We received 3 copies of the Charterstone Legacy style game this week. This is a boardgame that you customize over 12 different play sessions and are left at the end with a one of a kind worker placement game that still has lots of replayablity. This game has been selling out at stores and online nationwide so come in a get a copy before we sell out.
Our annual Christmas party takes place Sunday Dec. 17 starting at noon with snacks. The Humane Society of Southern Illinois will visit from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and we will donate 10% of sales during that period to them. The Southern Illinois Roller Girls will be here to help with the Christmas drawing of about $1500 worth of items at 4:30. How to get tickets for the drawing:
Come in. You get 1 ticket just for coming into the store
Wear a Christmas sweater or hat (1 ticket for each). Just a red and green sweater will not count. It must be something that shows off your Christmas spirit.
Get one for each 5 usable cans of food or 10 pounds of Newspaper
Get one ticket for each stamp you earn on your Castle Card that day
See you Sunday
Some interesting new releases and restocks this week. We have had supplements for the Scythe game for a few weeks but just now got the base game back in stock. The new edition of Twilight Imperium came out and, while they last, you get a hardcover copy of the rules with your copy of the boardgame. For you fans of the Sentinels of the Multiverse deckbuilding game, the Sentinels RPG system starter set released at only $19.99. The Genesys RPG from Fantasy Flight Games takes the Star Wars RPG system and expands it into a multi genre RPG. For the Legend of the 5 Rings card game, the Chrysanthemum Throne deck arrived and the new Unstable set for Magic releases on the 8th.
Last September, Paizo posted that there were problems with the binding coming away from the spine of the core Starfinder book. This only happened in about 1-2% of the books though but still, players wanted a good copy of the book. We finally got in a restock of the core rulebook so if you are one of the few that got a copy with this problem and purchased it here, Foxes or Game Table (not Amazon, sorry), bring in your copy and we will exchange it for you. Please note that it has to have the detached spine problem as shown below, for any other problem you will have to contact Paizo.
