The Whitcoulls on Lambton Quay started stocking a smallish amount of them in the first half of the year - not sure exactly when, but by April I think. My understanding is that Whitcoulls have a new games buyer who likes/knows about euro style games. However, they've always had a fairly limited selection. But still, better than nothing I suppose.

Most other Whitcoulls I've visted still only have the usual rubbish unfortunately.

Toyworld in Wellington also carries euro style games now, and has a better selection than Whitcoulls. This has happened since The Playground closed down. Toyworld is often having 20% off sales.

However, so far no shop I've seen is anywhere near as good as the Playground was.

Also Wargames - which recently opened in the BNZ arcade, underground. It's close to LV Martin, but such a hidden away spot can't be healthy.
