Effective immediately, we request that children, teens and adults who care to enjoy a video game during a visit only bring games into the building with a rating of either EC (Early Childhood) or E (Everyone). If you are uncertain of the rating assigned to a favorite game, please consult the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) Ratings Guide here .
