When I saw how small Gary's Games was, I was worried their selection would be small, but I was proven wrong. I came in just last night, so they were temporarily out of several games I asked about (due to it being just two weeks after Christmas), but the fact that they carry them at all is pretty cool. They seem to have a great selection of imported games and games from lesser-known publishers.
I'll admit this is the first store I've been to that was dedicated to board games, but it was just what I was looking for. I was impressed by the fact that they had a lot of card games and that they had a whole case of pawns, counters, die, and other game accessories. They have a whole wall of games by Cheap Ass Games, in which access to these game pieces is important. They also had a book and figurine section and a whole wing of the store dedicated to jigsaw puzzles and model airplanes.
This is definitely a gamer's game store. (They even had a small group of people in the thick of a role-playing game when I was in the store.)
Their classic games section was a little bit spare, but it seemed like they were kind of low on everything as a result of it being just two weeks after Christmas. Prices seemed standard. I left the store after spending about $50 on several new games and game pieces (pawns, Monopoly money, etc) and was very pleased with my purchases.
