GAMES, COMICS, & MORE
From a Humble Community
Our simple beginning as a gaming community, playing in garages and basements, has given us a firm foundation to grow into a full fledged store. We are proud to be the premier location for table top gaming, comic books, and related accessories for the Greenville area.
We called ourselves M.U.G.G., the Magic Underground Gamers’ Guild. This was back when you could have sanctioned MTG tournaments outside of commercial establishments. There wasn’t a place to game anymore because Greenville had lost two different stores in the span of about 15 years.
A group of us would meet to play board games, cards, compete in tournaments, and just hang out with like-minded individuals. Over time this group grew. Packs of cards turned into boxes and the rules for tournaments changed.
When building something out of a passion, it isn’t about the money, it’s about the love for whatever it is you’re doing.” -Rob Mountney
A brick and mortar store was now required for sanctioned MTG tournaments, space was becoming limited, and cards weren’t the only game in town. The problem was…there was nowhere to game in town. That is how Excelsior was born.
Today, we maintain that commitment to the community we started by devoting a great deal of our space to a large play area. We offer a wide variety of organized play options and are eager to teach new players. We hope you will be as much a part of our community as we want to be part of yours.
So, “Come in, game on, and excelsior!”
