The Works seems to have stocked up on bargain basement Rio Grande games again! I'm curious if anyone has played any of these? I've not even heard of any of them! Looking through the list I'm tempted by Asteroyds and Sylla...

I'd be interested to know if they have any copies of Vasco da Gama in the store (sold out online). Also, generally, if they have anything interesting in-store that's not on the website (not expecting you to cross reference them though!)

Thanks for looking! Will be interesting to see if they get more titles in (in the store or online) over the next few weeks...

The Works at Crystal peaks had much the same (as you would expect) no sign off Asteroyds or Priests of Ra though. They had a game called Havana which looked interesting, I picked up Mousquetaires du Roy.

From THE MOOR Works this morning I got PRIESTS OF RA, PALAZZO and BONNY & CLYDE.... They had a load of others - but they'd sold out of TAJ MAHAL already - which I was interested in (Its about 150 in the top games on Boardgamegeek) - The lady in the shop said she didn't think they were getting any more of this batch of games in now.... If anyone picks up an extra copy of TAJ MAHAL from Meadowhell or Crystal Peaks - I'll have it!!

Evan, I swung by Crystal Peaks on the way home this afternoon and managed to pick up a copy of Taj Mahal. It's yours if you still want it...

Thanks for looking! I'll just have to content myself with the ridiculous piles of games I've bought recently... (Ooops)

Managed to pick up Warriors & Traders and Mousquetaires du Roy from Rotherham, they also had a few copies of La Citta left which is a brilliant city building game.

I bought Mousquetaires du Roy a while back. It looks quite good, unlike every other hand I've bought on a whim. Ever.
