The Dragon is Coming!

It's about freakin' time

We are hard at work to bring an awesome new game store to historic downtown Plainfield, Illinois. But we can’t do it alone. We need your help. We want The Wandering Dragon to be the best it can be. We want it to be what you want it to be, so tell us.

The Wandering Dragon Game Shoppe will not only be a great place to buy the best in hobby gaming, but we will also have a game room with gaming tables to host any events you can think of. We are looking for friendly, knowledgeable folks to help us run events. Our Event Calendar is currently empty. Help us fill it in. Just tell us what you need and we will do our best to make sure it happens.

We love this crazy, awesome hobby and we can’t wait to finally bring it to beautiful downtown Plainfield. Please email with any questions, comments or suggestions. We look forward to hearing from you, but especially gaming with you! See ya in a few weeks!


  • That is great news guys. Congrats!

  • The long awaited store is coming! Can’t wait for opening day! The logo looks really great!! Congratulations!!

  • So happy for the three of you! Yeah!!

  • I am very happy for all of you. I can’t wait to see the place. Let me know if you need help setting things up. I am more than happy to come by and shelve games or sweep or maybe open some new games and learn them. You know whatever! Congrats!

  • Congratulations! This is a total surprise. Let me me know if you need and help.

  • As I was driving through downtown Plainfield this morning, I saw the sign for your upcoming store, an I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to see a game shop is coming to Plainfield! I’m a fan of many types of board, card, and dice games, as well as a game creator myself. The prospect of having a place in my hometown to game with others and pick up new games is thrilling! Can’t wait to stop in and help build a dedicated group of Wandering Dragon enthusiasts!

    • What do you play? I intend to bring Pandemic and 7 Wonders to the table as well as other favorites.

      • I’m an eclectic gamer, but I lean toward mid-range strategy games (I love FFG and games like Small World).

        I haven’t played Pandemic but I own its sister game, Forbidden Island, and the family loves it. 7 Wonders is brilliant. Love me some deck builders like Dominion, Ascension, or Rune Age.

        Most recently, I played a 3 player game of Epic Spell Wars and had a BLAST!

      • The owners are big Dominion fans and 7 Wonders fans. You’ll be right at home at this store. If you like Forbidden Island, you and the family will love pamdemic. The expansion called On the Brink is a must have for the game too. When the store opens, I intend to demo pandemic and hopefully hole a tournament.

      • Did I hear someone say Ascension? That’s my cue to come in. 🙂 Hi Scorp! We are just as excited as you are for this store’s opening day. It’s about time there is a Game Store by our neighborhood. I will definitely see you out there and hope to play some Ascension, 7 Wonders, or whatever game hits the table. See you there too Bob!! Looking forward to some great gaming in July and beyond at the Dragon!!

  • We’re looking forward to your store open! My name is Lee and I help run a gaming club near your neck of the woods.

    I’d love to steer as much traffic in your direction as I can. We’d be happy to help fill in your event calendar too 😉 Looking forward to meeting you all soon.
