Game Stores We Visited in Germany
- Mark Goadrich(ensor)United States
Like Norbert666 (http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=99...), I was lucky enough to recently take a vacation this year to Germany, the first week in Bonn for a work-related conference, and the next week and a half travelling the countryside with my wife Laura. Our trip took us through Cologne, Koblenz, Triberg, Munich, Fussen, Rothenburg o d Tauber and finally Frankfurt to fly home, and we found time to visit a few game stores along with our castling, hiking and museuming (and trying to stay out of the rain).Recommend
We owe a big thank-you to the 'geek, as I had scoured the forums for lists of what games to get while there, as well as have now printed out the rules translations so we can actually play all these games. Also I hope it helps some other geeks looking for suggestions on where to shop in some of the cities we visited. Some of the stores I found was through the help of Days of Wonder's Germany Store Locator (http://www.daysofwonder.com/index.php?t=store&rid=&S=79519b5...).
We decided to pick up games we couldn't easily get here in Wisconsin, and found most everything we were looking for. We spent about 200 Euros total for 17 games, due to some great deals, and managed to bring them all home using packing tips from Jeph Stahl's Essen Backpacker article (http://www.gamefest.com/news/feature_detail/2575_0_3_0_C/). We can't wait for our next trip, hope this list is helpful if you're planning a similar trip.
