Who are we?
Brokenvase Games was born out of hardship and the pandemic. When Covid-19 hit, mental health issues arose, people got isolated, and normality shifted. Started by a serial entrepreneur who loved the competitiveness of Trading Card Games, Brokenvase Games started out as a Pokemon Card trading retail business. Now it is the world's first IRL (In Real Life) Pokemon Card Battle Gym and Pokemon Cafe.
The founders at Brokenvase Games believe in connecting people through playing a fun and competitive card game. They believe in encouraging parents to put down their phones and take away the iPads and Switches, sit down with their children and have fun together. It's about community and fun. It's about a better human experience and connection. Brokenvase Games is also a one-stop-shop for all things Pokemon Trading Card Game - collecting and playing.
What started off as a father-son activity, has grown into a local family business of three generations! Professor Merv, his son Keon (Sumner Gym's youngest Elite Trainer), his wife - Kat, and even Keon's grandparents are all involved in the business!
Over time, we gathered and grew an awesome staff team with many different skills and abilities! The Brokenvase Games team is more like our extended family really.

Our core values are:
