I have a friend who is looking for some games who lives in Lansing, Michigan. She has a young son who is in grade 2 whom she is wanting to get some games for.

Any suggestions on a good FLGS?

Best one in the area is in East Lansing: 21st Century Comics, located on Grand Rver Avenue. It's a little difficult to see, being located on the upper level of a two-story strip mall.

I agree. It's a nice, clean store with a decent selection of board games and a pleasant staff. It's one of the few game stores that my wife doesn't mind visiting with me.

Both are good stores, though 21st has a little bit better of a selection. Both have helpful employees.

I'm from Lansing originally... what is Evolution located near? I mean, I see where it is on the map. What plaza/anchor store is it by? I should stop by after Thanksgiving shopping...

It is a few blocks west of the Lansing Mall, on the other side of the street, and is located at the end of a small strip mall (IIRC, about 3 stores).

If anyone out there is still interested in this Clem's Games is a great shop in the heart of lansing, about a block south of the traffic circle on Michigan Ave, the store is on S Washington Ave.

I visited Evolution over Thanksgiving break last year-- They have a good selection of board games and war games-- several cool D&D session rooms and a couple of sweet "stand and play" tables for miniatures.

I was disappointed, though, that I browsed for 15 minutes and not a single employee said "hello," "can I help you," or "welcome to our store!"
