Q: Where can I buy board games in Beijing?

Yea, I'm a nerd. Anyways...

I know Beijing has a bunch of board game bars/cafes, but I would prefer to own them so I can play home. Preferably in English. Don't care if they are real or "copies". Are there any good board game stores in the city?

鼓楼东大街 (Gu lou east road) does. Look around in the small shops and you'll find some.

I got a chess board with some really detailed pieces. It was very cheap on the street. There is a famous market which is located in Beijing. It's not in any of the silk markets those places are too expensive. I'm not exactly sure what the market is called but I think it is the traditional market or something like that. They have the market set up like a flea market and it's really fun!

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
