Code of Conduct

Sportsmanship - Win with humility and lose with grace. Offer encouragement, be understanding, listen without judgment, value opinions and support each other's choices. Do not interfere with another players game unless they specifically ask for your help.

Safety - Check in with staff at the desk before you sit down. Express yourself non-violently and age appropriately in your actions and language. Respect the physical space of people around you. If you are over 18 years of age, DO NOT sit to play with minors without checking with staff first. Leave other peoples' things alone and keep your hands to yourself.

Make a Reservation - Games are all run first come-first served. We offer reservations for games that run with limited seating. Visit our website www.shiretowngaming.com and you can reserve by phone (207)404-9943 or in person ahead of time. These games include Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer, Tournaments, and other Role Playing Games.

Accountability - Take care of your stuff and ours! Accept responsibility for your actions, behaviors and attitudes. If you are borrowing store games, put them back in the same condition as you borrowed them. If you bring games, toys, etc... with you when you visit, take them with you when you leave. Please DO NOT leave items behind. We will do our best to get any abandoned items back to their owners, however if items are not claimed in 30 days, they become shop property and will be dealt with accordingly.

Orphaned Cards, Figures, Dice, etc... - First and Foremost, we try to reunite the lost things with their rightful owner! After 1 week of the item in question not being claimed, we will do one of 3 things with it. 1. Cards/Game Pieces will be incorporated into the after school/homeschool programs for students and new players to borrow. 1. Cards/Game Pieces will be sold to purchase additional suppliers for people to borrow and use while in the shop. 3. They will be disposed of if they are deemed unusable.
