The Relentless Dragon Game Stores are family-owned, family-friendly, inclusive game stores located in Nashua, New Hampshire, and Londonderry, New Hampshire.
Friendly Local Game Stores are unique in that they aren’t just places to buy things—our customers often stay for a while, sometimes hours, in our sizable free gaming area. We offer “regular” tables for card and board games like Magic: the Gathering, Pokémon, A Game of Thrones, Catan, Carcassonne, and Ticket to Ride, as well as several “standing” tables appropriate for tabletop miniatures games like Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, Warmachine or Hordes, X-Wing, Armada, or historical games.
The Relentless Dragon is owned by Jay and Erika. The Relentless Dragon came about in October 2008 when Jay and Erika purchased the Silver Dragon (in Amherst, NH) from its previous owner. As the name couldn’t come with the purchase, we had to choose a new name. We previously owned a game store, Relentless Games, so we took an element from that and an element from Silver Dragon to create The Relentless Dragon.
We subsequently moved the store to Nashua from Amherst in 2009, to be closer to home as well as to the students at Nashua Community College. Moving to Nashua also made us more accessible to our customers who are vehicularly challenged, as the Nashua City Bus stops just a bit down the road from our store.
In November 2014, we made a move only ten numbers down the street, from 493 to 483 Amherst Street. The move increased our space by 500 square feet, and enabled us to provide a brighter space for playing, along with a dramatically increased selection of board games.
In the spring of 2016, we expanded into the space next to ours, which doubled our square footage, and allowed us to install two dedicated 4′ x 6′ miniature wargaming tables.
In the spring of 2018, we were offered the opportunity to purchase the assets of The Game Castle, in Londonderry—a store that first opened way back in 2001. The Londonderry store, at 4000 square feet, has a greater emphasis on wargaming, with several large wargaming tables available for customer use. There’s also plenty of room for other games with additional seating for over 60 people!
Since acquiring the Londonderry store, we have scrubbed the place top to bottom, painted the walls, laid new carpet, acquired new fixtures, and replaced all the old lights with new LED strips. We’ve gotten very positive responses from visitors about the improvements. Please come check it out and let us know what you think!
