We love tabletop games and we want to showcase the benefits of playing games as an adult. We want to build a strong & social community in the UAE and share our love for games to new people. Tabletop gaming is an interactive and social experience that activates your brain in ways other entertainment mediums can not. People connect more with each other when engaged in a fun activity together. It’s a chance to unplug from modern technology and have fun. The board game industry is growing and we want to show people that there is so much more to the hobby than Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit. There is a game for everyone.
Back to Games is the UAE’s first retail shop that specialises in the sale of modern board and card games. We proudly offer a wide variety of North American and European tabletop games embracing various themes. You will enjoy countless hours of excitement and fun with family and friends of all ages while playing one or more of our exceptional products.
Our passion is to develop and expand a sustainable and entertaining tabletop gaming culture in the UAE. In store, a welcoming and enthusiastic team will be at the forefront, guiding you on your captivating journey into the world of gaming. Alongside our shop in Boutik Mall, Al Reem Island, backtogames.com offers the convenience of online shopping and features extensive product information for a wide array of tabletop games. By providing this complete service, we will stop at nothing to ensure the UAE’s community is ‘Reliving FUN together’.
Geeky Lizard is owned by Omar Ahmad Sharif, a 31 year-old Emarati. As a child, he was interested in hobby gaming but never got the chance to pursue it, as it was not established properly in his country until much later.
Growing up, Omar was known for his artistic and ‘geeky’ hobbies. He always wanted a place where hobby gamers can meet and play the games they all enjoy. May it be comic books, table top miniature wargaming, role playing, or card games, if you're a geek, Geeky Lizard and its owner Omar welcomes you!

Our aim is to provide a community hub and one-stop-shop for all hobby gamers in the UAE. We are supporting local gaming communities and with 200+ events organized every year we have been successful in ensuring their growth and development.
