I'll be in Utrecht next week for a few days and was wondering if there are any game stores. Thanks

Hey Dave,

Utrecht has a lot of FLGS;

on 'oude gracht' there are 4!!!
Joker
NeverNeverLand (nr 202)
Subcultures (canal-level)
Labyrinth

It takes 5 minutes to visit them walking, so check em out and find what you're looking for ;)


And a short trip to Amersfoort can bring you to 'Spellenwinckel' (great shop and service)

Have fun!

For your 'nexus ops' and/or 'die macher' I will be your personal tourguide ;)

Phreakyhamster!

You weren't kidding. Joker, NeverNeverLand, and Subcultures are literally within 20 feet of each other. I managed to pick up a copy of Giganten at NNL. I was really looking for some of the Essen releases but they didn't have them.
I never did find Labyrinth.

Nice!

Labyrinth is right across the street of 'Joker', other side of the moat/canal/river ;)
They're actually into roleplay/warhammer stuff, but got some boardgames.
I spotted some Essen releases @ Spellenwinckel in Amersfoort!

Grtz,

Too snowy to drive to Amersfoort, so I'm headed to oude gracht!

Edit: Very nice shops! I picked up Tulipmania and Dog. Was looking for Schmidt Spiele "Easy Play" series games, but they did not have any....

The proprietor of the Joker said that he was inspired to open his store by a trip to the U.S. during which he say many game stores (back in the Avalon Hill days).
