Greetings! For many people in our area, the idea of a Game store is pretty foreign. There has not been a true game store in this area in a very long time, if ever. Even if there had been, what a game store is has really evolved over the years. A game store 10 years ago would look very different than a game store today.
So, what is a game store? In this era, a game store is really more of a community center than just a traditional store front. The store is what pays the bills (remember that when you are deciding where to buy your games), but the heart of the store will be the game room.
We will be focused on providing support to all the various games and hobbies that we sell. There will be almost daily events, where people come together and play games of one sort or another.
So what will we sell? If you have not been in a game store in a long time, the first thing you will notice is that we will carry a lot more different games than you remember. There will be shelves with board games, card games, role-playing games and miniature games of all shapes, sizes.
Whatever you find entertaining, whatever age audience or number of players, there are games designed to appeal to you.
Some people will only play certain games, some people will enjoy a variety of different games. Some people will feel driven to be the best at a competitive game and some will just enjoy being around people with similar interests.
Why is "Hobbies" in the title? As I mentioned games have evolved. There are competitions you can join and people will spend time trying to learn and prefect how they play. Some people will play games with miniatures and will spend large amounts of time turning them into small works of art. Its actually difficult to try and encompass all the possibilities, but the point is that games can become a pass time, beyond the act of playing the game. You can spend a large amount of time, without spending too much money.
That is not to say all games are cheap. There are games that basically go on forever and evolve over time. They are infinitely intricate and some people will find the most joy trying to master them.You don't have to, but you can spend a lot of money exploring all the different options.
What all of these games share and the thing that makes me genuinely feel good about bringing this to our community is, that they all bring people together. Be it a family playing games mostly around the dinner table or a group of friends. People come together and have fun. My job will be to sell and promote, fun. Not a bad job. Personally I can attest to the value it has brought into our home.
So, that's what Peculiar Games and Hobbies will be. A place to have fun and meet up with new people or old friends. A place designed to help you have a great evening. A place where people know the games and want to help you get the most out of your dollars. (Did I mention that your purchases make all this possible?)
