[Archive] bad news for my gaming


My friend informed me that while i was gone on my hunnymoon, the local Games Workshop store is closing.

my exact words, “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

sam’s exact words will not be posted due to exessive profanity

Kera foehunter:

Well you could always open your own store !!!

Then both of you could have a cool store and work !!! every day you could work with the one you love !!! wow how Romantic !!! xoxo


You could always use it to start a gaming club, then you could use non-GW miniatures too.


And there are many brilliant miniatures not made by GW!

Another advantage would that you will be your own master and not a GW slave!

I have an apartment in a small college town. It’s not tiny, nor is is that big. It’s a nice size.

I have a table for gaming set up, as Platteville has nothing for game stores… and the closest town with one (Dubuque, 30 miles one way) has a horrible store. The next closest is Madison (70 miles one way).

Running it out of my place I have gotten about 6 people to start playing in the local area.

Even a nice set up out of where you live, can help a lot. Now you just need to meet fellow gamers, or get friends into it.

Kera foehunter:

there are several stores around me. But to have a group of people come over and play is great! until you do something stupid then your a god!! no one will forget

Thane Godri GoblinSlayer:

Like everyone else said perhaps start your own club or just start playing games at home with your friends. It is not that difficult to build a gaming table. Just really a big enough table with a green table cloth or something similar.


asheira, where do you live? You can always check GW’s website and find the nearest LFG store that carries their stuff. Or, as others have suggested, play in your haouse.
