Armadillo Games was established in 2013, as a result of the board games and jigsaw puzzle sections outgrowing our sister store, Hi Jinx toy shop. Armadillo has rapidly gained the attention of residents and visitors alike, in and around the Bow Valley. The appeal stems from the large and diverse selection of games and puzzles and also the entertaining and creative staff members that work here.
At Armadillo we consider it is important to not only know what games people are looking for, but to also help them find new and exciting challenges to try. Taking positive and constructive customer feedback and some creative criticism, our store has developed into a Canmore destination for the classic (Monopoly), the weird (Kittens in a Blender), and the wonderful (Van Gogh Starry Skies puzzle).
Who says staffing is all work and no play? Here at Armadillo, the staff is readily encouraged to try out and learn our games in order to give helpful and enthusiastic feedback, and as much personal service with our customers as possible, to help them find that perfect game. There are always demos in store for customers to try, and a different new game featured each week too.
Armadillo is heavily involved in the local community; from donations to local charity auctions, Table Top Day Games, to collaborations with other local businesses to hosting game nights for families.
Every Friday night, we host Magic the Gathering for beginners and experts alike. Also, Armadillo has a plethora of games for rental which allows visitors to play their favourites, and for anyone to try out a new game.
