We do things a bit differently here at Modern Games and that naturally leads to some questions. We'll try to answer as many as we can here, but if we miss something please give us a call at 541-639-8121 or email [email protected].
So, really how does it work?
We have a calendar of weekly and special events and anytime an event is not scheduled we offer open play to drop in with your group and play some games. First, check in at the counter to see what's available, then register for an event or be assigned a table for open play. Unless noted otherwise, we charge a $5 per person library fee to play games in the game room. Order drinks or snacks at the counter and we'll bring them over to you so you can get back to your game.
Can you recommend games to play or teach me how to play?
We are always happy to offer recommendations, and are happy to assist in learning a new game, assuming the staff is available and familiar with the game.
Are children welcome?
Yes of course! We are a family-friendly kind of place to get out of the house and enjoy some games together. We do ask that kids 12 and under are accompanied by their favorite game-playing adult.
Can I turn up by myself and find people to play with?
Depending on the game(s) you enjoy, we have a night to meet others who enjoy it also. Board Game Social Club is a great chance to meet other board gamers. Wargaming Wednesday, Commander and Coffee, and Organized DnD Sundays are other great opportunities to find your people.
Is it okay to leave and come back later?
We are very flexible, but space is also limited. If you are gone for a short break, and there is room, we are happy to welcome you back.
What games do you have?
Many! Currently there’s about 200 games in the library from old favorites to new releases, and we're still growing. Here's a list of our current collection.
Can I bring my own game?
You are more than welcome to bring your own games, however the library fee still applies.
What about my own food and drink?
Unfortunately, we don’t allow outside food and drink in our game room.
What about miniatures games?
Our Wargaming Wednesday is a great opportunity to meet our Community Organizers, and other players. You are also welcome to come in for a game any time we have room, and no other event scheduled. We offer terrain and mats available for miniatures players. Miniatures games are a $10 charge, which allows us to continue to buy more terrain and pay the local artists we commission to paint and assemble it.
Can I make a reservation or host a private event in your space?
No, we don’t currently take reservations nor do we host private events. We're a small shop with limited resources and we want to keep the game room as open as possible so that everyone gets a chance to play some games.
Can I bring a large group in to play games?
Because seating is very limited, we can only host a maximum of 1 group of up to 10 people if the tables are free and only during open play.
Do you accept game donations?
We do not, we do however offer our Used Game section, where you can sell unwanted games for store credit.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
Absolutely. There are disabled parking spaces right outside, no steps to navigate, and our bathroom is ADA compliant.
