I know of 2 boardgame stores in New York City, "The Compleat Strategist" and "Neutral Ground". I thought I was happy with those stores until a recent visit to Boston where I found a store near Harvard that had a most excellent stock, it made the store in NYC looks pretty skimpy in comparison

Anyone know of any other stores in the city?
thanks
Sébastien

There used to be a small boardgame store on 6th ave in the village. Not sure of the name offhand, but try looking it up in the phonebook or on the net.

Forbidden planet has nearly nothing, mainly Catan.

Honestly, you'll get better deals online, at someplace like fairplaygames.com.

It was callled The Game Show. There were two stores and they both closed this year.

The place kind of sucked anyway.

Nope nothing outside of that in NYC. Strange, eh?

You may also try this question on nerdnyc.com forum . I bet they may be able to answer your question. I frequent that forum often. It's fun getting the gotham gaming perspective sometimes.

There's a gaming store way out on King's Highway in Brooklyn.

I've never been there though.

Yup, morgan, that was it. Game show.
Right, it wasn't great. But then again, I don't like compleat strategist, which is a shame because their VA store is the only nearly convenient game store around here (now that I've moved from nyc).
