I don't know about Des Moines, but if you ever make it as far West as Council Bluffs, Iowa or Omaha, Nebraska, I can direct you to several great game stores. You could get some gaming in with our group as well.

By no means go out of your way, but if your business takes you West, look me up.

Okay, I did some research on Des Moines area game stores and gaming and from the handful of threads I found on the subject here on BGG, it would appear the two best choices, perhaps the only choices, are the following stores. Both Games'N'More and Mayhem are apparently highly regarded.

Mayhem Comics, Cards and Games
7500 University Ave.
Des Moines, IA 50325
(515) 271-8104
Hours: Mon-Thu 10-8
Friday 10-10
Saturday 10-8
Sunday 11-7

Games'N'More
1551 Valley West Dr
West Des Moines, IA 50266
(515) 267-8222
(In Valley West Mall)

advertises some Des Moines area gaming gatherings. You might want to shoot him a geekmail with questions as well.

Both stores are well stocked. Games'N'More probably has more selection of board games. Mayhem has a decent selection of board games, but also carries War Hammer, Warmachine, and Magic-type games. Mayhem also has game nights, but don't know what they play when.

Board game night at Mayhem is Thursday night unless it changed recently.

Games and More has some rarer games and OOP games occasionally because they don't sell games very quickly. Right now they have a copy of Belfort by Tasty Minstrel Games, and more I'm sure.

Thanks a lot for your advice! Sounds like Games and more must be a store to visit. Not fare away from Jordan Creek mall eighter, and I know my wife will go there, and I can drop her of to go to Valley West mall;-)
