One of the best game stores on the East Coast b(the Compleat Strategist) is in King of Prussia, PA, near the King of Prussia megamall (which you might also want to check out). King of Prussia is a northern suburb that is well worth the trip.

See the geeklist item for Pennsylvania here:

Be sure to check your map though, Pennsylvania covers a lot of distance.

I second the recommendation to visit The Compleat Strategist near the town of King of Prussia. You can drop by after visiting Valley Forge park, where George Washington trained his troops to give a great defeat over the British during... er, never mind... modest Anyway, all is forgiven now, let's have a pint at the local brewpub. I'll drink to CAMRA!


Also, Games Keep in West Chester is also not terribly far from Philly, or King of Prussia. You could see both in the same trip

+1 to Redcap's. Those guys are great. Good selection, too. Just bought a game there the other day. The box had gotten damaged in shipping, so they knocked a few bucks off the price for me.

Compleat Strategist and Redcap's Corner are both great, but I've had the best and friendliest service at 7th Dimension Games in Jenkintown. They definitely deserve a look:

And Philly's a really great town. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Cheers.
