Games with dragons, spaceships, and bears aren’t wargames. Call them conquest games or strategy games or crap but they aren’t wargames.

I've visited Pensacola and there is Bobe

There is another place across town that sells warhammer but has board games. Can't recall the name. It may be on 14th street?

TBS Comics' Pensacola store on 9th Ave. has a decent game collection, a few tables, and a full calendar of gaming events.
http://www.tbscomics.com/
(they have a store in Ft. Walton Beach, too)

The new kid in town (as of this post) is The Game Space, on Airport Blvd.
http://www.gamespacepensacola.com/
The place is clean, well-lit, welcoming, with lots of tables (easily twice that of TBS) and very comfortable chairs. It's my new favorite gaming destination in town, as it's cleaner than Bobe's and with more tables and comfier chairs than TBS. They're new--they just opened in early May '14--so their game selection is still kind of small, but as they grow that should change. They have a great selection of sample and demo games, you can bring anything you want in to play, and they're always someone to teach you how to play (I learned X-Wing, the Star Wars LCG, Netrunner, and Race for the Galaxy there, and I introduced everyone to Hive).

There's something going on every night. I'm planning a 6-player TI3 game there one Saturday or Sunday this summer, and the owners are being very helpful with that.

I just started getting into D&D Attack Wing and am currently looking for people to play with, if anyone is interested.

Would also be interested in a Settlers of Catan game night or Zombicide!

Good list of stores. TBS comics has actually remodeled and has a much larger store with more gaming space. TBS, Bobe's Hobby House and The Game Space all have active gaming groups and events. Also, from what I understand, Pensacola has a board gamers association although, I've never looked into it. Probably something I should check out myself!
