Hi,

So far I found one old thread that suggested one place Enigmas but it looked like the poster was not impressed with the store.

Google was the opposite I searched for board game stores in houston and found a glut of results with varying degrees of relevancy.

I'm hoping people can help me narrow this down.

Ideally good prices would be nice but more importantly a wide selection is more important since I have access to a lot of games living in Toronto, Canada. Even better would be if the store carries harder to find games.

Thanks in advance!

Where in Houston? Houston is over 50 miles across. Are you looking to game there or just buy games?

Midnight Comics (http://midnightcomics.com/) on the west side has a large selection of games and space to play. The Houston Gamers (http://board.houstongamers.org/) meet there from noon to midnight on the first Saturday of every month.

Nan's in central Houston has games but no play space.

Skirmish games (http://skirmishgamestx.com/) in Deer Park near SE Houston has some games and place space.
Montag's Games (http://www.myspace.com/montagsgames) in Pearland near south central Houston, also, has games and play space.

Enigma Games closed.

I am only familiar with Nan's. Pretty good selection, but yes, no gaming space.

Cool. I would have added them myself, but sometimes google maps can be WAY off.

Thanks guys.

I realize Houston is a big place but my friend is willing to drive me to any store in Houston so no problem.

Gaming space is not important just interested in finding a rare find. Nothing in particular but just looking to explore a gaming market that is so far away from me (Toronto) and one that I won't be back for a little while.
