1:46PM - Gaming Evening cancelled indefinatly

Sadly, due to lack of enthusiasm on our part for an 11 hour day on a wednesday we are closing the gaming evening. What went before was fun. In the end, however it was taking too much out of us for it to be worth while.

Apologies to anyone who was looking forward to us starting this again in the new year, but it's really not possible.

12:16PM - Gaming Evening

Alex will be closing the store at 6pm today so there won't be a gaming
evening as such this week.

The gaming evening at G&P is changing format. The shop will now be
staying open till 7pm for trade, during which time we will keep the
tables open for people to play on. It's a less formal idea in general.
If things pick up again after Christmas we will probably reinstate the
"Gaming Evening" proper.

To elaborate further on what we are proposing to do here are a few points:

1:10PM - Time For an Update

Due to the chaos brought about by the retail Christmas season (which, as we all know is about three months longer than is strictly necessary) we have been a bit useless of late keeping you all up to date.

Stuff that's new:

We're expecting a second order in mid-december which will have the rest of ex-caliber's range. If theres anything you'd like to order, drop us a line and we'll be happy to add it to that order.

2:38PM - Gaming evening tomorrow wednesday 5th november

Is sort-of-on. We expect to be quite busy before the fireworks display (which we want to see too!) and so may not be able to participate ourselves, but with luck people will be able to use the tables until 7:00-:7:15pm when we will close up to go see the display.

As ever we have a selection of games for you to play.
