Cheers to Twenty-Five Years!
To everybody that has come to our shop and enjoyed what we’ve created: Our success is due to you and the fact that TableTop has become your happy place. It is a huge honor and responsibility to be that for so many crazy, diverse people.
We are not just a place to buy stuff, we are a bomb shelter from the real world.
Thank you for building such a wonderful community of people with us. We owe the last twenty-five years to you and look forward to the next twenty-five.
-Phil and Lynn Kilgore
In celebration of the last quarter century and looking forward to the next, we are excited to share several exciting announcements! Continue reading to find out about our 25th Anniversary events, sales, merch, and news.
After 25 years of growth and expansion, we are proud to announce the launch of our new company emblem as part of the ongoing evolution of our company’s brand. We created this emblem to partner with our current logo, to reflect who we are today, and symbolize our future. After careful consideration and deliberation, we settled on something that is modern and embodies our gaming community.
Like our name, this emblem begins and ends with the heart of our hobby – the table. Here at our table, we bring together what we are all about: the games, the players, and the community. Like a family crest, this emblem proudly proclaims who we are: a welcome haven for gamers and non-gamers alike.
We hope that you look forward to TableTop Game & Hobby’s future as much as we do.

Grace Under Pressure
Welcome to the Bottom of the World…
At 1500 feet below sea level, the pressure is six hundred pounds per square inch… far more than is needed to crush the life out of you. It is there that the RSV Wallaby, an experimental undersea exploratory vessel is being put through its paces.
Crewed by a diverse troop of experts in their fields, this test voyage is crucial to pleasing the investors and proving that the Wallaby can do what her engineer’s promised. Already behind schedule and over budget, it will be critical that the crew can exhibit Grace Under Pressure.
Only 8 spots are available!
Friday Night Paint Fight
A fun and wacky painting competition!
The competition will last exactly two hours, with a short judging period and awards to follow.
Each competition has a unique theme, and awards are given based on how well the painters incorporate this theme and the provided materials. We provide the models, theme-specific paints, and other unique items to incorporate into the model painting.
Painters can bring ONLY 5 paints with them and must bring brushes.
