FLGS of the World - A List of Game Store Advice on BGG

This is a list of game stores in the USA - found on BGG. BGG is a great place to ask advice on where the good stores can be found. Of all the posts I've read so far, there are just a few that couldn't be answered.

In this post I've tried to arrange the threads on gamestores by state. I don't want to link to gamestore websites, because you can find those yourself. Furthermore: these links give you advice from fellow BGG'ers; where to go and what to avoid.

If you spot any mistakes, please tell.

Please remember: BGG'ers like to link. So a lot of threads will link to other threads. Clicking around the links in this post will probably get you some of the same threads. And some threads don't have that much info or it may be outdated. Sorry about that. Please tell if additional info should be added.

The names in brackets are just an indication; most of the times people are asking for or getting info on stores [b]in that region[/b].
