I'm going to Malta next week. Has anyone any experience with finding board games there? We will be staying in Sliema, just NW of Valetta, but we'll probably go to a number of different sites.

If anyone knows of a better place to move this post to, please let me know. Sadly, Malta doesn't have its own BGG forum.

There are five users with Malta flags and avatars; you might just want to ask one directly:

I know Richard Ham is on pretty frequently.

Did someone call my name?

Hi Holger. There's 3 places I know of that you can check:

Forbidden Power
http://www.forbiddenpower.com/
This is a standard CCG/Warhammer store with a small handful of boardgames. The most amazing thing about it was the first time I went in and was checking their shelves, I was shocked to find an in-shrink copy of Star Wars Queens Gambit, at the original price! Bought it on the spot, of course

Malta Comics
http://www.maltacomics-and-more.com/
This is a comic book store that also has a small selection of games. I haven't been in there for almost a year now, so I don't know what the current sitch is.

RC World
http://www.maltacovered.com/place/rc-world/
This is a toy store that has recently (within the last 3 months or so) started carrying boardgames, and they've got a SUPRISINGLY good selection. Definitely worth checking out while you're here. The owner is hoping that he can start to develop a boardgame community on the island, and I wish him the best!

I was in RC world in Naxxar not so long ago and they had the best selection of board games I have seen on the island.

Hope you enjoy your time in Malta

Amazing, I was looking for game shops in Malta and ended up here

Good to know I can scratch that itch while on vacation.

Here to revive a dead thread:
I'll be going to Malta today for honeymoon and was wondering if the above mentioned stores are still open (and relevant) and if any new ones should be added to the list.
I'll be staying in Sliema, so anything in Valletta or Sliema would be greatly appreciated

i'm over on gozo now so it's been a few years since i've been to any of those shops, so i'm probably not best suited to ask...

Are there any game groups that meet up to play there at all?
