Latest Shop Local Macon Article:Command Zone Games Brings New Products to Downtown
Command Zone Games celebrated its grand opening on Thursday, April 18, at their 555 Poplar Street location. Command Zone sells supplies for table top gaming, including Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. In addition, there will be space for tournaments of 100 or more people.
“There was a definite need not only for the cards and supplies but also for the tournament space. We can host large tournaments or several events for multiple card games simultaneously,” says Michael Starr, store manager. “There are other stores in Macon that carry some gaming supplies but they just don’t have the inventory, specialized knowledge or the space that we have for large tournaments.”
