All three Jeux Descartes stores are stocked well, although I prefer the stores on the Rue des Écoles and the Rue Meissonier (http://www.jeux-descartes.fr/). To my dutch un-wargame-like eyes, they also have an impressive collection of wargames. The downside: games in France are not cheap. Caveat emptor.

Oh, and shameless plug for my geeklist: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi....

Enjoy your stay in Paris!
