A new store just opened up at the Great Northern Mall in North Olmsted called "I'M GAME". Miss Panda and I went there and I won a Catan tournament (2 games) for $25 of store credit which I spent to get the new expansion for MEMOIR 44'. The owner is Mike and he really enjoys games with his wife Wendy so they opened up the shop to promote and play. Stop by and play one of the many games they keep open on their shelves if you're in the area.

How different is the store compared to The Game Keeper (the WotC chain store)? And what sort of stuff do they have there?

As opposed to he WotC store (which closed it's doors there several years ago) Their shop is aimed directly at the Boardgame Market and Eurogame specifically. They've had the most complete in-store inventory of Eurogames that I've come across. Where our other local stores stock a few shelves to keep us coming back, here's a whole store of boardgaming goodness

There's a nice in-store library and the owners are willing to take the time to teach you to play a game you're interested in.

Kudos to them...

Good news! Thanks for posting it. Is the store in the mall proper, or in the surrounding shopping center? What is it near?

I hope they make it. Game stores have not had a great track record at that mall. The Keep and the WotC store both lasted only a couple of years.

In the side hall that was closest to where Fridays used to be. It's near the Dick's entrance to the mall proper.
