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 runeandboard@gmail.com

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!

Getting everything in its right place

We spent most of today picking up fixtures (shelves, etc.) and setting them up while also working on the overall layout of the store. Tomorrow will be more of the same. It really is coming together nicely. We hope you’re all as pleased with the result as we are.

The only thing holding us back at this point is the electrical (receptacles and light fixtures) which should be completed on Tuesday, December 13th. This would have been done by now, but winter weather got in the way.

Once the electrical is done we will bring in the merchandise that has been piling up in our garage (and spilling over into our house!) and be open for business!!

In the meantime, we will be hosting our 2nd Game Night at McNally’s Taproom on Monday, December 12th. Please come down, buy a drink, and play some games with us. We’re looking forward to meeting everyone.

Soon….very, very soon….

Progress is being made. It now feels like things really are moving right along.

  • The paint is done*
  • The contractor is nearly done with his stuff
  • The carpet is getting installed today and tomorrow

Once that is done, we will be moving things in and setting up.

More product has arrived, with more rolling in later this week.

Stay tuned for more!

* Aside from a few touch-ups here and there that will get done….someday?
