Friendly Local Game Stores

I found a friendly local game store (FLGS) from the California store list for Mayfair Games (U.S. publisher of Settlers of Catan, among other fine games). It’s called Paradox Playground and it’s just down the street. Though the boardgame selection is rather limited, it is the source of my copy of Carcassonne: The City (pictured above), for which it deserves major super mega props. There’s much more there if you’re into wargaming and minature painting and the like. And, they have a Yahoo Group.

For a really good selection, I recommend Games of Berkeley. It’s packed with great stuff, and it’s just two stores down from Jupiter. Bit of a distance from San Jose, but that just gives me an excuse to visit Dave.
