GOB Retail September Newsletter
As fall begins to settle in, here at GOB haven't slowed down a bit. We've got a lot of pokers in the fire and lots to talk about, so diving right in.
Dungeon Masters Workshop - Sat October 19th @ 5pm
GOB will be hosting its 3rd annual Dungeon Masters Workshop on Saturday, October 19th starting at 5pm. This workshop lasts approximately 2.5 to 3 hours and we cover all the nuts and bolts of learning to Dungeon Master. We'll go over character creation and character backgrounds, running combats, creating NPCs and monsters, creating adventures and campaigns, setting up plot hooks and so much more. Workshop will be headed by GM staffer and experience DM Griffin Holmes, with old school game master Ryan Johnson sitting in to share some of his tricks of the trade. The workshop will close with an extensive Q&A and forum chat. We are starting to accept sign ups for this event and it will have a maximum seating for 40 people. The event will cost $15, or you can sign up FREE with any purchase at GOB of $50 or more.

GOB launched a new section this month. Board games on consignment. Mosty used (but could be a new one) that our customers bring in to sell. This is helping us to broaded our already enormous selection of board games to include games not traditionally available at retail. Out of print, kickstarters, imports and stuff simply not available through distribution for stores like ours to be able to order. That, and ust good old fashion used copies of stuff we might carry. So come check it out. AND, if you have some used games of your own and would like to sell them to get store credit for some new games, for a limited time, we'll allowing sellers the option to put as many as 10 titles on consignment at once.
