I think I figured out what OLGS means... on-line game store, right?
But it's been forever now and I still for the life of me can't figure out what FLGS stands for.

But I have narrowed it down to one of the following... can you help me solve this mystery?

Poll
FLGS stands for (choose one)
Fully Liscensed Game Store
Formally Liscensed Game Store
Front Location Game Store
Front Layout Game Store
Front Line Game Store
Family/Local Game Store
Freaks and Losers Gathering Station

It's a shortening of "fulgs", which is plural of fulg, which is a small creature like a stoat.

A goat shepherd is a goatherd. I suppose you could have Five Lazy Goats Shepherding or Five Lazy Goatherd Sheep. Ooooh, I love being a pedant.

It originally meant "full line game store", or a store that carries entire lines and not just a partial catalog.

On BGG it is generally meant as "friendly local game store", contrasted with fogs (friendly online game store), or with lgs (local game store, with omission of friendly if they are not so), or nsflgs (not so friendly local game store).
