About Us












Mainline Chess and Games is a cozy, little hobby gaming shop in bustling
downtown Paoli, PA., It is located just off U.S. highway 30, 25 miles WNW of
Philadelphia. We strive for the highest quality games + events & are a
home for any wayward gamers.

Come by anytime for casual play, whether it’s table-top, fantasy card,
chess, and more. Chess classes, lessons and tournaments are run almost
on a daily basis, hosted by front man, International Master Tom Bartell.

We currently host weekly MTG drafts and constructed, and plan on
introducing other mainstream fantasy card games into the event mix such
as Yu-Gi-Oh, and Force of Will. We are open to any other gaming events
too. Please come by and leave feedback of what Events you would like to
see! We’ll make it happen.
