Hi there, I'm relatively new here (lengthy lurking has transpired) and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good place to buy board games in London for a trip I'm making next month.

Any help would be appreciated!

O.

I think they all cover the same 2-3 shops, though, which seems to be all there are

I did a tour of many of the London ones in July and found Leisure Games to be the only one that I would recommend for board games.

http://www.leisuregames.com/

They have a wide selection and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Most of the others I went into were one or more of "small", "disorganized", "poorly stocked", "hard to reach by public transport" or "clueless about board games".
