After sharing my lamentations over getting new people to join the hobby on a Facebook Kings of War group, the owner of Giga-Bites Cafe in Marietta, GA, shared this video:


It’s about board games. But board games are a start to getting people to put the cellphone down and being more social.

This video might be worth sharing with anybody who has even a vague interest in tabletop games.

I do see a certain irony here: tabletop gamers were once seen as socially awkward and even anti-social. But now tabletop gamers are solution to the widespread problem of people not being social enough because of technology.

And, for the Giga-Bites is a nice gaming store with a broad selection of games (as you could probably see in their video). Though I’ve yet to try the food.
