Welcome to Our New Website!

The Fantasy Shop, a place to go for all the freshest comics and games, was behind the times in a big way. Now, our website has taken a trip in the TARDIS and joined the 21st century!

You've found us in the same old place, www.fantasyshoponline.com, but now you can view the entire site on your mobile device. Each store has its own page to reflect its personality and point you in the right direction. Hopefully an easy-to-use and WAY more aesthetically-pleasing site  makes your friendly neighborhood comic shop that much more enjoyable!

The Fantasy Shop St. Charles has MOVED!

The St. Charles store has moved from it's old location in St. Charles Plaza to it's new location in the Dierberg's Bogey Hills plaza on Zumbehl.

The address is 2125 Zumbehl Rd. St. Charles, MO 63303 (however Google currenly points to the wrong point on their map when looking up the location so if you're looking for directions click on this LINK to get directions).

The hours will remain the same and the store will be the same giant size you've come to know and love.

Khans of Tarkir Game Day & A StarCity Invitational Qualifier

This weekend is Pro-Tour Khans of Tarkir and for the first time since 2012 a Standard Pro-Tour event will be played without Shocklands, Sphinx's Revelations, or Pack Rats. The rotation shakes more than just the standard metagame but also the way that Magic will work into the future as it will be the last time that a 3 set Block and a Core Set will all rotate out at the same time, thanks to the change in the way that Wizards will be releasing sets in the future. If you want to see what the future of Standard looks like you should see what the pros decide to play, and you can watch all of that HERE

But once the dust settles and the cards shuffle their last in Honolulu this weekend there will be more Magic to play. Because next weekend (10/18 - 10/19) is Khans of Tarkir Game Day. And all 4 of the Fantasy Shop locations will be hosting Game Day events as they usually do, but this time there is an additional reward beyond the full art foils for everyone who comes in the top 4 of their local Game Day event.

St. Charles will be running it's very first StarCity Invitational Qualifier on Sunday the 19th of October (the winner of which will get $250 in cash!). And if you place in the top 4 of one of the Game Day events then you get to play in the StarCity IQ event ... For free. That means that 16 lucky players who invest $5 in the event entry of the Game Day Event of their local shop and play hard and have luck fall their way will get to play in a $30 event for free! 

So you'll have the opportunity to test the field and make last minute adjustments after Game Day to make sure that you have the best chance to put your best foot forward during the SCGIQ.


Another innovation from The Fantasy Shop!
