Norcross Shopping

  • by mzmyopia Written May 16, 2003

    The War Room is *very* popular with D&D gamers and folks who play war games with miniatures. The store hosts events like no-sleep gaming tournaments and guest speakers.

    What to buy: Warhammer, Magic, historical figures (Abyssians, Romans, etc), magical evil creatures

    What to pay: you own a credit card, right? *grin* Many gamers go insane for a few hours.
