Details: HTG is a small Hole in the wall, mom and pop type shops that sells games and offers a fun place to explore new games. Our family enjoys attending a event here and there and  adding strategy games to our board game collection.

Pokémon League is a fun and accessible way for Pokémon fans to get together and have some fun! League events are open to all Pokémon TCG players regardless of experience level or skill. Using your own cards, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do.

At High Tide Games, we run our league as a “Stamp Card” league. When you come in to play, you’ll get a league card with rows to fill up. Each time you play a game during league, you’ll earn a single stamp. If you win the game, you’ll earn an additional stamp. Once you fill up the first row, you’ll earn a League Promo card. The second row earns you a booster pack, the third row another promo, and when you complete all 4 rows you’ll earn a Gym Badge! (*note: only one row can be filled each week) It’s free to play in our weekly League and we even have staff that can help you build a deck to get started. Show up as early as possible on Sunday so you can get the help you need and still have time to play games.

MLK Days 2019

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Each year, we invite a different artist to develop and lead a meaningful three-day project that results in an installation, which typically remains on display through the end of February.

Her work celebrates the spiritual foundation and family values of the time. Meet the artist, hear her recollections, and work alongside her during the 3-day MLK DAYS community art project!

In addition to the community art project, guests can also enjoy:
