As you might expect from the title, this is an article about games. Or rather, a store that sells games.
Milsims arguably has not only the best selection of board games in the Melbourne area, but also the best prices. A game of Telestrations, for instance, will put you down $45 at Mind Games Melbourne, but only $34 at Milsims.
While you can simply peruse their online store, I highly recommend popping in to the brick and mortar location in Bentleigh. When going into Milsims, a game lover will at once feel at home surrounded by the games stacked high on every shelf. However, Milsims is not just for hard-core board gamers, there are light games that even novices will love, and these are often situated towards the front end of the store.
Why should you take the effort to go the store instead of just browsing and ordering online?
One reason is that the friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you find whatever it is that you are looking for - whether you already know the name of the game, or just have a genre or age-group in mind. This is a great plus when you are just entering into the gaming world.
Another reason is that while the prices are still unbeatable online, online you have to pay for shipping to your place of residence - or pick up the game for free at their store.
My advice is - if you already know what game you are looking for, put a hold on it online and go to pick it up in store. If you do not know what game you are looking for, then go into the store first thing, and be prepared to be amazed by just how many games exist.
