Ben and Aisha smiling together at TechTown in Detroit

For years, we talked about opening a game shop. We'd show up to our friends' annual New Years party, spend three or four straight days gaming with wonderful people, and come back excited to build a space where we could share that experience with a community. 

At Opal Grove Games, anyone can safely have an amazing time playing really awesome games. Our focus is on building trust and community. We want you here with us, whether you're a lifelong gamer or a total newbie, whether you prefer some gentle co-op or crave glorious personal victory!

Aisha Blake is a software engineer, singer, and dog lover. She's your point of contact for partnerships, workshops, and private events.

Ben Lippi is an engineer as well as a GM (game master) with over 15 years' experience. Ask them about special orders and manufacturing.

We also LOVE teaching! Keep an eye out for our workshops and open game nights & reach out to schedule a private board game or RPG session.
