I'm traveling to NYC for the holidays and want to buy some board games that aren't easily avialiable over here. Can anyone help me with info about game stores mainly in the Manhattan area? I only know of one called "The Compleat Strategist" but after 2 emails sent I haven't been able to reach them to check for stock availability.

If anyone can help it'd be greatly appreciated.

You have two choices:

1) Compleat Strategist
http://www.thecompleatstrategist.com/
11 East 33rd Street (between Madison and Fifth Avenue)
212-685-3880

2) Neutral Ground
http://www.neutralground.com/
15 West 37th Street
212-633-1288

I would call them with the phone numbers listed above to check on their stock... or your could check my Trade list to see if what you want is on there (I'd sell any of those for a reasonable price).

If you're looking for a game night, I also recommend checking out the New York City Guild at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/175

Use the phone. They are much more likely to deak with your issue.
Biz hours:
M-W FS 10AM-6PM EST
Th 10AM-9PM

Though from here until New Year's they are running holiday hours, so it's 10AM-9PM everyday except Sat.

    Compleat Strategist is exceptionally well stocked. However you will pay full retail plus about 8% sales tax. This may indeed be cheaper than your current prices, but you can do better if you mail order. If you will be in town for a few days you can consider mail order from GameSurplus.com which has remarkably fast service. They generally deliver in two-three days, and will give you the deep-discount prices that us Americans know and love.
