Just wanted to let other geeks know what a consistent pleasure it has been doing business with this brick and mortar store via the BGG marketplace and over the phone. I know there are bigger retailers out there, and I have ordered from them, but I am getting consistently better service, excellent communication, solid packing, and REALLY FAIR PRICES from Karl Kammerer at The Games Keep. For all the stories I hear about other stores (and their demises), you should check out this FLGS that is doing it RIGHT. His BGG handle is gameskeepllc.

And no, he didn't ask for this.

Wish I lived in PA, but next time I'm passing through, I'm stopping by.
Cheers.

He is a good person and the store is an excellent one. Well, the old store was a hole in the wall, but his stock was amazing and he more than made up for the physical space with his customer-centric attitude, knowledge and general politeness. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't seen the new store yet, and it's been open just over a month. Sorry Karl! blush

This is my FLGS and it's a *great* shop. This is everything you could ask for in an FLGS. One of these days I'll make it in there for game night (with the new gaming space and all). If you live anywhere near Philly/King of Prussia/West Chester/Northern Delaware you should make it a point to stop by. Make it day, West Chester has some cool things to do and great places to eat/drink.

Karl, I hope you're making out and will be in business for a long time to come. Hopefully you're getting those West Chester University (like 2 blocks away now) kids hooked and making a fortune

See you soon.

My sister in law is going to be moving to the Philly area soon and both her and her husband enjoy gaming as well as me and my wife. Will check this place out over the summer hopefully.

Yep, you can't beat this place. Karl seems to have everything in stock, his prices are highly competitive with mail-order houses due to no shipping cost (even including PA sales tax) -- and he even gets some items in before they do!

I find it fascinating that the thread started and had a couple responses and then sat dormant for one and a half year. Then it got resurrected for a single comment and sat dormant for almost two months. Then it got resurrected AGAIN for a couple comments and sat dormant for almost two years. Then it got resurrected AGAIN again and sat dormant for four and a half years. THEN it got resurrected this last time for a couple comments.

You have to respect a thread that has so many comebacks in it, yet only has a small amount of comments.

It just goes to show how awesome Games Keep is (it truly is). The Chinese food place near it? Not as good.

Games Keep is by far the best gaming store I have visited. Most game stores I have been cater to miniature games or MTG, this store puts board games first. I live about 45 minutes away and purchase most of my games there. The store is well kept, the selection is great and Karl is the best. I can't recommend this store enough.
