Are there any FLGS to be found anywhere near Mason City, Iowa? The database shows the nearest one being about 70 miles away.

I'm up here for 2 more days visiting in-laws and wouldn't mind a "souvenir" to take back home to the good ole' South!

edit: someone needs to invent "sweet" Tea up here. Adding sugar after it's cold is NOT the same. Also, it's not a breakfast "buffet" if there are no grits!

Why did the painter paint the wall for free? Because it was on the house.

I was in Oak Leaf Comics in Mason City several years ago and they had some board games and CMGs at that time. I don't know how they're stocked these days, but if you're in the area, you could check there.

Too late, but awesome thread. Thanks for sharing.

I got reports from some locals that the above mentioned Oak Leaf Collectibles does indeed stock boardgames. I unfortunately did not get to check it out.

Yes they do have a small boardgame collection. They also sell collectible Barbie Dolls and other toys like that, so my wife doesn't mind it when I browse a little longer in the comic book aisles.

I don't know if anyone is still collecting this info for the map, but Now & Then is much more game focused than Oakleaf. They are even moving into a new building as of November 4th in order to more than double their gaming table space because the community has grown so much.

1531 4TH ST SW
Mason City, IA
(The building with the blue roof trim, right behind KFC)
