Get the Rogue Card!

roguecardWe’ve heard the requests for many years. “I wish you guys had a membership card.” We’ve been thinking about it and going over it for just as long, and now we are proud to present The Rogue Card! Custom designed by our own Nick Budd, bearing your name and specifically for you, the Rogue Card is now available for purchase.

For a $35 annual fee, you get a variety of perks. A 10% discount on the monthly Gaming with Rogues boardgame selection, a 25% discount (instead of the usual 15) on the monthly Reading with Rogues graphic novel selections and a 10% discount on our Staff Pick of the Week comic books (15% if more than one staffer picks the same book) every week! In addition, members will get first dibs on promotional items like free posters and more, and something special on your birthday! In addition, you’ll get access to our boardgame and card game lending library, so you can try out games before you buy them.

Twice a year, we’ll hold members-only after-hours parties at the store with gaming, food and drink provided. We’ll also offer up gaming sessions with the Rogues, with Dave and Randy each running at least one RPG a year for members, and entry into a raffle to win a custom action figure from Nick Budd. And… when we do our annual clearance sales, members get “Critical Hit” privileges, doing automatic maximum damage (a.k.a. maximum discount) throughout the sale.

We’ll be testing other perks throughout the year as the program develops. Get your Rogue Card now by swinging by the store and asking to get a membership card!

Gaming with Rogues – 7 Wonders Duel in March!

7wondersduelOn the third Saturday of every month, Rogues Gallery will host a casual gaming night – each month will focus on a different game. The game night will begin at 6:30 PM and run until 9:00 PM, when the store closes.

This month’s game is on March 18th, and we’ll be hosting 7 Wonders Duel! In 7 Wonders: Duel, you and your opponent each lead an ancient civilization to greatness—but only one of you can win. Over the course of three Ages you both draft cards, advancing your civilization one development at a time. You can choose to become a military superpower and conquer your opponent in battle or seek scientific supremacy. You can bolster your economy with markets and ports or create great public works like aqueducts and senates. Above all, you can build magnificent wonders which will give your civilization lasting renown and ease your path to victory.

Since 7 Wonders Duel is only a 2-player game, we may also offer up regular 7 Wonders if anyone wants to play.

So whether you’ve played 7 Wonders Duel before or just want to try it out, come join us for Gaming with Rogues! And don’t forget that with your Rogue Card, you can get 10% off on 7 Wonders Duel from now until the end of March!

Magic the Gathering Prerelease in April

x5vcfbwc49_h3derFIRST ROUND BEGINS AT NOON – SECOND ROUND BEGINS AT 4:00 – PRE-REGISTRATION STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

Rogues Gallery will be holding two prerelease events for Magic: The Gathering’s new set, Amonkhet, on Sunday, April 23rd! We recommend that you call or email ahead to preregister, because we have limited space and tend to fill up well before the day of the event itself. We have room for 16 players in the first event, beginning at noon, and 16 players in the second event, beginning at 4:00 PM. If space allows, we are happy to allow players to play in both prerelease tournaments… players will have to buy-in to both tournaments, you cannot carry over cards or decks from the first prerelease into the second. In addition, of late we’ve had folks sign up and not show up, so if you don’t get in on your preferred time, you are welcome to sign up as an alternate or to come in on the day and try to get available spaces.

Registration will begin at noon on April 23rd. We’ll begin the first event at 12:30 with 30 minutes to construct your decks, and the pre-release will run 3 rounds from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM or so. Please note that if you are preregistered, you must arrive by 12:15 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.

The second tournament will begin registration at 4:00, and the tournament will start as close to 4 PM as we can manage, with 30 minutes to construct your decks. Please note for those preregistered, you must arrive by 4:00 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.

Prerelease packs will be $25.99 plus tax. You must buy a pack for each tournament you enter.

We will allow walk-ins for both tournaments if the space is not filled, but we encourage preregistration, as we generally fill up fairly quickly. In addition, because there are two events, and because the second event may run later than our usual closing time, we won’t be able to offer trading or casual place space after the tournaments end.

Prize support will be in the form of Amonkhet boosters. We award boosters for each round you win. The remainder are divided up into first, second and third prizes.

In addition to the main prerelease tournament events, if space allows, we will offer open dueling, allowing any player who wants to play to purchase Amonkhet Planeswalker Decks to play against each other, as well as prerelease tournament players who are between matches.
