My my how things have changed!
In the good old days games workshop games nights were a great way to meet and play different people. They were freindly, nice and you could get a game no problem.
Hark not so anymore! I went to the games night last night to find that they have become a tight nit clique, who are arrogant, unfriendly and not willing to talk to new people. I asked about 6 guys for a game, but every one of them just said no, without even giving a reason.
To top it all off 3 big fat dudes stole the table me and me mate were gonna play on!
Grrr! Has all games workshops now turned to the dark side? Or is mine just a filthy exception?
Sad to hear that is the way it was at your store. Both the ones I frequent are really cool. Sure, there are some people who you just can't walk away from (social misfits) but hey, it isn't that much effort to be nice to people...
I go quite often, and know most of the regulars and all the staff. Great place.
Beware the Agapanthers!
Codex Astartes: More a guideline than a rule...
My problem with the local GW is the exact oppoisite: That they just let anybody in.....I've had alot of problems there recently with mainly new custemers....If people are going to be that ignorant and rude to me then I'm not going making plans to go there anymore.....I don't need to have people spit in my face more than once before I only go when I know they won't be around.
I had the same problem as Osaria. The GW I USED to go to was ridiculous. 3 tables. Two of the "Almighty vets" would get the biggest table, and just shoot each other to death with absolutely no terrain on the board. Another Table was dedicated to teaching new people how to play. The last table always had some rediculous 6 way battle going on.
It was horrible. Too many kids didn't know the rules, and decided to make them up. It felt a little sad when I say these kids looking up to the "vets". The vets were absolutely horrible at the game. No terrain was allowed on the table. They just sat there and shot each other to death over 6 turns. Wow. Soo exciting.
Wow, no terrain? How boring...The vets were absolutely horrible at the game. No terrain was allowed on the table. They just sat there and shot each other to death over 6 turns. Wow. Soo exciting.
Anyway, I think it varies from shop to shop, but I don't know. I usually go to my local
'Hobby Town USA' instead of the GW store to buy and play the game.
That sucks. The one around here (Colorado) is quite popular. Its always filled with people Saturday to play against that are friendly and nice, and they have a wide selection of miniatures.my hobbytown closed down last year.
Ours is weird; our GW in Liverpool does 2 hobby nights, Mondays is for the old boys and Tuesdays is for the younger lads. Tuesdays seem to bring a lot of the more anti-social crowd in; the younger lads who sneer at you for wearing Nike trainers and a trackie but won't look at you sideways, and there was one lad who started trying to correct me on rules I WAS READING OUT OF A ****ING CODEX who was a few seconds away from being kicked round the shop. Mondays are great, most of the lads are 20+ and you always get a half-decent game, although people's HQs have a tendancy to become special characters after 2 turns if the bloke who runs the club isn't keeping an eye on them .
The staff themselves are alright, they don't really get involved in the gaming club but none of them are snotty and they're always willing to help out.
