Local Store Highlight: Alpha Games

1 comment


Alpha Games is a destination gaming store, just off the A143 and conveniently placed near to Bury St Edmunds, Diss, Thetford and Stowmarket. Based out of town, Alpha Games is able to offer a dedicated gaming centre with excellent facilities and enough room to stock popular ranges extensively.


As well as being one of the largest Bolt Action stockists in the area, the store also has Games Workshop products, X-Wing, Star Wars Imperial Assault, Army Painter brushes, Vallejo Model Air, Tanks!, Gale Force Nine, Star Wars Armada and board games too. We are also happy to order any other Warlord ranges in directly for you – just ask!  (Antares anyone?)

The store has plans for regular tournaments for many game systems and will support them as best they can. They will also have themed game nights running throughout the week, including an evening dedicated to their Bolt Action club the Alpha Pathfinders – named after the store itself and local history surrounding regarding the Second World War. Please see our Facebook page for further information.


Alongside the expertise and passion of the staff for all types of tabletop gaming, the store also hopes to become a painting and hobby hub. Alpha Games will be delivering painting classes and private tuition, calling upon award winning miniature painters within their ranks and from further afield. Watch this space!


Except for tournaments and special events, the tables are free to use; all they ask is that you support the store in any way you can and that you consider their other customers too. Alpha Games has terrain that can be used and are always looking to expand the selection they have, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer!

The store is open late on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well as those days we run events on.

If you are not local to the store, you can still take advantage of our competitive prices and superlative customer service through our website – – which offers free economy postage on orders over £30 and same day dispatch for all orders placed before 3pm.
