Room Pricing

Are pic related prices fair?
There is a much better store closer to me but room is limited.
Also the people that run this store are the most toxic evil business men I've ever met, but I can't play at home.

    by definition any price people are willing to pay is fair market rate.

      "Fair" is irrelevant: is it a price you're willing to pay or not?

      Actual fricking idiots.

        So you have a way to determine a "fair" price that isn't "well this is how much I feel like it should cost"?

    Assuming it's actually a private room with adequate space those are perfectly reasonable rental rates, yes.

    how are they toxic? the rates seem reasonable, though the DM included rate is a bit exorbitant. if you don't have one and everyone at the table chips in, it isn't terrible.

    Explain what they specifically did to be considered toxic evil businessmen?

      They own the largest store in the area, which is fine.
      What's not fine is actively trying to put other gaming stores out of business.
      They even heard another store was opening on the other side of town, and rushed to open one of theirs next to it and undercut them.
      They are ruthless and ''own'' the local facebook, discord, etc for anyone trying to find groups. If you mention any other store, banned.

      If you open a store that has a unique product for an edge, they will start carrying it the next week and undercut whatever it is.

        I dunno what your point is, why isn't the new business 'bad' for opening a games store in a town that already has one?

      No one owns a house anymore, moron. And your three roommates don't want to hear the game group gibbering and hooting for three to six hours.

        Play at a park or a library, then? Maybe a café?

    I wouldn't pay that much for a private D&D session but those prices for room rental seem completely fine. Everyone throws in $5 for 4 hours, that's nothing.

      If this were a hypothetical game store that was conveniently located relative to all my friends/players, $5 a week, per person, to have somewhere tidy and comfortable to play at a set time is amazing. Knowing we're paying for the space would also tweak the usual attitude people can get playing at other people's houses, and cause them to frick around less and focus more.

      I wish retail real estate wasn't so fricked everywhere because every gaming store should have this sort of service on offer.

    Have you tried any libraries in town? I'm seeing several suitable rooms available.

    Cheaper and more effective than getting a hotel room to play in.

    My LGS lets people do whatever they want in the matrioshka-like backrooms of the shop.
    I practically grew up in their unfurnished attic and they still let you runs games there free

    The DM prices are absurd at like $40/hour. The room price seems fair, but I own a home with a finished basement to play all the nerd games I want.

    Sounds nice assuming it's per group not per person, the door can be secured, it's not messy/smelly, etc.

    It's nice to game in a truly neutral space. College people have roommates and small dorms/apartments. Married guys have wives trying to disrupt the game out of boredom and/or jealousy. Open game rooms at stores have lots of pests gawking or making dumb comments.

    $7.5 per hour isnt much when its shared across a group. $3 per head total? It probably comes out cheaper than buying some random shit at the counter out of courtesy, at least as far as you're concerned. The store's certainly making a good profit from it

    A room with a free dungeon master? Sounds kinky.
