Okay, so it's apparently been in town for 6 months now, but I'm sure a lot of people, like me, did not even know it existed. Elko is a small town with an economy insulated by the mining companies. I noticed a while ago that it did not have a comic book/gaming store. I was rather shocked and considered this to be one of the best opportunities someone might undertake. Well, someone did.
I know what you must be thinking, "Comic book/Gaming store in Elko? Pic or I don't believe it..."
Moving out of the saturated California market comes Frank-N-Freds Comics and Cards. The store is located at 443 Idaho Street- which is basically just down from fifth street. They are expecting to add to their collection of role playing games next week. They also sell CCG games, like Magic cards, in store, including singles. There are comics too. While many businesses have suffered during the construction on Idaho street, Frank'n'Fred's seemed to benefit from foot traffic. It was nice to have a place to talk about Magic and Comic-con in town.
I have also been told that local Magic players are meeting at the Starbucks near Smiths on Saturday at 7:00 a.m. I thought the timing was a bit early, especially for gamers who are often known for FNFFs, but was informed that the group consists of many day sleepers.
