My friends will tell you that if I am told it can’t be done, I dig deeper and make it happen. How does this relate to you and gaming? Recently I ran a drive to purchase new terrain for our local game store. Normally I would say this should be the stores responsibility. Better tables brings in players, more players usually means more money spent in the store. However in this case our local store invested a ton of money loading up every table with a FAT mat. I thought it was a shame to have such awesome gaming mats and fill it with mediocre terrain. I set out to find entire table sets, which can be very expensive. It had to be durable, so I started looking at mdf. I found War Games Tournaments. They are UK-based and have very reasonable prices for full tables worth of terrain. The quality and detail are top-notch. Now going back to the fundraiser. I was told by several at the store that they have tried this in the past and it failed. Lead by example I always say, so I put in the first $20. A few others bought in and when someone else put in a large dollar amount, I matched it. This inspired many others to throw in the lot as well. Before we knew it we had over $550 raised to purchase terrain with. There are two points to this message. First of which is, your store provides an excellent environment for you to hang with friends and play games you love. You can show your appreciation in more ways than just opening your wallet and buying the latest model. Secondly, don’t let people tell you it can’t be done just because it either hasn’t been tried or they have failed. If you dig deep enough and stick to it, you will always succeed.
