Store Information

Location and Background

The store is located at 200 SW State Street, Suite A & Suite B, just south of the intersection of 1st and State.
Arkham Games opened its doors on May 26, 2015 bringing a full-fledged game store to Ankeny, between Des Moines and Ames. Gaming communities have grown steadily since opening, while still keeping that friendly local game store feel.


The shop has changed ownership as of April 22nd, 2019. The store will remain more or less the same as before, but hopefully any changes will be only improvements for our customers as we grow bigger. We are always open to feedback from the community and appreciate your input.


Inventory & Products
Our inventory consists generally of TCG packs and singles, card games, board games, Warhammer model kits, Warhammer accessories, Citadel paints, D&D miniatures, D&D books, D&D cards, D&D accessories, and RPG books.
New product is constantly being stocked for allĀ  popular and new games. If we don’t carry something you’re after or you would like to make sure you can get a product from us when it comes out, you can always request an order from us for any item(s). It is possible we may not be able to get it in, but we can always try for you.


Game Room

Our game room is a large open space with big tables and plenty of chairs. The game room contains a public family restroom, cheap snacks and drinks for sale, free-to-play board and card games, and free-to-use terrain for miniature war gaming.
Our game room is always free to use for anyone; whether it’s to game in or hangout in. We welcome everybody to join us at Arkham to enjoy good company, good games, and a good time.
