This is a list of game stores around the world - found on BGG. BGG is a great place to ask advice on where the good stores can be found. Of all the posts I've read so far, there are just a few that couldn't be answered.

Has created a google "My Maps" map that is public to the world.
Loads of people have helped to populate it with game stores - can you add any?

Enter a game (or shopping cart of games) and find out which game store has them in stock and the price.

It could be cool to do an analysis of the poll results to produce a league table of the best online game stores.

I thought it was such a good idea that I produced a Europe version.

Spotted that my Europe version hardly scraped the surface of Germany, so he did a detailed Germany-only one

Jeez, Aldie, that's alot of zombie games.

You can directly link to games with a URL like this:

http://www.spielboy.com/GeekPrices.php?gameID=9216 (Goa -- watch it rise!)

Yes, you need to get the gameID from the Geek first.

Quote:
I recently needed to evaluate what my boardgame collection/library was worth, so I created a web application to do it for me.

In addition, I have always wanted to know what the "sweet" spot is for certain games that I own so I added that using the "best" rating from the user polls.

Since I have a young player also, I needed to sort off of "user recommended" age instead of the manufacturers suggested age.

Let me know what you think and any ideas you may have for the app. Hope this helps others the way it helped me.
