    I think you can still get these stuffs from Serene Center located at the junction of Adam Road (near Bukit Timah). Leisurecraft was fated to close after a series of bad moves, business was bad with sky high rental too. Ouch ...

    Miss those nostalgic pen and paper RPG days indeed

    Actually there is still a shop located at the old lesure craft, just renamed to Paradigm Ifinitium.

    The Shop at PS is located at the 3rd story which only sells games workshop stuff like warhammer.

    Hmmm. maybe we can even start at thread on the names of those who play diffent board games.

    That shop at plaza singapura is Games Workshop. Yep, they have a branch here now. Prices of miniatures are on par with the likes of Comics Mart.

    Does anyone here play miniature games like 40K?

    Leisurecraft. Yup, rang the bell pretty loudly too... Spent hours creating adventures as a D&D DM. Spent hours playing adventures as a AD&D player. Years later, spend hours constructing decks for MTG... There's even a MTG League in Singapore!
    Now..... hmm.... have them somewhere in the cupboards....

    ..NuTs..
