The title pretty much sums it up, but... Does anyone here know of any puzzle shops in the Longbeach area? I am going to be going there for about a week. Hopefully I can find some good twisty puzzles there.

Thanks!

I'd assume so. I live in the area, but haven't heard of or seen any puzzle shops.

Yea it's been a while since I've actually been in any major shopping areas of the actual city of Long Beach. There might be something along the Long Beach Promenade, but honestly a yellow pages search will tell you more than I ever could.

I live in malibu and the only place I've seen anywhere near here is the puzzle zoo on 3rd street in santa monica. It's got ice cube, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, icon, UFO, 3x3 keychain, gordians knot... nothing unusual but more than just the 3x3.

sk8taboyee: I actually live in OC, and I don't know of anywhere there either. I work near Long Beach. To be fair, the only puzzle shop I've ever seen was in Spokane, WA.

I've never seen one except toys r us, walmart, target etc. There should be more because lately I was looking for 4x4s at walmart and target and they didnt have it at 4 different places and different cities and they only ever have 3x3s, if that and I want to try a rubiks 5x5 cause I've never even seen one, or a ufo

Try Borders or Barnes and Noble. I've seen both 5x5's and UFO's there.
