As well as Games Centre and Games Workshop, London had a whole load of other role playing games stores through the 1970s and 1980s, on our hunt through the pages of White Dwarf magazine I found a lot of adverts for long gone shops that I’d never heard of. I never visited any of these stores so I don’t have any real insight into them but the adverts are all fun to read, here’s Part 1 of the other London Games Stores:
Gamers In Exile – 283 Pentonville Road, Kings Cross, London
Very close to the beloved Scala Cinema and Kings Cross was also home to The Duke for many years!
Games People Play, 5 Wellington Terrace, Notting Hill Gate, London, W2
Just Games, 63 Brewer Street, London, W1R 3PN
Check back for London Games Stores Part 2 tomorrow!
