About us

At The Loaded Die we are focused on one thing, expanding the hobby of board gaming.
We are bringing back game night! What started out as a board game focused game store has expanded all across Metro Detroit.

We have been teaching people how to play board games (professionally) since 2014, and we are good at it. If you are interested in learning more about board games we recommend attending one of our game nights.

We have installed satellite libraries all around Metro Detroit where we host a weekly board game night. We believe the only thing that's better than playing board games is drinking beer while playing board games.

Join us for board game night and see why board games are cool again.

We also sell board games. We have a hand-selected inventory of what we think are essential to any board game collection, but we don't carry everything. If you are interested in a game that isn't in stock you can special order it through our online portal.

If you are looking to save some money on your board game purchases you should check out our membership program.
