“We are incredibly appreciative of the support our community is showing our small business,” Donahue wrote in her email, adding that many people have asked if they can buy gift cards now for redemption later. “Of course, you can,” she said, “and we can’t possibly tell you how much the gesture means to us.”
Labyrinth has set up a gift card ordering system. Within 48 hours of your purchase, you will receive a gift card number and barcode that can be redeemed at a future date via email. Visit here to purchase your online gift card!
Play With Friends
On-site events are deferred for now, but Labyrinth is still hosting games online.
Role-Playing Games: Because of the interest in virtual RPG’s, we will be running both Guild of Heroes (our Kid’s D&D group) and Intro to D&D session remotely. We are still ironing out the final details about which platforms to best use, but these events will be announced by Thursday.
Take and Paint: If you’re going to be inside a bunch, this is a great time to pick up a new hobby like miniatures painting! Labyrinth has had to cancel the Paint and Take sessions, but instead you can pick up a mini and join a virtual class with our staff painting teachers.
Tag #LabyrinthDC with pictures of you and your loved ones playing games! “Besides showing the community that we are still open for business, it always puts a smile on our face to see you all playing games you got here,” wrote Donahue.
