Hi All

Got a vacation lined up towards the end of January, based in Sarasota. Would love to bring back a couple of games and wondered if any kind and knowledgeable Geeks know of any stores in the area?

Help much appreciated

Thanks
T

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

I am not sure about Sarasota proper, but Cosmic Games (http://www.cosmicgames.net) is located in Bradenton on 5120 Manatee Avenue West (aka Florida SR64) just a stone's throw north of Sarasota. If you are feeling up for a bit of adventure, you can take I-75 north from Sarasota about 45-60 minutes (depending upon the time of day) and visit HobbyTown USA in Brandon at 2464 West Brandon Boulevard (aka Florida SR60) in the Regency Plaza shopping center. Come on a Wednesday night between 6PM and closing time or on the second Saturday of the month between 10AM and closing time and join the Florida Suncoast Gamers for a game or two. We love new folks and visitors!

I love the Dark Side, and go there every time I go to Sarasota to visit family. Their board game selection is really stellar, lots of hard to find titles. The staff is friendly (and I am an older female, sometimes an issue at some stores, not here).

I would say its one of the best games stores anywhere, not just Florida. They are in a strip mall, so you have to look for the shop when you get to the area. They moved last year down the road a bit.

The Dark Side is a great store!

Is this store still open? I believe their website no longer exists.

EDIT: Never mind, found it.
