I will be visiting Munich over the next couple of weeks with work. Can you recommend any games stores? Do any of them open in the evenings, as I'll be working during the day time.

Thanks

There have been some threads on this topic previously: See this threads for recommendations:

There may of course be further options, stores might have been closed, etc. Nothing that I am aware of though.

I guess most shops' opening hours end somewhere around 20:00 pm, this is not Berlin.

What kind of games are you looking for?
Sdj/easier mainstream: Toy shops such as "Müller"/department stores "Kaufhof" or "Karstadt"

CCGs/LCGs/etc.: http://funtainment-muenchen.de/index.php?option=com_content&...

Heavy euros: ?? (Any really good recommendations anyone?)

Wargames: ?? (Not my genre.)

The Galleria Kaufhof stores tend to have quite a few Queen Games, (along with the occasional big box Carc) at pretty good prices, by UK standards at least.


It has been 4 years since I was last in Munich and only vaguely remember a board game store that was "somewhere off to the left from the main train station" on a fairly quiet side road, where I managed to pick up a complete set of Advanced Heroquest minis (still on sprues!) for my dad.

So, my reply wasn't massively useful, but in other news, you can feed the goats at the Munich zoo...

Was it in a kind of "oriental" district? ("Landwehrstraße")
Did they have many CCGs/LCGs...?

From your description it could be this store: http://funtainment-muenchen.de/index.php?option=com_content&...

Funtainment (Landwehrstraße 12) is a nice small shop specializing mostly in miniature games. They have a selection of board games as well, but these are the currently popular ones. Definitely worth a visit.

Then there's Games-In (Dachauer Straße 42), a real trasure island for gamers. Board games, RPGs and lots of it. Even old and rare ones. The shopkeeper is a nice guy but also a bit peculiar. Not everything in this shop seems to be for sale - maybe you'll find a rare gem in the stacks in the rear part of the store or the shelves extending up to the ceiling - only to be told "oh no, that's not for sale"

Games In has closed its doors.

The Galeria is always worth a visit, there usually are a couple of games to be had at a nice price. I bought Fresco and the first expansion for 20 € (though that was in the Aachen branch), but I remember seeing Colonia in Munich for 15 €. You just have to get lucky .

The Obletter toystore at Karlsplatz also has a good selection, but there seems to be less chance for a real bargain there.
