A gaming buddy of mine is going to be visiting NYC tomorrow. He just sent me an email asking if there were any FLGSs near Times Square. (he's taken an empty suitcase with him )

Any suggestions?

There are none that I know of near Times Square. The closest (and the best) that I can point you to is The Compleat Strategist at 11 East 33rd Street (between Madison and Fifth Avenue). Their phone number is 212-685-3880. Their hours are:
Monday-Wednesday - 10:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Friday-Saturday - 10:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Thursday - 10:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Sunday - Closed

The Compleat Strategist is only a 15-minute walk from Times Square. Just follow the Empire State Building. It's less than a block away from it.

Doon't know if this can be read in time, but - to top it off,

- Neutral Ground is pretty much on the way to the Strategist from Times Square

- both are fairly easily located by follwing Broadway straight south/down to their respective streets and heading west/right on 37th (for Neutral Ground) and east/left on 33rd (for the Strategist).

- both stores are just a couple minutes walk from the Herald Square subway station, serviced by the F-D-B (Orange) and N-R (Yellow) routes, which cut through some fairly popular tourist areas/hotel districts (Times Square, Greenwich Village, Union Square, Rockefeller Plaza/Radio City Music Hall, etc.)

- for better or worse, they're almost all NYC has to offer for boardgames, and likely all a traveler/tourist should consider - there's 1 or 2 decent stores left in the outer boroughs, but 'outer' means a good hour's comute from Manhattan. OTOH, the Strategist is the flagship store of a tri-state operation over 20 years old, so it's fairly well-stocked and pretty definitive...
