I'm going to be visiting a relative in a few weeks, and I'd love to check out some local game stores while I'm there. I'll also be in Chicago and Detroit for a few days, so if there are any good stores in those cities, please let me know.

The two I go to in the Detroit area are Guild of Blades in Madison Heights and RIW Hobbies in Livonia. There's also Vault of Midnight in Ann Arbor.

I've heard good things about Out of the Box in Zeeland, but I've never been there.

If you will be near Grand Rapids, defintely stop at Out of the Box in Zeeland!

I have to say that, because I own it and think it's pretty neat.

That's borderline advertising, but I don't mind.

The Dice Dojo in Chicago, on the north side, is the best game store I have been to. A must if you are in the area. As far as the Detroit area, RIW has a great selection of games, they also do a game night during the week but the owner is one of those people that has no customer relation skills, just flat out rude to be honest. I have a hard time giving her my business but it's the only real game in town.
If you are in Toledo, the guys at the Boards and Bits warehouse are very friendly and willing to show you around. They don't have an actual store front, but just seeing that warehouse full of games is worth the trip, plus it puts some faces to the names as I love using Boards and Bits, their customer service is excellent!

Enjoy your trip to the area!
