Is Phoenix Rising in Waterford, MI still in business? I stopped by there a few weeks ago and it was closed for the weekend. Their web site has been down ever since.

Are there any good board game stores in metro Detroit? Seems like there's been a big vacuum ever since Alcove Hobbies closed their door.

RIW in on 5 mile in Livonia has a good pretty good selection and space for gaming.

Further southwest towards AA and Ypsi see this thread:

Its just that - RIW Hobbies. Dont know what it stands for though.

Old Guard Hobbies has stores in Westland/Garden City and Sterling Heights.

Dont know about Phoenix, just moved to the Commerce area and was wondering if there are any stores up this way.

I'm in West Bloomfield, not too far from Commerce. Phoenix Rising is (was?) at Huron and Cass Lake in Waterford. Mostly RPG and miniatures, but they usually have a few decent board games.

I've been to Blue Dragon in Sterling Heights. They, too are mostly RPG and miniatures, with a small assortment of board games.

BTW, there's a monthly board gaming group in Royal Oak. Lots of really nice people. The next gathering is on July 30.

There is always Masquerade Games at 10 mile and I-94. I have shopped with them for a long time. They don't stock many games but they will order anything for you and get it in a couple days most times.

RIW are the initials of the store owner's father. She dedicated the store's name in his honor.
