Whenever I'm in a new town, I always like to check out the local game stores. I'm in Salem and Boston from June 25 to July 2 and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations.

Thanks!

The Games People Play in Harvard Square is pretty good. They were a pioneer in selling eurogames in this country.

I would recommend Pandemonium Books & Games in Central Square, Cambridge over Games People Play for several reasons:
1. Pandemonium offers a large, FREE game playing space for Euro gamers, miniatures, RPG groups, etc. so it's good to support them.
2. They have a great collection of sci-fi/fantasy books on the main floor.
3. Great selection of Euros, minis, and RPG books on the lower level.
4. They are open later - until 10 pm.
5. Very close to the T-stop; GPP is a bit more of a walk from its Harvard stop.
6. You can sell back books and use the credit toward anything in the store including games.
7. Large selection of opened demo games to play or browse through.

For miniatures and similar games there is a large store in Malden (between Boston and Salem) http://www.hobbybunker.com/about/index.cfm and for wargames particularly there is http://www.thecompleatstrategist.com/ at 957 Commonwealth Ave in Boston.
