Gnome Games Board Game Rental FAQ

Can I rent the game for more than one night at a time? Yes – but we do limit it to a 3 day rental. This allows you to take the game for a weekend.

Can I rent more than one game at a time? Yes, right now we are limiting it to 3 games per customer.

What happens if I lose pieces or my dog eats the game? You are responsible for keeping the game safe and returning it in the same condition as when you rented it. If you lose, break or damage a game you will purchase it.

I forgot to return the game yesterday, so now it’s late. What happens? You are responsible for returning the games on time during normal business hours. If you are late we will charge you an additional days rental.

Will you ever put Game X into the Gnome Games Board Game Rental Program? Ask! We won’t be putting any of the highly collectible games into the program, and probably won’t have a lot of old, out of print titles available either, but ask!

Can I get a lot of games for a company party? Yes! But this type of request would be handled though our Community Outreach and Family Game Night Program. You can learn more about that here – https://gnomegames.com/family-game-night-community-outreach-events/
