The team of enthusiastic people behind The Games Capital has been involved with the board game industry for a very long time... about 50 years in total! Previously The Games Capital was known as Mind Games Canberra, but now we are an independent store.
Business principal, Phil Davies, has owned and operated games stores in Albury, Geelong and Canberra under the Mind Games banner for almost 20 years. After visiting the Essen Game Fair in Germany in 2004, Phil became the guiding force behind the inaugural Australian Games Expo (now the Toy and Game Expo) with the aim of bringing a new era of board games to the Australian public.
Glenn Doyle manages The Games Capital's bricks and mortar store in Canberra and he's been helping customers for 18 years. Glenn travels to the Essen Game Fair in Germany every year to seek out the latest releases and keep right up to date with the games business. Glenn is also an active participant in the 'Magic: The Gathering' world, regularly organising events and tournaments.
