September Events and News

Time for a round up of what’s going on at Rune & Board this September! We’re returning to Rose City Comic Con this year and will be near where we were last year, between Artist Alley and Rose City Jr. Find us in booth #1050 – we’re handing out discount cards good for purchases in store, so be sure to stop by.

A new D&D book is coming in September: Baldur’s Gate: Descent to Avernus will be available Sept 17, and we’re taking pre-orders for the alternate cover. This is a new campaign book that takes characters from level 1-13 as they travel through Avernus, the first level of Hell. It’s the first campaign book to take place in fan-favorite Baldur’s Gate so we’re hoping it provides more detail for the city itself for future adventures.

We’re gearing up for the next Magic: the Gathering pre-release later this month. Throne of Eldrane is inspired by fairy tales and Arthurian legends, with lots of us hoping for more fairies. We’ll be running pre-release events Sept 27, 28, and 29. Keep an eye on our calendar or Facebook page for details and times.

Earlier this year we started selling Cardfight!! Vanguard, a Japanese card game based on an anime and manga series, and so have added open play on Sundays to our calendar, starting Sept 22. If you have played YuGiOh or Pokemon, you may like Cardfight!! Players start with a pre-constructed deck and can add new cards with additional booster packs so it’s easy to get started.

Pathfinder-Core-Rulebook

Our continuing events include Open Play for the A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game on Friday nights, along with our regular FNM Standard and Draft events. If you play M:tG Pauper, we have casual tournaments Tuesdays, with $3 to join the event, and packs going to 1st and 2nd place. And with the release of Pathfinder Second Edition, we have occasional events posted on our Warhorn page. Hopefully with increased interest, we’ll have more events in the future.

Updated Hours and Guilds of Ravnica PreRelease

With the days getting shorter, we’ve moved to slightly different hours on Friday and Saturday nights. We’re now open until 10pm on Fridays and 8pm on Saturdays. The rest of the days of the week will remain unchanged.

This weekend is prerelease for Guilds of Ravnica, the next set for Magic: the Gathering. We have events scheduled for Friday midnight, Saturday at 10:30am and 5:30pm and Two-Headed Giant 12pm on Sunday. There’s a limited number of booster boxes still available for pre-order, with pick up on Prerelease weekend.

If you’re looking for RPGs, we’ve started posting our public games on Warhorn.net. As always, D&D Adventurers League is still on Meetup.com but due to changes in Adventurers League rules, some of our DMs decided to take their games “free range”. We moved to Warhorn so that we could still offer public games without relying on Meetup, so now we can post games that are not D&D, such as Shadowrun and Warhammer, or other events like 40K tournaments.

We’re offering gift cards with a reloadable balance, but if you have a gift certificate, don’t worry as they’re still valid for any remaining balance.

September Events!

Rune & Board will be at Rose City Comic-con this year, not as attendees but as a vendor! Stop by our booth at 1050 if you’re going — we’ll have coupons on hand and great deals on dice and minis.

After Rose City, the next campaign book for D&D will be released September 18th (but we’ll have it on September 7th!). Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is a campaign designed for characters level 1-5. The buzz is that it will be really good, so be sure to reserve a copy. We’re taking pre-orders now for $44.95 (regular price $49.95). Dragon Heist will have a follow up release in November — Dungeon of the Mad Mage will be for characters level 5-20.

Rounding out September, the next Magic: the Gathering set, Guilds of Ravnica, prerelease will be September 29th & 30th. Following the story from Ixalan, the Gatewatch return to Ravnica to finally battle Nicol Bolas. Will they emerge victorious or will Nicol Bolas’ nefarious plan finally succeed? And in case you haven’t heard, there will be a Ravnica sourcebook for D&D 5e, too! That will be released in November so keep an eye out for more info in the coming months.

Regarding events, we added an additional Pokemon League day – every Wednesday from 2pm to 5pm. The pre-release for Lost Thunder will be in October so we’ll have more information then.

 

 

July Events – Magic Pre-Release and More!

July will be a busy month for CCG players – Rune & Board is hosting 3 pre-releases next month!

Taking advantage of the holiday, we’ll be open until 7pm on July 4th, running a Warmachine Scramble event (starting at 1pm). $5 entry for each 4-person mini tournament. The plan is to run them on-demand, as soon as there’s 4 players. Prize support is $20 store credit to the winning player. Before 5:00pm you can use a 75 point army, single list; after 5:00pm: 50 point army, single list.

First pre-release this month is the Magic: the Gathering Core Set 2019. We’re planning on running a midnight event again, plus 2 on Saturday. Sunday’s event will be 2-Headed Giant. Pre-register now for your spot Friday or Saturday $25. 2HG teams can pre-register for $50. Pre-registration ends on Friday, July 6th at 10pm. Check out Facebook or Instagram for more details on our specials.

We’re also running a Final Fantasy TCG Opus VI pre-release Sunday July 8th, at 5pm. Pre-registration is open now, $30 to guarantee your spot! Entry will be $35 day-of.

Last, we have a Pokemon pre-release for Sun & Moon Celestial Storm on Saturday, July 28th. We’ll start taking sign ups on July 7th. $30 entry fee will get you a special pre-release kit, with prizes for all players.
