Surprised at the response that I got to this thread I realize folks here can probably help out with this question: does anyone remember a game store in Providence, RI that was there in the early 80s? Can't remember the name or even where but I think it was a the bottom of a hill (as are many things in that town!)

When I lived there, from the late 80's to the early 90's there were two that I frequented, one in the "mall" downtown, that now belongs to Johnson and Wales, that was The Game Keeper. The one I think was in Mt. Pleasant near the old dollar theater.

I took my nephews to see the musical play "Oliver!" in Providence about 10-12 years ago and we went into a game store before the show. I can't remember the name of the store, but I remember looking at a medieval/fantasy game that had eye catching components. The store employee assured me that the game wasn't nearly as good as it looked and tried to steer me toward a highly-interactive card game (lot's of "take that" involved). I wasn't into gaming at the time, so I didn't buy anything. But I probably would have bought the medieval/fantasy game (based on appearance alone) if the employee hadn't discouraged me.
