Lots of gaming in Quincy
First, there's the Great River Gaming Guild. It's been around for over 25 years. They run a convention the third weekend in June every year.
Yes, this weekend (June 20-22, 2008).
They also have gaming every Sunday night from 6-10pm in the basement hall at Tangerine Bowl at 36th & Maine.
They've been doing THAT for years too.
Up until a month ago there were three places that sold games: Quincy Hobby on Maine just east of 36th, Midwest Comics and Collectibles on Broadway just east of 18th, and Par-a-dice Games and Comics at 12th and Vermont. Oh yeah, and Waldenbooks in the mall, though they're clueless. Midwest is closed temporarily while the owner takes some time off and finds a new storefront.
I've lived in Quincy since 1996. I've known about the Guild since 1998, and patronized Quincy Hobby and Midwest since that time.
Don't know what rocks you guys from Quincy and Hannibal were living under, but everyone of those except Paradice has been operating since well before the original 2003 posting on this thread.
Oh and btw, I've had internet since I moved here in 1996, and switched to DSL in 2001, and at decent prices too.
Forgottonia western Illinois has been, but not anymore.
And we have some good looking women too. And too much river water at the moment.
