We’ve wrapped up the holidays

and are diving back into organizing our regular gaming events. Here’s a list of everything that we have available for you in the near future.

If you’re interested in Magic: The Gathering, you’re inevitably aware that Gatecrash prereleases in two weeks. We’ll be having 5 separate prerelease events for Gatecrash, Friday the 25th at Midnight, and Saturday and Sunday at noon and 5pm daily. These will all be sealed events using the special prerelease faction packs. Our prerelease tournaments are Swiss Style and our prize support is generous. Preregistration is now open at both the lounge and the shop and all of these events are filling fast.


If you’re interested in Warmachine, our new Press Ganger, Anna, is organizing our first Journeyman League this Thursday.

If you’re into roleplaying, we have a number of options for you, including Dungeons & Dragons Living Forgotten Realms and Fantasy Flight’s new Star Wars: Edge of Empire every Wednesday and Story Games Seattle every Thursday. If you’re even more into roleplaying than that, we have a special monthly Story Games Playtesting event available for you as well.

And if you’re just into board and card games overall (the hottest trend in either right now is Android: Netrunner) we have regular Tuesday night and Sunday afternoon boardgaming events cohosted by the Seattle Alternative Boardgamers and Queer Geek Seattle as well as monthly Ladies Nights with Ashley Cook and Slog Nerdy Happy Hours with your friends over at the Stranger Testing Department.

If you’d like more info about the events we’re hosting on any given week, head over to our recently updated events page and if you have any questions or would like to reserve a table for your own personal gaming event, just send us an email at raygunlounge@gammaraygamestore.com and we’ll get back to you just as soon as we can.

Thanks. And have a great new year.

Wow, what a great year.

And to top it all off, we’re about to hit 1200 fans on facebook. As 1100 of you know and 100 of you are about to learn, every time we get 100 new fans on facebook, we declare Facebook Fan Fantasy Festival Party Time

or FFFFPT as it’s known on the streets

and we give out free stuff.

For this particular FFFFPT we thought we’d celebrate the recent licensing of our new Raygun Lounge by giving out FREE BEER!

Thanks, Dan Becker.

That’s right. As soon as you see us post an appropriate image to our facebook page

say, something tasteful like this

or this

titled It’s FFFFPT 12! you’ll know it’s time to head on down to Gamma Ray Games and pick up your FREE BEER TICKET. While supplies last.

This offer not good on Panther Sweat.

We save that shit for Conan.
