays as we often have special events using large sections of the store.
The Soldiery is a full service game store specializing in role playing games,
board games, ccgs, miniatures, and historical games.
We carry a wide range of singles of Magic the Gathering. Just let us know
what cards you want and we will look up the price and tell you if we have
them in stock. For those that need to root, we have 7 shoe boxes of
common magic cards/land for just 8 cents a piece.
We are also well known for our out-of-print items.We have 49 feet of
display racks, chock full of new and used board games, in addition to
many popular board games displayed all over the store. We have two
and a half packed wall panels of Reaper Bones fantasy figures.
We are stockists of Games Workshop and are pleased to offer
15% off everyday on our extensive inventory and 20% off on
prepaid special orders of items we don't stock or on direct special orders.
We take trade-ins of old games for new. If you have a collection of board games you are interested in trading in or even selling, either send us an email or fax us a brief description of what you have.
Magic the Gathering Buy/Trade Policy - We Offer Cash or Trade! We are looking for any: 1. Planeswalkers (special type of magic card first released in Lorwyn)
2. Valuable cards (valued over $8 for rares and $5 for uncommons, that we don't already have many of in our inventory).
3. Bulk Rares/Mythics ($1 store credit per 8 rares/mythics, must be actual rares, no time spiral purples or foreign cards).
4. Bulk everything else (not basic land) at $2.50 to $3.50 per 1000 in store credit
Trade Policy: We give store credit on a sliding scale from 20% to as high as 50%, depending on how quickly we feel the card might sell, how many we already have in stock and condition of the card.
We give half of store credit, if you want cash (or combination of credit and cash).
We are also interested in distressed/store inventories and even junk bins.
