Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow, 11/24, is Small Business Saturday. Why should I be bothering you all with that detail? Well your friendly local game store is most likely a small business! You should think about paying them a visit. If you don’t know what to buy, you can check out current/ongoing list of These 35 Games or you can ask someone who works at your store for some help. They should be able to point you to some real goodies! Or dice…you can never have too many dice.
I know I’m planning to hit up my local store tomorrow morning, how about you?
Labyrinth’s Annual Used Game Sale is just around the corner, like this weekend, July 28-29! Not familiar? At the beginning of this month, a bunch of people (including myself) donated some of games to be auctioned off at the end of this month. Some of the ways this aids the local community is helping buy games for local teachers and help fund Labyrinth’s school aftercare program & demo library.
They raised over $4,700 last year and hopefully they can bring in even more this year. They get a crazy amount of games and even sealed games. Some notable games I’ve heard them offing is HeroQuest w/expansion fully painted, Near & Far sealed, Twilight Imperium 4 sealed, Xenoshyft Dreadmire, and thousands more. So there are plenty of good stuff to be found.
