Roll d20 vs. Nostalgia

I was in Cincy today, trying to find some music (see previous post) at Mannerino's -- no luck. But, right next door was this little gaming store that hadn't used to be there. I went in.

Miniatures, paints, RPGs, giant stuffed dice, the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch -- what a hoot. The store had several tables set up in it and several guys were playing Magic. The store owner was younger than me, but still a certified grown-up. We chatted about the gaming industry, and who's been gobbled up by whom as far back as SPI (eaten by TSR, eaten by WoTC, eaten by Hasbro).

To quote James T. Kirk, "I feel -- young."

I've long since fallen off the gaming wagon, but I may have to go back, just to see if there's anything more than nostalgia there for me.
