Hi,

Other than Fanboy3 on Newton St, are there any good places to get board games in Manchester (preferably in the central city area)? Any recommendations? Addresses & some street directions would be great.

Thanks,
C.

I think that there is a store called Travelling Man just around the corner from Fanboy3.(Exit Fanboy 3 take a left,left in the first street and the shop is 200 yards on the left).It is more of a comic store but does have a selection of games as well.

Simon,
Thanks for the tip on Travelling Man. I've bookmarked their online address (www.travellingman.com).

BaSL,
Wow, the meta-geeklist you are compiling looks impressive. Though, as you may know, this is the first thread on Manchester, UK.

Mmmmm... I don't know why, but I thought there were some threads in there dealing with UK as a whole. There are no such threads in there.... Sorry. Deleted.

I'm not too surprised to hear that. I'm not often in Manchester these days, but every time I've been in there over the last few years they seem to have been trying to get rid of their board games with an permanent 3 for 2 offer. Took advantage of that several times!

Fanboy 3 had an impressively comprehensive selection last time I was in.
