Our focus is on creating a diverse and welcoming environment to give you a great experience, build friendships, and/ or challenge yourself.  
3 Gear Art Studio
We have the pleasure of working with a handful of talented local artists, many of whom also enjoy playing games here. 3 Gear Art Studio was born from Sinex Designs after Stewart's mother Roxana Sinex. Roxana a talented oil painter and architect taught art classes in the space. Many of her works can be seen around The Mill today. After her retirement, many of her students lamented at not having a place to practice their art, and that is how 3 Gear Art Studio was born. We believe in the transformative power of not only games but in art, which is why we decided to do our best to keep it going. We hold regular artist meetups and paint and takes as well as sell artwork from our artists.

3 Gear Reviews



L Claire recommends 3 Gear Games. October 4, 2019

"Here fairly frequently for the weekly games, and just to use their library to build or level up characters. They are always more than happy to sit down and explain a system or walk you through the process. Setup is practical and cozy - cushioned folding chairs and moveable tables, so easy to add more people in by adding a table or altering the set up. Cute decor, good snacks. Also! Tried out some fun boardgames I otherwise never would have known existed. All around great little spot with really helpful and kind people running it"
