Just wanted to introduce our game store - Canton Games. We are located in Baltimore city, and have over 250 different board games in stock at any time, the largest selection in the area.

In addition, we give 10% off retail price - all the time - on all board games. Plus, we have a frequent buyer program that allows our customers to earn additional discounts.

For pre-orders or special orders, we give 20% off retail and they also earn credit towards the buyer program.

Great prices and amazing selection. Please drop by and support your local store.

I can attest to this, and will go so far as to endorse my FLGS. Very comprehensive on-hand selection, from straightforward family-type games, through Euros, Ameritrash titles, and a decent stock of wargames. I have purchased Alhambra expansions, Runebound expansions, and Descent expansions from them, not to mention ASL Starter Kit #3. Next time I get out there, I'll probably snag a Kingsport Horror. Well worth the occasional run out to Canton.

Very fast special-order fulfillment, too: I ordered the PoG Players' Guide from them on a Sunday, received it in the mail by Friday. They're very professional, and know their market well. Highly recommended.

I think it needs to be stressed just how fast the special orders are at Canton Games. I ordered some Warmachine figures one afternoon and they were there THE NEXT DAY. I'm glad these guys moved into the downtown area, Baltimore has been sorely in need of a game store. It's not a gaming dungeon, so you can send your parents there. Get down there and check it out.

There was a discussion that I was reading the other day about supporting local FLGS or using web stores and I was going to mention Canton Games as a part of that discussion. However, since Brian is introducing himself and Canton Games today, I will put my two cents in now. I discovered this store late last year and now it is pretty much my go-to place for all of my board gaming purchases. I always find what I want on my visits and like the others have said, they can get special orders pretty quickly. Brian's wife, Candy, got me hooked on Ticket to Ride and now my family plays it at least once a week. I would definately recommend this store to anyone living in or visiting the Baltimore area.

I wish more game stores would do this, it cuts into profit, but it's a no-risk endeavor.

I believe it would draw a lot more people back to the B&Ms over online retailers, provided they could guarentee that they'd get the games (something my own FLGS has issue with).

I had a really good experience with Canton games (Dan). My boss traveled to Baltimore so I asked her to bring me some games. I was searching for a long time some expansions for WOW the adventure game and to my surprise this shop had several of them. I didn't have enough time to send the games to her so Dan offered to drop them off on his way back....I just couldn't believe it. Thank you Dan again!

Dan's shop is my favorite Baltimore hangout. He's introduced me to a plethora of games and he's a fountain of knowledge when it comes to gaming. Saturday is open gaming day so it's a great opportunity to try out a new game or learn how to play an old one.

Dan is also very knowledgeable and great with recommendations! I have often asked him what I want to buy, given him a few parameters, and walked out with a great game. Great shop, great people!
