FFG grew rapidly between ’08 and ’11 and space went from a problem to an emergency. A few of the “gaming rooms” at the back of the Games Center were appropriated into offices.
To allow for FFG to spread its wings and consolidate into a single space, FFG began remodelling a 100,000′ section in the building across from its existing warehouse and business offices––those same offices which had originally housed the entire company for most of its existence until the studio unit moved a few blocks away to Oakcrest.
Once completed, the move would vacate the old FFG offices and warehouse, as well as the FFG studio space adjoining the Games Center.
Petersen thought those old offices and warehouse space to be an ideal opportunity to level-up the Fantasy Flight Games Center. Resultantly, an ambitious plan was drawn up to expand the Games Center four-fold, add a commercial kitchen, craft coffee, draft beer, and a huge event space.
FFG moved into their shiny new offices in mid-2012, and the new Games Center launched later that same year.
From its bedrock of loyal patrons, the Games Center 2nd Edition was a big success that would draw thousand of visitors a week, and host a great variety of events for FFG and the local community.
