Two Thousand Seventeen.
This year marks Games and Stuff’s 17th Birthday.
It’s also the start of a new chapter for G&S as Paul takes over ownership of the store. Come party with us as we celebrate all the hard work Paul, Ed and the rest of the G&S staff have done to get us here. And of course revel in the fellowship of the wonderful community of gamers that has made us the best gaming store in the Mid-Atlantic.
We’re pulling out the stops.
We’ll have cupcakes.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
