Check it out: Games People Play

A brand new hobby shop opens on Barrington Street

Posted By on Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 3:44 PM

At last, the shell of what was once Random Play has been brought back to life. Games People Play (1587 Barrington Street) opened today, providing a haven for board and card game lovers in town. The hobby shop will not only sell games, collectible cards and, eventually, new video games and high end computer parts for gaming PCs, but it’ll be a hangout where people can get together and play. “For the majority of my life I’ve been hanging out at shops like this, it’s a great way to meet like minded people,” says Greg Pothier, who owns the shop with friend Joseph Allen. Play that marathon game of Risk here from 11am-11pm Sunday through Thursday, and 11am-1am on Friday and Saturdays.

Survey Asks

A new report says $20 an hour is needed for a worker to live comfortably in Halifax. What do you think?

  • There are levels of “comfortable” I can accept
  • Even $20 an hour isn’t enough
  • If you’re smart, that’s more than enough to get by
  • No one in our Capitalist society can ever truly be “comfortable” while chasing money
