Hi everybody! May is here, and that means many things of varying levels of radness, so let’s get to it.
First up, our Magic: Journey into Nyx prereleases went incredibly well, so big thanks to all who attended and helped out!
Our first event also saw the opening of one of the super rare ‘Divine Gift’ god packs containing ALL FIFTEEN GODS!
But wait, there’s more! This Friday, May 2nd is Launch Day, so you’ll not only be able to get your hands on Journey into Nyx boosters, fat packs, intro packs, singles, and supplies; You’ll also be able to play in our Sealed Deck event at 7pm and score even more promos and prize packs! And then it all culminates with the final stop on the Hero’s Path: Journey into Nyx Game Day on May 25th! There will be a free Standard tournament with the usual sweet promo prizes AND you’ll be able to play against Xenagos and his ‘Defeat a God’ Challenge Deck!
In other tournament news, we had what will be the first of many board game events, featuring the ridiculously fun King of Tokyo.
There was much smashing and stomping and beating of face, but in the end only one can be king, and it was Bruno who claimed the Space Penguin and the right to throw down at Nationals, which are being held at GenCon.
This weekend, Saturday May 3rd is that most glorious of days, FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! All day long you can stop by and claim any 5 books or promotional items as your own, completely free of charge! Full details and a list of what will be available can be found HERE. You don’t want to miss this, as it will rule the schools and rock the socks. But you don’t have to take MY word for it. Take his:
Taste the rainbow!
The week after, on Saturday May 10th, we celebrate all things steampunky, piratey, and gobberlike with PRIVATEER PLAY DAY! For ten hours we will rock the games of Privateer Press, giving out promos and registering folks to win things like nifty art prints along the way! You can borrow our copies of games like Level 7[Omega Protocol], High Command, Bodgermania, and many more, and play them until you explode with glee like a bile thrall! For more info take a look at THIS.
Finally, a new month means new demo games! Here’s what we want to shove onto your tabletops this time around:
The incredibly addictive game of gemstone mining and merchanting(which isn’t a word)!
Build a deadly dungeon, then lure the intrepid heroes to their terrible 8-bit doom!
Cthulhu-flavored Monopoly, only about ten million times better than that description implies.
The living card game that is sweeping all of the parts of the world that aren’t stubbornly obsessed with Magic or Yu-Gi-Oh! Play as a corporation or a hacker, fighting for control or exposure of hidden agendas.
Learn any of these games from one of us this month and get your very own copy for 20% off!
There’s lots of other stuff I didn’t have the room to mention nestled lovingly over in the calendar, so give it a look-see. Until next time, remember: Stand your ground.
