The following article was put together by one of the gamers in our community that frequently plays at the Spokane store. Our hope was to be able to post it before the Evergreen Tabletop Expo on June 20-21, but were unable to get it posted. It is full of information that can still be useful to many X-Wing players out there. We are so grateful to Jonathan G. and all of his hard work on this piece.
Come geek out with us! On May 4, stop by your local Uncle’s Games and mention “May the 4th be with you!” for 10% off any Star Wars items in the store.
Want to take it up a level? Come into the store wearing Star Wars apparel (t-shirt, ball cap, etc) for 15% off any Star Wars items in the store.
Up to totally make our day? Come into the store wearing full Star Wars character costume and get 25% off any Star Wars items in the store!
And yes this includes X-Wing, Armada, and all other Star Wars themed board games, keychains, and other products in our stores.
And “May the 4th be with you!”

The 2014 Uncle’s Grand Adventure was crazy! The Uncle traveled all over the world making stops in the Amazon, Stonehedge, Beijing, China, Afghanistan, and even as far away as Cloud City where he found the Millennium Falcon!
This year was all about seeing the world’s biggest items. The Uncle made a point to see the world’s largest ball of twine, the world’s largest buffalo, and a really, really big chair.
This year we have chosen 5 winners to each receive a $100 gift card! Continue Reading

The Uncle has been the face of our company since 1995. He is a proud reminder to our us of our family first mentality. Recently he’s undergone a digital enhancement. The original Uncle was a hand drawn work of art from one of our employees, but as we move forward into a digital age it is important to give him a sharper more vibrant look.
The crisp, bold new logo speaks to the direction Uncle’s Games is heading while still preserving the tradition of the Auntie’s Books and Uncle’s Games. As you can see from the side-by-side comparison this is not a logo change. The enhancements simply give our logo an improved, more profound appearance.
