About Us

Pandemonium Books and Games has resided in Cambridge for over 30 years. Our mission is to build a community for anyone interested in enriching their life through play, literature, and imaginative storytelling. We have the largest event space of its kind in the Boston area, and we strive to create a comfortable and welcoming place for folks of all ages and identities.
