There is a place in town that you might not have heard of, but it is certainly worth checking out. This place, TCB Games, is a great place that is only planning on getting better. As of right now, TCB Games already offers an expansive collection of goods.
They sell video games, consoles, and video game accessories from the Atari to current consoles such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This, however, is only the beginning. They also sell card games such as Magic: The Gathering, comic books, movies, toys, and board games. Their selection of board games ranged from standard games like Sorry and Monopoly to more intricate and lesser-known ones, such as Gloomhaven, which won four awards last year and has won a total of ten awards. In the future, the store is planning on adding an e-stadium as well as a restaurant to the basement level of their building.
Todd Nightenhelser, the owner of the store, is also interested in sponsoring a gaming club at Huntington University. This would provide many opportunities for Huntington students who are interested in games while providing advertisement for the store. These opportunities include a discount at the store for Huntington students and allowing official events to be held on campus or in-store. Nightenhelser is even interested in helping fund an e-sports team from Huntington and providing them with the equipment they need to practice and play.
Todd Nightenhelser said, “when it comes to businesses and educational institutions, we’re like vampires, we have to be invited in.”
TCB Games is a fun place with a seemingly bright future ahead. It is a store built on and around the local community and it would very much like to welcome you in. It is almost guaranteed to have something for almost everyone interested in games. If it doesn’t have what you want, all you need to do is ask and they’ll certainly try to get it. It is certainly a place worth checking out.
Still a great article! I invite you to see what we have managed to make happen in just 1 year! During a pandemic no less!
