I occasionally use Cerebral Hobbies. They have some eurogamers there; I picked up a bunch of Carcassonne and settlers. Here's their address:
265 S. Elliot Road
Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill is right outside of Durham, so it's not a big trip.

A list of game stores in the Raleigh/Durham area can be found at http://www.tuga.us/ I haven't been to any of them except for Cerebral Hobbies though.

Good luck!
Nathan

Not much here; 2 comic/CCG stores with a couple of selections of the new AH/Hasbro games. The larger store has a decent selection of Mechwarrior and GW minis. I know they do have some game nights for the minis. Comics, Games and Books is the new name. They used to be The Augusta Book Exchange.

There is also a Hobbytown USA near the smaller C/G/B that actually has more boardgames than the above 2. Other than that...zilch. I usually drive to Columbia, SC (an hour away) to buy games from a brick and mortor store. There are two decent stores and an active gaming group there.

I live in Raleigh, NC. All Fun & Games in Cary has a great selection of Euro games, RPGs, and some Games Workshop stuff. Games Galore in Cary is similar. Fallen Orc games in Cary is primarily miniatures, with a smaller game selection. Lost Goblin Games in Raleigh has a small selection of games and a larger selection of warmachine miniatures and D&D. Hobby Masters has a small selection of board games but a large selection of Games Workshop miniatures, as well as other miniatures and RPGs (I think they have the best selection ofr GW and other miniatures).

For gaming, we once had a large group that met at Games Galore in Raleigh. Unfortunately, that store closed and the group fragmented. The good news is that there are boardgame nights with the fragmented groups at 3 stores. On Wednesday night, there is a game night at Lost Goblin in Raleigh. On Thursday night there is a boardgame night at both All Fun & Games and Games Galore in Cary (I recommend All Fun & Games for the Thursday night one. I usually attend the Wednesday night games at Lost Goblin.).

You can get all the addresses from the TUGA.US (TUGA = Triangle Unplugged Gaming Association).

Just updating this post for the FLGS list:

Cerebral Hobbies has been out of business for awhile now, sadly.
