Try Crossroad Games. Standish Maine.

www.crossroadgames.com

Today is their sixth anniversary. Free cookout and a sale on everything in the store. Its mostly ccg and miniatures, however they do have a good euro boardgame selection.

Last time I was there (July 2004), they had a tiny little shelf in the back with almost nothing. What kind of selection are we talking about now?

They have expanded their Euro selection. Last time I was there they had all of the new AH stuff and all of the versions of Carc. I even picked up a copy of El Grande and Acquire in shrink!!

I will have to check out Crossroad Games too.

The 2 that come to mind for me are

Jumpgate in Portsmouth

http://www.jumpgatelink.com

and

Paperback Bazzar in Somersworth
http://www.pbbz.com

There is also G Wilikers in downtown Portsmouth, but that is more childrens games.

Jumpgate seemed to be dead and gone. There was nothing at the address.

Diversions Puzzles & Games ( http://www.diversionsgames.com/ ) seems to be the only store in Portsmouth currently, but just across the street and up a block is a small Bullmoose store, which might have games down in Portsmouth.

If you venture closer to Portland, ME, you'll find two Bullmoose stores in the area, both with a decent selection of games. There is one on Paine Road in Scarborough, just south of the mall (it's just past Sam's Club on the right, if heading towards the mall). The other is in Mill Creek, just after the bridge you take leaving the downtown area. Bullmoose is more of a book/video/music store, but has an okay selection of games. http://www.bullmoose.com/

And if heading to Old Orchard Beach, just up Old Orchard Blvd, is Board Silly, which is mainly a puzzle place. But still, a decent selection of games. http://www.boardsillyonline.com/
