Supplies are limited, we suggest getting there early to get the best selection of free games!

We’ll have volunteer DMs running a variety of games on the day! Walk-ins are welcome, although we encourage you to sign up early so we can know we’ve got enough interest and to make sure you’ve got a spot at the table! Please note that the evening games might run a little more on the mature side, particularly Monsterhearts. We’ll have sign-up sheets available in-store!

12 PM-4 PM:

FATE: Smoghaven (Rated PG)
A lawless city plagued by grotesque beasts, corrupt officials, and arcane sorcery. Your gang stays alive though the sharpness of your tongues, wits, and dagger blades.

Dungeons & Dragons (Rated PG)
A session of Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition for new players. Pregenerated characters will be available. [4 players]

The Good, The Bad, and The Undead (Rated PG)
Welcome to the Real Wild West, not the west of the history books but the west that actually was. The truth before the world was civilized and the government made all the facts disappear like smoke on the breeze. The time when people had far more to fear in the night then other people. This isn’t how the West was Won, this is how the West was Weird. Powered by the Apocalypse written by Austin Locals Mark Nau & Terra Chirieleison. No knowledge of the system is necessary, beginners very welcome, Horror and Mature themes. Characters will be quickly created. [5 players]

5 PM-9 PM:

FATE: Altered Carbon (Rated PG-13)

An unlikely alliance of Protectorate, police, and gangsters put their differences aside to quell the deadly new threat. No knowledge of FATE or the Altered Carbon series is necessary, beginners very welcome, mature themes. [5 players]

Monsterhearts (Rated R)
Once Upon a Times are for suckers. Welcome to the other side of the fairy & old wives tales, the Monster’s side. This is dancing in the dark with all the drama of a High School Prom night. Monsterhearts is anything but typical; ranging from Scooby & the gang to Buffy including all points in between and beyond. No knowledge of the system is necessary, beginners very welcome, Horror & Mature Themes. 18+ for content Characters will be quickly created. [5 players]

Kids on Bikes (Rated PG)
Take on the roles of everyday people grappling with strange, terrifying, and very, very powerful forces that they cannot defeat, control, or even fully understand. Create a communally controlled Powered Character to add another dimension of gameplay to your games! [5 players]

Rogues Gallery will be holding a prerelease for Modern Horizons, the first Magic set to skip Standard altogether and go right to Modern format! Those participating will have the first chance to buy the Modern Horizons set before it goes on sale on June 14th (complete with special buy a box card) and anyone participating in the prerelease will get a special promo card.

Space, as always, is limited, so we recommend signing up early to make sure you get a space! We can fit up to 24 players, but we expect to only have enough promo cards for the first 16 people at the tournament. Players will buy six Modern Horizons boosters (buy-in cost $50+tax) to use in a sealed deck tournament and will get a copy of the promo card (which cannot be used in the tournament). Players will need to be at the store by 12:15 to sign in, and we highly recommend calling or emailing now to get on the list and make sure you get one of the promo cards. At 12:15 we’ll clear the preregistered list and allow walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To sum up:
1. Call or email us *now* to get on the prerelease list.
2. Come in by 12:15 on Sunday, June 9th to claim your spot and your promo card (which can’t be played in tournament.)
3. We may have room for walk-ins but we can’t guarantee it.

Releasing June 14, Modern Horizons contains 249 new-to-Modern cards (254 total), with a mix of reprints not yet legal in Modern, and new cards that celebrate both Modern and Magic’s rich history.

Rogues Gallery will be running prerelease events for the new Magic set on Saturday *and* Sunday! We’ll be holding four events in total for Core 2020, one on Friday, July 5th, Saturday, July 6th, and two on Sunday, July 7th! We’ll have enough product and space for 24 players at each event. Even with the expanded tournaments, we expect space to fill up fast, so we recommend pre-registering, we can’t guarantee a spot for walk-ins, and we’ll only have enough prerelease product to support 72 players total! PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL NOW TO PRE-REGISTER TO GUARANTEE A SPOT!

You can call ahead or email to sign up starting now! If space allows, we are happy to allow players to play in multiple prerelease tournaments… players will have to buy-in to each tournament separately, and cannot carry cards or decks over from any of the other tournaments. In addition, we occasionally have no-shows, so if you don’t get in on your preferred time, you are welcome to sign up as an alternate or to come in on the day and try to get available spaces.

Each tournament will run three rounds, and should last about three and a half hours

Friday Evening Tournament 6 PM – 10 PM (Sign-in from 6 PM-6:20 PM, deck construction from 6:30-7, play from 7-10)
Saturday Evening Tournament 5 PM – 9 PM (Sign-in from at 5 PM-5:20 PM, deck construction from 5:30-6, play from 6-9)
Sunday Early Tournament 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM (Sign in from 12 PM-12:20 PM, deck construction from 12:30-1, play from 1-4)
Sunday Late Tournament 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM (Sign in from 4 PM-4:20 PM, deck construction from 4:30-5, play from 5-8)

Please note for those preregistered, you must arrive at least 10 minutes before deck construction begins to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.

Prerelease packs will be $25.99 plus tax. As always, because of the need to get tournaments in before we close, we apologize that we won’t be able to offer trading or casual place space after the tournaments end.

Winners of each round will earn a Core 2020 booster, and the remainder of our boosters will be divided into first, second, and third prizes at the end of each tournament.

In addition to the main prerelease tournament events, we will have a limited number of Planeswalker decks and booster boxes for sale on prerelease weekend! You can special order a booster box ahead of time or buy on the day if we have any left once preorders are taken care of. Be among the first to get a look at Core 2020 during prerelease weekend!

Please be courteous to your other players. While circumstances can come up, we ask that players do their best to not drop out of the tournament until all three rounds are completed. Players who drop from the tournament early may lose the ability to preregister for future tournaments.

Rogues Gallery will be hosting artist Sam Lotfi on Wednesday, May 15th from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM to celebrate the release of his new comic, Last Stop on the Red Line #1! He’ll be signing copies of the book as well as doing quick sketches for fans.

Last Stop on the Red Line is a horrific murder mystery from Dark Horse Comics by Paul Maybury and Sam Lotfi.  Detective Migdalia Torres investigates a vicious strangling on a Boston subway car with no feasible leads. As potential evidence produces dead ends, Migdalia inadvertently takes in a vagrant named Yusef who may have a supernatural connection to the crime at hand.

Come out on Wednesday the 15th to get a signed comic and a quick sketch!
