I'm visiting Orlando, Kissimmee, and Ocoee this weekend. Can anyone suggest a good shop in this area?

Thanks for the tip! I've never been to one of their brick and mortar locations. Do they have a good selection? Good prices?

Prices are the same as online. Haven't been in years but they had computers set up so you could order on the spot. Whole warehouse on site, so selection is also top notch.

There's also Sci Fi City and Coliseum of Comics, but judging by online prices, Cool Stuff Inc. is probably your best bet.

Also, this place called Gods & Monsters looks really cool: http://www.yelp.com/biz/gods-and-monsters-orlando-3. I've never been there before, but it looks fun.

My favorite board game store that I visited when I lived in FL was Emerald City in Clearwater, FL: http://emeraldcitycomics.com/. However, I will say that I wasn't big in the hobby at the time, so I never visited Cool Stuff Inc's physical store.

Thanks! I will check into those as well.

If you want to visit a cool store and browse through their games, coolstuffinc is NOT the place to go. It was just a bunch of tables for people to play magic and if you wanted to buy a game, they had computers for you to order those on. Still great prices, but not much of a store imo.

So? Is there a store to browse through their games in Miami/Orlando?
