Computer and Games Shops
  • Leisure games on Ballards Lane. You can even get spare Monopoly moneythere!
  • Brainsache is a great computergame shop and i am a good friend of the owner (harry) i think that you have been bastards by saying that he is thick. i want that comment you have posted on the page to be changed as i think its a proper insult. i even work there from time to time and i think harry's a lovely guy, and in no way is he stupid. so please get your facts right first and change it. you dont know him, so why write that stuff? change it!
  • Adam's world on north finchley- many second hand games to be found and loads of old PC's and a P.C upgrade room in the back. E-Play (formerly Microplay) in finchley central has 8 internet P.C's you can use for the usual extortionate rate. Recently rebuilt facade and insides are nice, clean and new. Brainsache- more of a videogames booth than shop, it has recently been forced to relocate across the road due to the Prior's shopping center in north finchley (next to argos) closing down. Good if you can talk the owner (harry) into a bargain - not difficult as he is quite thick.
  • Dungeons and Dragons your cup of tea? Then come to Finchley and hang out at the Dungeons and Dragons is just my cup of tea, thank you" shop, next to FAB record. Or wander 10mins up the street to the new computer games chamber of horrors and weep as seven shades of shit are beated out of you on the multiplayer computer game of your choice by the four year old behind the counter.
