Round Up For Charity!

Rogues Gallery Comics & Games is offering a new charitable donation system for our customers. If you’d like, you can “round up” your purchase to the nearest dollar amount, and at the end of the month, we’ll collect all the rounded-up amounts and send a check to that month’s charity.

We’ll also be matching the first $100 of donations each month.

This can be done with cash or card, and it’s as easy as asking the person ringing you up to round up your transaction. Our charity of the month for February is American Cancer Society.

Boardgame Nights on Tuesdays!

In response to popular demand, we’re starting up a regular boardgame and cardgame night on Tuesdays! The tables are always open, of course, but for this specific night we figure people should start showing up around 6 PM, and we’ll be open until 9 PM so y’all can play games!

Bring your own, or feel free to sample our well-stocked game library!

Game Space: Rules & Reservations

We have two standing game tables available for free play, as long as they aren’t reserved for other use.

Standard reserved times include Monday night from 6 PM – 9 PM (Heroclix), Thursday night from 6 PM – 9 PM (D&D Adventurers League), Friday night from 6 PM – 10 PM (Magic The Gathering) and one Saturday a month from 6 PM – 9 PM (Gaming with Rogues).

Game Table Reservations:

The tables are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, you can also reserve the tables for a 3 hour window, and we can have a standing reservation if someone wants to run a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly game.

Standard slots are 11 AM – 1 PM, 1 PM – 4 PM, and 4 PM – 7 PM. If you’re running a longer game, you can sign up for two consecutive slots, and any of these can extend another 2 hours, provided there isn’t someone signed up to use the table after that.

If you have a Rogue membership, you can reserve up to three slots free per week. Also, any time you purchase a game from us, you can ask to have a slot reserved to play that game (or any other game you have) anytime in the next two weeks (14 days).

We will also provide free game space for anyone wishing to demo or playtest their game for our players, provided the demo is open to all customers.

Otherwise, we will ask for $10 to reserve a table for a 2-6 hour slot.

We ask that those with a reserved game slot arrive within 15 minutes of the start time, or we reserve the right to offer the space to someone else.

Organized Play:

We support organized play for Heroclix, Dungeons & Dragons and Magic the Gathering at present, plus boardgames under the Asmoplay program.

We are happy to support more organized play if there is an interest, and can order organized play kits if you have a group that is interested in purchasing them for use at the store. If we can get a big enough group for organized play, Rogues Gallery will provide organized play kits and prizes, although we will at that point ask that anyone be allowed to play in tournaments.

In-Store Gaming Rules:

1. We’re a family store – please keep cursing/swearing to a minimum – even if a red dragon just ate your favorite character.

2. Keep other shoppers in mind when you’re playing – We want you to enjoy yourself, but make sure and keep shopping aisles clear and keep the noise level reasonable.

3. Food is allowed (within reason), we just ask you to be careful not to spill on the product, tables, other gamers, etc.

4.We expect everyone to be a courteous winner and a gracious loser, especially if you’re playing with strangers. A little friendly banter is fine, but smack talk and whining will not be tolerated.

5. Showing up a little early is encouraged. It’s important that our staff is able to close up on time and get home, so we try not to run gaming late if possible.

6. Clean up after yourself. Trash cans are in the bathroom and up at the counter.

Staffers’ and DMs’ decisions are final.  If you have an issue, feel free to email or call the management, but arguing with the staff or DM at the time is not acceptable.

Breaking these rules can result in a warning, a temporary suspension of table privileges, or a ban on future use of game tables, at the discretion of management.

P.S. We’d like to ask that folks not use the tables for sitting and reading, to keep them available for use in playing board, card, and role-playing games.

Comic Grab Bags are Back!

Rogues Gallery has a limited amount of comic grab bags available now, while supplies last! They’re $5 (+tax) for a blind bag of 10 comics, hand-selected by management, featuring no duplicates, and separated out by Marvel, DC, and Independent comics. We’ll have Secret Wars, DC Rebirth, and Image bags soon! Selections are primarily from 2013-2016, and there’s a bunch of good stuff in there! Get ’em while they last, we’ll have them until we clear out the overstock and then it’ll probably be a couple years before we do it again!

Note: While there are no duplicates in individual bags, there may be duplicates if you buy multiple bags. There are no returns or exchanges on grab bags, all sales are final!

Gaming with Rogues: Star Realms

On 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 February 17th, and we’ll be playing store favorite Star Realms, with prizes!

Star Realms is a spaceship combat deckbuilding game designed by Magic Pro Tour Champions and Hall of Famers Darwin Kastle and Rob Dougherty (developer and cofounder of the Ascension Deckbuilding Game).

So whether you’ve played 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 Star Realms and its expansions from now until the end of February!

Also, Gaming with Rogues is an open game night, so folks are welcome to play any game in our well-stocked boardgame and card game library or bring a favorite game of their own!

 

Annual Inventory Reduction Sale in February!

Our annual inventory clearance sale continues this week! We’re clearing out a wide variety of graphic novels, games, miniatures, manga and other merchandise before doing our yearly inventory. The discount begins at 55% and customers then roll 2d6 to add 2-12% onto that discount! Rogue Card members get a critical hit on their rolls, automatically earning 12% on the discount!

The clearance sale ends on Sunday, March 11th.

 

New Facebook group for role-players and board gamers!

We’ve created a new game planning and discussion group on Facebook!

Our hope is that folks can use this space to discuss games in a fun, friendly manner, but most importantly, use it to find like-minded people to play games with in our store game space, which is available free of charge during our regular hours of 10 AM – 9 PM most days, and 12 PM – 7 PM on Sundays, as long as there aren’t other games scheduled.

You can find the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/RGGames/

Gaming with Rogues – Potion Explosion

On 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 January 20th, and we’ll be playing Potion Explosion!
 
It’s senior year at the Horribilorum Sorcery Academy for Witty Witches and Wizards, and all of your hard work and studying comes down to this: the final exams! In Potion Explosion, players collect ingredients from the unique slide dispenser to complete the potions they’re working on. They must choose carefully as they pull out supplies such as Dragon Smoke and Fairy Dandruff. Players may even be able to cause ingredients to collide together and set off a chain reaction, allowing them to grab huge numbers of ingredients on a single turn. This will be critical in the completion of potions like The Elixir of Blind Love or The Balm of Uttermost Stickiness. It will require all of the magical craftiness that the players possess to graduate head of the class!
So whether you’ve played 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 Potion Explosion from now until the end of January!
 
Also, Gaming with Rogues is an open game night, so folks are welcome to play any game in our well-stocked boardgame and card game library or bring a favorite game of their own!

Magic the Gathering Rivals of Ixalan Prerelease

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

The legendary city of Orazca has been found, but it will not be claimed without a fight. Now, you must outpace, outwit, and overpower your rivals as you vie for control of this ancient metropolis. Succeed, and you will wield the greatest power of the plane.

Rogues Gallery will be holding two prerelease events for Magic: The Gathering’s new set, Rivals of Ixalan, on Sunday, January 14th! 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 18 players in the first event, beginning at noon, and 18 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 January 14th. 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 Rivals of Ixalan 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 Rivals of Ixalan Planeswalker Decks to play against each other, as well as prerelease tournament players who are between matches.

Arkham Horror 2017 Invocation Event

On Sunday, December 17th, Rogues Gallery will be holding an Arkham Horror: The Card Game Invocation Event for fans of the game!

Come out and play Arkham Horror in an all-new mode by choosing one or more Ultimatums that makes the game harder for that group of investigators! There is a $5 buy-in for the game, but each player will get a Daisy Walker alternate art card, a Daisy Walker token, and a playmat featuring Eixodolon’s Pet. We’ll have room for up to 4 players, and if there’s interest, we should be able to order more kits to accommodate more players!

We’ll have a set of Arkham Horror on hand for 4 players, but more players will need to bring their own copies of Arkham Horror to play. We’ll be keeping an eye on RSVPs to see if we need to order more event packs.

Holiday Hours – December

maxsantacolorWe’ll be closed on New Year’s Day and Christmas Day so that our staff can celebrate the holidays. Also, if you have last minute holiday gifts to buy, we want to let you know the last chance we’ll have to place orders.

On Saturday, December 16th, we’ll close at 7 PM instead of 9 PM for our staff holiday party.

We will be closed entirely on Monday, December 25th and Monday, January 1st.

We’ll place our last comics order of the season on Sunday, December 17th and our last game order of the season on Wednesday, December 20th.

Black Friday Sale and Thanksgiving Hours

maxsantacolorOur ninth annual Black Friday sale is coming on Friday, November 24th. Come kick off your holiday shopping and earn bonus gift certificates!

From the time we open (10 AM) until the time we close (10 PM) on Friday, November 24th, any purchase you make will also earn you bonus holiday gift certificates. For every $25 you spend, you’ll get $5 on a gift certificate, and you can break those up into individual $5 gift certificates, one big gift certificate with the whole amount or any other combination you choose. So for example, if you spend $100, you’ll get $20 in our special holiday gift certificates.

Rogue Card members will get a special bonus! If you show your Rogue Card, you will get $5 on gift certificates for every $20 you spend! And yes, you can buy a Rogue membership on Black Friday, although the $35 membership fee won’t count toward your total for gift certificates (that’s just not fair to everyone who bought them on other days).

So come on in and get a little extra bang for your holiday-shopping buck. Or pick up something for yourself and get some bonus money to give away as gifts. But make sure and stop in for this one-day event!
Boring Rules Stuff:
Just like our regular gift certificates, these have no expiration date, and can be used for anything in the store. We’ll be using these throughout the holiday season. They cannot be used on the day of purchase, but can be used as early as Saturday, November 29th.
The amount used to calculate bonus gift certificates is the pre-tax value of merchandise (within reason – a $24.99 or $24.95 item will get you the $5 gift certificate). $5 is given for each full $25, not a fraction thereof.
We will be closed on Thursday, November 23rd for Thanksgiving. There are no comic shipping delays related to Thanksgiving.
