I took some time off from work this week and spent some off time with my family. My son is growing like a week and he was in dire need of some new clothes (he is officially in bigger sizes that his father). All that is really pointless to the actual reason for this post. While we were shopping for him we stopped at our friendly local game store (FLGS for short).
Now we have only started playing DnD for a few months and it’s an amazing world that opens up around you when you start looking. We have a game store in our community. I had no clue until I started looking for others who played DnD. So, we went by to see what they were all about. Apparently, we had missed out on tabletop day that weekend before. Most of their stock was wiped out. However, the owner was super friendly and helpful. Magic the Gathering is really his primary focus, but he gave the website for his supplier and told me if there are any minis I wanted to give him the number and he’d order them for me.
They also have meetups and lots of events there. He also pointed me to a group of table top gamers that are local. So, it was worth the visit. We even picked up a second players handbook so the wife and I aren’t fighting over the one we had.
If you have a FLGS in your area check it out. Try to support it the best you can. It’s always good to keep your money in your local community if you can. I know sometimes you just can’t, but the more you do the better it is for your local area!
