June 1st Update – In Store Play

Many of you have been asking about when we’ll start hosting events now that Phase 1 of reopening has begun. We know you’re excited to get back in for regular games and we are excited to have you come in for games. But, in an effort to maintain a safe, healthy environment, we will be taking it slow. Beginning Wednesday, June 3rd, we will be allowing private groups of 2-6 to reserve tables. To reserve a table, you can either call: 503-521-7610, or email: runeandboard@gmail.com. A $5 per player minimum purchase will be required.

To maintain a safe, healthy environment for everyone, the following rules must be obeyed:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly before your game(s) begin. There are guides posted in each restroom that show proper hand washing techniques.
  2. Wash/sanitize your hands frequently while gaming. If you can’t remember how long it has been since you last did so, it’s time to do it again.
  3. No outside food or drink whatsoever. In the past we have made exceptions, but now the only exception is a resealable water bottle for personal use.
  4. Maintain 6 feet of social distancing between gaming groups at all times. We will be arranging tables to allow for this.
  5. Face masks must be worn. If you don’t have a face mask, we can provide you with a disposable one.
  6. Clean up after yourself. Dispose of any trash or bottles and cans during and after your gaming session. We will sanitize the tables and chairs between groups.
  7. If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or flu-like symptoms, DO NOT COME IN.

In addition to these rules, it is also imperative that each person be fully aware of their surroundings and how close they are to others. If you are within 6 feet of someone who is not part of your private group, you will need to move. Because of traffic flow, this will require coordination and cooperation between groups.

If all goes well, we will consider expanding our temporary hours to allow for more reservations.

Please remember, we’re in this together, and only together can we maintain a safe, healthy environment for everyone.

April Update & Publisher Profit Sharing

Good news: We’re still open for business, although in a limited fashion. Customers are strongly encouraged to order over the phone or from our e-commerce page and select In-Store/Curbside Pickup. We have been uploading more of our inventory everyday, but still have a long way to go, so check back often.

More good news: Many of the game publishers have set up profit sharing programs to help out local game stores. In most cases all you need to do is include our name when ordering directly from them and we’ll get a cut of the profits. This is a Win-Win-Win for customers, game stores, and publishers, especially since many games have been difficult to get since several of our distributors are either closed or utilising a skeleton crew in their warehouses.  Here’s a list of the publishers who are helping us all out:

Arcane Wonders

Drawlab Entertainment

Fireside Games

Fog of Love

Forbidden Games

Gate Keeper Games

Grand Gamers Guild

Greenbrier Games

Hub Games

Now for bad news: It’s a tough time right now for everybody. Many businesses are closed; many people are out of work. But, we can all work together to make things better, so let’s do our best to be supportive of one another. And once we’re past all this, LET’S GAME!
