The Game Theory Original

Bring Your Skills to Duraleigh

The store at Raleigh is a stronghold of strategy and intrigue, just waiting for fun warriors to walk through the door, crank up a game, and congregate.

Overview & Offerings

Ok, you've probably heard about the ginormous game selection, and the super gaming space to lay out your battle lines and get to playing, but we think Raleigh has something extra, something that an established original can only boast of. You feel it in the air, it's an apparent love, a passion for games that's noticeable in staff and customers alike. It's that feeling you only get when surrounded by friends and like minded people, sharing tables, enjoying entertaining moments, around the great games we crave. That's why Game Theory was created.

Vibes Past & Present

Game Theory on Duraleigh, Rd. hasn't always been located there. We first opened the store back in 2013, off Blue Ridge Parkway in a somewhat smaller store space in the backside of a strip mall. Regardless of the space, we have always strived to promote a welcoming place to game, and provide our community with nearly every product and resource that's available on the market. Flash forward, three locations later, our original Raleigh store still caters to hundreds of dedicated gamers each week, creating memories and friends around the games we know and love so well.
