The Dork Den is a friendly local gaming store located in downtown Mankato, MN.

We’re a tabletop gaming and comic book shop specializing in board games, card games, graphic novels, comics, role-playing games and tactical miniature tabletop games.  But we’re more than just a place to purchase hobby games, we’re a haven for gamers and readers to meet, discuss, and share their love for their favorite nerdy game or comic. You don’t need to be an avid Magic player or have an army of miniatures to enjoy what we at The Dork Den have to offer. You’ll always be welcomed, whether you’re a veteran in nerddom or taking your first steps into this awesome world of games and comics!

Good Grades Discount

Every time you get your final grades for a term, if you receive at least B’s on all of your classes, we’ll take your GPA, multiply it by 10, and discount one item at the store by that much.
