Walker Fitzroy has been playing role playing games for over four decades. He hasn’t been selling them that entire time, but he has been selling them for a long time. Walker owns Game Nite, a seven thousand square foot gaming store in the St. Louis area. We discuss the importance of play space in developing a hobby community and how his staff is managing events amid the virus. Walker advocates for a hybridized model for the future of hobby retail, and has designs on moving toward a fuller entertainment experience. Need a safe place to play during the pandemic?
