Recently unemployed Nashua resident Joshua Gaillien has opened a more modern take on the arcade experience , located at 493 Amherst street and called Gamers Sanctuary.

Gamers Sanctuary main features are 7x9 foot screens that allow players playing in 4-player split-screen combat to have the equivalent of a 68-inch screen to themselves.  It also features a 100-inch screen for motion games.

Gaillien is hoping that proximity to Nashua Technical College and gaming store The Relentless Dragon , as well as space rental events such as birthday parties, will help Gamers Sanctuary fill an entertainment role once held by bowling alleys and movie theaters.  Even with XBoxLive, Steam and other online services, in-person group gaming is still popular and we hope Gaillien succeeds wildly.
