Lots of games packed into a small store 1/6/2006

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. more

A strong recommendation from a friend 1/5/2006

I have a friend who loves non-traditional board games, and he says this place is great. He has been playing all sorts of games his entire life, so I find his opinion in this area is usually spot on. Good luck! more

Games, Puzzles and Models 8/20/2005

This unexciting store carries tons of games, a decent supply of puzzles and models and a few fantasy books. I have run in here when I needed to buy a last minute game for a gift. Selection is pretty good, but the bulk is in the realm of fantasy. It is worth a quick stop in if you are wandering the shops of Greenwood. more

Great 8/4/2005

Good selection and friendly staff are the main reason to visit Gary's Games. In the store, you are free to browse without being continuously bothered by the staff (who are more than happy to help if you ask). Prices are reasonable and service is great. Why would you not go here? more
