The big game is tomorrow. Brief update - there wont be any food in the actual store (if I remember correctly) however it's right on Wendover Ave. so there are plenty of food places around. Hope to see some B&C folks there tomorrow.

I live just outside Clayton, but I wanted to post about The Game Connection.

The Game Connection is in Knightdale, NC (www.thegameconnection.com). It stocks GW product as well as other miniatures and historicals, baord games, puzzles, kid games and learning toys for kids. They also stock a wide array of rule sets. The store is located on Knightdale Blvd just off I-540. There is a ton of different food options there (including an Arby's right next door).

Starting after the first of the year they will be running a challenge leage for WH40k and WHFB.

I believe The Castle in Greensboro is gone.. and if it's not, someone please tell me where it is now and a phone number. I've become very frustrated with the lack of options in game stores in the area. HobbyTown is now starting to stock more 40k stuff and seem to be building a crowd and interest. Too bad they don't have much room for game tables..

I have just gotten into 40k gaming over the last 6 months or so. I live near the Greensboro/Burlington area and get most of my supplies and models from Hobbytown in Greensboro. I'm having trouble finding people in the area who share similar interests with collecting and gaming.........so let me know if you're out there lol. I recently started collecting Ultramarines 5th company and am in the process of putting that army together.

In Asheville at Pastimes there is a quality group of guys, some new, some old. They meet on Saturday afternoon for 40K and Sunday for Fantasy, I think. I'm trying to get an old schooler to unpack models and blow the dust off his Ultramarines. The sad thing is now I'm painting models to give away and not for my army. Such is life.

I've been to Pastimes but not recently, I'll have to head back and check them out again.

Like the "rules lawyer", the "power gamer" also labours under the mistaken belief that 40k is competetive game. Unlike a rules lawyer (who is merely a tragic cripple), power gamers are malicious characters who enjoy humiliating others by playing to the best of their ability. Science has proven that this is because they have small [censored].

Remember, your Primarch was actually probably Alpharius. Or Omegon. Or Alpharius AND Omegon. And the Emperor's not really the Emperor. He's Alpharius, wearing a wig. Made of Omegon.

Last time I was in Greenville the Game Shack had moved to a new location on Dickinson Ave, almost right across the street from the comic shop. You'd drive right by it if you didn't know it, so best to look at their site (or even I think MySpace page) for directions. ;)

Well, if anyone is near the Jacksonville area (Wilmington is about an hour and a half away, Raleigh is two hours, and Fayetteville and Greenville an hour to an hour and a half) we've got a game store called The Hobby Chest down here. Tonnes of 40k and Fantasy. Four gaming tables and painting room in the back. It's small, but the people are cool ;) Dunno if it's worth the drive for you guys, but if you've nowhere else to go... ;)

Cheers,
-Kal

Anyone in the area, come on out for the second area (non-official) Games Day Saturday Nov 14th!

Site: 600 N Scientific St, High Point, NC
Parking will be to the right side- from Pump Station Rd

It's right by City Lake Park in Jamestown.

We will be hosting our 2nd Annual Games Day at the Cage in High Point on
November 14. This will be from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm. Yep, 12 hours of anything
GW.

We will have 40k, Fantasy, Aeronautica Imperialis, Mordheim, Blood Bowl,
Battlefleet Gothic, Apocalypse, Space Hulk, and just about anything else you can
think of GW. We will have open gaming, demos, mass battles, and a Carnage
Tourney.

Entry into the Games Day itself is 2 canned food items to be given to a local
food bank. The Carnage tourney is for the first 16 players interested and will
cost $10. Proceeds after a few prizes will be donated to the food bank too.

The Carnage tourney is as follows:

16 players
$10 entry
1000 points of 40K, must be a legal army, no FW.
Round 1 will have 4 tables of 4 players. Winner of each table moves to round 2.
Winner of round 2 is the Carnage Champion.

Let me know if you are interested in playing in the tourney. I will need your
army list before the tourney. I already have 1 signed up.

Remember, this whole day is for a great cause. Last year we had 52 come out and
donate 104 canned food items. Let's have an even bigger turnout this year.

Thanks

Bobby


Hope to see you there!

I haven't been out there lately, but Sci-Fi Genre in Durham is a good store with some good folks who play regularly.

Hello fellow North Carolinians,

I come to you from WCU, but I live in Marion. I'd like to extend the invitation to all around the Asheville area or so to head over to Hillside Games on Tunnel Road.

156 Tunnel Rd
Suite 1
Asheville
NC

They have a friendly atmosphere and typically hold tournies on Sundays. Though I'm sure if a bigger presence opened up Tournies would be held more often. And I'm fairly sure that if tables are open free-gaming is allowed throughout the week. They have fairly lengthy hours as well.

Hello.
Many of you may know me, The Normish.

I will be attending College at Elon University this fall (if all goes as planned), and was wondering if any one else will be attending it as well or is currently.
Either that, or is anyone knowing of good gaming centers near the University?

Regards,

Well, I live near Burlington, which is right next to Elon, and there used to be one there but it keeps "relocating". The closest one I know of after that is the Hobbytown in Greensboro.
