We just made the big move from Illinois to North Carolina. While we love the area, we have left our gaming friends behind and need to make new connections. We love board games (we have lots from Rio Grande, Z Man, Mayfair, Queen, and many other assorted publishers as well as some classics). If anyone knows of an existing group around Laurinburg or wants to help start one, please message me! Being at GenCon has really made me miss my game friends!
We have a nice game store called Cape Fear Games in Wilmington, NC. We get together on Thursday nights at around 6:00 pm until the store closes at 11:00 PM. If Thursdays don't work for you we also gather on the weekends either at the store or at people's homes. I have been through your area a few times on my way over to Charlotte and I believe it is about an 1 1/2 hour drive to Wilmington. We certainly hope you enjoy your new home here in the wonderful state of North Carolina!
