About Us

Welcome to Gators Games and Hobby!!

We are a family owned business in Leavenworth, KS. We have been in business for over 30 years! Gators started as a video rental business in 1983, and slowly started morphing to table-top gaming in the mid-90's. By 2012, all video rentals were completely phased out due to the onslaught of streaming services. So instead, we focused more heavily on the gaming. Gators sells card singles from three major TCG companies - Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Pokemon. We run tournaments for all these card games in our shop on a weekly basis, along with at least half a dozen Dungeons and Dragons groups. We host board game nights, themed tournaments, and miniature painting classes - just to name a few events we run regularly. Gaming is our passion!

Duane and Jessie LaDuron are the owners and operators of Gators, alongside a very knowledgeable staff. Duane and Jessie have six children between them, so a family-friendly atmosphere is always at the front of their minds. Duane was an officer in the United States Army, and he has been a part of Gators since the very beginning. Jessie has been on the scene since about 2013, when they married. Jessie loves to craft and sew when she's not keeping up the bookkeeping for Gators, and you can often spot some of her creations on the shelf for sale! 
Gators is always changing and adapting, and we can't wait to see what new adventures unfold next in the gaming community!
