Which Games Plus Are We Talking About?

Short post today.

I got an email from Miniatures Market advertising Games Plus Gaming Bags and foam trays. Considering I'm a huge fan of the Games Plus store in Mount Prospect, IL (http://www.games-plus.com/) I was obviously intrigued. So I looked into the Games Plus Gaming Bags and it turns out it's a totally different company that goes by the name of Games Plus Products (http://gameplusproducts.com/).

Now I understand that the term Games Plus is kind of generic, but is there any type of trademarking shenanigans going on here? What if both Games Plus' get tables at, let's say, Gencon? I ask because Games Plus (the store in IL) is there every year.

Just wanted to get the word out so people don't get confused and think these bags are made by our beloved store in Mount Prospect, IL.

  1. Weirdly enough, a former local store has had similar problems with shipping and other orders. The store, named Arkham Games, is apparently not the only Arkham Games. Since Lovecraft stuff is not very tightly trademarked, multiple people and companies can use it. Sorta problematic for him though >.>
