I will go to Hokkaido soon. I have found Yellow Submarine in Sapporo already, will go to have a look. I also will go to Hakodate too. So if you know any good shop in Sapporo or Hakodate, please recommend to me. My target card games will be:
Trick of the Rails
Will not buy all but will try to get 2 or 3 among them, hehe.
Now who are these five?
Come, come, all children who love fairy tales.
Just to prepare you, finding Trick of the Rails, String Savanna, Sukimono or or R (Brave Rats) might prove quite difficult.
It's possible, of course, if you find a speciality store, that one of them bought these games specifically from the publisher and still has a copy around. But as you know, none of those were in any distribution chain.
Blanc Noir was, though, so you might find that one. It's a bit old, though. I don't know about Shogi Goita or Yabu no naka.
I've been to Sapporo, but wasn't searching for board games much. I don't know more than Yellow Submarine. Can't find anything else.
Seems to be a small flea market for board games the 3rd of August if you're there then:
Thanks for your detail reply first.
So bad that I will leave Japan before Aug, cannot join the Sapporo Game Market.
Hope I can find card games in Yellow Submarine, will take some photos if it has any attractive games for us.
