Chiming in because I'm from the area and interested in the answer as well. The Sage's Quest used to be great, but I believe they have closed. Anyone else know the answer?

I'm probably not the best one to answer the question, as I haven't been to 2 of the 3 that I know of, but here's what I sort of know. There is a store in Lancaster called the Jester's Cap. I have never been there but I believe they have the biggest selection of Euro games. In Niagara Falls at the outlet mall there is a Christmas store that when you walk into it the whole middle section is games - mostly party games with some Euros sprinkled in. There is also Dave and Adam's Card World in Amherst, shich I have been told has some games.

Basically I don't think we have anywhere that would be termed a "gem", and I don't know of anywhere that specializes in war games, but if you desperately need a game, and are not too picky there are places to get them from. You might have better luck in Rochester.

Clayton's, which is a fancy toy store, has a few titles.

Are you coming to town JP? I noticed in your profile that you are from Madison.

I stopped in Adam and Dave's today, and they do not have board games regularly. They have a ton of CCGs and the have minis like MageKnight and HeroClix.

the jesters cap bought out the sages quests when they closed, last time in there , just before christmas, they mostly only had the older euro games from sages quest, make a day of it and travel to boldos. play some games with them (they have open copies), they give great recommendations on what type of games you like or what type of game that is etc (just ask), play games all the time in the store. no i dont own it or work there, but i drive there for my games just for their service etc

Clayton's is still around? I thought they had closed when the big box toy stores started moving in...

I'm pretty sure it is. I haven't been there in a couple of years however.
