5 stores to buy board games

Written by Christine

Board games are something that is a part of everyone’s childhood but they aren’t just for kids anymore! Board games are a hobby that is becoming quite trendy today, especially games that are aimed at adults and teens. Included in this trend are role-playing games, which are games in which each player takes on an assigned role or character. There are many versions of these games, ranging from adventure to fantasy to live-action roles. Here in Barcelona, we have some great stores that carry these novelty board games in addition to all of the classics.
