Tucked quietly into an unassuming strip mall in Denville is a veritable gaming heaven: 2,500 square feet of cards, toys, collectibles, miniatures, gaming gear- plus fellow fans to compete with, comfortable chairs and snacks to boot.

The spot is All In One Collectibles (973-664-0912, www.allinonecollectibles.com), a shop and tournament site for gaming fans of all ages, whether their preference is Yu-Gi-Oh!, World of Warcraft, Magic the Gathering or HeroClix-a chess-like strategy game that’s one of the hottest current trends.

Owner Michael Root knows his audience well-he’s part of it, after all. “I’ve been involved in collecting sports cards since I was a kid and in gaming for about the past 12 years,” he says.

Scott D’Agostino of Jefferson visits weekly to play HeroClix with a group ranging in age from the early teens to over 40. “The store is a great environment,” he says. “Everybody’s very friendly here.”
