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.

Summer is Warming Up!

We have the entire store stocked full of new items. The expansion is open and we are down for new gamers to join us!  (Ps. We have AC!)

Pokemon Lost Thunder, Final Fantasy Opus VII and More

The end of October will be a busy one at Rune & Board. October 20th we’ll be hosting a Pokémon Lost Thunder prerelease. Lost Thunder will be the largest Pokémon set yet, with over 200 cards, including new GX and Ultra Beasts. Many of the cards have never been printed in English, so it should be an exciting addition. Preregistration starts at 12:00, $25 entry fee with a guarantee of 3 prize packs per person plus additional prizes.

Our Final Fantasy Opus VII prerelease is October 27th, from 3pm to 6pm. Entry fee is $29. Opus VII will be adding cards from Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates, Brave Exvius and Final Fantasy Legends. We’re taking pre-registration now.

That same weekend (October 26th – 28th) is Kumoricon, Portland’s own Anime convention. Rune & Board is sponsoring the D&D Open, so keep an eye out for us around the D&D tables.

Looking towards November, Ravnica Weekend is November 11th. Part of a crossover event for Guilds of Ravnica and the new Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica, we’ll be running a special adventure to go with the launch of the new book as well as 4-pack drafts. If you’re interested in running the adventure in store, please let us know. We’re taking pre-orders now for the Guildmaster’s Guide at $44.95.

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.
