Greetings,
I'm headed to the Boston area (specifically, Marlborough) this coming weekend and wanted to know what game stores are in the area.
Any and all help is appreciated.

Compleat Strategist in Boston

There are also some in the surrounding cities and towns depending on how far you are willing to travel.

The two earlier suggestions are in the city; not an easy or pleasant commute. From Marlborough, you can take Rt 85 south to Route 9 and go to The Whiz (http://www.whiznet.com/), or 495N to Rt 2 to Acton and check out Gaming Etc.(http://www.gamingetc.com/). There is also Excelsior Comics and Games (http://www.excelsiorcomicsandgames.com/) in Maynard.

If you're actually in Boston this weekend, let me know and I can guide you to game stores or game get togethers.

In addition to these, there's also Pandemonium in Cambridge (near Central Square). They have open board gaming at 7:00 on Sundays as I recall.

There's also the board game cafe Knight Moves in Boston and Somerville.

Not sure what other days you'll be around. https://www.reddit.com/r/bostonboardgames/ has meetups for board gaming on Sundays as well, if you're looking to play games and not just browse stores.

I'm less familiar with what is closer to Marlborough, but I'm sure there's something for you.

The Compleat Strategist is your best bet. It is small and relatively unorganized but I have found many OOP games there at MSRP...and not a penny less.

The Games People Play has a small selection and used to have a clearance table that ranged from great to ho-hum but I haven't been there in a while.

Pandemonium has a HUGE playing space downstairs mostly filled with MtG. Their board game selection includes most of the popular titles you've heard of.

All the other stores you can probably skip.

PoppaBear, keep an eye on the weather.

Could get a visit from hurricane Matthew late Saturday or Sunday.

As of this morning, the storm was tracking well south of Massachusetts and it looks like we might only get a little rain.

all other stores skip? naaa... there's Eureka Puzzles which actually has a small yet Just Right selection of board games and some esoteric card games (think some japanese ones). Brookline.

But from out west I think he got his best options, I suppose.
