New York, New York

I'm not long back from a few days in Gotham with my mother and daughter.  I didn't get to do much in the way of gaming related activity but I did manage a few minutes here....

I remember seeing The Compleat Strategist mentioned as a vendor of gaming material in a number of products I owned in the 1980s - probably Runequest and perhaps some FGU products.  My copy of the Sixth Fleet rule book is on my desk and I note that they were based only a block or so away.  It's good to know there's still a game shop going from that era and amazing that they can survive given NYC rents.

I didn't buy anything as I only had a few minutes browsing time before the shop closed for the evening.  Prices seemed to be roughly comparable with what I see in the UK.  $14.75 for small X-Wing ships for example.

It's always good to see an independent retailer surviving in these days of Amazon and eBay.
