I'm going to be crossing the pond to visit the US this September.

I know there are plenty of things that I can buy for cheaper over there but I'm really interested to know if there is much that I might be able to find in a game store that would be very difficult to buy in the UK.

Any suggestions of things to look into?

All suggestions welcome; though I'm not really into wargames or miniature games.

Rather than try to find it in a game store I'd suggest shopping online in advance and have it shipped to the hotel or wherever you'll be staying. You'll get better selection and better prices.

Yep that's what I do. I've had several packages sent to a relative's house in Orlando for our trip in October.. and even with the awful USD/AUD exchange rate, I'm saving an average of 40% compared to the best Australian prices I can get. It's an absolute no-brainer.

Hi
If any games that eagle / Griffin games does takes your fancy, things like defenders of the realm etc. Definitely take advantage of their low USA shipping costs.as their intl shipping is ludicrous.

I totally just thought of something - Spot it! Holidays is impossible to find in UK/EU.

Or if you do find it let me know

Funemployed is a game with really good reviews that seem more or less impossible to find in Europe.

Red 7 is quite easy to find here. Paperback is a good shout, saves the enormous shipping cost.

Shouldn't you designate your status as a designer and/or otherwise make clear these are your games you're recommending?
