Hi,
I live in Brazil, where it is really difficult to find games and i`ll be in Madrid on holiday for a couple of weeks in September. So I would like to know if there are any good shops over there.
Thanks a lot

You must forgets these two shops, they are very expensive (Puerto Rico: 49€).

You may sees this one that is more economic and they have very much materially (Puerto Rico: 30€) : http://www.ocioingenium.com. Send mail to ask material and prices.

If you need more things asks me.

Regards, from Madrid.

50? ouch. At least I hope that the store owner will dress like like Curro Jimemez, holding a knife in one hand and a blunderbuss in the other. That's highway robbery!

I have to agree with Jose María there, Ingenium prices simply blow away the competition. The most dramatic case I have seen is Bang!, priced 9,6€ in Ingenium against the 17€ of other shops.

However, I wouldn't discard the other Madrid shops so fast. Althought pricey, you can find some gems there you won't find in Ingenium. Don't get me wrong, Ingenium has a wide range of games, but you won't find everything there. For example, I got my copy of Modern Art at Gen-X (check out www.generacionx.es)

Gabriel, you have the whole reason , there are pearls hidden in these shops, and in Ingenium they do not have everything. Naturally it is not necessary to discard them (generacionx or atlantica), but the prices of these shops continue being expensive.

For example Ingenium does not have Mayfair's Catan or Kosmos, and only it will be able to find it in the shops before mentioned but for approximately 45€.

It is better to send a mail and asks for the games. There are shops in the Center (tourist zone) and others like Excalibur and Ingenium are little retreats of the tourist zones.

A greeting.

,

In honor to the truth, the sin of these prices belongs to the distributor, not to the stores.

Excalibur has a new website: www.excalibur.es.

IMHO, the best shop in Madrid.

Hi,

My sister is going to madrid in the next week, I wanted to ask her to bring me some games I found available at 'atlantica juegos'.

Some of those are listed as (traducido) or (castellano) or even (reglas en castellano).

Does that mean the whole game is in spanish? or that they included some extra components in spanish (manual, translations of the cards) and the original components are there too?

Thanks a lot,
Eduardo

AFAK, (castellano) or (traducido) means they include a translation of the manual/cards/tables, usually out of the box. Inside the box the original components are unchanged. When /if there's a spanish edition it's noted by the title, description or the editorial (i.e. Devir, Homoludicus) but are not listed as (castellano).
