review rating 5  Passing through Fargo, my son and I decided to check out a local Magic the Gathering store. We were not disappointed by Paradox. The card selection was amazing. We were looking for a few old cards for commander decks and they had them all. The worker, whom’s name we did not catch, meticulously reviewed the card quality of our purchases and graded and priced them respectively. I haven’t witnessed this type of attention to card grading at my local game stores. As the name would imply, the comic book section seemed to take up about 1/3 of the store and looked quite respectable. They also had a nice wide array of other games. The store was packed with players running D&D campaigns and some other random board games. Nice to see this kind of activity, I only wished we could have played on an mtg event day. We will definitely be back anytime we are in Fargo.

review rating 5  As the name implies, this is a comic book store and a games store. Card games like Magic, comics of all sorts. The staff was courteous and friendly. They help when a patron needs help and keep a respectful distance when it's clear the patron just wants to dig through boxes of back issues. . This is a modern store, very open and well-lit. It's in a very friendly part of downtown where the parking sucks. You'll likely need to park a block or two away, but the walk is never really a drag. . This store is as all-ages oriented as a comic book store should be. They've got Golden Books as well as kid-aimed comics. And candy.

review rating 3  Not to thrilled with the service. They treat people who buy far better than people who come there to do business to sell. So, I prefer other locations due to this reason.
