Some of the merchandise here will help you understand how things work, from tiny items that you need a microscope to see to games about politics or history which can provide extraordinary insights.  We have items that will confound you, perplex you, delight you, and some which, even when you see them, you are not sure can exist! 

We have over 1000 jigsaw puzzles, over 1000 mechanical puzzles, 1500 games, 1000 puzzle books of all types, and about 500 items directly related to Science.   

Our games span ages and game genres.   We have an extensive collection of Euro Games (such as Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne),   Abstract strategy games (such as Chess, Go, or Blokus), children's games (such as Rat-tat-cat or Zimbos) and many family and group games.

We host regular game nights where we teach the latest games on the market, operate a game camp during school vacations, and even bring our games and puzzles to you with our On the Spot service. 

We pride ourselves on helping customers find the right items to fit their needs. We are happy to help either over the phone (617-738-7352) or in person.
