Hi everyone,
I will be in Wales for my holyday this August.
Any suggestions about shops (mainly in Cardiff & Swansea) in which buy games?
I am deep interested in historical games from any brand ( GMT, COA, AH, Compass, Decision and so on).
Thanks in advance......

https://rulesofplay.co.uk/ in Cardiff city centre has a decent selection of games and is probably a better option for historical games but is very expensive these days (or atleast the last time I went there).

http://www.firestormgames.co.uk/ is just south of Cardiff Central train station and is much cheaper but tends to concentrate on miniatures and an inexplicable number of Monopoly variants.

You can walk between the 2 shops easily enough as they are both fairly central.

There's the Gamers' Emporium in Swansea, and up there in the middle of Wales, a nice selection of games in the Arts Centre Bookshop at Aberystwyth University.

I'm local to Swansea and Gamer's emporium is good but not for the games you seem to be after. In fact from what I have seen rules of play in Cardiff seems to be the only one that stocks these heavier games.
