Journeying to the Source

This week I am on the road to Minneapolis. I managed to get to the Source probably one of the largest game stores in the country. It is a big store that has lots of aisle space and lots of gaming stuff. I was there a decade ago and was able to find some nice Judges Guild stuff.

This time the pickings for older material was a lot slimmer. They still have a few Judges Guild prices but the best material (A copy of CSIO and CSWE) were at premium prices. But there is a few modules at a reasonable price I never had which I may pick up before returning home. The selection of other rpgs is amazing and comprises nearly 20 yards worth of shelves and drawers. While not quite the treasure hunt that is Warzone Matrix in Cleveland it still fun to open drawers to see what is within.

The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Whatever your interest in gaming (or comics) they can help you find it. Plus the store has lots of gaming space including a wall that pays homage to older D&D with a line up of classic modules and supplements.

The crew there is great.

I've had them call me when something new comes in and they THINK I'd like it. Nothing I've ordered, they just thought of me when it came in.

The bottom drawer to the right of the bookcase you were looking at, has more stuff if you missed it the first time around.

Oh, and I pretty sure everything on that wall is for sale as well.
