​​​​​​​WEB EXTRA: New Board Game Shop Opening In Midtown

Local News

There’s a new game shop opening on Broad Avenue this Saturday, but it’s not what you’d expect.

Gamers can leave their joysticks at home because this game shop is catering to a different crowd. 

Co-owners Shannon and Erin Merritt saw a need to create a space where friends can go to play board games and card games.

“That’s something you’re starting to see around Memphis. You’re starting to see this kind of resurgence of people not wanting to go to a bar or dinner and a movie. They want to do something, hang out and interact,” says Erin. 

Customers will have access to all of the latest board and card games for purchase, ranging from Axis and Allies and Magic the Gathering to Warhammer and Dungeons and Dragons. 

901 Games also plans to host a variety of game nights throughout the week, as well as competitive tournaments for gaming fans of all ages. 

You can check out the new shop located at 2491 Broad Avenue starting this Saturday at 2:00 p.m. when 901 Games hosts its grand opening event. To learn more about 901 Games, CLICK HERE.
