Hi all

I will be making a work-related trip to Veags shortly (darn!!), and was wondering if anyone here knew of a decent game store somewhat near the Strip?? I alsways like to pick something up whenever I go out of town as a momento, but I won't have too much spare time to search around. If anyone knows of anything, please either PM me or throw a reply down below.

Thanks, Chris

I haven't been to Vegas in 2 years. But, last time I was there, the only game store of quality that I found was on the west side of the city, 5-6 miles from the strip. IIRC, it was on Buffalo. I just can't recall the name of the store.

I'm planning to attend Vegas Conquest in April, and hope to be able to stop over there sometime while I'm in the city.

If you like your more "traditional" gaming places (read: casino games) check out the Gambler's General Store, about 1/2 way between the Stratosphere & Freemont street (take a taxi or drive). Good place for cards, dice, poker chips, etc... impressive surface area if nothing else so it's at least fun for a stop.

I also heartily recommend the Gambler's General Store. A cornucopia of dice, cards, and other accessories for any casino game under the sun! We picked up a nice acrylic card shoe, some nicely weighted poker chips and layouts for craps and blackjack for a very reasonable price. Even small things like cut cards and delaer buttons, they have in multiple colors and styles. There are also many high end gaming items that can provide several hours of window shopping fun.

Saddly, there is little in the way of gaming stores here (in Las Vegas). In another thread there was mention of a place called Horsehead way out on the West side of town, Buffalo and Flamingo, nowhere near the Strip. If anyone else knows of a place, I'd love to know about it.

Actually there are a few gaming stores in Vegas. I lived there for 6 years and recently moved to Ohio. Anyway, Hoseheads Hobbies is on Buffalo near Flamingo....except that they sold out to another owner and its now called Little Shop of Magic. There is also a store called Dark TOwer Comics. Not sure on location as I heard they moved recently. There is also a HobbyTown USA on Sahara. Iheard there is also a newer store out bythe air force base somewhere. (FYI none of the stores are close to the strip...you'll have to drive or take a bus)

Unfortunately you may or may not find any gaming going on at these stores. This is due to the fact that many gamers in Vegas game at their homes. (we had such rotten luck with local retailers for soo long that clubs started forming and just playing out of converted garages) There are several large clubs in Vegas. You can look at Yahoo for the group called Las Vegas Gamers Club. Post a message there and tell them when you'll be in town, what you like to play etc. Hopefully someone will respond.
