What makes this store awesome?
Merle Robinson says

Large inventory!

The Soldiery has board wargames as their main product inventory, along with plenty of Eurogames and RPGs, and also carries a variety of game accessories like card sleeves, paint, and more. And on the shelves, it’s mix of both new & used games
For in-store gaming, you’ve got a few tables.
