Gear Gaming has a new location now open in Birmingham at 1929 Hoover Ct, Birmingham, AL 35226. The friendly neighborhood game store, which has two locations in Arkansas, hopes to fill the void left in Birmingham after several local comic shops and game stores recently closed.
Gear Gaming is more than your average game store
The four partners behind the Gear Gaming Birmingham location, Tre’ Morton, Dustin Gilbert, Dillon Fiore and Murray Nuckols, hope to bring a different approach to the typical gaming store. The partners want to create a nice, well lit place for gamers to play. They also want to help raise awareness and encourage the growth of Birmingham’s gaming communities. The store will host game demonstrations and tournaments to introduce players to new games and to help spearhead the growth of new communities by offering a easy way for players to find games and run their own tournaments.
What about the games?
Gear Gaming will offer product lines from some of the biggest names in tabletop and trading card games such as: Warhammer 40k, Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars Legion, Star Wars X-Wing, Star Wars Armada, Star Wars Imperial Assault, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh and more. There will also be nearly one hundred different board games from some of today’s top manufacturers.
Private gaming rooms
The store will also offer private gaming rooms with ample space to accommodate you and your friends’ gaming needs regardless of whether you’re playing a Magic the Gathering tournament or running a weekly campaign of Dungeons and Dragons. The two VIP gaming rooms offer a private, premium gaming environment away from the crowd. If you’d like to book one of the private rooms call 205-968-1400. Rooms must be booked in 4 hour blocks and are first come first serve.
