Pegheads!

I'm heading to Europe with my girlfriend, Ping, tomorrow for about 10 days, spending a few days each in Barcelona, Paris, and Amsterdam. If any Pegheads live in one of these beautiful cities, and want to get together, please PM me as it would be wonderful to do so!

Cheers,
Joe

I don't live there, but when I was visiting my cousin in Barcelona, there was a cool boardgames/nerd chic area that's worth visiting. Lots of fun stuff to look at. I ended up buying The Mind before it came out in the States. Worth checking out. There's other shops in the Gracia area, but it's the older part of town and the shops aren't as big. It's a great place to hang out, eat, and drink, though.

Have a fun trip!

I found another link when I was looking for more information:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1813745/visiting-barcelona-...

Gigamesh, by the Arc de Triomf in Barcelona (not the Paris one) is the game store to check out in Barcelona.

When I visited Paris, I wasn't really playing board games yet, so hopefully another Francophile peghead can help you out there.

Gigamesh is cool and only a few blocks away from Las Ramblas. You can make a day of checking out some of the cathedrals, bell towers, Roman walls, old markets, new markets, and swing by Gigamesh to cap off the day because they are all in close proximity.

Gigamesh two long rows of board games made up primarily of the BGG hotness. Downside is that the games are mostly in Spanish and unlike other, non-Spanish speaking, European counties they don't come with the English rule books. There are a few other game stores near-by too but they aren't as large.
