Over on the Northwest side in the Georgetown shopping area is Top Shelf Games. They have more war gaming stuff than eurogames, but they have expanded alot recently and have a fairly good selection. On Coliseum West is a game store called Atomic Games that just opened up a month or so ago. It is on the north side of the Coliseum beside a King Gyros. They are also a war game shop with a mid size selection of eurogames...

I would highly recommend More Than Games on Dupont. Excellent store with great employees and tons of game selection. They do not cater to wargamers much, just great games. They are also very active in the community which is a giant plus in my book.

Update:
1. Top Shelf now carries a good amount of Euros as well as war games. And in this case, war games means of the miniature variety (Warhammer, Flames of War, etc.).

2. Atomic Games is no longer open at that location. They have another location, but it's for serving their Internet customers and, as far as I know, has no retail or playing space.

3. More than Games is closed.

Anyone know which stores in Ft. Wayne handle miniatures? Mainly looking to see if people are playing Warmachine or Infinity in the shops.

Don't know about any Infinity action, but Game Annex, Deck Factory, Books, Comics, & Things, and Nerdvana have Warhammer stuff going on.

3Con 2014 should have some news coming out shortly! You haven't missed the chance to sign up to run things.

Another thread has some more info on game shops around the area.

3Con 4 is coming up May 2015, after figuring out a better venue situation. http://3congames.com/

As mentioned, Nerdvana closed recently, and The Game Annex is open (and has been for over a year now). https://www.facebook.com/thegameannexfw It's a great place for diverse gaming, with expanded play space, a large board and card game demo library, and support for multiple miniature lines as well as Pokemon, X-Wing, Dice Masters, and much more.
