    Just stopped by "Puzzles" which is a shop in Lewes, Delaware, along the shore. It's a short drive north of Rehoboth Beach. Not a game shop, but exceptionally well stocked both with jigsaw puzzles, brain-teaser puzzles and kids games like Treasure Quest and Rush Hour that are not generally considered acceptable for the database here.

    Given the broad array of choices and complete dearth of board game options in the region I felt it was worth mentioning. I blew close to $200 on my family on a fine array of puzzles, trivia cards and brain-teasers. It's a very nice haul of items you won't generally see at your local store. Worth a visit if you have a bit of time.

All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.

Thanks, Sag. My parents live there and I'll be visiting in a few weeks. Is it in one of the outlet malls?

    The shopping district in "downtown" Lewes. It's advertised on those promotional maps that you get at pizza places in the area.

Yep. They used to have tons of Ravensburger puzzles. First time I had seen anything besides their games.

    The ferry is a nice trip as well.
