New Moon Comics is not my local gaming store - it is about 2 hours away. I first visited New Moon nearly a year ago, when the shop hosted Craigcon - An annual 3+ day weekend full of gaming for a bunch of old gaming friends (and friends of friends; it grows every year). I'm a friend of a friend - last year was also my first visit to Craigcon.cavalier1864 wrote:New Moon Comics, LLC

New Moon Comics is a great store mainly because the owner cares about his consumers and the community. Rob works hard to integrate the comics and gaming folks with the Science Fiction community by fostering great events and teaching his customers that having fun is the most important thing of all....
I was immediately impressed with the store. It is a treasure trove of cool stuff - Comics, graphic novels, figures, collectables, and games. RPG games, card games, board games. As noted earlier, there is an entire room set aside just for playing games. Rob, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful. I had a blast the entire weekend, played a ton of new games, and brought many of them home as a result.
One anecdote to show what I mean: On Friday evening, around 8pm, the back room was full. The tables were arranged to allow three simultaneous games, of 6 to 8 people each. Around this time, two boys (I'd guess around 15 yrs) entered the front of the store. Rob learned that they were interested in learning about RPGs, but had never played. Rob asked of couple of people at one of the games to step out front for a minute, and introduced the boys. He explained that they wanted to learn about RPGs, and asked us to let the boys watch, ask questions, and see what was going on. He made sure to make them feel welcome and comfortable in a room full of mostly 25-45 year old men. They stuck around as late as they could, and had a great time. I'm sure they became gamers due to the introduction they got than night.
