FLGS Directory

So I thought it might be useful for folks to be able to look up whether or not there's a FLGS near anywhere they might be traveling / moving / etc.

It's a bit outdated but does list most of the FLGS's in Texas
http://www.wargames.com/directory/Texas

And if anybody is in the Austin area, my FLGS is:

Great Hall Games
5501 N Lamar Blvd A-135, Austin, TX 78751
(512) 505-0055

I'm there most frequently on Friday evenings.

Interesting.   :)

I tend to just stop in and make an impulse purchase once every month or two.  They have varying game nights (lots of tables I think) but I've not really checked to see if they host any I'd be into at the moment. 

The owner told me I should come check out their huge Star Wars X-Wing nights, when I picked up GMT's Space Empires there last year, but I've never been pulled to X-Wing that much.

Well it's not truly "local" to me at this point -- it's a good two-hour drive from where I live right now -- but I still have to mention the Fantasy Flight Games Center

Awesome store. Board games, minis games, historical books, fantasy/sci-fi books, used games...I have spent literally an entire day in this place on at least one occasion.

Houston has a few good places, but up north where I am, there's a couple of good gaming stores:

Fat Ogre Games and Comics
http://fatogregames.com/
525 Sawdust Rd
Spring, TX 77380
(281) 292-8444

I've been to Fat Ogre a few times in the last several years. They have a pretty large store with lots of tables, mostly for minis games but also 'regular' tables for card and other games. They have a good gaming selection, with a wall devoted just to minis, and a few bookcases full of board games. They have lots of graphic novels, comics, and other stuff too.

There's also this place, though I have never been there. I follow them on Facebook though and they seem to be big on board games:

Ettin Games and Hobbies
http://www.ettingames.com/
241 FM 1960 Bypass Rd. East
Humble, TX 77338
832-644-8802

And as for the rest of town, there's plenty of other stores. I'm not sure of their status. Nan has been a staple of the Houston area for decades and is still going strong. He's pretty close to Rice U, which has a big gamer following among the students (they do something called OwlCon every year). I ganked this info from a post on BGG:

Nan's Games & Comics Too
2011 Southwest Fwy
Houston, TX 77098
(713) 520-8700

Midnight Comics
2505 South Highway 6
Houston, TX 77082
(281) 293-0226

Asgard Games
5016 Kirby Drive
Houston, TX 77005

I just found out that there are 2 new gaming stores locally.  There was nothing but a halfassed Gamehounds and now I have 2 real game shops only 30 minutes away!  Now I know what Indiana Jones felt like when he finally found the Holy Grail.

Vancouver, BC.

Board Game Warriors
http://www.boardgamewarriors.com/

Small store in New Westminster with good prices and they do a lot to host and promote gaming sessions at their store and other venues.

708 Clarkson St
New Westminster, BC
V3M 1E2 CANADA




Imperial Hobbies
http://www.imperialhobbies.ca/

The groggiest of the stores in the area (and the one with the worst website).  Probably the only one that still actively caters to the old school wargamer.

5451 No. 3 Road
Richmond, BC
V6X 2C7




Starlit Citadel
http://www.starlitcitadel.com/games/

Mainly an online-only mail delivery store but they do host open house gaming days once a month.  Good prices (for Canada) and they have some really well done video reviews of games with a couple of decent looking ladies hosting.

61 West 7th Ave
Vancouver, BC
V5Y 1L4



Magic Stronghold
http://www.magicstronghold.com/

Mainly caters to the card game and RPG crowd but also carries a lot of miniatures.  They are open late and have a tonne of tables available for gamers to use.

3665 Kingsway, Unit 185
Vancouver, BC
V5R 5W2



Drexoll Games
http://drexollgames.blogspot.ca/

Not my favourite place.  Kind of a snobby, hipster douche clique vibe to the place but a good selection and others swear by it.

Address: 103-2880 West 4th Ave
Vancouver
