My mother's going to shopping trip to Bremen, so i'm going to tell her to buy me some games which would be hard to get through internet and that could be found just in local stores.

Problem is that i don't know any shops there.

So could you please tell me some boardgame shops in Bremen ?

Please give precise addresses, if able. And shop homepage links also would be nice.

How does those lists help me ? It's almost impossible to find any specific addresses there, using Google seems more hopeful then.

The answer is in the links that BaSL suggested, but I think the address is out of date. Anyway, in Bremen you have only really Die Spielerei, at Vor dem Steintor 98-100, 28203 Bremen (it has moved up the road since the post referred to by BaSL). It's more of a toy shop, but does have games at the back, and Friedemann Friese can sometimes be seen there selling games.

However, the Karstadt on Obernstrasse (Obernstrasse 5-33, 28195 Bremen) probably has a larger selection, although many of the games there will be more mainstream.

These all stock more Euro-type games (though Die Spielerei does have some AT). It's a pity she's not going to Hamburg, as Spieland , has more stuff which I think you'd be into (at least judging by the games you already own).

I can't believe the most important FLGS in Bremen is still missing:

LIMBUS SPIELE

Homepage: http://www.limbus-spiele.de/
Shop: http://www.limbusshop.de/index.php


Been around for many, many years, friendly owners, who know much about games, especially RPG. Recommended!coolmeeple

So you tell me only after I've left... I lived in Bremen for about five years and never knew about it. I suppose it's my own fault for barely ever leaving Viertel.

this was the link Bas was pointing you to:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/70480

Anyways, a tip from me:

Always, and I mean, ALWAYS, check out the Galeria Kaufhof for their cheap Queen games.

20 euro for Dominion, I see here (wish I could buy it, but don't want a German version)

I'm now in Regensburg, so it's a bit of a long journey to visit a gamestore...

There's this FLGS (whether it's "F" I don't actually know, as I've never been in it).

This internet shop has a warehouse you can visit in Regensburg.

You should also look at normal department stores such as Gallerie Kaufhof in the centre; moreover, there's a Toys R Us here, which has a few games: I was once in there and saw Chicago Express for only 20€.

Naaah, I'd rather go to Limbus Spiele.
I know this is most likely the once-in-a-million exception, but that one time I ordered from 12spiel.de, I had to wait close to 3 months on stuff that was readily available everywhere else - and in the end they even told me they couldn't get the things I wanted and canceled the order.

No, it is in Bremen.
Links to their web presence are already provided in one of the above posts.

Yeah, support your local FLGS, that's right.

Besides, Limbus has been around for many, many years, they oners are very friendly, they can order anything which they don't have in stock, and have decent prices.cool

Limbus opened up around the time I moved away from Bremen - must have been '96 or so.

Guess not... they were there in 1993 and before, since I was there then the first time...

12spiele.de seems like a pure online shop.


The problem with Limbus Spiele is that it is too far from the center to be a shop I would visit often or at all. While I was in school (long ago...) I was there regularly but now it is quite impossible. I would need over half an hour to get to the main station from work. From there another half an hour to get to the shop. Making a total of two hours (without shopping time) after work to get to a shop which sells stuff I can also get online. So I could only go there on a Thursday due to their irregular opening times. Nah, too many restrictions.

The shop opened 13 April 1993.

I think at some point we got our wires crossed on this thread as someone then asked about shops in Regensburg. It is in Regensburg. And though it is mainly an online shop, I do believe that it is possible to visit its warehouse in Regensburg.
