"I have a distinct memory from middle school of having a rough day, coming home sad and angry, going outside and praying to God, 'Lord, PLEASE! Crash a biochemical waste truck through the fence in my parent’s backyard so that I can become a superhero.'" - Peter Jordahl

Petrie's Family Games

Peter Jordahl and Trever Shirin's favorite game store in the Springs! We have been going to Petrie's for D&D nights, board game nights, halloween events, and bachelor parties since 2012 and love the environment of this game store! They have a game library where you can sit in store and play or rent them and bring them to game night. A used game section that has excellent finds, and incredible collection of MtG cards and all sorts of games!

Petrie's is also our founding sponsor for this podcast and we are so grateful for how the have supported Nerddom in the Springs over these past years!
