Hello,

I will be visiting Detroit this December/January and would like some tips on where to shop for games in this city. Don't be shy with your recommendations.

There's also:
http://www.allthekingsmenchess.com/ in Warren, which is mostly for chess, but has a section (labeled "Brain Games"), though sadly the person who ran the Brain Games part is no longer there (as far as I know)
and
http://www.guildofblades.com/gobstore-madisonheights-mi.php in Madison Heights
if you're going to be closer to that side of Detroit

Otherwise RIW looked pretty good, though I've only had the chance to stop by once myself

I too toss my support for RIW in Livonia. Great selection, great service.

If you're into mini's/wargaming and such, there IS Pandamonium over in Garden City (Ford Road/Middlebelt if memory serves).

And Vault of Midnight I believe is still out in the Ann Arbor region, but that's a haul. Although, sometimes when folks say "Detroit" they're really in the "Detroit Area" and really could be as close to Ann Arbor as they are to anywhere else in the "Metro Detroit" area
