Just curious as to what type of store do people mostly prefer. Dedicated Game Stores or Comic stores that have put aside space for Games?.
The Local Game store I go to, while nice, suffers from being a comic store and having only a few gaming tables for wargamers crammed in a corner. As a person who travels all over and gets to see different types of stores. I honestly prefer stores that are more dedicated to gamers.
I realize for the store owners who are business owners they have to do what is profitable. To all the gamers though. What do you prefer? Or does it matter?
Also do you prefer stores that have mainly open gaming nights,where you have a little bit of everything going on, or stores that set aside different days/nights each week where they preserve their gaming space for people only playing certain games?
Obviously Tournaments are special events.
One of my favorite stores that I used to go to when I as younger was open gaming mainly. This was back in the 90s. I remember they held this WFB giant campaign, on Saturday People would come in throughout the day and plot their movement on a HUGE world map the Store Owner campaign creator had made *hex map* poster size. Then as the day went on if you hung out people would find out if they encountered any other players armies or encounters. They would have all week to fight any battles that needed to fought though. They were not locked into coming in one day to doing it. There were always people there playing different things. Groups would get together every now and then and come in mass but no set days. Was enjoyable.
