I assume in a city as large as Athens there is gaming. I am going to be there from 7/16 -7/26.

So I was wondering:

Are there any conventions going on?
Are there any gaming stores that would have a good stock of Eurogames that would be hard to get in the US?
Are there any gaming stores that have an open board game night that have gamers who speak English? (my Greek is very rusty)

I will be in the Ana-illioupoli (sorry for buthering that) section of Athens?

Just wondering.
Henry

My lucky number is four billion. That doesn't come in real handy when you're gambling. "Come on, four billion! Darn! Seven. Not even close. I need more dice." Mitch Hedberg

I believe that everything is harder to find here than in the US. Most stores carry small stock and order only enough new games for the regulars. Some games from European publishers, though, such as Dixit are more easily available.

Plus there are many Greek translations that make the english versions obsolete, which probably don't interest you.

Without wanting to advertise a particular store, you can check the games a typical store holds here:
