Farewell to the Boardroom
A lot of people were there Saturday, not just to take advantage of the closing sale but to say good-bye to the store and its proprietor, Gerry Hunter. I felt kind of bad because my visits to the Boardroom had tapered off over the past couple of years. But between the 4e conversion (no point in buying the new 3.5 books that were released over the past year with 4e coming out) and the fact that I just don't get to Broad Ripple much, my once weekly visits had dwindled to once every few months.
I'll miss going in and browsing the huge diversity of game books and going through the used game sections for hidden treasures to add to my collection. Usually I'm an at-a-glance shopper, not spending a much time in a store and assessing quickly whether there was anything I wanted, but the Boardroom was an exception to that rule. If you have a FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store), be sure that you appreciate it.
