I will be in Fairfax (Fair Ridge Drive), VA on 9/7 and am looking for a place to play. Are there any stores in this area that play in-store games on Thursday nights? Or gaming groups?

Don't know about gaming groups that meet on Thursday night, but you will be incredibly close to a very nice game store with gaming tables:

The Game Parlor is about 5 minutes up the road from where you will be:

Game Parlor has a gaming group meeting there every tuesday. For gaming elsewhere in the area, check out GCOM's web site.

I agree. Game Parlor has open gaming every night, and they are open till 10, I think. They are open till ten on Friday; I go there every week. They also have an excellent selection of board games, miniatures and rules to play them, role-playing games and a huge selection of collectable games. They also carry dice and other gaming accessories.

I agree with the others. Everything considered, The Game Parlor is the best game store I've ever been in. The staff is great, the selection is very good, they have a customer loyalty rewards program, and a fair amount of free table space for card, board and miniature gaming.

Sorry, I missed that you will only be there on that day.

Game Parlor is probably going to be your best bet. Even if there isn't an organized event, you probably could find a pickup game of something, since they have tables.

Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

Definitely try the GameParlor. Even on nights they don't have organized gaming there are usually folks in there playing games.

Wow. Game Parlor was a nice store. Very nice.
Unfortunately, no board gamers between 7:00 - 8:00 on Thursday (although there were 4 tables of minituares, 5 tables of cards and even an RPG group in the back room--so it was definitely busy).
