Frequently Asked Questions
So really, how does it work?
To play games, first check in at the counter and we'll take your name and start a tab. We charge a $5 per person cover charge or $2.50 for kids 12 and under, accompanied by an adult. We''ll set you up with a table, then choose a game from our library to start playing. Drinks and snacks can be ordered at the counter and we'll bring them over to you so you can get back to your game. Have fun and settle up before you leave.
Can I stop in for a drink and study or do a little work?
Sure thing! On a quiet weekday and before 6pm, if you'd like to buy a drink and hang out without playing any games - ours or yours - we'll waive the library fee.
Is it okay to leave and come back later?
Short of a small break to step outside or answer a call, customers who leave for an extended time will need to start a new tab and pay the library fee again when they return.
What games do you have?
What games do you have?
Many! Currently there’s about 250 games in the library from old favorites to new releases, and we're still growing. Here's a list of our current collection.
Can you recommend games to play or teach me how to play?
Yes, as long as we’re not swamped, our staff know how to play many of the games in the library and will be happy to help you get started with recommendations or a rules overview.
Can I bring my own game?
You are absolutely welcome to bring your own games, however the $5 cover still applies.
What about miniatures games?
On a slower evening we can often accommodate some of the smaller skirmish-scale miniatures games, using 3'x3' table or smaller, such as Battletech, X-Wing, Legion, Underworlds, and Kill Team. We do ask that you use only the terrain and table mats provided for in our library.
Can I bring my own food and drink?
No, we don’t allow outside food and drink in our gaming area. We're more of that after-dinner / before-dinner kind of place.
Do you sell games?
Of course! We're primarily a retail shop and stock a wide variety of board games, card games, Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, miniatures, dice, hobby supplies, puzzles, and traditional games. If we don't have what you are looking for we can often special order it for you, just ask.
Do you have events?
We host a couple of recurring weekly and seasonal special events - check our Facebook page for our current offerings. As long as our events aren't using the entire space, you should generally be able to drop in and play games from our library at the same time.
Can I make a reservation or host a private event in your space?
No, we don’t currently take reservations nor do we host private events. We're a small shop with limited resources and we want to keep the space as open as possible so people can drop in for a game anytime.
Can I bring a large group in to play games?
Because seating is limited, it is really challenging to host a group any larger than 10 people. For small groups of up to 10, try to give us a call a couple hours in advance and we will see what we can do. Beyond that it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate your group.
Do you accept game donations?
Yes, feel free to drop off unwanted games during business hours. We’ll look them over and decide whether to add them to our game library or donate them onwards.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
Absolutely. There are disabled parking spaces right outside, no steps to navigate, and our bathroom is ADA compliant.
