Enough...Thanksgiving is for being with people, not shopping....

Thanksgiving: Don’t shop on Black Friday?!?!

We are Closed for Thanksgiving…Open at 12 on Friday the 23rd.

Black Friday =Family Friday
Every year. I do my traditional Thanksgiving thing, and stand up against the marketing Tsunami  and become a foolish business guy. 

I’m not going to be part of the industry that has done such an amazing job of implanting in our minds that it is SHOPPING time, that we have forgotten that this is a day where our family/friends have often traveled a big distance, are together and don’t have to go to work.   Don’t go shopping on Friday (or Thursday night, etc).  Not in the stores, not on line, none of it.

Go play!!!  Sure, I’m the board game guy, so that’s my auto suggestion, but go for a walk, hike, de-dust the football (and stretch first..those of us who’s memories of being 12 are a few times older then being 12.)  But go goof with each other, and have some (gasp) fun!  Relax, go back to the leftovers a bunch of times when no one is looking. Or just chill out.

I’m not saying we don’t want and need yer business.  We absolutely do.  Competing with the near cost prices of Amazon means that every sale from customers who appreciate that we are creating a home for community more then anything else is absolutely key for us.  (So save some of your gift money to spend with us).  But it does mean that I’m not going to make my sales last 45 minutes so you have no choice but to leave the house in order to get them.  We’ll be doing sales all weekend, but we’ll base them on how many we need to sell at that price so, you can come in this weekend, or next week, etc.

Our big thing is to make sure that we listen and can point you to things that will actually be fun to play and make people happy.  (And no fake reviews either.  Ok…that was a little shot at Amazon…couldn’t help myself.)

So come and see us.  We’ll have a bunch of fun store specials we will tweet out each day, and those who know me well, know that we take care of our customers.

A few interesting special things that just came in.

D&D Core Rule book Limited Edition at $199.99* (But since we know that almost anyone who wants this already has the books, you can trade in your old books for up to $60 off the set, depending on condition) (We have 5 of these in stock)

Also one our all time fav games, Betrayal on the House on the Hill got the Legacy treatment, and we have these in stock too.
