Unless you are causing trouble in store you are perfectly within your right to complete your game, GW stores are hobby centres and if a member of staff has given you permission to play ANY game you are entilted to finish it regardless of who comes in afterwards at the time of starting you game member of staff X was giviing you leave to play,.

I'm pretty sure that ignoring their polite requests that we pack away the Inquisitor stuff and just continuing to play regardless might have come under this heading. :P

I wasn't too upset about it - I just played a game of 40k instead. I just always remembered it as the landmark occasion where it was no longer acceptable to play Inq. in stores anymore.

Now I just play with friends from uni... Where there's no restrictions on what models we can use, and no restrictions on where we can play.
"Somehow, Inquisitor, when you say 'with all due respect,' I don't think that you mean any respect at all."

"I disagree, governor. I think I am giving you all of the respect that you are due..."

Ganesworkshop manchester was pretty cool about =][=

I went into GW Norwich recently to see an old friend who's now working there, asked if we could run an =][= game, got told not for three weeks. Turns out they are allowing specialist games one night a month.  ::)

You got to remember that it's a shop first, no matter what anyone says. The fact you can do other stuff is a bonus.

I buy hoover bags from Curries but they won't let me Hoover there...

No GW Stores are called "Hobby Centers"  - that to me would mean that its a place for all of us to go and indulge in our Hobby (Miniatures Modelling and war gaming) considering the stores or "Hobby Centers" Are run and staffed by GW Employees that to me would indicate that you specifically focussed on GW Products, Inquisitor is a GW Product so i should be able to go in there sit down with a model im working on for INQ and paint it and if it is quiet maybe run a game if anyone else is interested.

First I must confess that I have been inside a GW store only twice and never played in there.

To me it seems logical to only allow games and figures that are sold in the store, after all, the playing area exists because it promotes sales of that store's products. Inquisitor sadly no longer is sold in their stores making it useless to their sales to allow it being played there.
Circles of the wise My attempt at writing something, please comment on it if you have any advise.

You can call a spade a telescope but it will still only be useful for digging. They are shops first and entirely about making money, the other stuff is just a bit of PR, it doesn't make any money directly and it could even put people off (an oft cited reason for not allowing Inq due to complexity).

Bottom line, it's their shop, they can do what they like. They're not a charity, it's all about making money.

I find myself agreeing with Dolnikan and Morcus. It seems a little petulant to walk into GW and expect Inquisitor to be catered for - somewhat along the same scale as expecting to play old Citadel games from the 1980s (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who, Star Trek?). As Marco often says, Inquisitor doesn't need Games Workshop in its truest sense.

INQ28, done properly, is at least the equal of its big brother - and Mol is one of the expert proponents of "done properly".

Lucky you. I tried asking when I was in my local yesterday. Nada. No SGs at all - not even one night a month.

Apparently, "Specialist Games don't need so much space, so you can usually play them at home".

I said something about not everyone will trust someone they don't know well to invite them, or be invited, to play games in a non-public location. No luck, of course, but I wasn't going to let it go that easily.

It's apparently perfectly legit to be around modelling, painting or talking with the guys, but not gaming. I'm left wondering if a dedicated attempt to raise the profile of SGs in the store could change that. Either way, considering a recruiting drive to find more players.

Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

I'd love to too, but I can't for three reasons. :( 1.a. lack of INQ minis to paint/convert. 1.b. this is due to my lack of pocket money. 2. the distance from N.E. Scotland to London. 3. Strangers (Marco and Stormgrad) yes I really don't know you at all.
