Apologies if this has been posted previously and I missed it.

One of central London's few bricks and mortar game sellers is having (actually has largely had) a stock clearance sale. They are in discussion over their lease and it is very up in the air as to whether they will close, relocate or get a last minute repreive at their current site near the British Museum.

They are selling a large part of their inventory at 50 and 70% off - although most of the choice pickings are gone.

If they do close that will only leave 'Orcs Nest' or a trip out to Finchley for Leisure Games.

That's a shame. They generally had a good stock, and was very convenient for a quick visit on the odd occasions I was in central London. I guess the poor economy did for them.

Actually, I don't think they're going bust or anything like that - just an issue with the landlord - and a hiatus while they decide whether to relocate or ...... I base this on a 5 min chat with the person who served me today as I made off with some sale items.

A shame if they do close, I try to call in whenever I'm in London. Mind you, without a web site they're going to struggle in a very competitive market.

Neil - That is quite a long phone conversation, either that or you can write really fast.

Presumably the ones with no discount against them are still at full price.

Thanks for the info.

Went to London on Wednesday and popped inside there, didn't know that all that was 50-70% off. I saw that the Arcane Legions stuff was, but wasn't sure about everything else.

Shame if it goes, nice little store. The stock wasn't that good really imo, especially compared to Orc's Nest which ironically is more aimed at RPG stuff, but still seemed to have more board game stuff than Playingames.

Thanks for the info, Gordon.

It will be a shame to lose Playin' Games.

This is the shop I bought my first euro from, that led me on the road to a lack of storage and a great hobby to spend my free time and money on.

Er... is the price given, the price before discount? So £10 -50% is actually £5, or does it mean it was £20 and is now £10?

If you deduct 50 or 70% from the price quoted, you will get the price they are selling at - so yes £10 -50% means selling for £5.

I was kindly sent an email with the list, so it was a cut and paste job and yeah where no discount is mentioned the item is at full price.

Wow those are some great prices, Its a shame that they have to close this soon. By the way how are they surviving in this climate without a website? Dude it's the gaming industry, you need some form of website, the internet is where all the games are being played.

I was in on Wednesday. They told me that they're shutting on Sunday. They're looking for new premises.

There's very little left downstairs now.
