Some of the games we play can be hard to find in stores, although it's getting easier. You first port of call should be Boardgameguru, an online store run by Paul Lister, a LoB member and long-time sponsor/supporter. If you'd prefer to visit a "bricks-and-mortar" stores, game supplier Esdevium hosts a website FindYourGameStore with a map of game shops.

Some London stores include:

  • Leisure Games The largest physical board and card game shop in London, located in Finchley, with a large stock on the floor and even more at the warehouse. Has online ordering.
  • Orc's Nest A small shop, but possibly the best in central London. A large amount of miniatures and roleplaying gear. There's a decent selection board games - the staff are not very knowledgeable about these, but its good for new releases.
  • EXP Leisure Magic Madhouse is primarily an online CCG store but they have set up a space in Stratford that sells boardgames and hosts events. You can also rent games there.
  • Village Games Puzzles and boardgames in Camden.
  • Compendia Traditional games in Greenwich Market.
  • Heroes and Legends New store in Surbiton, open 7 days. Seems to be mainly miniatures and wargaming.
  • The London Chess centre Has a small selection of puzzle and Eurogames.
