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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
