I'm off to work in the Boston area next week. Are there any good game stores (or book stores) in the area that I should be sure to check out?

Its been 9 years since I've lived in Boston so the info in this post may be a bit out of date.  

The Brattle Book Shop is the epitome of a bookshop in my mind.  I doubt you'd find any RPGs there but its good for antique books.

Buck-a-Book is a New England chain somewhat equivalent t Half Price Books.  Sometimes you'll find RPG items there but its a crap shoot.

Pandemonium Books is probably your best bet for RPG's although they seem to be opposed to "obsolete" editions.

Lastly, there's the Compleat Strategist which used to be good for Avalon Hill / SPI war games although they seem to have expanded into more general gaming.

Buck-a-Book went under in 2005.

Oops.  I probably should have actually tried visiting the link before posting it.   :oops:

Thanks folks!  Deadlord and I are talking about getting together in Manchester before I fly out Friday morning (next week), if anyone's interested in joining us :D

I'm definitely there. As far as roleplaying stores, ManchVegas doesn't have much, but even if we just shoot the shit for a while, it would be an honor!

I'll definitely enjoy it :D  Several folks on ENWorld have suggested stores in Cambridge, Chelmsford, and Westford areas to check out, so if we just eat some food and catch up, Frank, I'm game :D
