Saddly none as I know. If you wanna buy games use Taobao, dude.

Edit:Noticed that you are not a Chinese. FYI Taobao is an online mall for all kind of stuffs including boardgames of coz, search for stores like 一刻馆, 天X天 or 棋乐无穷, they are all online boardgame stores in Taobao, or you could just search for the very game you like to buy.

Here's the link: www.taobaoenglish.com
Here's another link if you reads Chinese: www.taobao.com

Cross over to HK. Small game store in Kowloon that carries major title games. Limited selection (I had more games in China than they have) but you'll probably see something you like. My Chinese friends LOVED Clue, which you can buy (in Chinese) at a Chinese Walmart, along with Risk and Monopoly if you're that desperate.

I didn't think to check taobao, as I had assumed there would be no wargames. I can read and write CHN without any trouble. Do they generally translate the game names or should I be searching in for correct titles?

Didn't have time to cross over as I was just in town for 3 days on business. Maybe next time though. I know there is a wargaming group there that operates a decent webstore.

Um, taobao has everything.

Many/most games get translated titles if there's a local production. Many games can be found which are simply imported (more expensive, obviously). In any case, the English name will almost always also work, whether or not there is also a localized name.
