The Forbidden Planet

So last night I decided to go forth and find a copy of Dawn of the Jihad. I'm in Manhattan, so I figured somewhere must have it. It was slightly discouraging that Classic Battletech didn't list any distributors in NYC, but I plugged up "games stores" on the handy-dandy Intar-Web-O-Matic, and found a shop at Union Square called Forbidden Planet that seemed to be quite sizable. I took off across the city after work to check that place out. Alas, the store was overly focused on Comic Books, which although nifty, wasn't what I was out for. For any of my friends, though, who are into comic books, I'm in the city the rest of the week and I know how to get back there, so let me know if you need any particular piece of comic book merchandise -- they seem to have quite a selection, going back a rather long ways.

Oh, and for fans of L33t D00d, the Fourth Coming has arrived.

welcome to NYC - home of ten billion comic book stores and no game stores. It's sad - I've looked, but they're few and far beteeen. I'm still looking. Sadly, the best I've found is the gaming section of the local B&N superstore...

I know that the Magic Premeire events in NYC are done by Neutral Ground. That's about all I know about games in NYC, though.

I visited a Neutral Ground in San Francisco. The place was just one big rectangular room. All along one side was a sales counter with a hefty staff of sales clerks. All merchandise was behind the counter. The rest of the room consisted of endless rows of tournament tables. I did an Odyssey block draft and somehow managed to grab two psychatogs.
