At midday on Friday 23rd September Atlantic Games will open the doors to their new shop in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
Just a stone’s throw away from the town’s Train Station, the new shop will feature a cafe and lounge area giving customers the opportunity to grab a bite to eat. Not only will there be fresh coffee and homemade food on offer, but it’s also in range of a Pokemon Go stop, allowing fans of the game to stock up on much needed supplies whilst they take a break in-store.
Beyond the lounge the expanded gaming area will offer a range of demonstration tables for the some of the most popular card and table top games giving customers the opportunity to try their hand at a new hobby. Games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokemon and Warhammer will all be available to play and purchase as well as a range of board games including classic’s like Chess.
“I loved our old store as it gave us a fantastic starting point but the new shop will really help us go to the next level.” said owner Sebastian Parkinson “I’ve been amazed at the passion of the local community about what we’ve tried to achieve with Atlantic Games and without them, this move would never have happened.”
At the opening there will be a fancy dress competition as well as a raffle that anyone can enter to win prizes such as free food and drink, various hobby products including a £60 MTG: Lore box set and store credit. In the evening fans of Magic the Gathering will be able to take part in a Conspiracy: Take The Crown draft and there will be other games and activities available for casual gaming to take place throughout the night.
