Check out Titan Games in Battle Creek (not out of your way if you're travelling from Kalamazoo to Jackson).

In Grand Rapids, there are several:

Apparitions Comics & Books
2757 Ridgemoor Dr SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49512

They don't have much for games, they're primarily a used book/comic dealer.


The Outer Limits
1120 Burton SW
Wyoming, MI 49509

A mix of different things. A decent game selection, comics, etc.


White Cap Comics
430 Cummings Ave NW
Grand Rapids, Mi 49534

A very good selection of games and comics. I demo Steve Jackson Games products on Monday nights from 5:00pm to close. You're more than welcome to stop on by if it fits your schedule. (Yes, it's a shameless plug, and yes I realize not everyone likes SJG products.)

They used to have some interesting OOP stuff that hadn't sold, although I'm responsible for cleaning out their inventory of old Robo Rally expansions, We the People, and the AH edition of Hannibal. (They still have some decent things left!)

They have very limited hours lately, at least daytime during the week. On the other hand, if you are going to Riders, Outer Limits is only about 3 miles away from there, just off 131, and probably not too far out of your way in case you go and they're closed.

Discount Hobby in the Target Plaza near Lakeview Square Mall (exit 98A off of I-94) is still my FLGS/comic shop, even after I moved two hours away. Steve (the owner) is a wonderful guy. Last time I was there, he had Mayfair, Days of Wonder, Cheapass, and Steve Jackson well represented with selection. He's also got quite a bit of MTG and Pokemon, if that's your thing.

Also seconding the Kalamazoo recommendations for Fanfare and the Game Shop.

In Grand Rapids, there's White Cap Comics (3916 West River Drive in Comstock Park) and their sister store the Outer Limits (1120 Burton SW). Both shops are closed Sunday, and the Outer Limits is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. White Cap's is the larger and more game-oriented store, IIRC...haven't been out there in a while.

That's all I know of offhand...

WOW awesome responses !!!!!

Thanks all!! I will have quite a few hours in the afternoons, sounds like I won't have to wonder what I am going to do with that off time.

Thank you for your responses, and I still look forward to any others as I am not leaving for a couple of weeks yet (lots of time to map out and figure out hours and all that good stuff). And thanks Dmart for the Battle Creek input never thought to ask about that, I will stop in and check them out also!

Nothing to apologize over. I'd just hate to see the OP (or anyone for that matter) show up at the old address and be surprised.

Since I see that you're from Oakland County, other places en route to western Michigan along the I96 corridor are Heroscape Comics in Howell and 21st Century Comics in East Lansing.

Everyone beat me to to it but Fanfare is my FLGS - and FLCS actually, err, just generally an awesome place . If you tell 'em Van sent ya they'll charge ya double Titan is worth a stop and it's on your way (assuming you are coming across 94). Discount Hobby is also worth a stop for sure.

If you are around on a weekend hit us up and maybe we can get a game in.
Cheers,
Van
