Re: Game Store near Hanover MA
I think there is one in Abington, though it could have moved to Foxboro? Game Keeper or something?

I googled for game stores in Pittsfield, the largest town in the area, and found this one: Fantasy Realms, a comic store that also sells games. They have a web site: http://www.comicgamestore.com/

There's some great places to hike in the area and I would be happy to make some recommendations if you want.

Oops, for some reason I read the post as Hanover MA.

Ron is correct, Fantasy Realms is all we've got that I know of.


Fantasy Realms
222 Elm St
Pittsfield, MA 01201
(413) 445-8809

Mostly comics, some games.

Directions from Hancock:

A little bit farther out is The Gamer's Grotto in Bennington, VT. I've never been here, I hear it's small but good.

Quite a bit farther out is a pretty good store in Amherst.

Amherst / Northampton tend to be destination spots for vacations in the Berkshires, so if you head out there you can stop by. I woudn't recommend a trip solely to go to the store unless you know they have something you really want.

When are you going to Hancock? I run a monthly game group, about 5 minutes away from Fantasy Realms in Pittsfield. We're playing this Wednesday, August 29th and then the third Wednesday of each month starting in September. You're welcome to join us. We play at my house so I don't want to post the location here, but gm me and I'll send it if you're interested. It looks like you're a war gamer. We don't really war game Wednesdays (sadly), but I see you have All Things Zombie and I know some local guys who play a lot of that.

Good luck, enjoy your trip.

Chris
