I'm going to UK, more to the point, I'll be around the Central London area, and I'm looking forward to find stores and players in this areas. Can someone point me a couple of shops, and aybe a boardgaming group around this that may happen to meetup during my stay, from the 8th to the 12th December?

Thanks

For shops in Central London I think it comes down to...

Playin' Games
33 Museum Street, London , WC1A 1LH

and

Orc's Nest
6 Earlham Street
London
WC2H9RY
www.orcsnest.com

Nipping out on a family visit to London earlier in the year I didn't make it to Playin' Games before they closed but Orc's Nest had a pretty good range of boardgames upstairs - I always think of it as an RPG store but there was plenty to turn the head of a provincial lad whose nearest FLGS has just closed down.

Leisure Games are in Finchley that's close but not central.

Can't help you with groups I'm afraid.

Andy

Regarding groups, I'm always happy to suggest Swiggers - see http://www.pevans.co.uk/Swiggers/ - but if you're not here for a Wednesday, then that's no use to you.

What might be more relevant is that there's usually a day of games on the second Saturday of each month at The Duke of York, 35 New Cavendish Street, London W1. You can find some contact details at http://www.londongamelist.info/

Thank you Angy and John,

I've put those shops on my tour through London, and I'm checking the London game list. unfortunely I will not be there on a Wednesday.

Thanks,

Let me just say any board game geek, from where ever, is welcome to drop by. :o) You should have all the details, so I'll be seeing you on the Sunday.
