The first store I bought gaming supplies from is Castle Comics. Castle is in my hometown of Portsmouth, Ohio. It's primarily a comic shop, but has done descent business in selling gaming material. Growing up it was my favorite place to go. It was just full of cool stuff… comics, toys, games.I spent many hours playing Magic there during my teen and early adult years. I have many fond memories of the shop and I’m still friends with the owners. I’ve spent a lot of money there. It’s where I bought my first dice set and my first gaming books.
It’s still open, though I don’t go there anymore. I don’t feel this is the proper place to go into that, but I have my reasons.
