Hi,

I'm travelling to Kunming later this month on a study abroad course and just wondered if there are:
a) any board game stores in Kunming (of the hobby variety, not just Monopoly etc).
b) are there any good online stores in China

I am after games that are either in English or are not language dependent (since most of my friends know zero Chinese). I know that it is a weird thing to ask about, I'm not travelling there for games but thought I'd ask since I live in NZ where some games aren't available or can be more expensive.

Thank you in advance

I can't speak to flgs, but there is an abundance of online stores that you'll need Chinese language to navigate.

You'll need a local friend/ helper to help you order, but search www.taobao.com and you'll find hundreds of games. Just make sure, when you buy, that you get games that are in stock now, and not preorder.
