As we come up on 8 months since officially opening, we are getting a better idea of how we need to manage the schedule for events in our play area. We’re going to make some schedule changes, as well changes to table reservations in order to better accommodate everyone.
For the last couple of months we’ve been splitting Tuesdays between Warhammer and Warmachine/Hordes. Starting in September, Warmachine/Hordes will be permanently moved to Wednesday nights, to share the night with the regular Curse of Strahd game. Warhammer 40k will stay on Tuesday nights, sharing space with D&D and tabletop gaming.
Also in September, we’re going to implement a table reservation fee. The fee will be based on the number of chairs (seats) at the table being reserved, and the cost will be $5 per seat. This fee will then become store credit which can be used for snacks & drinks, accessories, games, etc. We decided on this model after observing that the majority of groups reserving tables were already hitting this minimum. Our reasoning behind making this official is that we’ve had a few people request table reservations and then failing to show up. Unfortunately, this resulted in turning people away which is something we try to avoid.
Ixalan Pre-Release is also coming up next month and due to the number of kits we can get, we’re planning on a midnight pre-release Friday. We will know more in the next couple of weeks and will be sure announce dates and times when we do.
