Hi guys!

I'll be going over to US for the first time in my life (from Singapore)! :D
Will be staying in CMU in Pittsburgh and taking a flight to the nearest Disney World... I think it's Florida.

I am wondering if there are any puzzle shops nearby these 2 places? :)

I live in pittsburgh! There's a shop on smithfield street called S.W. Randall gifts and toys that has some puzzles. Nothing major, but there's some stuff there. I haven't found anything else, but didn't really look.

The best of town is the strip district where you can find the most amazing food. PM me and let me know when you'll be coming. If you're downtown while I'm at work, I can take you over to S.W. Randall's.

Also, if you're driving in pittsburgh, you should know a few things. It's a horrible, horrible city filled with really, really, stupid drivers.

Wow your reply is so fast :shock:

I really appreciate your kind offer :D
However I think my friends in CMU will know the directions in Strip so no need to trouble you over it.
The important thing is the shop and street names.

Thanks!

It's S.W. Randall's on Smithfield Street in town. It's right by wiener world and a parking garage.

I also live pretty close to Pittsburgh, there really aren't any big puzzle stores but the city is great for a lot of other things, if you're into sports theres almost always something going on.

Than you Andrew Carnegie. For being the great Robber Baron you were.

I drive past the ETC building everyday on my way to work. (Well usually. Less traffic that way) and I've always to go in and look at the stuff they have in there.
