507-386-1406 | Website
Having the distinction of being the only entity on MankatoLIFE listed as both a shop and an attraction, Dork Den is the number one game shop in southern Minnesota and the nerdiest nerd store south of the Twin Cities!
Specializing in non-electronic entertainment such as board games, comics, miniature gaming, collectibles (e.g. POP figures), and of course card games like Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon. If you’re in the market for something that’s fun and doesn’t need a power outlet, come down to Riverfront and Elm and see what’s available!
