there’s a really great shop in auckland (or rather two branches of the same shop) where you can go in and try all sorts of fantastic puzzles and games before you buy them.  it’s a bit like a games workshop type place where you can sit for hours and fiddle about without being hassled by the man.

except you will get ‘hassled’ by this man who is the owner and will do everything in his power to encourage you in your quest to expand your brain (in a non pressuring way)


it really is a rare treat and well worth a visit to either of the branches in Orewa or Devonport
