All staff, players, spectators, customers, and visitors are expected to conduct themselves in a way that ensures all others present can enjoy themselves as much as possible. Any conduct that makes it difficult for others to participate, observe, shop, or visit Java Game Haus or one of our events is not allowed.
Java Game Haus reserves the right to ask anyone to leave at any time. We also reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit you from access to our property should you violate any portion of our Haus Rules.

Improper Attire – Customers or participants who wear obscene, demeaning, disruptive, or overly revealing attire as determined by the sole discretion of staff may be asked to leave the store until they are able to change.

Competing Business – Although we encourage trading amongst our players and customers, all buying and selling for any form of currency must be conducted through Java Game Haus. Offenders may be asked to leave.
Violence – Violence or threats of violence will not be tolerated.
Children 12 or under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian while in the store at all times. This includes tournaments and long-running events.
Games cease to be fun when a player or players break the rules to achieve victory. A player should prefer to lose a game than to win by cheating.
Taking advantage of inexperienced players or others will not be tolerated. Similarly, colluding with other players to fix a game will not be permitted.
All decisions made by an appointed judge for an event are final, and employees have no influence on the decisions of the judge.
Players of any game should strive to act in good faith of the game while playing.
Customers are expected to inform the staff immediately if they observe an illegal activity in our store or during our events.
Players, spectators, customers, staff, and property should be treated with the same respect that players would expect for themselves and their property.
Winning or losing with grace is vital to the enjoyment of any game. The desire to continue playing a game can be soured by a player that berates or disrespects their opponent after winning or losing a match. Demeaning or disrespectful comments or actions before, during, or after a game indicate poor sportsmanship and will not be tolerated.
