So I am looking to my future medical release from the Regular Force and was wondering what the appetite for a gaming store would be if placed in the Oromocto area.  It would supply Games Workshop, Magic: The Gathering, and a variety of other wargaming and hobby supplies.  I think the closest one of this type is in Fredericton (Gamezilla) so was thinking our military population would like one closer.

What advantage do you have over buying something online?

The main advantage a gaming store has is that it's a place to go and game.  Many ppl support their FNGS because of the events that they do and the community they build.  MTG is a perfect example.  You can order all the cards you want online but going into the store is where you generally play the tournaments.

But it is a hard row to hoe.

Is possible to keep your wargaming hobby if youre in the CAF? Im still deciding if i should sell off my entire collection before I eventually join. Is there a sizeable wargaming community within the CAF?

A high population of gamers for these type of games are military. In Wainwright the store there is about 50 percent military customer base.

There are a lot of Magic-playing, Catan collecting, D&D addicted, Risk-loving and  other various devoted board-game (war-gaming and otherwise) aficionados in the CAF. You’ll probably be quite surprised if that’s your thing. CAF has a very diverse population who enjoy many varied hobbies.

Makes sense that military people are also wargamers. I have a lot of wh40k minis to move in case i bring them. Probably store them somewhere until i get a permanent posting then i can bring them over?
