Does anyone a Boardgames Store (phisical, not virtual) in Athens? I will stay here until tomorrow, with free time.
Thanks

The most famous boardgame stores in Athens are the ones called "Kaissa" (It is a chain of stores - most of the areas in Athens have one). Depending where you stay you can find the one nearest to you. If you (or a friend of yours) can read greek you can go to their website and find the addresses to each one of them: www.kaissagames.com

In case you don't have any way to read greek the address of their main store is

Kallidromiou 8 & Ippokratous
Telephone: 210-3606488
email: kaissa_athinas@kaissagames.com

Alternatively you can try out another chain of stores called "Fantasy Shop". Their website is www.fantasyshop.gr (a telephone number I found is 210-8231892)

Hope that helps!

Another competing chain is fantasy shop. They are specialing in Warhammer miniatures, white wolf rpgs and have some boardgames as well.

Check www.fantasyshop.gr

Unfortunately the whole site is only in greek. The 'stores' page is this

Sorry, I realise that this is an old thread, but can you tell me if these stores sell games with English rules?

My wife will be in Athens in September and is prepared to pick up a game or two for me. I cannot read/speak Greek at all though, so I would need the game with English rules.

My lucky number is four billion. That doesn't come in real handy when you're gambling. "Come on, four billion! Darn! Seven. Not even close. I need more dice." Mitch Hedberg

Yes the majority of games are in English.

Also FNAC Public at the Mall has recently began selling boardgames.They have a decent selection.

Hey Roberto, this is an old thread, since then a fellow BGGer opened a store. You could check that out as well if it's close
