So I'm going to be taking a trip to London later this summer, and I think it'd be really cool to check out a good game store and maybe find some interesting games that aren't as popular in/haven't made it to the states. I'll be spending most my time on the West End, though I'll be spending some time in the east side (mostly around Stratford City and Greenwich). Something in the vicinity of those areas would be great, but if not, it's not a deal breaker. I'll certainly make time to travel to a place that comes highly recommended, even if it is a little out of the way. So, anyone have suggestions for game stores to visit? Suggestions for other gaming-related experiences or general "must-do" experiences for while I'm over there are welcome as well ;)
You might try Orc's Nest.
oops, double posted
Forbidden Planet has a megastore on Shaftsbury Ave, very close to Orc's Nest. They don't have anywhere near the board game range that Orc's Next does, but they have lots of other geeky things too.
Took a look at their websites, and they both seem to have great stuff. And they're in a great location, too. Looking forward to checking them both out!
