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.

Game Library:

We have 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!

Gaming with Rogues – King of Tokyo

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 July 22nd, and we’ll be hosting King of Tokyo as part of Iello’s Organized Play program! Play mutant monsters, gigantic robots and other monstrous creatures, rampaging the city and vying for position as the one and only King of Tokyo! Combine your dice to gather energy, heal your monster or just slap the other monsters down! Spend your energy to trigger permanent or one-shot special powers: a second head, body armor, nova death ray… Stop at nothing to become the King of Tokyo… but that’s when the real trouble begins for you!

Everyone who plays will get a free Fish Market card, two players will win Broken Token Lightning energy packs, and one lucky winner will walk away with Rozy Pony, the Kaiju Pony of Doom! Plus, the winner will be eligible to play in the King of Tokyo Nationals in 2018!

So whether you’ve played King of Tokyo 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 King of Tokyo, King of New York, or any of the expansions from now until the end of March!

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!

Cypher System – Predation Demo

Come out for a demo of the Cypher System game Predation on Saturday, August 5th from 11 AM – 1 PM!

Welcome to the Cretaceous. Our ancestors won’t climb down from the trees for another 66 million years, but here we are now. Time travel seemed like a good idea. Exploring the ancient world. Building. Creating an entire society here in the jungles of our primordial Earth. Until those SATI guys messed it all up. We’ve got gear. We’ve got guns. We’ve even bioengineered a few dinos to our liking. And that’s good, because we’ll need it all to survive. History says there’s an asteroid headed our way, and there’s no one left alive who knows how to get back to the future.

Predation includes:

  • A complete, ready-to-play science-fiction game world for the Cypher System, with a detailed history, scores of fascinating locations, new gear and technologies, and a variety of factions and conflicts to drive your story.
  • More than 20 new creatures and NPC types, from the snuggly nerezza to the unpredictable lab-grown supersauri. Encounter teslasaurs, cyberdrones, and genetically engineered spiders, plus dinosaurs of all descriptions.
  • New character types and abilities. Be a Volcanic Karn who Self-Evolves, an Empirical Tec who Plays God, or perhaps a Daring Pteryx Who Walks with Dinosaurs.
  • Rules for dinosaur companions. Choose a ceratopsian, pterosaur, early mammal, ornithomimid—even a raptor or tyrannosaur. You’ll want the help and companionship as you explore the dangerous wilds of Cretaceous Grevakc!”

Players do not need to bring anything but enthusiasm!

Magic the Gathering Prerelease in July

3bzfugobsnFIRST 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, Hour of Devastation, on Sunday, July 9th! 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 July 9th. 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 Hour of Devastation 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 Hour of Devastation Planeswalker Decks to play against each other, as well as prerelease tournament players who are between matches.
