Alamo Ranch Grand Opening!
January 19th through the 21st
Your newest Dragon’s Lair Comics and Fantasy® is in the Alamo Ranch neighborhood of San Antonio. Boasting 2,900 square feet of comics, gaming, and play-space goodness, the new store spreads the geeky fun to more corners of Texas.
The mother-and-son team behind the new store, Estrella and Raul, hail from Spain. You might not realize what a strong gaming scene Spain has, especially in RPGs. Both Estrella and Raul have been gamers since childhood, starting with their families and growing circles of friends through the fun of games. Raul recalls encountering Battletech when he was eight years old in the basement of friends of his parents. Those same friends later gifted Raul with the Black Box D&D set on his birthday. “And from there,” says Raul, “it was game on!”
Estrella is especially excited by the power of games to bring people together. “The greatest of times are when you are together with family and friends having a great time, bonding, and laughing,” she says. The hectic pace of modern life sometimes leads people, unknowingly, into lives of solitude. She sees the stores and the community they foster as “a chance for people to have interactions that are positive and bring people together.”
Towards that end, you can expect the Alamo Ranch Dragon’s Lair Comics and Fantasy® store to be a welcoming place for gamers of all stripes, well stocked and staffed by friendly people who play the games and read the comics they carry. Swing by and see what they have to share during their grand opening this weekend.
