After tax problems shuttered the doors of The Dragon's Den in Poughkeepsie, gamers and comic book fans have been looking for a new home. Luckily, there's plenty of other places to go in the Hudson Valley.

Two weeks ago the Dragon's Den was seized by the government over unpaid taxes. There was some hope the store would reopen, but to date there hasn't been much news except for a Facebook posting from the owner on Friday which said the store would remain closed "for a few more days."

While things get sorted out there, you certainly have plenty of other options to geek out in the Hudson Valley. You might want to check out some of these other great spots to get your comic book and gaming fix.
