Have you ever wanted to go to a place and let your inner geek out, without judgment or scrutiny? Well, if you head down West Main Street, you will find the safe haven of all geeks in Stroudsburg. Found at this address: 580 Main Street, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania 18360.

Gamer’s Edge was founded by geeks for geeks. Here you can buy games for systems like the original Xbox, PlayStation 2, or NES. You can also find board games, tabletop games, role-playing games, and comics. At the front desk, they sell Magic the Gathering cards, Pokemon, cosplay weapons, and snacks.

The business also hosts events that you can attend just to blow off steam. For Magic: The Gathering players (Magic Players), they have Magic Friday Nights, where a tournament is held where players can face off against each other.

Magic is the most popular and numerous of the several card games sold at the store. Similar to Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering is a turn-based card game where the players face off against each other trying to diminish the others’ HP or health points.

Dungeons & Dragons, D&D, is another popular product sold. First published in 1974 by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, D&D has grown into one of the most popular tabletop role-playing game in the world.

Wizards of the Coast, the publishing company that prints the books, recently released a new lore-based supplement book called, Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes.
