in the Store
|If you need any orderlies [for your asylum] hit me up, all of my personalities are orderly trained.|
Welcome to Worlds Apart Games, America's first all-volunteer, collectively owned game store.
On the surface, Worlds Apart is just like any other game store. We've got a full selection of gaming books, board games, card games, and dice. We run numerous events including Magic tournaments, board game nights, and RPGs, most of which are free to attend.
What makes Worlds Apart unique is that it is run by the Pioneer Valley Gamer Collective, a non-profit organization whose mission is to use games to make the world a better place. First, they have built Worlds Apart as a space for the use of the gaming community to gather, game, and hang out. Additionally, they will work to do outreach with other organizations to use games to help with everything from non-profit fundraising to education to community development.
Interested in becoming involved? Just drop by the store and ask for Desmond, or Kiernan.
