Bainbridge Island D&D Players Wanted

So I’m finally buying my first home! It’s on Bainbridge Island in the great state of Washington. We are in a great location, the schools are amazing and everything is so green. It’s a short 35 minute ferry ride to Seattle. Unfortunately, it’s a pretty small town and there are no game stores. I know there has to be some tabletop gamers out here. I made a flyer tonight that I’m going to post around town tomorrow.

I have a few leads. There is a new educational store in town called The Curious Child. Interestingly enough, they have a huge Warhammer sign in the window. I chatted with the owner a bit. Her son is into Warhammer so she decided they would sell it in the store. They had a couple Citadel books near the counter right by the pre-school blocks and Candyland. The owner was a very nice woman and I saw a bulletin board. I’m sure she’ll let me post a flyer.

There’s also a Calico Cat in town. It’s a toy store divided into two spaces. The second space is dedicated to games. While casually looking for a birthday gift for my daughter, I discovered a treasure trove in the back – shelves of euro boardgames, Magic the Gathering decks and other boardgame geekery. I didn’t see any roleplaying games, but maybe I can post a sign there too.

My last targets are the two large bulletin boards on Winslow Way, the main drag downtown. The one by Blackbird Bakery gets a boatload of traffic every day. I used the image from the front of the 4th Edition Dungeon Master’s Guide. That’s a pretty recognizable image. Even if I saw that image from across the street, I’d know what it was and move in for a closer look.

Finally, there is the internet and the reason for posting this at all. When I first arrived here, I searched for “bainbridge island” and “RPG” or “D&D” or “Dungeons & Dragons”, but I didn’t get anything useful. Hopefully, Google will index this page and the next person looking for local gamers finds this page.

Here’s my flyer by the way. Wish me luck!
