My family and I are going on vacation in Paris and Normandy in April. I would like to find a store that carries games not typically found in North America. Any recommendations?

I've been to Jeux Descartes, 52 Rue des Ecoles, Paris - 01 44 07 35 01 and they're a well-stocked shop. Lots of RPG stuff. However their photo on Google Street View makes the shop look closed. Might be worth a phone call first.

That one doesn't seem to be closed as they'll be holding several games demonstrations on march 20th (according to http://www.jeux-descartes.fr/) though it will be closed on the 31st.

Then there's Ludikbazar (address is 6 rue Meissonier paris 17).

Unfortunately I can't promise you'll find anything not available in the US ... usually it's quite the opposite (french players eager to have a chance at grabbing what you get )

It's good to know they are still going.

Yeah, Jeux Descartes is still open and it has the advantage of being a stone's throw to Notre-Dame and the Quartier Latin, right across the street from La Sorbonne university, a touristry neighbourhood. You can bring the spouse and family in front of the shop "by pure luck"

I'm afraid too that they won't have much games not available in the US, but maybe a couple...
