Checkmate Games and Hobbies has been serving Northwest Ohio’s gaming community since 2011.

It has been our mission to provide games and events for people of all ages and interests. Our knowledgeable staff strives to know the many games we carry so we may guide you to your next favorite game. We provide professionally run events to entertain you, and will be happy to talk to you about any game we carry. If you come in looking for a game we don’t have, we’ll be happy to order it in for you.


Located at the corner of Central and McCord, we are proud to be members of both the Toledo and Sylvania neighborhoods. We are in the plaza with Waffle House, Paddy Jacks, Domo Sushi and Frogtown Johnnies. We have several restaurants in close proximity to keep you fueled while gaming. We also share the plaza with JC’s Comics N’ More!

Our address is 6725 W. Central Ave. Suite L, Toledo, OH 43617


Our hours of operation are currently:

Monday - Saturday 1:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Occasionally we will be open extended hours for special events, such as Magic: The Gathering Prereleases, so if you aren’t sure, just give us a call.
