This Post was updated in October 2022 to reflect changes in the links!
Gamer’s Gambit stores in Connecticut and New Jersey are now history, but this fan will always love games. This post is a referral to all sorts of game and comic fun. The following links go to game and comic manufacturer pages that will let you put in your zip code to find a local game store carrying the types of games or comics you’re looking for or to websites of interest to gamers (links will open a new tab).
Until I move the files, you can view the archive of more than 200 events, news, and reviews of games enjoyed over the seven years during the stores’ heyday at the original Blogger site here.
