Fun for the whole family
During my lunch hour travels today I wandered down to the nearly-world-famous games store in Gastown. My father really likes those “impossible” puzzles that have a million and a half pieces, repeating patterns and no borders, and I figured that that would be a good place to pick another one up.
The games store, for those who have never been, is an experience in itself. I’m always amazed at all the weird and wonderful ways people have devised to amuse themselves. The variety in there is overwhelming: puzzles, board games, model sets, tin soldiers, cards and outdoor games of various incarnations and vintages. Some are old favourites and others, like the one pictured right, well, aren’t.
At any rate, while talking to the staff there, I learned that the games store will be closing some time in November. I asked if they would be moving to a different location, but no one was entirely sure.
So if you’ve secretly been coveting that limited edition Canada-, Cat-, Dog- or Kiss-opoly, I’d suggest you go out and get it quick.
