Guardian Games in Portland!

Posted on

It was a rainy Sunday afternoon when our jaws were dropped by walking in the front doors at Guardian Games. This was hands down one of the most impressive stores we’ve been in on our whole WXSW Tour! The space is huge, there are thousands of games, dozens of tables, even a real bar where you can get a drink! The photos don’t do it justice. You’ll have to check out the video to get a real sense of the place!

Nathan quickly showed us the tables the store had reserved, so we picked up our jaws and got to work. The store was hopping with gamers of all types, and a bunch of people lined up to get their hands on our games. We had a special visit from our friend Jeff, who is the brother of our partners-in-crime Kris and Maureen of Frenzy Universe. We even got to introduce their dad, Michael, to Dead Panic.

We were busy from the minute we set up the games until we wrapped up the event that evening. Every time a game finished up, new players sat down to start a fresh one. We even had a 12-player Bears! tournament that had to be split into two semi-finals before the final round. We said goodbye to our new friends exhausted but excited from a great day and just a little bit jealous that this cool store isn’t in our home town.
