about us ...
How we started
Hi! My name is Matthew Walsh and I am the owner or WarCraft Games. I opened up my store in early September of 2004. I had previously managed the gaming department of The Comic Shop in beautiful downtown Kitsilano for over 6 years but I started thinking that I'd like to expand skills and run my own store where gaming was the main focus.
I will be forever grateful to the late Ron Norton for teaching me what it was to manage a game space and when I decided to leave his employ, I started looking for a community that was in need of a friendly local game store I did not want to disrespect my former mentor by opening up in the same city so I struck out east ...
In 2004 Mission had only 1 game store and Rick the owner of Gallant Games was looking to close up shop and go into a different field of work. I then sold my house and moved out to Mission and opened September 4th. of that year.
We take pride in being the Fraser Valleys oldest game store!
Over the years we have helped many people discover the joys of gaming and with our friendly and courteous approach to business we are sure to be here for many years to come.
Why WarCraft Games?
Integrity is not just a word for us but a way of life! I have seen more than a couple of stores come and go in Mission over the past 15 years but one thing remains ... our commitment to bringing Mission the best gaming environment around.
WarCraft Games is dedicated to bringing you the best of games with honest service. Our manifesto is not to "get" money from the public but to instead build a community of gamers who will in turn feel happy to help us build a bigger and better store for all of us!
2019: A Boardgame Cafe!
Continuing with our goal to bring Mission the very best of entertainment and with the help and feedback from our ever growing family of gamer's, we started a Kickstarter event to help us raise money to bring Mission it's very own Boardgame Cafe!
Unplug, sit down and reconnect!
Come on in and enjoy a freshly brewed specialty coffee and perhaps take in a tasty treat and explore our comprehensive library of some of the most exciting games in the market. At WarCraft Games Cafe you can while away the hours in a fun, safe environment meeting new friends one game at a time!

Warcraft Games – 5 star
I love this store. I drive out from Abby to shop here. Staff is friendly & helpful. I never feel any pressure to purchase - but always do. Best game store for miles.

Warcraft Games – 5 star
Always great and friendly service. The almost always have what im looking for and if they don't they order it in. Prices are great. I don't pay my dungeons and dragons items anywhere else.
