Hello everyone!

I’m the owner/operator of Gathering Games. I’m a long time video and card gamer (well, I tried to keep up with Magic:TG, but it went in phases). I worked for corporate America for close to 15 years, and I am hoping to bring a high-quality, hugely fun, game-playing experience to the South Tampa Area.

We will eagerly support games desired by the community, and will vigorously work to ensure gamers of every age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, hair color, etc., etc., whether they are hardened pros or complete noobs, feel WELCOME and at home at Gathering Games. Please feel free to send suggestions of any kind at any time. I’ll read them all and seriously consider them all, though I can’t promise to do them all 🙂

We will carry and play a ton of different games. So far the focus is on CCGs like Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh. We also have a ton of table-top games including Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Game of Thrones: The Card Game, Star Wars X-Wing, Munchkin, Dominion, Arkham Horror, Pandemic, Netrunner, etc. etc. etc. Please come on in to play, or find a gaming group or event on our Facebook page.


Jamie Voorhies – Owner… Yup, that’s me with my favorite person ever and inspiration for doing something for a living I actually enjoy. I worked on Powerpoints and Excel models for many years, and have now left the real world to help bring gaming to the masses. I learned all sorts of math, strategy, social skills, etc., while gaming through the years, and I am hoping now to pay that forward.


Nathaniel Ruby has been with me since the beginning, weeks and weeks ago. He likes teaching TaeKwonDo, playing Yu-Gi-Oh!, and giggling like a school girl. When Nathaniel isn’t slinging cards or pretending to be a Ninja, he’s watching Game of Thrones, or sleeping in his car.
