Channing and Andrea took over the store - then called One Stop Shop Cards and Games - in September 2017. Since then, we've worked to build our local gaming community and make Rain City Games a home base for game lovers of all stripes.
I've been playing games since the late 80s. I cut my teeth on RPG classics like D&D, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Star Wars, then somewhere along the way got hooked on Battletech and Bloodbowl.
I started out a marine biologist and ended up a game store owner. It's a straight line. Along the way, my childhood love of board games has only deepened. You'll find me playing puzzlers like Sagrada or Bärenpark, or nostalgic favourites like Set, Sequence, Killer Bunnies, or Last Will.
Our in-store events emphasize community over competition. They're casual, friendly, and fun - and we wouldn't have it any other way!
Our community doesn't end at the door, however. We support clubs, organizations, and charities throughout the Greater Vancouver area. We focus on groups that support children and youth, as well as groups that address homelessness, addiction, and other mental health issues in the Downtown Eastside.
