IndyPick • Best Of 2010: Place to Geek Out
If your heart starts beating faster at the thought of playing Magic: The Gathering, or trying your hand in a biannual model-building contest, Compleat Games and Hobbies is definitely the place for you. Compleat is gamer, geek and nerd heaven, with events almost every night of the week. John Goodwin, co-owner and avid gamer, encourages new gamers to try the Dungeons & Dragons: Encounters night for a short introduction to a role-playing game that, unlike many games, actually encourages human interaction. (Short for the gaming world means an hour and a half, in this case.) Those of you looking for a less intense gaming experience can explore the family games or puzzles sections, take chess lessons, or go to the weekly family game night. — Leah Barker
