Not on the Ct. side but maybe the New York side (Danbury is right on the CT/NY border). I haven't "crossed the border" to see.

If you feel like taking a ride, there's War & Pieces in West Hartford (about an hour trip up I-84).
Are you moving to the area or just visiting?

I'm pretty sure that War and Pieces has closed shop. My brother was there for a closeout sale, so I assume they're closed by now.

The Dragon's Lair in West Hartford is a nice store, but not too close to Danbury.

There's Cave Comics in Newtown, which is about 15 minutes away, but they're mostly a comic and Games Workshop place.

There used to be a store in the Danbury Mall, but closed a while back.

Anywho, just make sure to stop at Stew Leanord's for some ice cream.

There's Wright Cards & Gaming at 425 Main Street (beneath I-84), phone 203-778-6300. I was only in there once and there weren't any euro-style games, but they had only just opened and things might have changed since then.

There's also Cave Comics in Newtown (http://www.cavecomics.com). They're also near to I-84 (exit 10, Sandy Hook). They used to be primarily comics and miniatures, but they have euros now too.

They've got Euros now? I may have to check them out the next time I'm headed down to Danbury.

That sucks - I loved that store and stopped in every time I was in the area - which has been awhile. Sad... so sad... sigh.

Wow. I can't believe War & Pieces closed. It was always busy when I went there. Man, that stinks.

I go to Cave Comics pretty often and they have a good selection of Euros. minis, cards, and all sorts of games. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Cave Comics definitely has a good collection, and a new store opened up down in Norwalk recentlythat is a bit closer than Manchester. Are you looking for purchasing, browsing, or playing?
