There used to be a really good game store in Trolly Square in Salt Lake City. We come here to visit every summer and its gone now. Anyone know if it moved or just went out of business?

Thanks

Alas, they are no more. They closed down, it wasn't a move. As far as what to recommend to replace it, I guess that depends on what you are looking for.

It went out of business. If you're looking for a good game store to visit in SLC, I recommend Game Night Games over in Sugarhouse:

http://www.gamenightgames.com


In fact, tonight (Wednesday) is one of the big game nights during the week at the store. We're open until 10:30 so, if you're still in the area, come on over and have some fun. It usually starts around 7:00 pm.

Wow, thanks for the two lightning fast responses. I'm looking for a good selection of new games (Geek games not Monopoly) and old stuff. That was the good thing about the Trolley Square store is that you could usually find find an OOP gem.
Thanks for the suggestions on Game Night Games. I'll try them out.

FWIW, I recently did a little article on Game Night Games when I visited SLC a couple of months ago.

Actually, hardly any article I write is all that "little".

Just to clarify on the first issue. The game store in Trolley Square was one of four stores under the name of End Zone Cards and Comics. John's first store was Bountiful, then Layton, and sometime later in Trolley Square in Salt Lake area and Newgate Mall in Ogden. All these stores have been closed and he now has a large store in Clearfield. It is still called End Zone and he has a great selection of games.
