Pop-up game store appears in California

If you were at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Suisin City, California last weekend, you might have seen the folks from Bad Zero Games in one of the conference rooms. They’ve been at it for six months, in fact, gathering to play, make new friends and hopefully sell some games along the way.

Justin Wood is the man behind the idea, and he told The Daily Republic that he and his wife “love to host” these events. His kids help out, too. Once a month they set up the “store,” inviting folks to play, learn and buy a game.

What a clever idea! There’s little overhead and no big rental payments. For the cost of using a hotel conference room for a few hours — which visitors help cover via a five-dollar admission fee — Justin and his family have a little business going. I like it.
