Greetings, soon going to a family gathering in the Outerbanks of North Carolina. Any good game stores nearby? Thanks much!

Use the Game Store locator.

...but it looks like you are out of luck unless you stop enroute in the Raleigh-Durham area.

I do suggest that you try Oklahoma City if you are driving.

I take my family to the Outer Banx every year. There is NOTHING down there but single-family houses grouped into little villages as you travel south toward Ocracoke.

The one bet I would I have wagered on was something in Kitty Hawk, which you have to travel through (don't forget to stop at the Wright Brothers memorial). But I couldn't find anything, not even a comic store in my online searches. You might have better luck.

I just pack a large bin of games when we go, and prey on my wife and daughters for game time in the evenings.

You will have a blast down there. Its very quiet and peaceful, and I hope it stays that way. But definitely visit the memorial, the lighthouses, and Blackbeard's stuff on Ocracoke.

Thanks, most helpful. Raleigh seems the best best, given my flight path....

I'm visiting OBX this week with my family, and found a gameshop in Kitty Hawk. They had more puzzles than games, but did carry a small selection of good boardgames (Blokus, Apples to Apples, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, LOTR)along with the Battle of the Sexes stuff.

The shop is hidden in the corner of a two story strip mall just off the highway. If you're driving East thru Kitty Hawk, you'll see Capt. Frank's hot dog stand on the right. Pull into the Captain's parking lot, and drive thru to the back where you'll see the shop upstairs.

I know this is an old thread but it was the to p search result, so I figured it was worth a plug for Leviathan in Southern Shores (http://leviathanobx.com/). Went there for the first time in this vacation and I will certainly be back. It is great to have a true game store in OBX now.
