The reason they all come down to The Compleat Strategist is because that's pretty much the only game store in NYC. The rent in NYC for storefronts is astronomical, and with the margin on games being razor thin, it's very difficult for niche/hobby stores to survive.

Having said that, here's a link to a store in Williamsburg. I've never been there, but I've read about it.

Enjoy your visit!

depending on where you are in brooklyn, it's sometimes easier and faster to get to manhattan than it is to get to another part of brooklyn.

here's another store in brooklyn:
http://www.kingsgames.com/

i haven't been to either brooklyn store, but i'm pretty sure both brooklyn stores will have nowhere near the selection of compleat strategist.

I have been to 20 sided many times and know people who frequently go to Kings. Neither has the selection of games that the Strat does, but the Strat feels like a time machine. Games are piled to the ceiling and there is a sense of the grognard that permeates all in the way that game shops of the 80s did as a standard. The smaller shops are smaller, but they are a touch more proactive and younger in crowd as a result.
