Going to be there for a week on vacation, and while I'm not looking to get any games in, it might be nice to do a bit of shopping. Are there any good gaming/minis gaming stores near-ish to Oak Island, Wilmington, or just Brunswick county in general?

Thanks in advance for any info.

I will second the recommendation for Cape Fear Games.

When I lived in Wilmington, the store was there... there was plenty of tables for gaming... usually folks there that would do a pick-up game... and the staff was always friendly and helpful. (If I had a geek friend visiting, I could take 'em over there and find people to round out a multi-player game.)

Also: they discounted everything they sold. I don't know if they make enough money to stay in business, but their prices were competitive with online stores.

Nice place!

They have since revised their price points, but are still very reasonable when compared to the regular retail outlets. Most purchases can be made for what it would cost you on line plus shipping. The best thing is you don't have to wait! You walk out of the store with game in hand.

CFG has a lot of in stock happiness. Tons of board games, mini gaming equipment and accessories and of course a boat load of CCG stuff with MTG being their bread and butter.

The business seems to be keeping their head above water. They will have been in business for three years come this November.

Just a follow-up to say thanks again for pointing me towards Cape Fear Games. I actually only managed to go by there on the way back home, but it was worth the detour. Very nice store, and friendly and helpful staff. Got a box of Eldar Ulthwe/Storm Guardians for way less than GW list price! Now I just have to figure out something to do with them....

Thanks for stopping by! I believe you bought a WM book also right? If so I was the one who rang you up. Hope you had a good time in Wilmington and if you're in town again make sure to stop by again.

Sorry, that wasn't me - I was looking at some Warmachine stuff but left with just the Storm Guardians and a copy of Illuminati: Y2K. Next time I need to head by your store on the way down to the beach instead of on the way back home - my souvenir fund was sadly depleted by then.

Still, you have a very nice store, and the lady running the register (sorry, I cannot think of her name) was very helpful, looking up a few items for me before I checked out. I'll certainly be back next time I'm in the Wilmington area!
