Reopening Updates 

Our doors are now open in Portsmouth for in-store shopping every day:
Monday-Saturday 9am to 6pm
Sunday 10am to 6pm

Our Portland location will be open Monday, June 1 with modified hours:
Monday-Saturday 10am to 7pm
Sunday 11am to 5pm

You can also shop Diversions 24/7 online at, as well as through curbside pickup at both location. We are available through phone, email, or Facebook at both locations.

We are very excited to welcome you back into one of New England’s best local board games stores. We ask that you please adhere to the following guidelines to keep our team and other customers safe:

🧩 Wear a mask (available for a small fee if needed)
🧩 Use our hand sanitizing station prior to shopping
🧩 Follow social distancing guidelines
🧩 Limit of one person per group
🧩 Limit of 6 customers in the store at a time
🧩 Our game space and bathroom remain closed

If you don’t think you can adhere to the above requirements, please use our curbside or shipping options. Events remain cancelled until further notice at both locations, and our play space and demo library are currently unavailable for customer use.

We welcome feedback about your experience. This is a tricky decision and we take the safety and health of our team and our customers very seriously.

It’s been wonderful to have the doors open in Portsmouth, welcoming back the community. We look forward to saying hello to all of our friends in Portland very soon! We are eternally grateful for your support during this time, and encourage everyone to #shoplocal when you can to help small businesses stay alive and thrive!
