I'll be in Newcastle for a few days this month and would like to check out any friendly local game shops. Failing that, any department stores or whatever that have a good range of board games.

Please can anyone recommend any?

Thanks in advance

Travelling Man and Forbidden Planet on Grainger Street (between the railway station and Grey's column) both have a small to decent selection of games.

Have you checked the UK FAQ? [geekurl=http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/UK_FAQ#toc0][/geekurl]

It lists: Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Travelling Man
43 Grainger Street, NE1 5JE
0191 2614993

Forbidden Planet
59 Grainger Street, NE1 5JE
0191 2619173

But may be outdated.
Cheers
David

Only for the UK. It is a great resource and always worth pointing people at it.

Thanks for asking the question I'm up that way next month and I wouldn't have thought to check myself until you asked...

Cheers
David

Travelling Man is the better of the two and has a good selection of newish Euros. Forbidden Planet used to be good, but had really let their stock slip last time I was in a couple of weeks ago. They had big name miniature games, but hardly any Euros.
