Forbes Hobbies is my Friendly Local Gaming Store (FLGS) of choice in the Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge area. Why? Two great reasons. They carry tons of Warlord Games products (including Bolt Action) and they also have the best and largest gaming area in the area.

Many of my Bolt Action Battle Reports take place at that store using a combination of their terrain and my own. I have never seen a store that will provide you to use so many WW2 suitable buildings on their gaming tables. There is a catch though. If you don’t paint your models, Forbes Hobbies may give you a hard time and ask you to play with the terrain from other game systems instead. That said, they still let you use their tables and if you show an effort that you are painting them, even if you just primed them, they will let you use the nice tables. :)

Again, great store with the best gaming area in town!!
