Gamers Den – hobby centre in Cancún

Cancún was my last place to stay and visit on the American soil. This Monday, after 6 months of travelling, I finally got back to Europe (Madrid, Spain to be exact). I almost forgot how it is to live in Europe – I missed it so much;). I already visited two stores here in Madrid, but before I give my insight from Spain, I’m going to write little bit about Cancún‘s only hobby store – Gamers Den and little wargaming community there. I’ve visited Gamers Den last weekend with high expectations. First – I was super exited about meeting gamers from there. I turned out, it’s hard for me to stay outside community for longer period of time. Of course, if there’s no perspective on the horizon – no shops or clubs around – I do not suffer hard, but when I found out that in Cancún there’s a gaming club of Warhammer Fantasy, the anticipation was hard to handle. Second thing. I was hoping to buy new paints (my Kislev Flesh was disaster! I’ve been watering …

Warlock’s Lair – Warhammer Fantasy Club in Chiapas, Mexico

I’ve spent in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas in Mexico 12 days. Not very entertaining time, I must say. Mostly work. One super adventurous excursion to Canyon Sumidero, and beside that nothing special… expect… I had nice meet up with the guys from local Warhammer 40k Club. I had very pleasant Friday afternoon, chatting and playing small, almost skirmish game of WH40k. In one of the previous posts I’m writing all about it. At first, the plan was to meet these guys and that’s it. Our extended stay in Tuxtla Gutiérrez allowed me to arrange one more meeting, in following weekend.We supposed to play Warhammer 40000 again (btw. thanks again to guys from the club, allowing me to use their miniatures for battle, I really appreciate it), but I think they were truly concern, when I was telling about my admiration for Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and small change has taken the place. Instead of usual every-weekend meeting cafeteria, we went to the home of one of the Fantasy gamers. I haven’t complain about – after 40k, I was …

Warhammer 40k in Tuxtla Guiterrez

About two months ago, we (me and my lovely wife:) bought flight tickets back to Europe. 3th May we are flying to Madrid, and week later back to Poland for next 6 months. When I was looking at the map of Mexico – I’ve arranged our trip like that – Mexico City – Oaxaca – Tuxtla Gutiérrez – Palenque – and finally Cancún (we have the flight from there). It was obvious for me I have to find some shop or wargaming club somewhere on the route. With handy help of  war games hobby map of Mexico: http://heribertohobby.com/mapa-del-hobby-en-mexico/ , I knew I could contact some people to talk, to see some battle or to play hopefully. According to the hobby map, the only club on the our way to Cancún, was Warhammer 40k Chiapas Club, in Tuxtla Gutiérrez (Chiapas State capital city). So, it was settled, after I got in touch with the guys from the club – we decided to stay for some time in Tuxtla, that I could get some mini action:). I had very …
