Hi all!

I'm a non-German speaking tourist with a very modest budget visiting Berlin and while I'm sure there are a gazillion recommendations for Berlin gaming shops already, I was hoping you could point me in the direction of the more affordable ones...

Thank you in advance!

I think they all offer boardgames at the same prices, so that is not really an issue.

If you want to go to a store where you can also play games with an international group of gamers, I highly recommend the Spielwiese gaming cafe (also the local hangout for Berlin designers and publishers!).

It's in the heart of Berlin's best cafe district near many of the sites (especially the East Side Gallery, the part of the Berlin Wall that remains and has been covered with painting)

You can play any of the 1000+ games on the shelves there, enjoy a beer or cappuccino and meet gamers from all over the world, some who live here and many tourists like you.

And you can buy the games there too, of course. But sometimes it's nice to try before you buy!

If I was in Berlin, I'd be happy to meet you there. Enjoy your time in my favourite city!

You can write an email to Michael at the Spielwiese if you are looking for something specific. He has ordered stuff ahead of time before for people.
