So i've just moved into the Philadelphia, PA area (Plymouth Meeting to be precise) and i have no idea where to go. i have no friends to play games with and i don't even know where a good board game shop is near me. I'm pretty close to King of Prussia. Anyone have any suggestions?

They meet at the Oxford Valley Mall, too far for me. Some of them meet once a month at The Games Keep in West Chester, PA where I play every week.

Unfortunately, there are no game stores in Philly itself. Since you are to the west of the city, the places that are recommended in the King of Prussia area are the best for you. If you find yourself in South Jersey, All Things Fun is a good store in West Berlin, NJ.

Can't help you with finding fellow gamers though.

Salutations !

There's a post I made about the Lansdowne Games Day on the 25th. It's about 20 miles from you, but not too hard to get to - take I-476 (ramp from Germantowne Pike says 'Chester') to PA 3 (West Chester Pike) east (left from exit ramp) to Lansdowne Ave (right after the Kohl's), right on Lansdowne to Strafford, park - you're there.

Hope you can make it.

Yours, John Desmond
