I just want to give a quick shout out to Games Plus in Mount Prospect, IL, for being the quintessential friendly local game store (FLGS) and my closet gaming location outside of home. The staff are knowledgeable and patient, the stock is vast, the game room is huge, and I always have fun there. Twice a year they have an auction so you can recycle some of your own stuff locally. Through EN World, Buzz organizes a gameday three times a year that we all started ten years ago (our 30th gameday comes up this Fall!). I currently run a couple of RPG camapigns and am in a Hordes of the Things miniatures campaign there which I will continue to blog about in coming weeks. There are some other stores in the region and some are quite good but hands down Games Plus is tops in the area, probably one of the top ten or even top five stores in the country.
