I'm going on a road trip through the northeast soon, and I was wondering if there were any really good stores I should stop at? I prefer to buy used games when possible but haven't had much luck finding anything good at thrift stores.

Do you guys know of any stores that specifically have used games? Suggestions for stores that are really awesome for other reasons (really large selection, good discounts, etc) are welcome as well.

The areas I will be in are:
-most of MA (including Boston)
-New York City
-upstate NY
-Portland, ME
-NJ
-possibly PA
-possibly NH

Feel free to recommend places that are not specifically in those areas but are somewhat nearby. I'm sure I'll be headed to the northeast again soon so if I can't stop this time then I'll try on a different trip.

Thanks for any help!

If you get as far south as Newark Delaware, I would recommend Days of Knights.

Myriad Games in Salem, NH and Manchester, NH have used games.

I buy a lot of used games from Ye Olde Toy Soldier Shop in Meriden CT through ebay. I believe they have a storefront, but you should contact BGG user:

Millennium Games (http://www.millenniumgames.com/news/list) in Rochester is the best store we've found in the Central NY area. They have new releases, as well as usually a sale table or two. Good selection of board games, RPGs, minis, Magic.

If you're going along the Southern Tier, Jupiter Games in Vestal (http://jupitergames.info/store/), near Binghamton, is smaller but good to stop at if it's on your way.

If you're going that way, you might hop up to Ithaca. There's a new store open, The Enchanted Badger (http://www.theenchantedbadger.com/)

We haven't been there yet, but it's close to the Salvation Army at which I've found decent board games in the past. If you're in Ithaca on a Friday night, there's a large-ish game night at Cornell.

If you're near Albany, Flights of Fantasy (http://www.fof.net/) has a modest collection of board games and RPGs, including a few used, but it is also a sci-fi bookstore, and the pizza place next door has amazing stromboli.

Well I certainly wouldn't complain if I found a store that had all the games in your collection :) Unfortunately though I don't actually have much money to spend on games. I'm hoping to find a store where I can browse through everything I eventually want and maybe get lucky and find a used copy of something for a bit less than normal.


Also thanks everyone for the suggestions so far!
