Hi,

Does anyone know of any games stores in Barrie? I know of www.sirgamesalot.com, but does anyone know what they stock? Specifically, I am looking for Yinsh, Dvonn, Ingenious, Rumis or the like.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you find anything, let me know. This is a store in Hamilton that was mentioned last week on another forum thread. I think it was called Bayshore Hobbies.

I have been into Sir Gamesalot a few times, and find that they have an excellent selection. ALL the newer games, plus some oldies that are still sitting on thier shelves (i.e. Material World, Empire of the Ancient World). About a month or so ago, I picked up a copy of Goa; out of stock everywhere else, but sitting right there in Sir Gamesalot. I find their prices are competitive to very good, and the store is clean and well organized, with all the games in alphabetical order.

In Hamilton, Bayshore Hobbies has two stores, one on the mountain, one down on King St. They have recently redistributed their stock so that while they both have Euro games, only the King St. store has heavier Wargames. Again, their prices are very good, and in the past year I have found two copies of Big City, and one of La Citta. Be forewarned: they are closed Mondays.

Hope this helps.

I'd like to know also, so I've bookmarked this. I'll be going to see family up in Bracebridge soon, probably in August.

I was just in Barrie this afternoon.

In the Georgian Mall there was a store called Uniquely Games. They had quite a selection of various puzzles, kid's games, chess, playing cards, etc... Tucked in there was a good 8-foot wall of Euro games, but none of the ones you mentioned. Power Grid ($65), Empires of the Ancient World (around $72, I think), Bohnanza ($26), Bohnanza expansion ($13), were the ones I handled, though I didn't buy anything...

I use http://www.germangames.com/ alot. They are online only but even with shipping I find the prices are great. The service has always been excellent.

No problem. I don't know if it's new or not as I'd never been there before; but, that mall is undergoing some serious expansion and renovation.

I happen to know the owner of the store. Nice guy. Loves to play Turfmaster.

His name is Vince - ask him to show you his stromtrooper suit

WRT GIPF games, if he does not have them in stock, I happen to know his distributors do so he can get them pretty easily

Just for the record, this Vince is not that Vince, but it is funny that a Vince unwittingly introduced a Vince's store in this conversation!
