Cock & Bull Monthly Tournament

Our second monthly tournament will be on Wednesday, February 19th, from 6:30-9:30 pm. Join us (and the creator!) in this fun, two player pub game. There will be a double elimination bracket, and the winner will get a free 1-Month Membership and their name engraved on a copper trophy mug!

D&D One Shots

Join us on Thursday evenings for D&D one shots! Events are limited to 8 people, and will be run by Patrick the DM. Don't worry about dice or characters, all of that will be supplied. All you have to do is bring your imagination! Sessions will be run from 5-9 every Thursday.

Red Dot Sundays is a weekly meet-up to play some of the more involved and heavier games. These games take a while longer to learn and play, and are more strategic than some other games. We'll be playing a new game each Sunday from 11 am - 3 pm, and spots will be limited so make sure you check each week for what game we'll be playing!

Buy 1 day pass, get 1 day pass for free! Every Tuesday, if you purchase a ticket to enter, you'll get an additional ticket for free, which you can then give to your family or friends! Free tickets acquired on 2 Day Tuesday must be redeemed within a week, and may be used the same evening as the purchase.

More About Us

We are a Family owned San Diego business,  focused solely on Table Top and Role Playing games and the community around them.  We have been playing board games as a family for many years and want to share that experience with others. We decided to create a place where everyone is welcomed to come and grab a game off the shelf and play!

For a nominal fee of $7 per day (or less if you are a member), you can enjoy our ever growing selection of over 600 board games. That’s less than a movie ticket, and is way more fun!!! We have a fun, friendly and knowledgeable staff that will help you find the right type of game that you may be looking to play.  We also have weekly, and monthly events, plus other fun activities centering around Tabletop games. We look forward to seeing you at the Table!

Our family’s first 10 games that got us into board gaming, and eventually led to this store!
