But wait a minute, the gamers aren’t neglected. Not at all! There are two large rooms for gamers of all ages and games. From card games like Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon, to role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer 40K, and board games that feature Ticket To Ride, Catan, Arkham Horror, and much more! No electronic games, however. We let you have fun even when the power is out and the batteries are dead. The deep gaming inventory will certainly have something for you and your friends.

We’ve got you covered.

Up five steps, there is the dungeon for D&D (yes, our dungeon is upstairs), and there are organized games every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In the lower game room, Magic tournaments are featured on Friday. All the books, cards, maps, and minis you’ll ever need are available for your gaming needs. Let’s not forget the HeroClix and Digimon players! HeroClix rolls on Saturday and Digimon hits on Sunday. Everything needed for these games and others are available. Rockin’ Rooster also prides itself on helping new gamers with getting the chops and know-how they’ll need to join in the games.

One of the areas Rockin’ Rooster is most proud of is its community involvement. From November through December, Rockin’ Rooster runs weekly raffles to help the Freestone Food Bank provide for those less fortunate during that time of year. A little boost to help those who need it. Everyone from store customers to the employees pitch in to make this a great success! Former co-owner Dave Jackson started the fundraiser six or seven years ago, and although he retired in March 2022, he still runs the raffles and can be seen around the shop from time to time helping out. Rockin’ Rooster has also participated in the Kids Wish Network, Shop with a Cop program, and was proud to sponsor the North Hill Avengers, a Cincinnati Youth Baseball League Team.

The Rockin’ Rooster staff is knowledgeable, personable, and attentive to your every need. Each employee has an area of expertise along with a solid general knowledge of all the shop has to offer. Rockin’ Rooster also carries gifts, accessories, Funko, statues, and shirts. Got someone who’s tough to shop for? Gift Cards are available in any amount for the hard-to-please! Special orders are a specialty! Stop by sometime and let us show you around. You’ll be glad you did!
