My partner is off to Germany at the weekend and is willing to get me some games if I can find a fairly central game store in Cologne.

The best games shop in Cologne is the Spielbrett. It is not very big but has a huge selection of games and the staff is alway very helpful and friendly. You can have a closer look at the store here: http://www.spielbrett-koeln.de/main.html. To find the store have a look at "Anfahrt" or use the following map: http://www.stadtplan.net/index.asp?direct=SRL160376115272160... and type in "Engelbertstrasse" in the search tool.

It is not too far off from the center of the city and you can easily reach it by car or better by public transport.

It is called "Feldhaus" (situated in the "Schildergasse" next to "Sport Scheck" and directly across "Kaufhof" I believe). They have some good sales but they don't nearly have as many games as the "Spielbrett".

Thanks for the tip on spielbrett! The store is still small but awesome. It has a very nice selection, and the owner was very friendly (and spoke excellent English!) They even had a nicely alphabetized used game section (aka TREASURE TROVE!) with great prices in the basement.

Too late for the TS, but there's also Brave New World. I have not been there myself, but my in-laws went there to pick up a game for me and they told me the owner was very friendly and forthcoming.
