not in el paso.
In Las Cruces, there is a store called Coas: my bookstore.
about 1/4 of my collection was obtained through them.
In el paso, you have Sunrise Games, but the area of town is not exactly where I would want to hang out.

Now if you need a recommendation on restaurants or touristy things to do, I'd be more than happy to illuminate you, as there is plenty to do (AND EAT) in and around El Paso.

LOL. I'm an El Paso native (graduated Irvin High Class of 1990) now living in Idaho (via CA, HI, Guam, Marshall Islands, CO, ID, OR, and back to ID). During one of the many times I visited my family still in El Paso, I tried searching for stores that carry supplies for my hobbies - games and Radio Control cars, helis, and planes. I found one hobby store that carried RC stuff but it was RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. I found ZERO game stores. Sorry!

I just now did a "games" search on dexonline and had a few "hits" but they give no indication of game types. They could be billiards, casino, or dart supplies rather than boardgames.

You also might want to go to the websites of popular game publishers and use their store locater service to find stores in El Paso.

You could also view this as your chance to open a dedicated gaming store in an underserved market. BTW, if you strike it rich opening a FLGS in El Paso, I think I deserve a lifetime 50% discount for planting this idea in your mind.

Although this is too late for the OP's request, I'm in El Paso on business at the moment and I visited Sunrise Games & Comics this evening. It's not a bad little place. A decent smattering of RPGs and a few boardgames. A goodly amount of collectible minis games, which appears to be a focus for them at the moment. They have a number of tables for in-store gaming, including a couple with plexiglas tops over Star Wars Minis maps. They also have a sizable collection of Star Wars and Mage Knight minis available for loan to help get new players into things. It's not a fantastic store, but it's not bad.

Sun city games is the best one. They have a good and growing selection of board games.
