Hiya folks!

My girlfriend and I are about to head over to to sunny Florida on our holidays.

Can anyone out there recommend a good game store in the Disney/Kissimmee/Orlando area?

Thanks!

Iain

Never been there, but they have a large web presence and sell extensively in the BGGM.

I'd check out http://www.coolstuffgames.com/

Their online store is great (both selection and prices). But I haven't been to the bricks and mortar operation.

The best in the area, in my opinion, is coolstuffinc. Their web site is for the Orlando Store is coolstuffgames.com. Great inventory, its a live inventory so you can look at it at the coolstuffinc.com web page, and even better prices. In my opinion, SciFiCity has been going down hill for years in terms of selection, is a full retail shop, and their selection of board games is not even close to coolstuff's.

There is also Colosseum of Comics in Kissimmie which is more the Disney area. I've only been in their local mall store and left unimpressed (dead collectible games above retail other games at or above retail). I've never been to their main store so I can't tell you what that one is like, but it is closest to the disney area.

Coolstuff would be your furthest drive, but not much further than SciFi, but definitely worth the drive.

Take care and enjoy your trip.

Hey, thanks for choosing Florida You should get a lot of sun, but expect some heat and humidity -- it's been a hot season!

I'd also go with Cool Stuff, just for the selection.

Here's what I found out on my trip to the same place: Cool Stuff Inc, Orlando Store, - is it worth an in-person visit?
