Hello everyone, just wanted you all to know a few weeks ago I had a great experience at a 'new' game store in Roslyn, PA, '7th Dimension Games'.

I describe it as 'new' because the previous owners spent much of their time promoting a game, I think it was called Flames of War (a table top miniature game) or some such thing and the store eventually went under. Normally I order on-line, but I was still worried because every once in awhile I would like a FLGS that is close to me.

Anyway, after awhile they called it quits and another brave individual decided to take over the space and start up a new store, named 7th Dimension Games. I was very skeptical at first because the previous owners obviously never did their research and had board games on their shelves that I never even heard of and were ranked in the 3000s on BGG. I walked in soon after they re-opened and there wasn't much difference, I found my Dominion expansion had a small talk and was on my way.

The next time I visited however, what a change. Now they have board games I recognize, run promotions for 20% off this or that, AND have frequent buyer programs. The owner there is very courteous, and although he is still learning a lot of the board games out there, he is willing to listen and also give his opinions on the purchases that he can comment on.

I just wanted to let you guys know that there is still a store around our area in Bucks-Montgomery County in PA with some good titles to choose from.

Here is their website, and other pertinent information.

Just thought you should know, my virus scan freaked out when I clicked on that link, detecting a trojan.

So that kept me from seeing the store, so as someone who is moving to Delaware County soon, can someone tell me how the store is, and if there is something closer in the DelCo?

I can only speak about the previous location (same owner). I thought it was a good selection for a local game store. As with most B&M, higher prices than online, but I had good customer service.

While I do most of my shopping online, I picked up a game last time I was there.

We've found the offending file and killed it. So, you should be good to go.

How often does a store owner recommend another store because it's closer to the customer? That's pure CLASS (or craziness, I'm not sureshake)

There is still a trojan on the site, FYI.

Did it give you a specific warning? A clue to the file?

The file no longer exists.

If the warning is still active, now I get a fun task of finding it hidden in a .js file...
