Arguably, this is why there are no game or hobby stores in the area.

That horse is long out of the barn.* Given that there are now no such stores in the area, what should we do?

*There are a plethora of other contributing factors, including a major game distributor that went under in the early-to-mid 2000s without paying publishers for product received or delivering said product to retailers for funds rendered. Guess which group was overall least able to absorb the resultant losses?

Well, counting a Games Workshop store, there are 5 hobby/game shops within 45 minutes drive of me, not counting Hobby Lobby and Michaels stores. I guess it depends on where you are at. What is surprising is that there is no games shop in Lake Geneva, where TSR started.

In talking with Michaels and Hobby Lobby, they do not do special orders for Safari Limited stuff, but just take what their supplier ships them. That does mean that for some tubes of figures, I will have to order online. They do have some fantasy tubes, to go along with the dinosaurs, with one tube having a figure of Poseidon in it.

They do have one Astronaut tube, but that only has a couple of vacuum suit figures along with various satellites and a Shuttle, so not that useful for Traveller or Cepheus Engine unless you are on the ground. It will also depend on how set your players are of having a figure that exactly represents their character, or something that is reasonably close.

Given the range of Legos in the Star Wars and Superheroes range, I keep thinking that for the not-to-fastidiuous gamer, those would work nicely too.

and his wonders in the deep.
