Labyrinth- November Store of the Month

Blue Orange Games is lucky to partner with a fantastic bunch of retailers who are passionate about their businesses and supportive of our games. We want to do more to recognize the stores and individuals that make our mission possible. That’s how our monthly spotlight on an outstanding Blue Orange Games retailer came about!labyrinth

We are pleased to announce that Labyrinth Games and Puzzles in Washington, D.C. is our Store of the Month for November! Xavier and Renaud, from our sales team, nominated this store because of their dedication to their local community and their passion for creating fun times with their customers.

We have all experienced that ‘last minute I need a gift moment’ once or maybe many times in our lives. It seems when that rush and panic sets in, there is not a fitting gift anywhere on the shelf, so usually we grab any gift and get on our way. However,  Kathleen Donahue, owner of Labyrinth Games and Puzzles, was not satisfied with this. After searching and searching for a birthday gift for her son, Kathleen had the bright idea to open up a store of her own.


Labyrinth is not just any game store, as you can tell by the sophisticated name. It is a store that connects the community with one another through not just any game, but brainy games. While the store is tailored to many adult likes, there are also a huge selection for kids ages 1 to 100. If you want to work your brain and have fun, I would say Labyrinth is the place for you.

Kathleen takes pride in her D.C. community. Her store is located on Capitol Hill where you get a small town feel, but are surrounded by a big city. The small town feel could be attributed to Kathleen herself. She works to raise money to donate games to local schools and hosts game nights almost every night of the week. Some of these game nights are geared towards teenagers, while others are geared towards adults! Game nights can include magic shows, role play, and sometimes a Blue Orange game night.

The happiness of Kathleen’s customers is why she is in the retail business, but the buying power is not always in her hands. She will host game nights with vendors, such as Blue Orange Games, and have the customers act as buyers. Sometimes these ‘step-in’ buyers are teenagers and sometimes they are adults. Whatever games they think will sell and be enjoyed by the D.C. crowd, Kathleen is happy to purchase. This tactic may seem crazy to some business folk, but to Kathleen it makes sense, this is the best way to insure that the customers receive the games that they want.

Whether you are a Senator or just a teenager looking for an awesome brainy toy, Labyrinth is the place for you. You will find only games that challenge your brain, but will also put a smile on your face!

The whole team at Blue Orange Games would like to thank Labyrinth’s team for believing in our games and for creating rewarding, educational experiences for their community. Congrats!
