Welcome, welcome! We are so pleased you have found us! Clearly, you came to our site looking for Board Games, RPGs, or some cool accessories, so, it means a lot to us that you have chosen to learn about us!
Who are we? Here we are!
That’s me, I’m Nick. 👋 My favourite Board Games are Terraforming Mars, Brass Birmingham, and Race for the Galaxy. I have been a Dungeon Master since AD&D all the way through 5E and have a love of all types of RPGs – Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, World of Darkness, 10 Candles, and Vampire: The Masquerade (just to name a few).
This one is known as Steve. He tried to convince me to put a picture of a goblin up here, and that should tell you everything you need to know 😆. Board Games and miniature painting are his truest passions. His favourite Board Games are Scythe, Blood Rage, and Twilight Imperium 4. As for paints, he has recently fallen in love with Scale75 (and honestly, they’re beautiful, so I don’t blame him). Painting the minis in Board Games has been his favourite type of project, but he has been known to paint the odd miniature that catches his fancy.
And this is Grandma Lulu. She kindled Steve’s passion for board games when he was very young, and well into his adulthood. We named our shop after her in loving memorial. She was truly an amazing woman. And though she is not physically with us, we know that she is watching over us, guiding us to create something amazing.
So, it’s just the two of us here. Yep, you read that right. Just two folks with a huge passion for all things tabletop who decided to open a shop 3 weeks before a global pandemic. (We have great timing 😆) But, as you can see, we made it through (phew)! And that is completely due to our amazing community, both in-store and online. We can’t even express how amazing y’all are. We love you. That’s why we ship out a handwritten note and some candy in every order – we want you to know that we care about you, even if we’ve never met, even if you’ve only ordered with us through a screen, we care, and we want your experience to be amazing, no matter where you are.
And that’s what led us to open Lulu Games!
Games are such an amazing part of our human culture. Games bring people together. There’s a sense of belonging games bring that I’m not sure anything else can compare to. Through games we find our strengths, our joys, new ways of thinking, new friends, and sometimes we find even more. If you couldn’t tell by now, games are very close to my heart. I could prattle on for hours about how tied into our history and daily lives games are, but I won’t bore you 😅. Though, if you ever want to just *talk* about how amazing games are, shoot us an email!
I’m actually serious. We are 100% part of the gaming community ourselves. That’s why we strive to only source the best quality stuff we can find, and take great care in packaging your items up before shipping out. We want you to be pleased and ready to enjoy your purchases without any worries.
That’s pretty much all I’ve got! TLDR: it’s just the two of us, we named the store after Grandma Lulu, we love games just like you do, we care about you, and we want you to be happy.
