While my wife was shopping today I took the kids and went on a search for Game Stores within Traverse City Michigan. I found 3 from a google map search for game stores.

Hocus Pocus

http://maps.google.com/maps?near=140+E+Front+St,+Traverse+Ci...

Hocus Pocus is an interesting little store in downtown Traverse City. Its located in the upstairs of a building of smaller stores. Its interesting because there main focus seems to be be costumes and magic tricks followed by used video game systems and video games. Especially old systems. Then they had a bookcase full of RPG books and a decent selection of board games. They had a lot of Mayfair games. All the games were stickered with what I think was MSRP but most had been marked down with a hand written price. I would guess most were marked down about 20% off the sticker. The store was an experience and while I only bought a set of dice I would definitely go back the next time I'm in town.

Fun Factory

http://maps.google.com/maps?near=140+E+Front+St,+Traverse+Ci...

The fun factory had a really good selection of board games, a lot of CCG's, a little comics. 3/4's of the store was set up with tables. Based on checking a few game prices I'd guess they were selling at MSRP. I didn't count but I bet there was room for 50 people to play. There were a few games going on while I was there. I didn't see anyone playing a board game but the store had a large shelf in the back of the store of board games that I think were for playing. The staff were busy so I didn't bother them with questions. I did wonder how much board games were played there.

Mayhem Games

http://maps.google.com/maps?near=140+E+Front+St,+Traverse+Ci...

Mayhem Games was definately a store selling minatures. They had a lot of war hammer stuff. They had 4 large tables set up for gaming and a few games were in progress while I was there. The guy behind the counter was very friendly and wanted to chat. They only had 2 board games, Talisman and Munchkin. Apparently Talisman is this guys favorite game and he told me all about it.
