When choosing a game you may pick from any game in the library or bring one of your own. If you need help choosing feel free to ask for suggestions or for a demonstration of how the rules work.

Role Playing Games
Role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons can be a very fun experience. If you want to book a table for an RPG it is booked in the usual way. With some advanced notice, the store can provide props that can help immersion such as dungeon furniture, miniatures or tabletop scenery.
There is a library of games available for customers to play. Booking for a board game again follows the same process outlined above. When booking for a board game please check for availability. With some notice the game may be set up in advance of your arrival. Many games such as Dungeon Saga or Zombicide have linked scenarios, or characters that improve or gain better equipment. For your better enjoyment records may be by save-game gremlin. Therefore if playing weekly for example you may resume play from exactly where you left the game.
The store has a number of different sized boards, mats and terrain for different environments. When booking for one of these a number of articles can be provided such as dice, miniatures and markers. Currently the store can support 28mm – 32mm modern apocalyptic, sci-fi & fantasy, or starship based encounters.
Tournaments & Special Events
On certain days the store will be running a gaming event such as a painting competition or tournament. Typically their will be an associated cost (members may pay less) and a list of rules to follow. It is usually not possible to book a table to play any other game when a gaming event is being run.
Many manufacturers of games supply bricks and mortar stores with “Organised Play Kits”. These usually take the form of rare and limited edition game components or other items not on general release. This means you can get a prize that can be used in your next game. They can usually only obtained by playing at your local gaming store.
