Best Game Store

Canton Games

2101 Essex St., (410) 276-2640,

Posted 9/19/2007

We are some serious board game freaks here at Baltimore's Most Trivial Pursuit Loving Alt-Weekly. So we were beyond excited when we heard that a store totally dedicated to games had opened in the city. No more trekking to a big box in the county hoping to find the board game we've been jonesing for--yes, we get board cravings, so what? Now we can pop over to this unassuming little Canton store and drool over its overwhelmingly comprehensive selection. They also have all sorts of trading cards, action figures, and collectibles. And the staff is friendly and helpful without being all up in your grill. Our only concern is that the store is on a sort-of hidden corner in Canton and looks more like a house than a board game utopia and if people don't start frequenting this store our happy place might go away.
