Whether you're a board gamer, video gamer, Dungeons and Dragons nerd or just someone who wants a new Monopoly set, you're sure to find something you want in this guide to Chicago's best game stores.
If you play Warhammer, D&D or anything else that requires miniatures, paint or terrain, this is the place for you.
The best comic shop in Chicago. Not only is it the prettiest, but it has the best selection of independent/zines I've ever seen. Plus toys and games.
Evanston's premier comic and gaming store. Mostly comics, but with a smattering of your favorite geeky card games and more.
It's worth the drive down to the far south side to visit this densely packed comic treasure trove.
This place is huge, and they also boast a comic art gallery that elevates the tone above your standard comix shop.
I love this store. If you're into vintage video games (from Atari to Nintendo to Famicon) this is the store for you. Don't count on finding much for your XBOX360, but they have thousands of great old games.
Hands down, the best game store in Chicago. We're not talking monopoly - this is for pretty serious gamers. But you're guaranteed to find something you want to play. You can try out any game in the store in their huge playroom next door.
Hyde Park's best (only?) comic book store - a great place to spend a few hours browsing.
If you're not quite as hardcore a gamer, this might be the perfect start for you. They've got all the interesting games, but the owners are super friendly. Plus, yo-yo contests!
Super nice and incredibly well stocked - just make sure they aren't booked for a tournament if you're going in to play.
An inclusive, comfortable gaming store where even the non nerd is welcome.
