Orcs Nest, London…This is the best place to go to get board games in London

An incredibly tiny store with an undeniably superb and rich range of board game stock and role playing books. Although deceptively small, it’s compact, with each shelf inside jammed with a vast variety of board games. This place has a ton of stuff.  The walls are bursting with games. It’s unmatched in this regard in London.

In terms of atmosphere, it has none of the buzz of other London game stores like Forbidden Planet. It’s pretty close to a tube station so just a few minutes walk.

The guy who worked there was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.He was very approachable when I asked for some recommendations.Believe me, it was difficult to decide what to buy, there was so much on offer here. He asked what games I already played and liked, then made some great suggestions. If I had the luggage space, trust me, I would have bought more than the just one.

Bottomline is: fantastic store, excellent selection, but will burn through your wallet! This is the true truth as I say it as it is…




  1. Location?

  2. There is a pub called Selkirk in Tooting if you are ever in the area that does board games on a moonday night and its some great fun 🙂

    I also wrote something about my pet peeves of commuting in London. Check it out at and let me know what you think!
