Do you have a favorite local game store close to you? What is it like? What is your favorite feature at the store?
Do you patronize your favorite local game stores?
Or do you consistently search for the best price online?
I’m fortunate to have 3 LGS here in Rochester.
My favorite favorite local game store is a cleverly named establishment in the mall called “Gamez and More”. They have a surprisingly decent selection of board games (They even have copies of TI4 and Gloomhaven for sale!) and a large space with tables for gaming and MTG. Like most LGS I’m sure they make most of their money on MTG so most of the playing space and floor space is set up for that game.
Sometimes their prices for board games are pretty close to what you can find online but other times they are way off. I’m willing to pay a little bit more to support a local shop, but when the price is way off, I will definitely be ordering from Amazon.
What do you have around you?
