What makes this store awesome?
James Sterrett says

Friendly staff, great geeky atmosphere

Gator’s Games and Hobby has Eurogames as their main product inventory, and also carries family boardgames, minis wargames, fantasy/sci-fi minis, minis accessories, CCGs, RPGs, and some stray general-purpose geek merchandise. And on the shelves, it’s all new games, except for some used cards at the counter.

For in-store gaming, you’ve got a wide variety of different game tables, including a few separated rooms (see photo gallery).
