I googled and found some info at this blog:
http://citizennickhobbycenter.blogspot.com/2008/06/new-game-...

"There have been rumor bouncing around locally-based web forums (Like Adeptus Windy City) that there is a new game store in Evanston. Ok, it's not Chicago, but it's pretty close. Plus, It's a independent game store not a GW store (No offence Jeff and crew of GWOP).

I made a trip to said store this week, and here I am to report back to you, my loyal readers (btw, if you're a loyal reader who doesn't live in the Chicagoland area, go read ++From the Warp++ or something).

Here's the facts: Gamer's Asylum, 611 Dempster, Evanston. www.gmasylum.com

Hey, I know where that is! I might be there Wednesday night trying to convince the store owner to start up a weekly board game night.

I dropped by the other day, purely by chance...

They stock mostly Games Workshop stuff, a few RPG things as well as other minis. games. I didn't see any boardgames.

They have an (unfinished) website at: www.gmasylum.com
