And so it begins...

I've been wondering about it for years and, now that I'm being made redundant from a job that I've disliked for years, I've decided to go ahead and do it.

I'm opening a gamer's store in my city. RPGs, wargames, boardgames, CCGs, all sorts of gaming stuff. The money has been sorted, the bank is good for it and the company was registered today.

It's going to be called Halfling House Ltd, the tavern for gamers. It's in a historic city so we're maybe giving it a Tudor-style theme, like an old inn, but that depends on the decorating costs. We'll see. I've secured the shop property and suppliers and all that remains is getting the keys to the store and the funds firmly in place.

It's exciting. Very, very exciting.


  1. Congratulations, wish you the best! Great store name too.


    I'm excited too. Please post up photos of the store, before during and after. I'm interested in a copy of Cubicle 7's Victoriana and will hold off buying it until you've opened. :)

    Love the name too, it's a friendly sort of company name. :) The decor sounds a little bit pub-esque!

    Make sure you put lots of lovely lighting in - some game stores look too dark and dank and can be forboding to new peeps.

  3. Cheers, gents - I'll let you know when the opening party is and you're all invited!

  4. I'm so excited by this, I think I'm going to have an accident...


    ... too late.
