This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Pen and Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / Can the FLGS be saved?
« on: February 22, 2010, 09:29:21 pm »
The problem for me was distance - it was quite a drive for a game store, then the owner closed down and moved back up north. So, my husband opened an online store. We want to have a real brick-and-mortar place in a few years, and we've already gotten some planning down on what to do - location and I want to have a small sandwich place to add to income and hopefully cut down on the delivery - pizza and sauce-covered foods aren't good for the place!

But we couldn't afford the expansion before, and it's harder now that we're seeing the slowdown thanks to the economy.

Game stores need to know their audience - stock what the customers want, and you'll get sales. You can't carry just your pet games and ignore the rest.

Well, it used to be almost none- Ed ran the store (different Ed :D) and he had someone come in and help, but he was always there. He closed though :( and we don't have a game store.

So we started an online store. No turnover here :D

You might be thinking of the longer handled skillets popular today, but I learned on one handed skillets (good for building the forearm and wrist strength!).  Of course, for spicing while you beat,

And taken out of context, that could be so funny :)

Spike, I think I love you, man :D

Welcome Aushy! It's always nice to see another girl here.

These guys are rough, true, but they're for the most part alright. Biggest thing to remember here - every village has an idiot. The bigger the village, the more idiots. And we've become a pretty big village :D

And FWIW? I play still. I have to be a mom and wife now, but I always keep some time for gaming or crafting. I don't have a regular gaming group anymore, sadly, but I can at least play via the internet.

And now I feel so old.

Heck, I don't know American Sign language - but deaf browsers or customers stop by I do the best I can with what signs I know and a notepad. I've used our spare computer and actually searched out game sites on there so they can tell me : "Yes! I'm looking for that game!"

- Ed C.

I did something similar when I worked for a video store. I couldn't pick up sign, so I made sure I always had plenty of paper around. Guy could read lips, but he seemed to prefer writing. Nice guy, too.

You did the right thing, Ed.

Of course, I can also wax loquatious about the merits of a cast iron skillet as weaponry, so...

This I would like to hear :D

The other issue is self-diagnosis. We get this particularly with frequent internet users. Sitting around bored one night and surfing the net, it's easy to look down some checklist or do some online test and suddenly discover that you have manic depression, aspergers, post-traumatic stress disorder, repressed memories, are at high risk of colorectal cancer, and so on.

For sure. I'm far from the spectrum, but some online test said I was :rolleyes:

ADD, yeah, I can see that. Of course, when I grew up, we were cured of that with a trip behind the proverbial woodshed :D

I do agree Autism is the fad of the decade. I also believe medicine has improved so that we can help, if not fix, disorders.

I'm not a doctor, just a housewife, though. Here's a barrel of salt to take my opinion with :D

No vibes, :D but I will offer up a few prayers for 'em. Glad they got the guy.

I know that blue stuff is foul.

Other Games / How the Wii stole my heart...

I didn't find Resident Evil to be cartoonish. But remember - Nintendo is a "family" company - they sanitize what they can, and only in recent years have realized their customer base isn't just 7-12 year olds anymore.

I love my Wii. I've been a fangirl of nintendo since the beginning, and will continue to be one :)

I've been having strangeness myself - I'm using Chrome, and for some reason the main page of a forum ( say, the electronic games page) will sit and load forever, but individual threads ( like this one) finish loading.

Right now, it seems to be stuck on something called

I see Crushadows every year at Dragon Con. Hell of a show, and the venue is small enough Rogue gets into the crowd. Last year he sang to my daughter. Twice. She's in love :D Too bad she's only 6...
