Been in the Tropics for 10 years now, but will do a 'before' and 'after' in case anyone is close to my old place when I go back for a visit.....Before
Small place called Tiptree in Essex, near Colchester and Chelmsford..... postcode CO5.
Parents and sisters still live in the area so I pop back every once in a while.
Didn't really visit any games stores there except the occasional trip to the Colchester GW and Lingards Games and Puzzles (more a puzzle and boardgame shop). Mostly played at the group's houses, drinking their beer, sleeping on their floor, annoying their parents etc etc. Now
A bloody hot and humid place where the locals completely refuse to follow any form of rules when driving or riding their scooters....... Malaysia. Just outside of Kuala Lumpur, near Petaling Jaya....... postcode 47000.
Plenty of Game Shops and Cafes here now. Took a while to emerge, but definitely a growing hobby. Main places for gaming: Wolfs Game Shop, Mage Cafe, Games Circle, The Outpost, and Boardgamecafe. All withing 30 mins drive.
Visitors are more than welcome to gizza buzz if they come here for Holiday.
