GameClub Boardgame Store

GameClub Boardgame Store



Gémklub has been a club for 30 years and a game for 10 years: The first game club was launched 30 years ago, and Gémklub Kft. was established 15 years ago with game development and trade as its core activity. The ecommerce store that had been successful for a decade has been completely renewed with the help of Magento CMS.

The new ecommerce store capitalises on and expands the opportunities offered by the Magento ecommerce store engine to maximum effect. The most committed team members established Gémklub Első Magyar Játékkiadó Kft (Game Club First Hungarian Game Publisher) in 2001, but genuine business activity was added to the non-profit activity only in 2006, when Hungary’s first game ecommerce store and professional website was launched. Today, in addition to the ecommerce store the company has 3 toy shops of its own, is engaged in the wholesale trade of logic and board games, and also has a game publisher.
