This store use to be in SouthRidge Mall, but their new location has a much larger showroom. Board Game Barrister has a huge collection of newer board games, card games as well as puzzles, role playing games, some small plastic figures, etc. They also have a gaming area that's open to the public every day and they ever have over 100 board games available to play in the store. The prices are a little high, but no worse than any other hobby store in the area. I wish they had more tabletop (book & dice) role-playing games and more older/used/out-of-print board games such as Avalon Hill games. But all in all, this store complements Milwaukee's hobby/gaming store ecosystem well by filling in some gaps in merchandise that other stores don't carry, but not carrying the same items as other similar stores. Definitely worth a trip!!!
I am new to the Milwaukee area and have been an avid collector for almost 20 years. I am not used to a comic shop being so well lit and clean while having a big selection. The staff was extremely friendly and was helpful in helping me start a "pull box" They were also the only store in the area that had the Lord of the Rings card game I was looking for. Glad to have such a great new store to go to.
Great game store! Friendly staff is more than willing to help you find games on their floor and even went so far as to find me a specific set of Chessex dice I wanted. Add that to a huge selection of board games and RPGs, and probably the hugest (is that a word) selection of dice I've ever seen makes Game Universe my first stop for games in south Milwaukee!
