This past week, my wife and I took a trip to St. Louis, Missouri for her day job; I came along for the ride. We had a great time out there. St Louis is a very nice city. Pictures do not do the Arch justice. The zoo recently beat out San Diego as the best in the country. We loved the fact that new construction went out of their way to fit the character of older construction in the local area, keeping the flavor of the area. All in all, we really enjoyed St. Louis.
Before we headed there from New Jersey, we did our homework and planned to visit a number of gaming stores. The first thing that struck us as crazy was the sheer number of gaming stores out there. Here in New Jersey, I can count on one hand the number of gaming stores we have in a twenty mile radius and have fingers left over. I do not believe I could have counted on both hands the number of gaming stores in half that radius. Here in New Jersey, we have seen gaming stores close or reduce their space. Every store in St. Louis we visited had a sizable amount of space and some were talking about expanding. In short, the St. Louis gaming scene is impressive.
If you happen to be visiting St. Louis, be sure to check out the gaming scene there. We checked out check out are the Fantasy Shop, Game Nite, Miniature Market, and the Wizard’s Wagon.

And Happy Gaming…
