My own personal rant zone

I set up this place so I can mostly talk about Tabletop Gaming...but occasionally some other stuff too...

In light of my last post...

Things that make doing what I do easier:

A person comes in the store today, and really takes his time looking around. I have gotten very good at spotting a first timer in the store, who is also clearly a hobby gamer. I made sure he felt welcome, and offered help a few times (without giving the hard sell tm). As he was making his purchase, I made sure to ask him if he found everything ok. Without hesitation, and a BIG grin he said, 'Oh yes! I have to say, this is easily the nicest game store I have ever been to in the 20 years I have been gaming.'

We talked some more, and he left smiling. That'll keep ya going for a while. :)
