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!

Game/Graphic Novel of the Month: May

Every month, we make a game of the month and graphic novel of the month selection. Each month on the third Saturday, we’ll play the game in the store in our Gaming with Rogues event!

In addition, the graphic novel of the month will be 15% off. Rogue Card holders will get an additional 10% off on the graphic novel of the month and on the game of the month!

This month’s selections:

coltexpressColt Express:
Colt Express is a board game of schemin’ and stealin’ for two to six bandits aboard a three-dimensional steam train. You play as one of a group of ruthless bandits, dead set on grabbing as much loot and shooting as many bullets at your former companions as possible. Every round, you must determine what actions your bandit will take, whether you’re grabbing loot, firing bullets, punching another bandit, or running along the roof of the train car. If you can predict what your opponents will do, you can respond to their actions and stay one step ahead, but if you’re knocked off-track, you’ll find your shots flying wide. Only the richest bandit can claim victory on the Colt Express when the train pulls into the station!

There are a variety to choose from, including the run by Brian Michael Bendis, the Rocket & Groot series, and separate volumes including Rocket or Groot!
