I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

I am going to El Paso, TX in a couple weeks and I was wondering if there were any good games stores worth visit. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Meh, who knows. Something might turn up in this thread. The 'newest' El paso thread in my list is 5 years old...

I have relatives in El Paso, and I have never been able to find a worthwhile game store... I haven't been up in a few years though.

The only decent game shop in El Paso is Sun City Games. The store does most of its business in Magic: The Gathering and table top miniature games, but they have a decent selection of boardgames especially Wizkids and FFG offerings. The guy that owns the shop named Tim is also friendly and I tend to make most of my gaming purchases there. Here's their info:

Sun City Games
1716 East Yandell
El Paso, TX 79902
(915)546-2733

Monday 1pm-6pm
Tues - Thurs, Sat 11am-6pm
Fri 11am - 11pm
Sunday 2:30pm - 6pm


I hope this helps, let me know if you want/need any more info about El Paso for your trip.

-Will

Thanks Will!

I've traveled a good amount for work lately and I love going to other FLGS around the country to see what they are like.

Beware going to Sun City Games. The owner may start off friendly, but rumor is he has a mean streak with some of the local magic players. Banning people, kicking them out of the store, losing his DCI sanctioning.

Sun city games is the best one El Paso has. His board game selection has been getting better and bigger as time goes on.

The game store on Solano in Las Cruces has closed. I have opened a comic book/gaming store in Las Cruces on El Paseo. It's in the same shopping mall as Planet Fitness. Currently we host sanctioned Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, Kaijudo, and Cardfight Vanguard tournaments. We have held StarCityGames Open Trials and are planning to hold a StarCityGames Invitational Qualifier in the near future. I am waiting on Pokemon to complete my OTS paperwork so we can hold sanctioned tournaments. I am looking to branch out into miniatures as well, i.e. WarMachine, Hordes, etc. We are less than an hour's drive from El Paso. You can check us out online at www.ziacomics.com or https://www.facebook.com/zia.comics ....

Quick update. Zia Comics in Las Cruces has just expanded. There are 2 4x8 tables dedicated to miniature war gaming. We also host sanctioned MTG, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Kaijudo, and soon Pokémon. We carry any/all board games. If it isn't in stock just ask us to order it.
