Nestled away in downtown Winnsboro is a unique getaway for you and your friends to get lost in the plethora of games!
Keep It Nerdy was founded in 2021 by Scott Black, with the intention of being a place where visitors can enjoy playing any kind of game together. This includes newer systems like the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, to PlayStation Classics and arcade machines loaded with all the classic games. They have hourly rates, and host parties or events, such as a birthday or even a bachelor party.
“In the future, I see this place as like a hub,” said Black. “For a local e-sports team, it’s getting really big and people are starting to realize this is an important thing. There’s thousands of gamers in this area who are excellent who may not have an opportunity.”
Keep It Nerdy brings entertaining for those of all walks of life, not only to the video game crowd. They have comic books, new and old available, as well as manga, tarot cards, crystals, and assorted books.
“We’ve actually had a few (Super) Smash Bros tournaments,” said Black. “We do tournaments and trying to do more, including card games.”
The most important part of gaming is when you can do it with friends, and tournaments, whether they be Super Smash Bros or a card game like Magic the Gathering, bring gamers together. The Winnsboro Chess Club meets on Thursdays at Keep It Nerdy from 5pm to 8pm, where anyone can stop in to learn, play, and have fun with other players. They also have an occasional Dungeons & Dragons “one-shot”, for those who enjoy tabletop role-playing games or for new players who have always wanted to give it a try!
If you’d like to experience all the games, books, comradery available at Keep It Nerdy, you can checkout their Facebook page for events going on or contact them about an event you’d like to host there.
