October. It is one of our favorite months. We can wear hoodies again. We can choke down pumpkin spice-flavored things with reckless abandon. We get to sacrifice the five archetypes in order to keep the Ancient Ones from rising up and destroying us all-
Uh. I mean… KITTIES!
But most of all, it is a time when we can break out all of our scary stories and horror-themed games! And so we present to you the following fun things:
Halloween Comicfest & Spooky Game Day, October 25th, 11am to 9pm: There will be free promotional comics, free refreshments, and lots of demos for games that prominently feature zombies and Cthulhu!
Magic the Gathering Halloween Boo-ster draft, October 31st, 7pm: We managed to get our sweaty paws on some boxes of Innistrad, Dark Ascension, and Avacyn Restored, so we’re going to have a draft tournament with them on Halloween!
Featured Games: Our miniature game of the month is Malifaux, from Wyrd. It’s a fun card-based skirmish game that’s equal parts horror/wild west/steampunk. We’ll be running demos as often as possible, and our official demo day is October 11th. As for board games and tabletop picks, this time around we have:
CHUPACABRA: SURVIVE THE NIGHT
ZOMBIES KEEP OUT
NIGHT OF THE GRAND OCTOPUS
Get a demo or learn to play any of these games and get your own for 20% off! We also have 1st Edition Malifaux at 30% off, and all of our other horror games will be on sale from the 25th to the 31st!
Until next time, don’t forget to blow on the conch.
