I can remember a couple of stores that always had people playing D&D or Magic cards in the store. It was little narrow store, maybe twelve feet wide and fifty feet deep, and every day the place was filled with loud malcontents playing games. They always had five or six different games going on and it was impossible to even walk to the back of the store where they had the new releases. They were playing D&D games on top of the back isssue bins, so you couldn't look through those.
Other stores had separate sections with tables for the gamers, but they were still loud and obnoxious.
I never understood why comic stores let people play games in them. They just take up space and they don't buy anything. Why can't they just do that shit in their own homes?
