Hi Guys,

I'll be visiting the Boston Area for the next couple of weeks and would love to spend my evenings board gaming if there's a cafe which welcomes outsiders. Would also look to buy a game or two(since I am traveling from outside US where Board games are relatively harder to acquire).

Have already come across this post from 2010
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/574621/game-store-boston

And this one on stuff to do in Boston from 2014
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1215093/game-stores-check-o...

So I already have Knight moves and maybe Myriad games on my list already.

PS: I'll have a rental, so happy to drive around a bit.
PPS: Will be putting up not in Boston exactly, but in Burlington. So if there's something nearby, I would rather visit that, as it would mean the extra time is spent gaming rather than driving.

Just a heads up that Myriad Games might not be worth it to you. Their Salem, NH store closed and now they are only located in Manchester NH...a much farther drive with a much smaller selection.

It's on the website, but Knight Moves also has a location in Somerville, now.

Well, if you're in Burlington and looking to play some games, check out

http://www.meetup.com/Woburn-Burlington-Board-Games-Meetup/

It would be a pretty short drive for a Wednesday night of gaming.

I am not the OP, but I work in Woburn and didn't know about this meetup. I just joined. Thanks.

Thank you, kind sir! Joined it. I'll be there this Wednesday and the next one too!

As a bonus, looks like my query helped others in the area too!

If you're interested in an impressive wargaming experience, check out the Hobby Bunker in Malden - http://www.hobbybunker.com/contact

A bit of a hike from Burlington, but worth the effort if wargaming and/or miniatures are your thing. Went there for the first time this weekend and it was impressive.

Enjoy your stay!
