December/January Update: We Survived 2020!

2020 is almost over we’re still here. A huge THANK YOU to all of our wonderful customers who have supported us throughout this difficult year. I know I keep saying this, but without all of you we wouldn’t be here.

It’s also our 4th anniversary this week. In the past we’ve had a big sale to celebrate, but this year we decided to combine it with our post-Christmas Inventory Reduction Sale. Stay tuned for awesome specials December 26th-31st.

Since 2020 has been a crazy year, we all need some time for Rest & Relaxation to recharge. So, at the beginning of January we will be closed the following days:

  • 1st: New Year’s Day
  • 2nd-3rd: taking inventory
  • 4th-10th: much needed R&R

We will reopen on Monday, January 11th.

Thank you all for your understanding and support throughout the year and into the next.

September Update – THANK YOU; New TCG Pricing Structure

According to the calendar, we’re almost through September. We’ve had a crazy year so far, and have survived thus far. For that we give a huge THANK YOU to all of you, our loyal customers. Without y’all I’m not sure where we would be.

September also brings a change to Magic: the Gathering by introducing a new set to the Standard format, and rotating out 4 older sets. With this rotation we decided it was time to revisit and update our pricing structure, specifically for booster boxes. Instead of setting a flat price that was discounted below what would be full price (if you were to multiply the price of a pack times the packs per box), we will be applying a 20% discount to sealed booster boxes In-Store and Online. This results in slightly lower pricing for you. Additionally, we have also added our TCG pack discount (10% off 3 or more) to our online store. You just need to add 3 or more TCG booster packs to your cart and you’ll see the discount. These discounts will be good for any mix of TCG boosters.

If, for some reason, these discounts aren’t working for you, please let us know.

And once again, THANK YOU for all your support.

R&B Clearance Sale!

rb clearance f-m

There’s a whole slew of new games coming out over the next few weeks, so we need to make room. This means incredible deals for you!

Come in and check out our Clearance Sale – Yellow Tagged items are 30-40% off their original price.

Some minor adjustments

We’ve been open now for a little more than a month. In that time we have realized that we need to make some minor adjustments to schedules.

Beginning this weekend, we will be opening at noon on Saturdays and Sundays instead of 11:00am. We found that no one was coming in before noon and we were struggling to get things done – trips to Costco and other errands which always seem to take longer than expected. There are exceptions to this open time change: events like the Warmachine tournament on February 18th, or other special events.

Magic Draft on Tuesdays will start at 6:30pm so that it will be done closer to our closing time of 9pm.

Snow…snow…GO AWAY!!!

We’ve had more than enough snow and ice in the last few weeks. It’s been great seeing everyone who has ventured out, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone who was unable to do so.

But the good news is it looks like things will continue to clear up over the next few days which means we can get back to hosting our full scheduled of events, including some extra events for the new Magic the Gathering release:



Of course, if Magic’s not your thing, we also have D&D, Star Wars Destiny, Numenera Organized Play, and Gundam Builders. Be sure to check our Events page for day and time. You can also find our events on our Facebook page: @runeandboard

Hope to see you all soon!

Happy New Year!

We’re officially in the new year and looking forward to building our new business. Since opening not quite 3 weeks ago we’ve had many people stopping by to welcome us to Hillsboro and check out what who we are and what we do. So far the feedback we’ve gotten has been great.

We are continuing to fill in our calendar with events, and our shelves with new games, accessories, and supplies. One thing I didn’t anticipate was how much stuff would be sold out at our vendors this time of year. Fortunately, many things are coming back into stock and should be arriving at our doorstep very soon.

For events, most of what we have up are for Magic and D&D but we also want to fill in with other games. So, if there are any games you’d like to see supported, feel free to message on Facebook or email us at

Hope to see you soon!

More stuff coming in!

We have more stuff coming in today, including more kids games and classic games.

We’ll be open normal business hours – 2pm-9pm – so stop on by if you’re in the area!

Our hours tomorrow – Christmas Eve – will be shortened to 11am-5pm.

If we don’t see you before, have a safe and happy holiday!

I Assure You, We’re Open!

Yes, that’s right, we are OPEN!

And we’ve already put our first D&D event on the schedule for Wednesday, December 28th at 6:30pm. Additional events will be added over the next couple of days, so be sure to check our page often.

We will be open for our normal business hours on December 22nd and 23rd, but will most likely close early on the 24th. And we will be closed on Christmas Day.

We are also tossing around ideas for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day and events.

Scheduling events….

As we get closer to officially opening we are receiving more inquiries about what events we’ll have. Primarily questions about Magic and D&D, but others, as well. The following is a tentative schedule of weekly events. Please let us know what you think.

  • Monday: closed
  • Tuesday: Magic “cheap” draft / D&D AL
  • Wednesday: D&D AL / Magic Modern constructed
  • Thursday: Magic EDH (Commander)
  • Friday: Magic draft
  • Saturday: Magic Standard / D&D AL (every other week)
  • Sunday: Pokemon open play / Magic rotating format (2HG, sealed, constructed, EDH, etc.)

One advantage we have is space for ~50 people playing games at any one time, so even if there are events going there’s a good chance you can find a place to sit and play something from our games library (which will grow with time), or something you bring in to share.

I also want to find time slots for Warhammer and other miniatures games since we had an awesome table made (it’s 4×6!) specifically for miniatures gaming. Plus, our conference tables are big enough for many of the games.

Are there any games you’d like to see featured on our calendar? Please let us know!
