According to the CDC, "You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and got the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC."
We also currently require everyone to wear a face-covering fully over their nose and mouth in the store at all times; this includes our event space. We can provide masks for anyone who would like one.
Many of our events have limited seating capacity. These events will usually have preregistration available via tickets on our website several weeks in advance. Click here for preregistration for Roleplaying Games and click here for preregistration for special events like TCG tournaments.
