Gaming Goat?
Could we have more info, please? Is MN being invaded by Illini here?

The website at thegaminggoat.com leaves much to be desired...all I did see was the Woodbury location via FacePlant gulp

Not sure about the Gaming Goat, but Lodestone Coffee and Games opened back in November, near Hopkins Crossroad and Cedar Lake road in Minnetonka.

Lodestone website

The store has a small but decent selection of games (Scythe+expansion seems to be something popular?), and a small but decent game library. There's 8-10 tables that can hold 8 people each, and it's a nice, laid back place. The owners and employees are happy to join in on games if it's not too busy.

They sell games at ~10-15% below MSRP, and can order in games from their distributor if they don't have it in stock (and can get them).

Yay west-ish side?

It must be that mapping service. If you click on the "view larger map" link from their inexplicable map, it takes you to google maps ... which I assume is the correct location.

Fry emailed me yesterday, stating the Maps function has been updated.

I even saw this thread earlier this week... somehow I didn't make the connection and drove to the old location today with my son to play Pokémon. The new location is much better (not next to an "adult" store). The place was really busy and people were great. My son played 3 games (1 with me, 2 with another kid) and got a paper deck box, 2 league promo cards and a Sun and Moon booster for playing. Also the guy behind the counter gave my sun a really nice rare foil EX card too! We'll be back for sure!

Air Traffic at the Mall of America is the only one left. The stores in Burnsville, Eden Prairie, and Roseville all closed. The one in Maple Grove was renamed and reopened as Grey Duck Games and Toys.

Looks like Hobbytown USA in Oakdale has closed or moved. Drove by the other day and didn't see anything in the storefront anymore.

Unfortunately it has been closed for awhile. I didn't think to post any here.

Well, it's not open yet. I don't think they've even got all the stuff out of the old Johnson Lampshades store yet.

The store looks great. I"m just down the road and can't wait to check it out.

Have been very impressed with the Gaming Goat as well. Been in there several times and have bought several games already. And obviously it must be doing okay, because when I first started going in there the tables were empty for the most part, and now when I go in, all of them have been busy.

(So, Magic still makes the world turn? I can't believe 20+ years after I first played it when it first came out that it's still going so strong. Was just watching a boardgame documentary on Youtube and some were saying how it's because of Magic: The Gathering that many of these game stores have been able to stay afloat.)
