It’s holiday shopping crunch time right now, and we thought we’d take a moment to do a shoutout for all of the local Champaign-Urbana businesses who are sponsors or friends of CUDO Plays. If you’ve never been to these great spots, check them out, and maybe get a gift for someone you love!
Adventures in Time and Space
Our good friends with the great escape rooms. Book a room today and create awesome memories with your friends or family.
Great art supplies and arty gifts of all kinds.
A convenient place for all your making/building materials.
The local printing experts. They can whip up anything you need, from posters to business cards to stickers.
Dr. G’s BrainWorks
Not just a game store, they’ve got puzzles, science kits and more! A great place for gifts for kids or other smarties.
G Mart Comics
Comic books! And they’re having a sale on comic pre-orders until the end of December.
Gopher Mafia Games
Board games, miniatures games, RPGs and more!
Illini Plastics Supply
Professional plastic fabrication for projects of any size.
Lincoln Square Mall
Sure, there are a few specific places inside Lincoln Square that we mention in this post, but we wanted to mention the whole mall as well since we love it for events. If you haven’t been recently, check it out and explore!
Live Action Games
Retro videogames and videogame memorabilia to suit all tastes.
Catering, pop-up bars/lounges, and awesome event venues.
Delicious pizza, and also just a great place to chill.

A beautiful space to have some beer, and maybe buy a growler for the beer-lover on your list.

Planes, trains, automobiles and lots of other fun stuff!
Spark Museum + Play Cafe
A place for both kids and parents to have fun.
A huge selection of the latest board games and modern classics.
The folks who made our beautiful CUDO Plays t-shirts. Get some shirts of your own made (and also, if you don’t have your own CUDO Plays shirt yet, talk to us at our next event).
Finally, we love our local libraries! Both Champaign Public and Urbana Free are great places and we host events and collaborate with both of them. Both have books for sale through their friends of the library organizations, check out what they got! Also, if you’re in a generous mood this holiday season, your local library is a fantastic place to give a donation.
