Do I have to be a member to buy stuff?
Nope! The retail section is separate from the Geek Lounge and you do not have be 21 or older nor a member to purchase anything. You are more than welcome to bring in your well behaved children and dogs into the retail section, as long as they are on a leash. The dogs, not the children. Unless you want to leash your children.
Can I special order something?
If we can get our hands on it, we can order it for you. Our curated retail has limited space so we can’t carry everything, but if the game, graphic novel, poster, etc. is available at one of our suppliers, we can usually get it for you pretty quickly.
Do you carry Magic the Gathering?
We don’t currently carry Magic. Neither of us play, and to sell Magic you really need to know the game well. There are multiple stores in town that carry Magic and we can send you in the right direction!
Do you buy or sell used games?
In general we don’t buy or sell used games, however if you have a list of games you would like to sell, send it our direction. If there is a game we would like to put in the library, we may purchase it from you.
We do have a small section of discounted new and retired library games for sale. Once a year we have our Spring Cleaning Sale where we sell a bunch of our retired library copies and allow our members to sell their items.
How do I become a member?
Step one: be 21 or older.
Step two: come into the Geekhouse with your government issued ID.
Step three: give us your name, phone number, email, birthdate and we will scan the barcode on your ID (that becomes your member ID)
Step four: pay the $42 one time sign up fee OR show us a current student ID (we will waive the $42) OR have a current member bring you in to become a member (we will also waive the $42).
Step five: you’re in! You’re a member! It’s just $5 a visit after that and you can now invite other people to become members and we will waive their $42 sign up fee.
Is the Geek Lounge always 21 or older?
Can I bring a guest?
You can bring someone in to become a member and we will waive their $42 one time sign up fee, but everyone who comes into the Geek Lounge must be a member and pay the $5.
Can I bring in my own games?
You can definetly bring in your own games. There are way too many games out there for us to have all of them in our library, so if you have one that you would like to play, bring it in. Just let us know when you come in and we can note it on your tab.
Can I bring in my own food or drinks?
No outside food or drink. We have specifically chosen our snacks to be as non messy as possible and because there are so many restuarants downtown, we suggest grabbing something before you come in. You do have in and out privlages with your $5 entry fee, so if there isn’t anyone on the wait list for your table, you can always take a break, go eat something and come back.
Can I book a table?
Yes you can! And if you have a group and are planning a specific game night, we recommend it. It sucks to have your entire group show up and not be able to get a table.
Can I donate some of my games to the library?
Of course! As long as we don’t have it already, we will put donated games into the library. However, be warned, all games, even donated ones, will be scrutinized for quality, ease of learning, and whether or not there’s a new version if we need to make room for new ones, so it may end up at our Spring Cleaning Sale.
