Burbank is the land of bizarre treasures, and on North Hollywood Way you'll find one such jewel: The Last Grenadier. It may not be as welcoming, large or well lit as the mall shops, and the staff may not say a single word to you the entire time you're there. But for many members of the gaming world, those are actually good things. Much like Carl Conrad Coreander's shop in The NeverEnding Story, the Last Grenadier is a dusty lair of obscure items, specializing in World War I–era games like Wings of War. It might all be a bit much for someone just entering the world of gaming, but veterans will find books, paints, sets and figurines they can't locate anywhere else. And, if you prefer to play with your little guy right there in the store, don't worry; they have a couple of tables in the back. 820 N. Hollywood Way, Burbank. (818) 848-9144.
