Hey all,

I was recently in Paris and used BGG to find a location of all the game stores in the city. I worked out great, found a bunch. However, I wished that I had a map of them all, so now that I am back, I made one so that others can have it if they ever visit the city (if this has been done, sorry). I hope to make more as I visit places and please feel free to make one for any city. I will make one for Montreal, Quebec, Canada in the near future.

Running List:

Europe

France

Game Stores in Paris, France

North America

USA

Game Stores in Chicago, IL
Game Stores in Los Angeles, CA

Canada

Game Stores in Ottawa, ON
Game Stores in Montreal, QC

Here is my contribution for many of the game stores in and around the Chicagoland area.

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=1167...

It'd be nice to see a centralized collection of maps from all the major metro areas that folks around here travel to. There seem to be no shortage of "I'm going here, where do I buy games..." posts.

thx for starting this,
jeff

There's that really nice gamestoredb site, but it's bugged like you can't add any stores to it. I'm going to work on stores near my area.

Thanks for the help. I was hopping to get a major list going. As they are added, I will edit the first message and keep a running list.

Very cool. How do you create a map like that and save it for future editing? I've not messed with g'maps a ton (except to find something..hehe).

The best way (well only way I know), it to sign up with Google (i.e a gMail account). Once at maps.google.com on the top right, there should be a sign in/sign up link. Once signed in, you can save/edit your maps at any time. To create a "My Maps" click on said link at the left, where the search results are listed.
