Anyone familiar with Madison WI
« on: February 17, 2014, 06:32:28 PM »
I currently live in Tampa, Fl but have applied for a position up in Madison WI and was wondering if anyone is familiar with the area and knows of any good game stores up there?

I'm Board is an excellent game store in Middleton, which is not far from Madison. From downtown Madison you just drive down University. They have a board game night every Thursday that I try to go to when I can. I play Mage Wars there about every other Wednesday.

There is also a Pegasus Games on the west side of Madison, and a Netherworld Games downtown. The people at Netherworld Games seemed more focused on MtG from what I saw, but that might have just been when I was there. They certainly have board games in the store.

There is a board game club at UW-Madison, but you don't need to be a member of the university to attend.

There are also many people in the area that play board games, and have people over to play.

There is a fair amount of gaming in the area overall, and my recommendation is to go to I'm Board.

Thanks for the information, I have 2 game stores within 30 minutes of where I live now and would hate to move some place that did not have a good gaming scene.
