I'm heading up to Seattle from Portland this weekend, and I can't seem find a list of retailers. Any advice on "must visit" game shops in the area?

Any shop that carries used games or features lots of military miniatures would be a bonus!

Cardhaus - 5 min north of Seattle in Lynnwood, they don't have much of a showroom, but they do have cheep-cheep prices.

Here's the shops I know of that haven't been mentioned:

http://www.greenlakegames.com/ - Pretty small, pretty good selection and prices. Don't sell used, but they have a lot of open games that they gladly demo. Attached to the developer Bucephalus Games, so they push them a bit. Kachina is my favorite of their games that I've played.

http://www.berserkgames.com/ - Much bigger,though their website is appearing kind of broken this morning. They're in Greenwood (very close to the above store, actually). I want to say they might have used games, or at least some sort of discount games section. I've only been in once so far, so I can't recall.

http://pugetbridgesupply.com/ - I don't know why the URL says what it does either. This is another place near the two above. I recommend it the least, as it seems to always be the most expensive. Really close to Gorditos though, so I stumble in frequently while in a Burrito-fueled-bliss.


http://mygamesngizmos.com/ - I am almost positive this is the place I stumbled into one time over in Redmond. It was the biggest game store I've been in in the area, with lots of Magic cards and lost of Miniatures too. Staff was really unhelpful, but they were hosting some sort of Magic tourney at the time, so I can forgive them.

http://gammaraygamestore.com/ - This place is up in Cap Hill. I haven't been in yet, as I'm usually only in the area light at night and/or drunk. It looked pretty nice from the window, though of course, that was through beer goggles

I though Games and Gizmo's shut down but according to their website they've moved.

Don't go looking for them in their old location.

You might want to check out American Eagles Hobbies.

They have quite selection of military mini's along one wall.

They have also some older OOP stuff scattered around the store.

They don't seem to have a website but you can get some information here

The bridge place is Gary's Games on Greenwood. They have used stuff, but not much miniatures.

The other one I don't see listed is American Eagles on Lake City Way. Lots of old AH games that no one really wants, (think things like Dr. Ruth's Game of Good Sex, Guerilla, that era of AH fail), some used games. They have a lot of model stuff, railroads and slot cars, so my guess is they would have more minis than most.

Thanks so much to all for the guidance! I'll make sure I get to some of these shops.

Is anyone familiar with Panzer Depot in Kirkland?

Check out this thread http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/170837/local-brick-morta..., I don't know when it was updated last though. My personal pick is Pheonix Games up in Mukilteo. http://phoenixgamesandgifts.com/default.aspx

Dragon's Lair in Bellevue is new and upcoming.

It's my new FLGS and they go out of their way to get me games that they haven't heard of.
