I'm making a one day shopping trip to NYC on Dec. 9 and was hoping for some recommendation for game shops. I will be mainly around Macy's and Rockefeller Center.

Thanks a lot for any recommendations!

Tim

The Compleat Strategist on 33rd St just east of 5th Avenue. Lots of cool stuff.

I dunno if I'd make much of an effort to go to NG, the actually shop part isn't particularly big or inviting. I think there are much better stores to go browse around in, though if it's really close and you have time it's not like it's a bad shop or anything.

They do have lots of events always going down though, so if you are in the market for some play time, definitely check into whats going on.

    Compleat Strat has a vastly better stock. NG is worth a trip if you can be there for gaming. Both sell at full retail +8%, so you might do more browsing than buying.

Note that NG did move into a much nicer space a couple months ago. Still true that their space is more about playing than displaying, but it is much improved.
