Ahh. That 'New Store' smell



Sandwyrm, Protem, and I went to the NEW shop in town, Saltire games (saltiregames.com). It's not really too far from where I live, and has good gamespace available. It even has that 'new stripmall' smell to it (like 'new car' smell, but with paint, drywall, and carpet smells). (where Saltire's at)

I don't think they've got much of a 40K group courted. Several of the guys from the North Game Preserve will probably trickle over. I like the North GP, but there's not really space for gaming, which is too bad. They ARE a Mall store, and keep up appearances for random people filtering in at the 'Fashion Mall' as the Keystone mall is dubbed.

I'm pondering approaching the management about getting a league going, or maybe even running a tourney. I've not run a tourney, and it would be a good way to get people to actually come to a new store, use entry fees to get store credit, and see what the store can do for us. I think between Sandwyrm, protem, and I we could come up with enough terrain for 5-6 tables. Even if some of the terrain is my models, or random strange looking things we paint up a bit with spray adhesive and sand.

next: Sandwyrm goes backdoor on vets, or... hot chimera love

  1. I guess the new store smell is probably better than the old game store smell once those certain odory gamers have been by. My wife claims a lot of different game stores smell so she cannot go in them.

  2. The gamers around here are actually a pretty clean lot. We did have one stinker, but he got himself banned from just about every store in the city. We're actually wondering how long it will take him to find this new place.

  3. Sorry I haven't been into the North GP over the past few weeks, but this seems like something to look at? Address?

  5. i'm already working with them to let me run some 40k tournaments and to possibly get a league going. at this point we need regulars first, and then we can start spreading the news.

    i've got enough terrain for 4 tables if needed, and they tell me the store is currently working on more. i'm going to join the warmachine/hordes league they're starting in a couple of weeks and see if i can get those guys interested in some hot 40k action.

  6. It's behind the Burger King. There's a pizza place on one side of the strip mall and a pub on the other. Which Farmpunk and I considered the best feature of the location. Play games, discuss over beers. :)

  8. By the Emperor! That is much closer to where I live than the Fashion Mall! That's about 15-20 minutes as opposed to 30-35. No more interstate to 40k for me!
