UK Games Shop Directory

By on 7 April 2008

Gunhex has posted information about a new resource that is the perfect compliment to the UK Role Players shop guide. In his own words…

Having seen plenty of “Is there a game shop in X” threads around here I thought this website might be of use to a number of you.

I’ve just finished the first run of information gathering, so you’ll find every entry has address details (and usually phone numbers). I’m going to focus on opening hours and a photo of some kind next.

Basically this is a compilation of every physical game store of some kind in the UK. Places you can actually go in and browse/buy. Hopefully it’ll be handy!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
