Over the Brick strives to be your go-to shop for everything needed for your next gaming session, whether that be board games, miniatures, roleplaying games, card collectible games, painting and terrain supplies, and so much more. We carry a large inventory for our online community and also host gamers at our new store in Kirkland, Washington, with a focus on competitive pricing, fair shipping, and friendly service.
This is a family business, run by a small but passionate team of gamers, so we want you to feel welcome here. Feel free to ask us any questions or recommendations, because we’re eager to share our knowledge and love of gaming. With us, it is conversations, not sales pitches.
If you’re local to the Kirkland, WA area, we invite you to hang out with us, play games with us, paint with us, and join in on some of our events! We’re settling into our new location, so we’ve begun filling out our weeks with in-store tournaments, game nights, paint nights, and other fun shenanigans to come. Check out our schedule and see if there’s something that piques your interest.
There are also several ways you can reach us. We’ve just started an Over the Brick Discord Channel where you can ask questions, get latest store news and promotions, discuss everything gaming with fellow gamers, and meet folks looking for gaming groups. It’s rather simple at the moment, but we’re excited to build it together with you.
If “Over the Brick” seems like an unusual name for a local game store, then you’re right, because it had an unusual beginning. Over the Brick started in 2014 as an online specialty retailer of Lego bricks, but rather than the usual inventory of Lego sets, we catered to fans with specific brick needs. Needed a particular brick from that one set that released in 2007 and is no longer being manufactured? Or did you need a thousand pieces of a specific brick for that passion project you were working on? If so, we were there to serve you. This notion of going “above and beyond” for the brick was Over the Brick’s humble start.
Over time, we expanded into the tabletop world – another hobby we were geeky and gungho about, and it eventually became our focus. Though we moved away from bricks into board, the name Over the Brick stuck, and we can’t deny how it became amusingly prophetic. The irony is not lost on us, and we embrace it and still have a chuckle about it!
The next milestone for the store involved a different kind of brick: we opened our first brick and mortar store in Kenmore, WA in 2020. This was our first home where we welcomed gamers face to face. In a sub-1000 square foot corner of a shopping mall on the second floor, we gamed, grew, and weathered a global public health crisis. It had just enough space for four tables to host our first tournaments; teeny in size but mighty in spirit, it served us well.
Fast forward to July 2022, we’ve moved into an exciting new space that’s bigger and brighter. At our new location in Kirkland, WA, we’ve expanded in many facets, with more gaming spaces, more products on display, a greater inventory selection - we’re even happy to say that we’ve got the largest variety of paints and painting supplies in the Puget Sound area. With this space we’re not only able to host our local community and neighbors, but to also serve our online community with more efficient fulfillment. We also have room now to host more tournaments, events, and instore promotions. We’re excited for this new chapter, to say the least!
So, that’s us, we’re Over the Brick - more than just your everyday brick and mortar FLGS. We did consider coining the term Friendly Local and Online Game Store, but “FLOGS” just didn’t sound right. But whether online or in-store, know that we’re here to help.
Thanks for supporting us.
Over the Brick is a family business, run by a small team of gamers, each with unique industry interests and expertise to make a well-rounded party. We’ve even got a bard (more on that later)! This means if you’ve got a question, one (or more) of us will always be able to help.
This section will soon have profiles of each of our crew members à la character sheets, we just need to wrangle them down long enough in order to take their photos, so check back soon for that update.
You may have seen a certain purple critter adorning all our online presences. This adorable creature is both our logo and our mascot! There is a problem, though – they don’t have a name! We have big plans to create and build this little cephalopod’s story but we want the community’s help to do it. We’ll have more on that later, but as a start, feel free to start brainstorming some names to add to our shortlist.
