Can anyone recommend good game stores in Southern California? Let's have the list be anything between Santa Barbara and Orange County.

I'll start: The Name of the Game in Camarillo, (805) 389-3433. Very nice shop owner.


(btw - sometime, someplace I asked this before, and got a lot of nice answers, but after an hour of searching I can't find it.)

Brookhurst Hobbies in lovely, ack, Garden Grove (which is neither a garden nor a grove) has been around forever. It has been years since I visited the shop, but they usually had a very wide selection of materials (everything from RC planes to miniatures) and some decent gaming space. Check them out on the web:

If you are in the area ( about 2 miles from Disneyland), it is worth a visit.

Another store in a not so wonderful area is The War House in Long Beach on Willow Street about a mile east of the 710 freeway. They've been around a long time (and their stock shows it) and they are really nice guys who stock a tremendous amount of stuff (designer, RPG, card, minature, war games and more).

Another I always forget about is The Last Grenadier in Burbank. They've also been around a long time and moved to a new location a little more than a year ago (I think) so it's pretty cleaned up. They are on Hollywood Way at Clark Ave. about a mile north of the 134 Freeway (there is no Hollywood Way exit though have to get off on Pass make a right and then make a left on Alemeda and then a left on Hollywood Way). They have a fairly large stock and of course will order for you what they can get.

Very friendly owner, really knows how to run a game store. Friendly atmosphere, outgoing staff, not a bad collection. Quick to recommend and demonstrate a game which is just what I want to see in a game store.
