Woohoo! It is official!

We just signed the lease on the new RPG Research property today!

Paid, and have the keys.

It is a very significant "fixer-upper", but it is ours at last! ~3,000 square feet between the two buildings, plus the rest of the lot. When we have the money we also have the option to buy!

We'll still be receiving mail at our old location for a few months during this transition: 1312 North Monroe Street, Suite 114, Spokane 99201.

Thank you for your wonderful volunteering, donations, and support helping make this all possible!

The downstairs facility will be fully wheelchair accessible, including the restroom.

In addition to the general public for all ages, we will also strive to provide spaces and adaptive accessibility equipment for:

  1. Deaf and Hard of Hearing
  2. Blind and VI
  3. Adaptive equipment for those with grasping disabilities
  4. Safe areas for very young gamers with their parents
  5. Quiet times/spaces for senior adults
  6. At-risk populations
  7. Autism spectrum
  8. and more!


It will probably be a few months before we can open the door to the public as we prepare the space for be friendly and accessible. Stay tuned for updates!

It will take us a few months to finish preparing the space for public use.

We especially emphasize accessibility in games, and we have adaptive equipment for many.

We also actively encourage Deaf/VI and Blind/HoH community, Autism spectrum, senior adults, and many others to come benefit from cooperative tabletop games and music.

We are so excited to be opening up this space to the community as soon a possible.

We are going to need plenty of help from the community with donated supplies, services, and funds to help us finish this fixer-upper.

We'll be posting a wish list (based on the inspector's lists) online in coming days.

We are 100% volunteer run, and so glad to be able to server the greater Spokane community.

The new location is at 101 North Stone Street.



Just 1 block north of Sprague and the Vanessa Behan building. (the old Pacific Metals building is what we've acquired).
