I think that the internet, google, and this site have pretty much removed the possibility of discovering new games. That said, I will be in France for three weeks, and was wondering if there are any French games that are fun/good/cool that haven't taken off yet in English-speaking countries, but that may have rules translations here. Thank you.

You may try Taggle and Taggle d'amour or Troquons (this one is not in BGG database) if you speak french.

I don't know of any other game only available in France but I'm sure there are. Maybe you should try to contact some french publishers ?

Also:
- Minivilles (machi koro) (freshly released here) that has not been released in english yet I think.
- the beautiful re-edition of Rome & Carthage that is multi-lingual, but maybe not so easy to find outside Europe

Where in France will you be? I don't know if you remember, but I traded you Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear in a math trade last year (if I remember right, I left it on a porch in Sandy--I hope you got it ). I was living in SLC at the time, but have since moved to Annecy. If you're going to be in this area at all, let me know and we can meet up for some food and/or games. I can also show you the game stores in town if you'd like.

Hi!

We will be in paris until the 27th, then Edinburgh and Amsterdam, followed by Nice and Lyon. It looks like there is a shop in paris by Notre dame.

At Lyon, you can go to the club "Moi je m'en fou, je triche" with is maybe one of the most known. It has a very good reputation. Here is the website with opened days : http://www.debitdejeux.fr/agenda/

We ended up going to Trollune, in Lyon, and it was a very good store with a number of games I hadn't seen before. I only ended up buying a copy of the latest version of Savage Worlds (an RPG) which is only ten USD, but we are enjoying it.
