Game store discussion!

Recommended Posts

We posed a discussion over on our discord and were curious as it was a very interesting conversation about the stock and landscape of people FLGS's around the country and world! If you want and are interested could you format a reply with the following:
Location:  store location / Name of game store / What products they carry related to the hobby.
           
             Ex: Dallas, texas / Bob's hobbys / Valejo, Warhammer, citadel, reaper bones.... ETC

Fort Smith, Arkansas / Game Nation / Some Wiz Kids, GW Paints and Minis, books, videos, and I think used video games.

 

I only went there once looking to see if they carry Bones, and they were a friendly and welcoming crew, but they seem more focused on MTG and Warhammer. Sadly we don't have any other game stores closer than an hour that I know of.

Vancouver BC, Canada / Drexoll Games / Board games, puzzles, RPGs, Vallejo paint, WizKids and Reaper minis and a few minor old ones and a few historical. Emphasis on board games and RPGs. Space in back to play games.

 

Vancouver BC, Canada / Strategy Games & Hobby / Board games, RPGs, Games Workshop Stuff, Vallejo and Games Workshop paint. GW, Dark Sword, Reaper, Secret Weapon, Horde, perhaps 6-12 other minis brands, less represented? Mostly GW, but enough Dark Sword and basing stuff to keep me happy. Small Reaper selection. Space for gaming in the back.

 

Richmond BC, Canada / Imperial Hobby / SO MUCH. Huge wall of Reaper stuff (metal and bones). Tons of GW. Micro Art Studio Bases. Modeling kits. Model train stuff. Historical wargaming galore. Lots of terrain building stuff. Board games like mad. Vallejo, GW, Tamiya, Army Painter, Testors.... but Reaper and S75 are conspicuously absent from their paint selection.

Oh wow, that's my FLGS! Good to meet a fellow Minnesotan! I think Source has a pretty great mini selection. And they do classes too!

ProSoul Games

Ontario OR

 

Ashton & his wife are magnificent people that run a game store that caters to ccgers & rpgers & board gamers.

 

As far as hobby product, the store mostly stocks GW (paints & minis) but he does have a good selection of Wizkids unpainted & 2 good size bins of single prepaints. He does have a small assortment of Army Painter products but the big thing is he can order & it'll be in the store in roughly 2 or 3 days if it's in stock. Very little in terms of Reaper product but that is due to a personal problem he has in getting the items. I've told him Reaper does direct sales but he doesn't want to go that route...yet.

 

RPG he has the standards of 5e & Pathfinder. He has a small assortment of other rpgs but again, if it's out there he can probably order it & get it in a few days. He does have small assortment of used rpgs & such (I seen him telling a employee to put back a couple of older 3.5 D&D books for someone last night.

 

The store also has a great snack & refreshment assortment as well + a movie-style popcorn machine!!! (no need to pay movie theater prices for popcorn now!!)

 

No video games at all (hence the name of the store, "Pro"s & "Con")!!

Clive IA / Mayhem Comics / Comics, a huge selection of board games, collectible card games and RPGs, GW, FFG, and Privateer Press minis/games, several other smaller minis games, a full wall of Wizkids minis, and even more Reaper Bones minis. Paints stocked are GW and Army Painter - I wish they would pick up Reaper MSP.

 

They have a pretty decent sized gaming room on one side, and are currently remodeling the Thai restaurant that shut down on the other side of them as a new and bigger gaming space. Not sure what they're going to do with the current gaming space.
