It's a bit of a drive, but the best gaming store in the DFW metroplex is Madness Games and Comics in Plano. It has an excellent selection, it's clean, and it has a huge gaming area! Good luck!

Roll 2 Play in coppel is amazing Tiffany the owner is an awesome lady.

Full Spectrum War Games is probably your closest store and is an awesome as well. It's boardgaming is probably the smallest part of it's business as they do a lot of miniature games but check with them and see when their games nights are, they have a decent amount of table space, clean store, great discounts, and friendly staff.

That's from my one time going there when i was in the town. But i highly recommend checking it out.

There is also area 51 i know of i haven't been there, they are in grapevine.

I must add that Madness is in their annual Christmas sale.
Buy 2 get 1 free, from Thanksgiving until Dec 31st.
That makes it well worth the trip.

Generation X comics in Bedford has a great new location. It's no Madness, but it's certainly the best shop this side of town

I can also second Roll 2 Play, and as plenty of said, Madness is worth the trip at least once, even if it's not going to be your regular store.

Collected (http://www.staycollected.com) has a variety of locations across the Metroplex and I know they're good people. For example, the provide an all night venue for our Extra Life marathon every year and ask nothing for it.

Dear all,

As a former international student that lived in the DFW area for 7 years I am coming back for a few days from 28 Jan until 1 Feb. Unfortunately the purpose of my visit is a grave one, but I shall not bother you with that.

My question is where can I go for some good deals on games (specifically Talisman expansions and X-wing (first editon) blisters?

If someone would like to play a game I am in for it. I will probably be staying in Fort Worth or Arlington. I will have a car so no problems getting around.

full spectrum had a lot of xwing stuff and when i was there in november everything was 20% off retail in the store. It didn't look like a special sale, but i didn't ask exactly if it was.
