It seems I'm going to be in Ottawa from 26-29 June for a conference. If there are any puzzlers in the neighbourhood, or any puzzle shops you know of, I'd like to meet up/go shopping.

I'm not sure of the schedule yet, and I know I'm not free during the days at all. My boss, 6 other colleagues, and I are presenting on a panel so I can't really sneak out with that many co-workers there (or should I say that few-I'll get caught!)

Let me know please.

None that I'm aware of (stores, that is). Too bad you're not nearer to Toronto; there are a couple out that way.

Hee hee hee, this trip just gets better and better. It now looks like we have a 24 hour layover in Vancouver. I will be there on the night of the 29th and leaving late afternoon on the 30th. Same question applies. Puzzlers who might be up for dinner with myself and a colleague and puzzle shop locations would be welcome.

Hi Roxanne,

I live in Toronto and have yet to find cube stores. Now I do know of some stores that sell cubes. One is Mind Games. Aside from your standard Rubik's cubes, I have seen some Mefferts cubes such as Professor Pyraminx, Gear Cubes and Mosaic Cube. I have also seen some of these cubes in the toy department of Zeller's which is a discount department store. They are soon to be converted to Target stores. As for meeting other cubers, I do know there is a group in Vancouver that have cube meets. You could contact Dan Fast, a.k.a. Crazybadcuber, on Facebook for more information. I'll let you know if I dig up any more information.
