Hi All,

Have a mate visiting Manhattan next month, so are there any good game shops he can visit for me?

Thanks
Rob

Paul's not far wrong. Only dedicated game store left is The Compleat Strategist. It's fine, but the prices are nothing special.

If your mate is a gamer, have him stop by the NYC Boardgame Meetup while he's here: http://boardgames.meetup.com/23/

Depends on what exactly you want him to look for. Something that's cheaper than online, then see Paul's response above. Something that may be hard to find in a store tightly packed with all sorts of games and odds and ends (but generally at list retail price), then you have a chance.

We're pretty much down to just the Compleat Strategist here now, and unless it'd be cheaper to pick something up for retail plus the NY tax, it won't be worth it for anything but the experience of looking around inside.

That's not true. You get to pay either list price or list plus 10% before paying the 9% or so sales tax. Thats pretty special.
