Due to a lack of threads about board gaming in RI (or, should I say, the myriad threads pointing to a now extinct location), I know three good board gaming locations. Current as of 8/9/12.

1. The Game Den
16 Cutler St.
Warren, RI
401-237-0336

Board game nights are every week, join the New England Gamers Group on Meetup.com and talk to James. Fun times, I guarantee. Store is also a fantastic place to get any merch you need.

2. The Temple Games
167 Columbus Ave
Pawtucket, RI 02860
401-305-0836

As stated in another thread, run by two great people, Grant and Madame Ximon. Sells everything you need for RPGs and tabletop, will put games on order for you, and they also host Templecon every February.

3. Arkham Asylum
276 West Main St
Norwich, CT
860-859-9848

A comic book store that is very gamer-friendly. The New London Gamers Group meets here every week to play some awesome board games. Also a great place to find Magic drafts and random merch.

Please let me know if I'm missing any.

Thanks for the links of the stores. I never knew there was a game shop right there in Pawtucket. I'm not to far from there. I'll check it out sometime.

I went to Temple Games once, felt like the outsider who they wanted to go away. I want to support local businesses but experiences like that really turn me off to places. Just my two cents.

Exactly same experience for me and my wife.

I have to agree here.
