Well, at least the Store was nice.

BlueMoon and I went down to Louisville today for the 2nd round of 'Ard Boyz. I wish I could say it was as fun as the first round, but I really can't. Part of that is GW's fault for the lousy missions, and some of that is the store's fault for bad terrain setup. But despite the generally good sportsmanship all around, I really only enjoyed the first game. I'll write up the details in a later post, but I did want to share some pictures of what has to be the single largest game store I've ever seen.

I really didn't know what to expect when I went down. I grew up in Louisville and had been to Pet Shop Comics' old store about 10 years ago. But since then they've moved into a huge 9000 square foot space. It's actually 2 storefronts with a connecting door. One side is for retail, while the other is purely for gaming. So not only did they have many more tables than we needed, but they also had benches to eat at and some comfy chairs, plus a sofa.

Here's some closeups of the city table up front:

Their GW stock wasn't anything special, but they did carry a full range of Battlefoam trays, which I bought 2 of. They also had a very nice historical WW2 section in addition to tons of different comics. So if you're ever down that way, check them out. I was very impressed.


  1. You have so much room in the American midwest. No wargame shop in England could be that big as the cost per sq metre would bankrupt them.


  2. Heh, there's not many American stores that could handle that large a space either. It helped, I suppose, that they were located in the middle of an outlying town that looked like it had seen better days.
