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

Accountability on the Internet

Today I looked at Facebook and got angry because one of my best friends (who owns a gaming shop) had just been accused of being a thief in a Magic the Gathering group. Nobody that I know of seems to know the accuser and there is not a picture of him on Facebook. This person accused my friend of a crime when he obviously had no proof of and in this case it constitutes libel. to prove libel you need a few things you must show defamation in this case he called my friend a thief which ruins his credibility. you must explain identification in this case he called my friend by name and identified him in various ways. you need to demonstrate publication it was on Facebook in a forum where others can see this. you need to prove fault which in this case he clearly means to ruin my friends reputation. Confirm personal harm in this case his reputation has been hurt and he is under some emotional distress as well as his wife. So I hope he takes it down soon or maybe the moderator or Facebook will intervene. By all accounts be careful what you publish because as I said earlier nothing on the internet is a secret.
