No game stores I know of, but eat at Houston's if you get the chance. Really good food.

It's off Jamboree Rd just south of the 405 in the shopping center.

Re: In Irvine next week
Comic Quest- Warhammer, okay selection of new games, and a couple older ones, some rpgs
Brookhurst Hobbies- big selection of games, both old and new, both euro and wargame, Warhammer, Confrontation, and AT-43 minis, tons of rpgs
The War House- decent selection of wargames, old and new, okay selection euros, some used games, tons of RPGs

Google for addresses and distances. Dunno how far you want to travel. I think Brookhurst is worth the drive, but YMMV.

Re: In Irvine next week
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to get there.

BTW, I'm willing to drive a bit so even if it's north or south I'll check it out.

Re: In Irvine next week
OK, now I'm confused... Irvine is a horrible little dive on the west coast of Scotland, near Ayr...

For those that were confused, I edited the title.

It's not worth it - I only live an hour away and I can't think of a reason to go!

Karl's right, I was going to reccomend Comic Quest and brookhurst but he beat me to it. I was just at CQ 20 minutes ago, I've noticed that lately they are getting better with board games. Also, 2 minutes away from there down El Toro in the Laguna hills Mall is Game master, they are often having one of their "buy get one at half price" sales. Great Euro selection there.

Never been to the war house.

I'll check out Game Master too since I'll actually be in Lake Forest which is pretty close to there.

If you want to game, check out www.ocbg.net - Orange County Board Gamers is based in Irvine and although you will miss their big monthly event (since it is on 8/9 - tomorrow), their site lists many other weekly events in the area. A very nice group of people.
