I will be in Washington and I wonder where I would be able to buy some boardgames while I am there.
Does anyone know some shops in the capital city?

I don't know of any shops in DC itself, but there are several in Maryland and Virginia. My favorite is The Game Parlor in Chantilly, Virginia. It has a large selection of just about every kind of board game, war game, RPG game, dice and collectible card/miniature game. They also carry an excellent selection of miniatures rules, Sci/Fi and fantasy miniatures, paints terrain and accessories.

They have quite a number of gaming tables to play at and a good number of gamers there every night who are willing to talk about games (and play them too).

The Game Parlor (locations in Chantilly and Woodbridge, VA) has the best selections by far.

The Compleat Strat in Fall's Church is small, but okay for wargames.

Dream Wizards in Rockville is basically a Warhammer/RPG shop.

Child's Play on Connecticut Ave. has Euros.

Game Parlor is certainly your best bet. Here's their website.

http://www.gameparlor.com/

The site has directions, but it also has photos of the interiors of both stores.

Unfortunately, neither is close to a METRO station. If you're going to have a car, it's no problem.

Also, if you are flying into Dulles Airport, you are very close to the Game Parlor in Chantilly, and could easily make a visit to or from the airport from DC.

I will reiterate the call-out for the Game Parlor. Great place, great selection, great people.
