The Origin of Uncle’s Games
Uncle’s Games started in 1978 as Book and Game Co., a small independent business in Spokane, WA. Originally, it was a hybrid store featuring the latest and greatest in books and games. A “Renaissance” for games coupled with a “Dark Age” for printed books inspired us to double down on the game industry. During the early 2000s, Book and Game Company phased out the books and rebranded itself. It was named “Uncle's Games” after its flagship game store that had been coupled with its former bookstore flagship, Auntie's Books (which is still alive and well under the ownership of one of the original Book and Game founders).
In 2004, we officially changed our name to Uncle's Inc. and opened our first store west of the Cascades in Redmond, WA. Our company always strives to provide knowledgeable employees that love people and work to help every one of our customers find the perfect game for their needs.
The Fantasy Flight Media Center provides a useful tool to help introduce customers to games. We often have people ask us for more information on the games shown on the media center. Our knowledgeable staffers are then able to utilize their extensive experience to better serve them.
Uncle’s Games Today
Our Redmond store features a robust gaming library of over 300 games, and (since we have four stores) we can find a demo of that special game you were looking for and have it ready for you on our Friday Game Night.
We run daily events and often stay open late to provide the best possible gaming experience for our customers. Our Friday Game Night garners a crowd of more than thirty gamers that come in at 7pm and stay 'til midnight.
Uncle's Games is well known for running Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and a whole host of other games as well. Some of our events garner more than 100 people! Check out our events calendar at http://unclesgames.com/redmond/
