Hello everyone !

 Welcome to a new opus of “Offs du JJV”!

 PIL or Face?

At one point, two opportunities presented themselves to me: to take up an interesting job in animation or to open a board game store…

Face, animation is a job that is also a passion! 

A job that allowed me to rub shoulders with other great animators with whom I was able to forge solid experience in different types of activities…

Activities that have allowed children from 2 to 85 years old to share moments together, to listen to each other and to marvel.

PIL, Passion + Idea + Local, the perfect combo to turn a passion into a job!

A passion that makes everyday life more fun and friendly. Sharing it with you is just the icing on the cake.

 An idea not only to sell games, but to ensure that the game is a shared moment.

A place that allows you to discover fun nuggets, but a name that is not limited to the local and is also exported to outdoor activities.

PIL or Face, although Face suited me very well too, PIL suited me even better!

PIL allows me to share my playful passion with you all. 

So thank you for being at the playful rendezvous!

Good day and good game ;)

Birthday Lud

The store's anniversary is an opportunity to thank all our customers, young and old alike!

On this occasion, we offer you an online game and in-store discounts.

Even if, for reasons of space, we have to choose a handful of players among our loyal customers for the anniversary in store, the game is there.

After a little snack and a little drink (yes, you have to enjoy it, it's a party all the same! ;)), we play the game!

The last anniversary in store allowed our players to meet and create playful friendships!

A good complicity and good moments of laughter settled among the strategic and playful moments...

 The store's anniversary is a way to thank you and share our passion with you!

So thank you all for these 4 wonderful first years and we will do everything to share as much as possible with you ;)

Good day and good game ;)

Enchanted Christmas and Brico’ Recup’

Every Sunday in December before Christmas, we offer free Enchanted Christmas workshops for children.

During 30-minute slots, children can discover board games or make Christmas decorations with us.

 A time for discussion and creativity, the Enchanted Christmas workshops allow children to flourish...

Having hosted a “Brico’ Récup’” workshop for years, my goal was to make children aware of recycling and the environment.

We made unique and original creations from everyday objects by giving them a second life.

Brico’ Récup’ workshops that I continue to lead with children and teenagers to create decorative objects, furniture or even games and give them a second life.

 We can't imagine all that we can achieve with recycled objects or everyday life!

During our manual workshops of the year and Enchanted Christmas, we try as much as possible to make use of materials and objects that would have ended up in the trash when they were far from being able to go there.

 In addition to the ecological gesture, children and teenagers are happy to have a personalized object that they have made themselves.

Small gestures don't matter much, but it's these little things that make a big difference.

Good day and good game ;)

 Virtuous circle

 In an eco-responsible approach, a large part of our packaging received when ordering games is reused.

They can be used for the packaging of online orders, to create displays or even to create store and window decoration.

This is an approach that we have been carrying out since the creation of the store and apply in our daily actions.

For example, we turn off the lights of the sign, the store and the computers and other electrical and electronic devices as soon as we are closed or when they are not in use.

 The gift wrap that we offer is made of recycled and recyclable paper, as well as the adhesive tape which is made of a totally recyclable vegetable plastic.

We have exchanged all halogen bulbs in the store and the sign for LED bulbs that are better for the environment.

We donate furniture or objects that we no longer use so that they can have a second life.

We try to contribute on our small scale…

Good day and good game ;)

Passionate gamer

As you already know, I have been playing since I was young.

The world of games has always rocked my childhood and followed me until adulthood.

Working in a field where you live one of your passions is just great.

We no longer want to share it with everyone, because we love what we do.

As Novalis says

“To play is to experience chance”.

The game allows you to get together for a fun time.

Whether it is strategic, atmosphere, management, board, speed, etc...

The game is always a moment to sit down together and share.

Whether we take it very seriously or more lightly depending on our mood or desire to play at the moment, there is always a game that lends itself to our playful experiments, even the craziest... ;)

I leave the last word to one of my clients:

“We see that you love what you do, you put time and passion into it”.

Good day and good game ;)

Human first

I remember one day this CEO of a large company who came to the store for services and ended up buying games for his grandchildren because he told me that you could see that I knew from what I was talking about.

There followed a long discussion about why I created the store and how long I had been playing board games…

Taking care of the steps he had to take, I didn't realize that he was watching me carefully out of the corner of his eye, absorbed in the reception of my other clients.

Once he was done, he paid and told me the following things:

"You know how to listen and respond to customer requests, it's not given to everyone".

"The attentive and benevolent attitude you have towards people is an invaluable asset and few people have it"

"The good thing about you is that you see beyond business, you are human above all".

I thanked him, even though I don't know if I deserved all those compliments.

I am in commerce as I am in everyday life, no more, no less...

And if he reads this, I say thank you again for this conversation and these compliments that go straight to my heart.

Good day and good game ;)

Magic packets

During the Christmas period, we prepare different types of gift packages.

Our favorites remain those for children where we take particular pleasure in making original packages and hiding lots of little surprises in them. :)

I remember a merchant in the town where I was born who put out surprises in addition to Christmas presents. As a child, these little gifts made me happy.

From the first Christmas of the store, I took pleasure in creating or offering little surprises to hide in the gift or its package so that the children could feel the joy of an unexpected surprise in addition to the original gift.

I smile thinking of all these children who perhaps have the same pleasure as me, I had little to open gifts and discover more surprises... :)

Adding surprises that correspond to our customers and their children and seeing that they have had the desired effect (surprising and pleasing) is an incomparable pleasure, especially at Christmas.

It reminds me of this little 4-year-old man who came to get a surprise with a personalized package just for him and who asked me:

“And the gift packages, did the elves make them? ".

To which I nodded and he added,

"It's magic!" ".

Unique

During a time of volunteering, I found myself during an intergenerational play time to animate a role play.

As a game master, I have made it my mission to succeed in bringing parents and children together around secret objectives related to games...

The goal was to solve puzzles using the clues that each parent and each child had in their hands.

During this play time, an autistic child was afraid of the hubbub caused by the other apprentice investigators and their parents.

His mom was about to quit the game so she could reassure her autistic son when her other son started sulking, saying, "Mom, I don't want to quit the game."

The mother was going to try to calm her son down like she had done before, singing him a certain song that would calm him down.

Seeing this mother saddened that her other child can no longer play and having previously observed it, I approached the young autistic child and sat down in front of him, starting to sing the famous song.

He then took my hand to show me that he was reassured by the song and his mother smiled at me knowing that she could continue the game with her other son.

When her first son had calmed down, we joined them to finish the game and the evening ended very well.

When I left, this mother said to me:

"Never change, you are extra, that's what makes you unique".

We always end up reaping what we sow :)

At valiant heart nothing impossible !

Whenever I encountered a difficulty that I thought was insurmountable, my grandfather always used this expression that his grandfather before him had also said to him:

" At valiant heart nothing impossible ".

I grew up with this idea that difficulty could slow us down, but not stop us.

Now, I see difficulty as a challenge that pushes us to surpass ourselves.

Creating the store was a challenge for me and it continues to be so on a daily basis with the difficulties that any trader can encounter: unfair competition, jealousy and various gossip, economic and health crisis, etc...

But beyond all that, there is the reason why it all started that keeps us going.

When you no longer know why you want to continue, you have to ask yourself why you started.

Often the answer to this question allows us to know why we do things and allows us to make choices in life.

When you have the heart to undertake and want to succeed in something, you have to give yourself the means to achieve them, whether it is easy or more complicated.

We will often fail, we will succeed sometimes, but we will always move forward more experienced than before and even more determined.

Because : " At valiant heart nothing impossible " ;)

Good day and good game ;)

A fun good time.

During events within private or associative organizations, I often find myself facing beginner players or connoisseurs of classic games.

Most of the time, they don't know all the current playful nuggets...

That's good, it's my role to make them discover them ;)

To get players to succeed in assimilating a game and its rules, it is often useful to offer games that are based on an already known mechanic.

As Pablo Picasso said so well:

“To teach people something, you have to mix what they know with what they don't know. »

It's a very wise phrase that I apply on a daily basis to get my players to become comfortable with unknown games and make them want to play again.

I must not be doing too badly, because, one example among many others, a little lady who did not want to play because she was not used to playing board games told me:

“I had a great time around the games with you. Looking forward to next week that you make us discover other games."

Good day and good game ;)

On top

When the animations were suspended because of the covid, the online animations replaced them but it was not the same...

During outdoor events, we share extra moments with the players and the pleasure of the game is mutual as much for them as for me.

As soon as we were able to set up animations in secure sanitary conditions, we were happy to see that our regular players were there and had found other players to join us. :)

And as the expression “the more the merrier, the merrier” says so well, which we could adapt to the world of games as “the more players there are, the more we share”.

And we can say that entertainment is like cycling, it comes back on its own! ;)

We found the right reflexes and good habits quite quickly while respecting the health rules.

Getting together to play and share a fun moment, what more could you ask for?

Best, perhaps the closing sentence of one of the animations by a regular player:

“You are on top, always pleasant and smiling”.

Kindness, an unsuspected force!

The Christmas period is a joyous time when the playful world is very busy and happy to be as far as we are concerned. :)

The game is a way to bring players together in normal times, but the Christmas period has seen a large number of novice players regain a taste for games and the playful exchange that it entails...

Administering gossip to willing ears to recoup the profits is a rather lucrative Christmas spirit, it would seem…

I don't know what it is, because the integrity and trust of my customers are much more important to me than additional sales. But I guess all means are good to earn some money…

Strolling through a store to express a vicious glee that “it’s shit”. Giggling while staring at the shopkeeper there must be satisfying for people who peddle anything and everything…

I waited patiently without satisfying their craving for any negative reaction from me, when they moved on and realized that I was not alone...

Too bad, regulars were there and glared at them, scaring our missionaries away.

Thank you to you who trust us on a daily basis and to you who joined us in the playful world. :)

You will always be welcome to share the joy of the playful world together.

You contribute to keeping this world beautiful and full of good times of exchange and sharing;)

So simply:

Thanks thanks thanks !

And as my client rightly said that day:

"Be nice, these people lose more than you on the exchange."

Passionate

For me, a game is much more than a commercial object!

It is above all a tool that allows players to share a good time together with more or less complicated games according to our playful desire of the moment.

It allows you to manage resources, conquer territories, get the atmosphere, investigate various themes, cultivate your curiosity, stimulate your thinking, play roles and many other things...

Playing since my youngest age and having at heart to share and share fun moments of sharing, testing the games to better present them to you is a great opportunity for me.

I'm always delighted when we share good times around games and the fun world and that "it's nice to see passionate people like you" and me;)

Thank you for these good moments of playful sharing on a daily basis, stay as you are, it suits you so well :)

Pleasant trade

Selling good products is good! Doing it with passion is better! :)

Among my clients, I have people from various backgrounds: regulars in Vaison and the surrounding area, players from different parts of France who come back to see us each time they pass through Vaison, players of different nationalities.

Preferring to favor the playful interest of games, both small and big brands, we test all the games before offering them for sale in order to be able to talk about them as well as possible.

This is felt by our customers from all walks of life who often tell us

“when we find a pleasant business, we come back to it”.

In our "Cavern of Alibaba" as our customers say, we have chosen to offer products from major distributors, but also products from designers and small independent distribution houses.

Because the playful world is rich in so many beautiful nuggets that it would be a shame to deprive yourself of them! :)

Generosity

A year ago, on the occasion of the Réussir au Féminin Trophy, I won the Agility Trophy!

This trophy rewards a company that has managed to do well during the Covid period.

I was also warmly congratulated by the jury for my nominations in the categories:

-Originality: I work in a predominantly male environment.

-Digital: I am leading a strong action to digitize my offer.

- Benevolence: I distinguished myself during the pandemic.

These nominations and this award allowed me to validate the fact that I was on the right path within my company.

Through our everyday actions, as long as we can, we will continue to:  support associations with our donations, donate our time voluntarily, facilitate mutual aid actions via our social networks.

I made sure that even during the pandemic, I manage to find prizes to offer to associations, give time or help spread mutual aid.

For me, it is important to be able to give without thinking of receiving.

As Pascal Obispo says so well in his song, the important thing is to love:

“Giving is like receiving, but without realizing it”.

Reciprocity

You will certainly hear more or less good things about the store depending on who tells you about it.

Reviews that aim to destroy the store completely indifferent to me, because I know that those who really know me know how I work and why I do it...

The opinion of my loyal customers and close acquaintances is important to me, because it allows me to take into account another constructive point of view.

One thing is certain though. I think you have to respond to wickedness with patience.

Even if someone tries to discredit my store, I will continue to maintain its integrity and refer customers, even to people who try to give it a bad name.

Why ? Quite simply because I prefer to go against the current than against the heart…

It's not in my nature to try to hurt others on purpose.

I think that with even little bits of kindness here and there, we cannot change the world but contribute to making it a little better for us and those around us.

Some will say I'm naive...

No matter, the reciprocity of malicious acts will never happen from me!

I sincerely wish that everyone who undertakes something that is close to their heart succeeds.

Quite simply because I am like that and you cannot go against your true nature.

It is with this state of mind that I run my shop on a daily basis...

A smile can change everything.

A while ago, I realized the positive impact one could have on people without even realizing it…

A client had just gone through difficult times and I listened to her as sincerely and peacefully as I could, without judgment, without advice, just giving her a sympathetic ear.

When she finished confiding, she thanked me for listening to her and I just smiled with kindness and compassion.

She then said to me “You know, a smile can change everything”.

And yes, being a local business and knowing its customers well, it allows you to be attentive and caring towards them even when it does not concern sales.

I am above all human, well before being a trader.

When you see that a kind ear and a reassuring smile can help, it's not much, but it's always a nice thing to offer.

Take it or leave it !

A man one day comes with bags full of board games to the store.

 Although I specify to him that I do not resume the games, he wishes to show them to me "in case you change your mind because there are some for 300 euros in there", he said to me, pointing his finger to his bags of games ...

 To please him, I walk over and look at the games he offers, reminding him that I won't be taking any back anyway, but I'm curious about board games.

So I see that he has some collector games that I had only had the opportunity to see in photos before. Unfortunately his games are in very poor condition, even good for the trash ...

I kindly tell him that he has collectors' games, but given their conditions they're not worth much. What he replies to me:

"If it's a question of price, I can offer you something" he told me with a tense smile before adding "I'm nice, I help you ... I suggest you buy them back 150 euros and give me a voucher of 150 euros to buy games from you ”.

I then confirm to him that it will not be possible and he says to me:

 "Too bad, if you don't see the golden opportunities, it's a shame for you" by putting away his games and leaving unhappy.

Bad luck for mister, I don't just sell board games, I am also a collector and therefore I know a lot of games, even the oldest ones…

For me it will not be to take, but to leave ...

One day a shopkeeper from a family of traders who have been in Vaison for 134 years now came to see me.

When she came to offer me the opportunity to pick up the premises of an old store in the city, she said this to me:

"You have a very nice store with a very good reputation in the town, that's why I'm here".

 I thank her timidly and she adds "His reputation precedes him and he is very dynamic".

We chat then and the subject of backbiting arrives. She then gave me a wise piece of advice that I try to follow on a daily basis:

“You have to shield yourself and ignore. But I'm not worried about you, you have the build and shoulders of a boss. "

 Shortly afterwards the wife and daughter of a former store owner came to see me.

They told me it was too bad I didn't take the follow-up.

They told me they understood that I preferred to remain independent so that I could offer more varieties to customers ...

Then comes the moment when a former animation partner recommends you to organizations because "their animations are top notch."

It just goes to show that when you do things with your heart and passion, that changes everything. :)

Damn, bad luck!

It seems that the first year of the store, I was chasing bad luck ...

After discovering that I was closing for good two months after opening, bad luck still followed me ...

Damn, then! ^^

According to another shopkeeper my local would lead bad luck to all those who would have worked there and would have ended up:

-lose their business

 -separate from their spouse

 - bring them bad luck.

It is clear that after 3 and a half years of occupation, I have not reported any such facts ...

I have passed the fateful moment of one year of bad luck of the premises it seems ^^

Phew! Here I am reassured ^^

Whatever, not necessarily ...

Then came the bad luck of the newspaper ...

But what is it, then ?

 This is a lady who sees a newspaper article on the store and tells me this:

"I don’t want to scare you, but I had a business and when I got into the newspaper it went down shortly after."

 I just said "Well look, we'll see".

After several successive articles in the press, it seems that I am not touched by the bad luck of the newspaper either… ^^

Believe in your projects, because they will always be your best outcome.

 Even if they fail in the end, you won't start over from scratch but with experience.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus from the JJV Offs!

Everything becomes clearer

Throughout the preparation for the creation of the store, there were ups and downs ...

The support of the CCI was decisive in my business creation project and I cannot thank them enough for that.

During a CCI workshop for business creation support and advice, we had to present our project in two minutes flat.

 I presented the creation of the board game store as a project to bring people together.

I saw the game animations as a moment of initiation and sharing of playful moments.

 And as a convenience store, useful services to take over from certain services that were to come to an end.

Claire, the CCI advisor, congratulated my project and welcomed my promises of pre-opening.

I can say with pride that I stuck to my goals and promises of four years ago.

 The female success trophy came to congratulate my flexibility during the crisis with the agility trophy and special congratulations from the members of the jury for my nominations in the agility, digital, originality and benevolence categories.

The smile that touched me the most that day during my acceptance speech was that of Claire from the CCI and her adorable phrase "promises kept"

Good day and good game ;)

A 5 year old boy who came to visit the store with his parents said to me:

"I know why you opened a board game store" looking at me with a satisfied smile.

I ask him why, responding with a warm smile.

He adds determined, as if he had solved an investigation and quite proud of himself:

"Because you are still a child inside".

I answer him with a knowing smile on my lips:

 " You have understood everything "

Welcome to a new opus from the JJV Offs!

  In Vaison we don't like board games ...  

Before opening the store four years ago, I was advised to do a "define your business plan" workshop.  

 I do like all the other candidates for a business opening, and I tell about my plan to open a store selling board games in Vaison.    

The business advisor tells me that my project is doomed to failure and that board games cannot work in Vaison and its surroundings ...  

 She even adds that the daughter of a friend of hers tried to get a license and a room back in Vaison, but was refused.

  It chilled me a bit at the time ...  

But I struggled to open the store and start this wonderful adventure which continues for another 3 and a half years later thanks to you ;)  

 Her friend's daughter ended up finding a place in Vaison and I wish her to continue working in spite of everything ...  

If you believe in your project, try ... It is better to have remorse than regret. :)  

If I had let myself be demoralized and given up by then, we would not have shared those beautiful playful years ...  

 So if you follow me again and again in the fun adventure, I intend to accompany you there for a while;)  

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus from the JJV Offs!

In case of failure, checkmate!

It is now 30 years ago that I learned one of the best lessons in life thanks to my grandfather…

While he was teaching me to play chess, I did not understand why all the strategies I tried did not succeed.

I got more and more discouraged with each loss, but already at 4 years old, I was determined to understand what had gone wrong with my strategy to evolve it and try to win.

With a lot of patience and kindness, my grandfather explained to me why I was losing with each new strategy.

As time went by, I progressed and ended up beating him when I was 5 years old.

I will never forget what he said to me then that day:

“For every problem there is a reasonable solution. It isn’t always easy to find, but with determination one always ends up achieving a resolution."

This wise phrase from my grandfather still follows me today ...

Of course, I failed many times, but I did not stay on failures.

I realized that my mistakes taught me a lot more than if I had done everything before.

There are no failures for those who know how to learn, but tries leading to a goal ...

Have a good day and have a good game;)

Hello everyone !

 Welcome to a new opus from the JJV Offs!  

Over the centuries, population migrations have always taken place and the Middle Ages were no exception ...  

Just as the good King René of Anjou did to find his second wife, I came to settle down for love as well.  

King René of Anjou to contribute in medieval times to the development of Angers, Avignon, Tarascon and Aix en Provence.

Although he was the count, René I of Anjou was nevertheless nicknamed "the good king" in Provence.

 All the testimonies agree to say that "King René" carried Provence in his heart.  

Anyone who loved hunting, fishing, painting or writing novels and poems spent the last ten years of his life there, playing the patronage or embellishing Tarascon or Aix-en-Provence.

 René undertakes major works in Provence: irrigation in the Luberon and the Durance plain.

He built the Bonde pond dam, one of the first in France.

René is doing major work on the port of Marseille, mutilated by the Catalans, such as destroying the Maubert Tower, at the entrance to the Port, which he replaces with the Saint-Jean Tower so named because it adjoins the establishment of the Hospitallers.

At the end of King René's life, Provence is programmed to become French.

 We may not be from a region but love it just as much as our region of origin, just as King René d'Anjou did and as I love Vaison as much as my home town Angers; )  

Good day and good game ;)

It may seem strange to have cyberspace in a board game store ... And yet ...

 When we settled in a few years ago, Vaison was going to lose the last cyberspace it had in the rue de la Mairie.

Having computer skills and the possibility of setting up a cyberspace that would perpetuate the service idea of ​​a convenience store, we took the plunge.

For several years now, a good number of people have been able to carry out their various procedures thanks to this service that we offer near their homes or even when they are just passing through.

Why do we believe in Vanagloria and decided to give it a chance?

For a year now you can find in our store a card game called Vanagloria ...

In the Dark Sorcerers universe, the first to gain the most Source energy points will rule Vanagloria.

By going through offense, defense, and more to achieve your goal, you can build a strategy from the simplest to the most developed.

Under its discreet looks, Vanagloria allows you to play from two players by creating your own combos ...

Italian author and illustrator Adamo and Stefano offer interesting graphics and adaptable and original game mechanics.

With the same starting deck, you'll have to compose a real strategy to win ;)

Behind board games is more than stores, distributors and salespeople!

Every year, the Cannes Game Festival congratulates the game of the year while, more rarely, the Double 6 highlights the work of authors of board games.

The board game world is built on talented writers, remarkable illustrators, and game actors who believe in them ...

The Double 6 is awarded to game authors half by a jury and the other half by the public.

As the famous game author Théo Rivière says so well (among others author of Draftosaurus among his thirty games ^^):

"It also allows us to meet the public, to better understand how our games are appropriated by people: the board game is above all a cultural object before being an object of consumption".

Welcome to our new opus "JJV's Offs".

Before opening the store, I worked in commerce.

Then especially in animation, where I lived very good years with children and by organizing intergenerational games libraries and many others ... :)

This desire to share moments around board games with you therefore stems from those years of animation and a passion for games since I was five years old. :)

Animation has been one of the greatest work experiences in my life. :)

I liked the fun and festive side, sharing and discussing with children and their families and above all I liked offering various and varied activities, like robotics in this photo! :)

Good day and good game ;)

I am the webmaster of the store's website.

After working in animation and sales, I took a year to review the basics of coding to create and then administer the store site.

I am also the manager of our various social networks.

Hello everyone !

Welcome to this new opus of "JJV's Offs".

The background of the original logo should not look like the one on all flyers and cards now.

Composed of many colors and too contrasting, we chose to stay on an orange background which represents dynamism, joy and optimism.

Have a good Sunday and have a good game;)

Hello everyone !

Welcome to a new opus of "JJV's Offs".

Do you know where we got the idea of ​​entertainment for young and old?

Former animator with children, adolescents and intergenerational for a game library, the desire to make you play seemed natural. :) 

Games time therefore took place in the store and saw many gamers and beginners take part in it for a moment of shared conviviality.

Although they are not possible at the moment, we look forward to seeing you around the games as soon as it is possible again. :)

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone and welcome to this new Opus of “JJV's Offs”.

We have been distributing the Vanagloria card game in France for several months now.

 This partnership was born from an exchange with the creators of the game, Adamo Bencardino and Stefano Andrieri.

After testing and approving it, we decided to give these talent makers a helping hand, because we believe in this game;)

And this is how this beautiful partnership started.

And you, you want to believe in them like us and our happy customers who are already players of Vanagloria?

 So check out the Meeple Reporter article here (thanks to him :))

And our presentation of the game.

Good discovery and good game;)

Hello everyone !

Today in our "JJV's Offs" opus we tell you how Joue le Jeu Vaison was born.

A passionate player for a long time and just arrived in Vaison, there the drama ...

There was no board game store in Vaison ...  

Fresh from commerce and intergenerational animation (Freshly, because I worked at Picard Surgelés ^^), I thought to myself why not create the board game store that Vaison lacks.

And Abracadabra, Joue le Jeu Vaison was here!

Have a good Sunday and have a good game;)

Hello everyone !

Today in our Opus of "JJV's Offs" we tell you how our passion for the game was born ;)

I've been a chess player since I was 5 years old (like a platform series it seems, I don't have this platform so no idea ^^).

I improvised my first Risk by nabbing pawns here and there in my parents' games and by tracing the conquests of each army with an erasable marker on the world map that I used as a desk pad for school. :)

Then it all happened and I was never able to stop playing board games and video games. :)

Have a good Sunday and have a good game. ;)

Hello everyone and welcome to a new opus of "JJV's Offs".

When it came time to put up the sign, it got stuck ...

We didn't know we had to heat it up and bend it a bit to put it down ...

 Thanks to our printer Imprime Sur Tout(in Orange) who came to help us put it together before the storm hit.

Thank you to all these big brands that make it easier for small ones to see the big day.

Happy Sunday to you and have a good game;)

Hello everyone !

Today for our second installment of "JJV's Offs", we are going to talk about the choice of the name of the store "Joue le Jeu".

"Playing the Game" is a 20th century phrase that means being loyal and outspoken, but also the idea of ​​having a sincere and respectful relationship with one another.

"Play the Game" is therefore inspired by this desire to be respectful of our customers but also literally "play the game" with our customers by offering discussion times around board games. :)

There you go, you know everything about the name of the store. :)

Have a good Sunday and have a good game;)
