I always buy my in-laws a new board game for Christmas. This year I wanted to buy them Power Grid. Unfortunately, my local game shop was sold out and informed me that as their supplier was also sold out, they could not get another copy until mid January. Being the bull-headed, stubborn SOB that I am, I decided to go on a mission. I broke rank and searched all the comic, toy and game shops in London, ON to no avail. As my in-laws live in Sudbury, ON and I would soon be making the long trek north, I decided to call all of the game shops I knew of along the way to inquire about Power Grid. I quickly realized that I didn't know of many good game shops in Ontario and every one that I did know was sold out as well. My mission failed.

I am attaching a list of what I think are the two best game shops in London, Sudbury and Barrie as well as the best game shop I know of in Toronto. I implore all Ontario residents to please attach the address and telephone number of what they believe are the best two game shops in their community so that next year I am not forced to buy my in-laws another themed Monopoly game...just kidding I didn't resort to a themed Monopoly game.

Very close to The Hairy Tarantula mentioned in the previous post; it's worth checking out both.
Note that there are cats at Hairy Tarantula, which is good if you like cats, but bad if you're allergic.
