Might be helpful to other travellers.

Accidently found a reasonable selection of boardgames available in Dubai during a recent trip. There may be other shops but the one I found was "Book World" Level 2 in Dubai Mall. Pretty awesome bookshop in its own right, but in the middle of the shop was a display of a good selection of boardgames (estimate somewhere between 50-100 different games). Pretty current stuff e.g. Rex, London, Thunderstone advance, and not a monopoly board in sight.

Prices roughly around UK RRP (although was doing the calc's in my head) might have been slighly less in some cases.

From their website, Back to Games seems like a decent store whereas Geeky Lizard seems more like a meetup.

The 'Communities' section on www.boargame.space (a distributor in Middle East) is a good place to find groups to play with including RPG, board games, and war games.

Hope this helps.
