Independent, non-Amazon online sources for board games?
March 8, 2017 12:58 PM   Subscribe

I'm going to be buying some new board games and RPG stuff in the coming months, and would like to support an independent, pref. worker-owned shop in doing it. We have a good one here in DC, but it's on the other side of town from me and I'm rarely able to get over there - what are some good online options? Bonus points for any that are MeFite-affiliated!

coolstuffinc is my go-to.

Can't speak to ownership, etc., though.

Ha, I was going to suggest Labyrinth, but I'm guessing that's the one in DC that's too far for you. Wizard's Chest in Denver is great, though their online shopping experience looks a little cobbled together.

BoardGameGeek Store and Funagain are great options.

I second BoardGameGeek. It's a good resource for finding games to play, too.

Disclosure: a friend's game design studio. I am in no way connected with this enterprise. More important than the fact that he's a friend and colleague, he is wicked smart and designs some cool games: Digital Capricorn Studios.

Funnybone Toys is owned by the loveliest lady.

DriveThruRPG is mostly centered around pen-and-paper RPGs more than board games, but they have a lot of stuff available.
