What we're about

Crossroads Tabletop Tavern is a home away from home for tabletop gamers of all kinds...and to the gamer in everyone!
We provide a clean, comfy space for people to face each other over a friendly game of...(fill in the blank), along with great food and ample drink.
We welcome:
- Players of old school cards, chess and go, bridge and mah-jongg, euchre and canasta, dominoes and backgammon.
- Modern game hobbyists are welcome, to play anything from the gateways of Catan and Ticket to Ride to Epic slogs through Twilight Imperium or Advanced Civilization (well, on the off days you can play these) to the current hotness of Cascadia and Ark Nova!
- "Muggles" are not only welcome, they are encouraged to come! This is the place where people who think they aren't gamers find out that they are gamers! This is where you gamers might be able to convince your stodgy parents to try out something new.
- Groups are welcome; we have hosted numerous catered events (birthdays, corporate outings, ladies night out, etc) and can accommodate up to 50 at once
- Date night happens here ALL THE TIME, and so does Family Game Night, and so does every sort of permutation of friends and family over every type of game.
We have:
- a library of over 2,000+ games available for paying customers to play (old and new)
- a full game shop; all requests are honored
- a full service restaurant (we are a scratch kitchen and source locally!)
- a full bar featuring 50+ local beers and a nice selection of wines, liquor, and mocktails
We are at 9412 Main St in Old Town Manassas, open 12PM daily until 11PM. Free parking nightly in adjacent parking lot, and across rails in parking garage.
We are Samuel Partner and John Hornberger, the owners, and we think gaming is good for people and good for the world, so we'd like to do what we can to give fellow gamers the place they've been looking for, plus expand the hobby and reintroduce people to what people have been doing since the beginning of history: eating, drinking, and bonding together over the game table.

Upcoming events (4+)

Open Games Sunday!

Crossroads Tabletop Tavern

A weekly meetup for all gamers, from heavy strategy to light party games. Crossroads has a 1,400+ library of games, free to all paying customers (food, drink, or retail purchases qualify). Owner John (yours truly) will be on hand to host the event, and usually be able to sit and play as well!

Mental Monday Trivia Night

Crossroads Tabletop Tavern

Every week it's a different theme! We have done authors and their works, Changing Seasons, Animated Characters, and lots more. Form a team, but your team score is the amount of correct answers divided by number of team members.

And, yes, there are prizes! If attendance is low, everyone gets something, but if it's big, the prizes are bigger, including gift cards!

All questions are either created by us, or taken from one of our very many trivia games on hand. There will always be easy and hard questions, plus a fair range for every kind of player to be involved.

Cost of attendance is being a patron of the store - buy food and drink or even a new game, and you're welcome to sit and play this (or any other game from our massive library!).

Advanced Strategy Game Night

Crossroads Tabletop Tavern

Have you ever been intimidated by a game? Glanced at it and ran for the hills (the ones without eyes)?

Well Gamemeister Sam is here to take you by the hand (not literally, though, that would be weird) and guide you to the promised land. Where the sun is always shining and the air smells like warm root beer and heavy cardboard aficionado's are afforded every opportunity to gorge themselves in all manner of scintillating strategy games.

I love a good strategy game, whether it's a dry theme-less euro, or a dice chucking ameritrash classic and everything in between. In addition I take great pride in learning games so that you don't have to! All of us know the feeling of bewilderment as participants fumble through rules, NEVER AGAIN!

The winner who dethrones me will earn a free meal or drink of their choice, so listen to that inner Jiminy Cricket pleading with you to take some time to join us TUESDAY NIGHTS for the greatest game nights on earth! (Or at least The Entire Western Hemisphere :P)

What's Up? Wednesdays: Social Games

Crossroads Tabletop Tavern

We're moving Chess to the weekend so we can get more party games and social deduction games to the table!

Werewolf Wednesday is still the 3rd Wednesday of each month, but now we'll host social deduction and party games EVERY Wednesday night, starting at 6 pm! Specific game choices will be made once people arrive and will depend on what people want to do. It's always democratic, and there will be a wide range of possible games, with the common thread that they will always be light-hearted (even when they are dark) and involve a lot of interaction between players.
