The Burthorpe Games Room is a minigame located in Burthorpe. You can also teleport there using a games necklace made by enchanting a sapphire necklace, or by using the Minigame Group Finder interface. Not the most popular, as there are no rewards or prizes for playing except game rankings. Some clans meet here to relax and play the board games. Sam and Rachael both sell glasses of beer: Asgarnian ale, Wizard's mind bomb, and Dwarven stout for 2 coins each.

The games in the Burthorpe Games Room are quite common brain-teasing puzzle games, such as Othello, Draughts (known as checkers in North America), and Connect Four. They are played with one person at a time, and the player can be challenged to any of the four games via the lobby. However, at the end of each game, the player is placed in a room in which they can only challenge their opponent to another match of the previous game; making it so you must return to the main room prior to challenging them to a different game.


A game of Draughts.

Draughts is RuneScape's version of Draughts (known in North America as checkers), using runes instead of checkers. Like real checkers, the object of the game is to 'jump' over all of your opponent's pieces.


A game of Runelink.

Runelink is RuneScape's version of Connect Four, using runes instead of connect four checkers. Each player must click a column, which will drop their rune to the bottom-most empty space in that column. A player wins when he or she connects four of his runes diagonally or in a straight line.


A game of Runeversi


Runeversi is RuneScape's version of Reversi or Othello using runes as game pieces. The goal is to have more of your runes on the board than your opponent. You can take your opponents pieces by trapping them between your own.


A game of Runesquares.

The Runesquares board is arranged in a grid pattern. Each player fills in white line segments. If a player closes a box (his or her line completes a 1x1 square), that player's rune appears in the box. The player then gets another turn to place another segment. The game ends when all boxes are filled, and the player with the most filled-in squares is the winner.


The goblin army seen during the quest from the western side of the Burthorpe Games Room.

  • The area where the cutscene from The Eyes of Glouphrie takes place in can be seen from the western side of the Games Room by using an oculus orb. As the gnome and goblin armies are not classified as NPCs by the game, they can be seen as well.
  • Before the change to random events in 11 September 2014, players used to high alch in the Games Room because there was a restriction that kept randoms from interfering with players.
