I thought this was a great story on BoardGameNews:

http://www.boardgamenews.com/index.php/boardgamenews/comment...

Anyone heard of any other game stores that rent out games like this?

I interviewed Dave Holt, the owner of the store in question, on Boardgame Babylon's "The Demise and Rise of the FLGS" series last year and highlighted his cool ideas. It just happens to be my own FLGS. He is on Volume 21.

If I rememeber right, this is the game store owner featured as part of "Rise and Decline of the FLGS" Boardgame Babylon podcast series.

edit: crossposted! laugh and I mixed up the podcast series title with the old punk rock documentary "Rise and Decline of Western Civilization, Vol. 1"

DragonsLair in Stockholm has that rent games there thing, but also is the place for boardgame meetups so when I have been there renting games haven't been needed. Mind you it isn't exactly an FLGS as it isn't aimed at selling game mostly but being a place to play (many types) games

Translated from the Swedish homepage (nope nothing English on it)

"To afford the premises we have to charge a membership-fee, but because Dragons Lair is a member of Sverok we gain contribution from each member and the fee for you as a member is only 40sek per year"
