Hello everyone! We’ll be closed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January for inventory and will be re-opening on the 4th at 4pm. Commander Night will continue as planned!
We’re glad to announce that we’ve received approval for an official Pokémon League! The new season starts December 2nd, from 1pm to 3pm. We’ll have materials for 10 players so if you or your children are interested, come in and sign up!
Pokémon League is for players of all ages and all skill levels. We’re planning on running a Pokémon standard league, so only sets from XY – BREAKthrough and on will be allowed.
Hope to see you there!
We’d like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully, like us, you’re enjoying a day off, gathering with friends and family. And also like us, there’s a good chance you’re resting up for….
To show our appreciation for all of our customers, many of whom are quickly becoming like family, we’ll be opening up a couple hours early (but still late enough to sleep in 😺) and offering what we feel are some some pretty awesome deals:
In addition to this, we’ll also have several other random specials, as well as events planned throughout the weekend: Magic Win-a-Box, FNM* Draft & Modern, Final Fantasy TCG Opus IV Prerelease, D&D Adventurer’s League**, and Saturday Game Night.
With this being our first Black Friday we’re not quite sure what to expect. So, please bear with us in this. We’re working to make it great for everyone.
*each with the top prize of From the Vault: Transform!
**please RSVP here: https://www.meetup.com/dndaloregon/events/
We are 1 of 2 stores in Oregon chosen to host the Final Fantasy TCG: Opus IV Prerelease. Here are the details:

This will be a casual event to encourage open play.
Along with the prerelease kits, we will also have several promo cards from previous sets to pass out.
In case you don’t know about this great new game, or you’ve been curious and want to learn more, we will be hosting a Build & Battle event on Saturday, November 11th from 2pm – 5pm. This event is free and we should have enough materials for at least 20 players.
Our first Ixalan League has come to an end. Prizes go to:
Nate K. – Rivals of Ixalan Prerelease entry

Kabrin – Deck box of your choice
We’ll have another Ixalan League starting on November 7th! We’ll have a new list of prizes and achievements for participants soon.
We’ll be closing early after the Ixalan Sealed event this Saturday so that we can volunteer at IMoGaP’s THRAG. Nick will be running a Magic draft (all money goes to IMoGaP) and Sadie will be running a D&D session. We’ve also donated several games that will be raffled off to help support them.
What is THRAG? Check it out!
We hope to see you there!
Rune & Board has a team for Extra Life 2017 and so we decided to convert one of our popular EDH/Commander Nights into a fundraiser.
Between now and October 19th, go to our Extra Life page and use the Donate button. For every $5 you donate, you get 1 raffle ticket AND 1 waiver for Commander tax during the event. Donate $25 and you get 5 raffle tickets AND a waiver for Commander tax the entire night!
Don’t want to donate online, or maybe you decide too late “Hey, I do need that waiver”? Donate in store to our big bucket and you’ll still get a raffle ticket and waiver for every $5 you donate.
During the event we’ll raffle off some cool prizes for every $50 donated, up to a maximum of $500.
Don’t donate anonymously or we won’t know who you are.
If you’ve already signed up for Extra Life, you can join our team. With your contributions, you’ll still get raffle tickets and Commander tax waivers!
We are part of the larger Wizards of the Coast Extra Life Super Team.
There’s a new Magic set so that means Magic League will be starting soon. We changed league days to Sunday this block, with league running the 4 weeks between October 1st and October 22nd. As always, you can come in any day we’re open and play games. Sign up starts this week and you can pick up your league kit on Sunday, October 1st.
For $20 you get 3 packs, a special promo card, a storage box and a match card. With your 3 starting packs, you’ll build a 30 card (minimum) deck. Record your cards and start playing! You can join the league at any time by buying packs to catch up.
You can buy a new booster pack each week AND after losing 3 matches. Matches are best out of 1. Record your matches on your match card and at the end of 4 weeks we’ll award prizes for the following:
Highest Win Percentage*: 1st and 2nd place
Most total wins: 1st place
Most total losses: 1st place
Most Games Played: 1st place
All players get a special promo card, while supplies last.
Like last season, we need a minimum of 8 players for prize payout. With more players, we’ll add more prizes. Each week we’ll have an achievement or two posted on our Facebook page so be sure to follow us. On Sundays, we’ll award prizes for that week’s achievement.
See additional rules and info on our Magic: the Gathering page.
*must play at least 10 games to qualify

Everyone had so much fun with Hour of Devastation League, we’ve signed up to run it for Ixalan.

September is a busy month, with a new D&D book, a Magic release, new Star Wars: Destiny and the start of a new Warmachine league.
We will have Tomb of Annihilation, the new D&D book, available Friday, September 8th. As a Wizards of the Coast retailer, we have the book available 2 weeks early. The new Adventurers League season accompanying the book has an interesting spin: “The death curse”. You can read more about it in the Adventurers League Primer.
We’ll have a limited number of boxes for Star Wars: Destiny Empire at War available September 15th for $99.
Our next build and paint event will be September 17th, from 3pm to 6pm. We’ll be featuring miniatures from Games Workshop, with a range of 40k and Age of Sigmar models available to assemble and paint. Already have something you’re working on? Bring it in and take advantage our our paints and tools!
Ixalan pre-releases have been scheduled for the weekend of September 23rd. We’re hosting our first ever midnight pre-release, as well as events Saturday morning, Saturday evening, Sunday morning and Two-Headed Giant Sunday afternoon. $24 if you pre-register and pay in advance, $28 day of the event.
Adding to our regular Wednesday Warmachine events, we’re starting a Journeyman League for new Warmachine and Hordes players on the 27th. Starting out with a Battlebox, players will gradually add to their army until they have a 75-point army. We’ll have more information available later in the month, so keep an eye on our Facebook page or our event schedule for more info.
Rounding out the month, we will be doing a learn and play for Sea of Clouds on September 30th. Participants will have an opportunity to win a special promo captain and a chance to buy a copy of the game at a discount. It’s a fun, easy to learn game that’s good for mixed age groups.
