We recently checked out the new gaming store in Short Pump, Virginia, The Dragon's Den. I have never written a spotlight article for a gaming store in Richmond because none have ever given me the friendly, professional feeling. In many cases, the owners or folks behind the counter couldn't give a damn if you were in there or not. So I would like to share our experience in The Dragon's Den on a pretty busy Sunday afternoon.
I walked in with my son, Alex, and we were greeted by the guy behind the counter immediately with "Hello, how are you doing today? Welcome to the Dragon's Den" Good start so far. I ask if they carry Flames of War to which sadly he tells me "no, but if you are interested in something we can special order just about anything and have it here in a few days." He then tells me some of the other games they have including Games Workshop and Yugioh cards, to my son's delight. After about 10 minutes of looking around in the board game section, we are approached by another associate, whom we find out is Scott, one of the owners who offers to help us. I asked him some questions about some board games and he starts giving recommendations of different games and offers some good insight into making our purchase.
|I told Alex no on this one. Three different types of Monopoly is enough.|
|Demo table. Wow.|
