I’ve started a new project in over at thenerdlist.wordpress.com
Basically, it is an extension of a habit I already have; obsessively looking up all the nerdy, sftnal, or weird stuff in any city I plan visit even briefly. Coupled with John’s encyclopaedic knowledge of board game shop locations it seemed a bit of a waste to do this research and not share it.
So far, the format is loosely; a) actual nerdy places like comic book stores, b) bookstores, and c) nerd-adjacent things like HMV or science museums. The idea being that if you are in an unfamiliar city, say a day early for a convention or needing an afternoon off from visiting relatives, this is the sort of list that might help find something to do.
I will add places sporadically and recommendations are welcome. For now it’s a UK only project to keep it manageable.
