Hope residents have a new dedicated gaming centre.

Nuway Pawn Broker recently added a 400 square foot room with three 4×8 foot tables for people to play board and card games.

So far this year, owner Kris Enns says at least 20 people on average attend weekly organized game nights, ranging in age from eight to 40.

“The big thing is to try and give people somewhere to be able to do things like that,” he said.

“Gaming has always been a major hobby of mine. I always wanted Hope to have something like this and decided to go out of my way and start it myself.”

Nuway Game Knights started two-and-a-half years ago and runs Mondays from 5- 9 p.m.

The new dedicated room allows Enns to now offer open gaming Monday to Saturday during store hours as well.

There are several hundred different games in stock at any given time, the most popular being Warhammer, Magic: The Gathering, and Yu-Gi-Oh! People can also bring their own games to play.

There’s no drop-in fee but players can pay a one-time $10 game night membership, which provides 10 per cent off game purchases and 20 per cent of Warhammer games.

For more information about the Nuway Game Knights, contact Nuway Pawn Broker at 604-206-9959.

The store is located at 509 Wallace St.
