We have approximately 1,500 square feet of gaming space, with a large main event floor, three thematic premium game rooms, additional tables on the sales floor, and a library of nearly 500 board and card games. You can join us six days a week for scheduled events or casual game play, right here at the store. (We're currently closed on Tuesdays.)

Unless otherwise indicated, scheduled events generally cost $5 to participate. Big, store-wide events like Free RPG Day are often free to attend. Other events with prize support, promotional items, or tournaments may also be priced differently.

GAME LIBRARY

Want to play some games and don’t know where to begin? Our event rooms are outfitted with a library of nearly 500 games, from Scrabble and Uno to Zombicide and Eldritch Horror. With so many to choose from there's something for everyone, and our friendly staff enjoys recommending their favorites.

Unless another scheduled event is going on, feel free to test out some games from the library. We just ask that you pay our standard $5 event registration fee to help us maintain the space and continue bringing in the latest and the best board games to expand our collection.
