Hi, I'm gonna be headed down south to Manchester in a week or two and I was wondering if there were any good games shops in the city?

Or if there's anywhere that sells games cheap, I'm not picky.

Cheers!

Hello, you might want to try The Gaming Crypt in Altrincham which is close by. Dave who runs the store started out as a Magic card trader but has since expanded into a full games store.

The Gaming Crypt
14 Lloyd Street
Altrincham
Cheshire
WA14 2DE

Hope that helps,

Steve

Both Fan Boy 3 and Travelling Man are in the centre of town and are only 5 minutes from each other.

Fanboy 3 is the place to go... They have a decent selection of boardgames, and Dave, who runs the shop, is very friendly... they do specialise a bit more in CCGs and CMGs though.. so the shop is often full of sweaty teenagers!
Travelling Man is just round the corner, so worth a look if you are in the vicinity.. I haven't been (to either) in a while, and I had heard that TM were selling off all of their boardgames... but that may just have been rumour.
Both stores are about 10 minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly station.

Another vote for Fanboy, IMO it is the best FLGS in the UK and no I am not an investor before you ask.

The Gaming crypt and Travelling Man are also decent games shops. When you consider that five years ago there were no games shops in Manchester we are living in a time of plenty.
