Whose Turn Is It? Games Gets the Fireside Treatment

Posted on

We haven’t lived in Austin for a year and a half, and wow has it changed! Stores replacing stores, demolition and building everywhere, and 2 new game stores! We wrote previously about Mothership, and now we’re happy to introduce Whose Turn Is It? Games. We actually met the owner, Patrick Hanschen, at GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas this past February and were thrilled to add his store to the tour schedule. The store is nicely laid out, and a gaming space the same size as the store is 2 doors down. A rather large gaming group meets there every Sunday to play new games and socialize. We had a great time meeting everyone. The Bears! tournament was particularly fun. Lots of laughs! Can’t wait to get back and play Dead Panic with them!

Houston Meetup!

Posted on

Tomorrow we’re heading for Houston and what will be one of our more unusual stops on the West by Southwest Tour so far. We’ll be at the Cafe Express on 3800 SW Freeway, Houston, TX, 77027 where we will join the West U Tuesday Boardgame Meetup group for our usual mix of demos, free giveaways and rowdyness.

It’s still free for everyone to attend, but this time we won’t be in a game store!

Last Tuesday, we hopped in the Fireside minivan and headed to north Austin to check out Mothership Books and Games. Mothership is one of the newest game stores to appear in Austin, and it’s also one of the more unique ones. Half hobby game store, half LAN center, Mothership is covering all the bases when it comes to fun stuff. Continue reading In This Episode, We Visit the Mothership!

Just off of I-35 in Round Rock there’s a great little comics and games store called Rogues Gallery. We’ve known Randy, the owner, for several years and they’ve always been good to us.
