I'll be working in San Diego for most of the next month. Can anyone recommend a good game store in the area?

I was there visiting a couple of weeks ago.
I found two – but can't help you with the names.
The one with a lot of action/tables etc.
You can find it if you go to the reaper page and look up retailers.
That is how I found it.

Thanks, Gents. Just got back from At Ease Games – highly recommended!

Brookhurst Hobbies isn't too far from San Diego -- closer to Disneyland, to give you a point of reference.

You must go to Brookhurst. Years ago when my daughter was young we made the trip to Disneyland. I planned a quick side trip to Brookhurst. In the one week we were there I ended up going 3 times.

It is on the San Diego side of L.A. so it's not that much of a trip. Make it a Sunday drive up the freeway and then take the coast road back to San Diego.

There are three other major game stores. Going from South to North: Game Towne, down in Old Town; Game Empire, at Clairmont Mesa and the 805; and Pair-a-Dice, which is just off of the 78.

Game Towne is nice. It's conveniently in Old Town (where my children love to go), so we drop in there whenever we're in town.
