Join the conversation on Facebook!

Part of our approach to opening a local gaming store has been to create the building blocks for community. Instead of just selling games and keeping a shop, we’re trying to connect local gamers with like minded people and create a community around being a healthy, happy person. In doing so, our greater gaming community becomes stronger every day!

We’re the spot in town for local gamers to play and hang out. Between weekly Magic: the Gathering tournaments and a thriving miniature wargaming community, we run tabletop roleplaying games and have a wide selection of board games available for our play-all-day rate of only five dollars per player. We’re completely into nerd culture – we have a little library of comics for you to read while you listen to our weekly podcast. Our TV’s are always streaming twitch, speed runs and old school cartoons and best of all, we work really hard to make sure our store is inclusive and beneficial to the gaming community.

I recently moved to Brantford, I was searching for a place to play Magic the Gathering. What I found was a great place with a great group of people. MTG, Wargaming, and Board Games what more can you look for?

As i’m fairly new to this end of nerd culture, the Devil’s Bench has completely blown my expectations out of the water. Whenever that door opens its not long before a genuine smile and a hot cup of coffee are sent your way.

Slay dragons, tap mana, defend your troops – all at [db].

Every week, we host a podcast that has over 100 hours of conversation between our two hosts, Bill and Wyatt. The show often features guests from our local gaming scene, people we admire on the internet and whomever else we can dupe into talking to us for an hour. The show is focused on pop culture, gaming and every once in a while, the shared philosophies of life between the two over-thinking hosts.

The show has been running for about two years and, after a particularly damaging event with an unruly web server, most of the older episodes had to be archived here. Since then, all the newer episodes can be found on iTunes or any other popular podcatcher. We’re always looking for new guests or interesting stories. Got someone in mind? Contact us!

From our top 5 videogames of all time to the depths of world peace and solving hunger, the boys have been known to be honest and up front about the topics that arise out of the endless tangential conversations on The Benchcast. Tune in every week on our website or downloaded to your device to catch the next Smarties vs. M&M’s monthly argument.
