I’ve grown up with the video game generation and have never really been able to stay focused or entertained with most table top games like Monopoly or Scrabble. Maybe I’m just a little impatient with my games, but I never liked waiting for everyone else to finish taking their turns. I’d rather just cut the game short and be done with it most of the time.

Located on Main Street in Lewsiville, Game Exchange has been around for as long as I can remember. Though it’s seen its share of renovations, remodeling and even a location change it still offers what it always has: Old school gaming thrills at rock bottom prices. On top of retro Video games, they also sell newer stuff from the Xbox, Xbox 360, Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and various trading card and tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pokemon. When the shop first opened, the balance leaned heavily towards their Video games sales…but now, unfortunately, it leans towards the card games which has lead to the decline of their gaming stock. Still, there’s more than enough left to make your visit worthwhile.

Therefore, don’t start at the beginning and work your way through. Simply go for the best game at the beginning, especially if you have a limited budget.
The speaker at Thursday’s meeting is Paulette Davis Horton, who wrote Death in 60 Days: Who Silenced Booker T. Washington? – A Nurse’s View. Washington was on vacation in Mobile, AL, from Sept. 18 – Oct. 1, 1915. His last public appearance was in New Haven, CT. on Oct. 25. A week later while in New York, the newspapers reported he had a nervous breakdown and was ageing rapidly. The hospital record dated Nov. 1 stated that he had no mental symptoms.
