Battleground Games & Hobbies
Battleground is a retail gaming store that specializes in board games, card games, miniature games, and role-playing games. We carry all of the top-selling products from each of these categories and strive to provide the highest level of service to the ever-growing community of gamers that have supported us since we opened in 2002. Our second location in Plainville, MA opened in September of 2010. In 2016, it became clear that we had outgrown our Plainville location, and so we relocated that store to nearby Norton, MA.
The majority of space in each store is given over to areas for people to play the games they love. We have six 4′ x 6′ gaming tables in the front of the store that are available for people to use whenever they want. Rows of seating are also available for card players and board gamers. At our Abington location we even have an enclosed game room for private role-playing or group games. All of Battleground’s play space is free for anyone to use for gaming during all hours we are open.
Battleground also hosts a variety of tournaments and special events for those who enjoy playing their favorite games competitively. We have a very robust and ever-growing Magic: The Gathering crowd and our Friday and Saturday night tournaments are a great place for new players or veterans to try out their standard decks or enter one of our draft tournaments.
Miniature games are also very popular at the store. Warhammer, Warmachine, Heroclix, Battletech, Dystopian Wars, Malifaux, and more, all see frequent play. Tables and terrain are always available for customers to use.
Our message boards are a great place to connect with other players with similar interests; if you’re new to the store, make sure to pop in and introduce yourself there.
Battleground also supports a large base of role-players for a variety of different games. Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Star Wars, White Wolf, to name just a few, are strongly represented. Games are played every night of the week and there is always a need for new players and game masters. The Battleground staff will do its best to help direct you to a group of players that will make for a good match. Again, the message boards are a great place to look for others who seek to put a gaming group together.
