Having a conference in Cold Spring Harbour Lab next week, I was wondering whether anyone could guide me to a good game shop (primarily for wargames) in either Cold Spring Harbour or in central Manhattan?
Cheers,
Ras

Long Island is a board game wasteland. There are no 'good' game shops. The only 'decent' place I know of is Men at Arms in Middle Island.

Otherwise, you can look up The Compleat Strategist in NYC.

Sorry, to dash your hopes, but it is what it is.

Just make sure you get there on your lunch break. They close at 6 most days.

The Complete Strategist is open late on Thursdays till nine o'clock. It is closed on Sundays. Lots of games in their store but don't expect bargain prices.

Don't expect great service either. I went there with my girlfriend and had two employees insist that Werewolf the party game was actually Werewolf the RPG. I gave them two manufacturers and various titles and eventually searched the store and showed them in their inventory where the game I sought was. Plus it smelled like poo in there. When you've got a odor that trumps gamer funk, you've got an ODOR.

Dang, all the other threads say the prices are really high. I had high hopes, visiting NYC in a few months.

I'll probably still drop by, just to drool.

Will you be in town on the first or third Thursday of the month? You should stop by Neutral Ground (37th St between 5th and 6th Ave) for the meetup.

I think that's the day of the Yankees game we're going to.

What time is the meeting?
