Look at that gaming space! Of the tiny space, I’d hazard about 75% of it is places where people can come and connect with no admission.

Upon stepping into the North of Exile store, I was surprised how quiet it was. We came on a Wednesday afternoon in the height of tourist season. This store seems like a hidden gem that residents of Penetanguishene like to keep secret.

The area boasts a large play area complete with a sitting room with a TV for smaller children who are less interested by the games their caregivers are playing. There is a bit of everything in this store including local art, board games, card games, Magic the Gathering, and role-playing game books at very reasonable prices. Compared to the prices in Toronto, everything was a steal!

The area was quiet and fresh. The only admission to the tables was that they hoped people would pay for some reasonably priced snacks.

Accessibility and parking were a little bit harder to assess on our visit as there is currently construction along the road and sidewalk that is primarily used to park and visit. This has the opportunity to become a fantastic spot for any accessibility, so we look forward to seeing what comes after the construction is complete.

The community largely seems to be word of mouth, Facebook page, but also have set up a Facebook group for interested people to connect. With regular posts and attempts to bring community together, I couldn’t be happier.

For anyone in the Penetanguishene area, please check out this wonderful store.
