Alternate Universes in Holmes is one of the best board game shops in the region and the the perfect store to expand your board game collection during this time when so many of us are stuck at home, writes Nick Vadala for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Board games have proven to be the perfect time-killer during the pandemic, with major manufactures Hasbro and Mattel, the makers of Monopoly and Uno, reporting a huge increase in sales.

More involved games are also seeing a resurgence, including Dungeons & Dragons, which saw a 35 percent rise in revenue last year.

Family-owned Alternate Universes is the ideal place for card game lovers, whether you enjoy Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, or something else entirely.

In addition to buying decks and individual cards, customers can also sell some of their rarer cards to the store while earning a few bucks in the process.

The shop has proven so popular that it has already expanded to two more locations, in Blue Bell and Wilmington.
