About Us

A Duo of Friends

The Game Chest is owned and operated by two local moms – Maryam Al-Hammami and Karen Altwein. After decades of experience in the retail world, Maryam came up with the concept of not only combining board games with toys, but adding education into the mix. While sharing her vision over dinner with friends, The Game Chest was born. After lots of planning, brainstorming, and collaborating, we have opened our doors and want to share our vision with our local communities. Welcome to The Game Chest and The Game Chest Learning Center.
