Fun for all ages

My Friend owns a bounce house in St. Joseph, MO. The kids love it when they get an invitation to a birthday party. Kids have always loved bouncers but having a building full where they can bounce and slide is thrilling for them. The Bouncing Place has been a big hit in the community
Recently he opened a game store Galaxy Games. The community at the shop is older and more diverse you have card floppers, dice chuckers, controller crushers and even the figure flinger. One of the best things about the shop is that you can find all sorts of fun things to play. They have board games such as killer bunnies, dominion, and even Dr. Who Yahtzee, There are card games like Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, Highlander and many more, there are wargames like Warmachine/Hordes and Warhammer in which you paint Miniatures and use them to battle your opponents and there are console games for sale and people have a couple of rooms for private roleplaying sessions.
One thing I have noticed is that on Friday night there are usually 2 to 5 girls in the shop playing where that has not been usual at other stores I have been at. I feel that the community is growing and I wish to invite anyone out to try games because we are more than happy to show you how to play and have demo copies. One of my favorite games to play is Fluxx which comes in a variety of flavors from plain to Wizard of Oz and even a Monty Python version.
What sort of games do you prefer? would you like to learn a new game? Are you a game designer who wants to see your game in the shop? Leave a comment below and please subscribe

    Galaxy Games is a really neat shop. I agree, there are a lot more female gamers going. I think with the shop’s dedication to clean areas (bathroom included!) makes it more ‘girl friendly’

    And Fluxx is a FUN game. I lurv it!

    Galaxy Games in your one stop shop for all your gaming needs. Robert Cooperider has once again delivered a place for adults and children alike to go and have fun while keeping people off the streets. Shane George has delivered perfectly what this is in his essay here. brilliantly done!

    I don’t personally play games all to often, but I have friend who is in school to be a video game designer. Can this store put out video games? Or do they only put out games from specific companies? I would love to let him know so he can try to start getting his name out there?

  6. lordshane says:

    you should have your friend get in touch with the owner and see what they can do to sell his game for him they have a facebook page or I can get you in touch with him

  7. I used to play magic all of the time. I may need to head out and check this place out. You should post an address @lordshane. So people know where to go!

    I have seen this commercial before. I thought it looked like a fun place for gamers to hangout. I was happy to see a place like this is in St. Joseph. I went to their Facebook page and their website, it seems like an awesome hangout for teens and families who love to play games of all kinds!
