Mission Fun & Games
Useful Information

Meet the owner

Board games have been a central part of life for John Engel and his wife Tracy. John even proposed to Tracy on a Scrabble board. “It took three hours, a bottle of wine and I had to cheat, but it was worth it,” says John. Their love of games and passion for business led them to opening up Mission Fun & Games in 1990.

At first Mission Fun & Games was a video game and movie rental store. Then, in 1993 when Magic: The Gathering was released, John and Tracy saw its potential and became one of the first stores in the area to carry it. The popularity of collectible card games and trading card games led them to move away from the movie rentals and video games and more heavily into board and card games.

By 1997 Mission Fun & Games had taken over a 2,400 sq. ft. former restaurant and converted it into an eye-catching castle. They now stock thousands of games and host tournaments and events throughout the year for the growing fan community. “We love to have customers storm the castle,” says John. “The former lounge of the restaurant is now our games room, and has a library of over 700 games.”
