Amazing comic and board game store. They have old games, new games, D&D, miniatures, paint and accessories, Magic the card game, Pokimon, old and new comics, collectables and more. Staff is super friendly. Been around for a very long time. Has free boardgame library you can play in house or rent for a week. Daily game sessions from MTG, Pokimon, Warhammer, Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinfer and more. Did I mention all the dice? So many dice. Buy and sell collectable cards and comics. Fun to browse.

Castle Perilous is a wonderful store here in Carbondale! I always looking forward to making a trip here when I come back for school, they have a great selection of DnD books as well as figurines and paints! I've bought a majority of my books here and I hope to continue doing so both in person and online. The staff here are always nice and the inside of the store has a chill, cozy feeling to it

What a nice little gem. I was just passing by and spend about an hour browsing the shop. It’s definitely more of a Gaming Shop however they do have a nice selection of new comics and back issues. One major tip to consider is BROWSE THEIR BACK ISSUES, they are all cover priced, you will find some keys. Also, make sure you look at the comics around the boarder of the ceilings. There are some great early issues of ASM and FF.
