    Flooding at Mox Portland

    Early Wednesday morning (12/7), we arrived to open the store and were faced with a terrible surprise: our building was severely flooded. Water had seeped through the walls and ceiling, damaging RPG books, MTG cards, office carpets, and even some of our beautiful wooden fixtures and cabinets.UPDATE Wednesday 12/14/22: Great news everyone! We're opening again this evening at 4pm! We're still in the middle of some repairs, so please forgive any areas still under construction. We're open for dining and drinks, and you're welcome in to play and buy some games & gifts. Please note: our MTG Portal is still going through repairs and card pick-ups are still unavailable until next week. We couldn't be more excited to welcome everyone back to Mox. Thank you for all of your wonderful support
