Sam Reed is the assistant manager of Quarterstaff Games on Church Street. He says the store had record sales for the holidays.
The hobby gaming craze is branching into the younger crowds.
Reed says since families aren't traveling as much, they're buying games as an alternative.
"It's cheaper to stay at home, buy a board game, buy a card game. It lasts a little longer. You get a lot of replay out of it, versus a trip where you only get to go once," Reed said.
