Game Etiquette

 

Thanks for your interest in games. Here are a few community rules that apply to all players.

 

  1. Have Fun. The whole purpose of playing is to get together with people and share an enjoyable experience.
  2. All Are Welcome. We welcome all community members. If you are interested in a game but have not played before, please contact Alasa to be connected with someone who can show you the ropes.
  3. Be Prompt. Please arrive early. All games start at the times listed. Those who arrive late will have to observe instead of play.
  4. No Bullying, No Grudges and Be Kind. Please treat all players with kindness. If someone needs help, offer tips or assistance and please be patient. We’ve all been new at something one time or another!

Thanks for making VSC a inclusive community for all!

**For private group reservations, please contact Alasa.
