How does “Open Gaming” work?
Just like it sounds! An Open Gaming ticket will get you a seat in our event space as well as access to the entire Game Library for the day.
Yep, your ticket is good until we close up, even if you leave for a break or a bite and come back later.

Available Monday through Thursday, 11AM-7PM
Because we host organized events Friday through Sunday, Open Gaming is not available on weekends.

Our current weekday store hours are 11:00AM – 7:00PM. Open Gaming is available anytime when we have open tables.

How much does it cost?
Open Gaming tickets are $5 per player–and you get 750 MVP points alongside your ticket!

Each player must have their own individual MVP Club account.

Call Ahead!
If you want to be sure there are tables available, or if you’re planning to stop in with more than six players, we suggest calling ahead to verify that there’s space.

Bringing your Own Games?
That’s great! Feel free to break out your favorites from home. We just ask that you let us know what you’re bringing when you arrive—that way we know what you’re leaving with as well.
