This weekend is the pre-release weekend for Magic Ixalan. We will stay open all night Friday night the 22 and start handing out pre-release packs at 12:01 a.m. Players will have 30 minutes in which to build a deck and play 3-4 rounds, depending on number of people playing in the tournament. We will host a second tournament at 2 p.m on Saturday afternoon and two more tournaments on Sunday, one at 12:30 p.m. in the afternoon and a 2-headed giant tournament at 4:30 p.m. or whenever the 12:30 tournament concludes, whichever comes 2nd. If you pre-registered for all 4 tournaments, or play in all 4 over the course of the weekend, you will receive a free limited edition playmat, either the one depicted above or a 2nd one we commissioned. We will provide pizza and door prizes at all 4 tournaments. We still have a few slots remaining. The cost to enter is $30 for one tournament or $100 for all 4. See you this weekend.
Join us for the Magic Ixalan Open House this Saturday, all day. Bring in a Magic Standard format deck or use one of ours, play a game and, while quantities last, get an Ixalan “Walk the Plank” foil card. We only have 30 cards, but, if we run out of promo cards, we will substitute another one.
We have added a couple of new benefits to the Preferred Customer Card.
1) You receive 1 FREE rental per month of any rentable game in the game library.
2) Although you still have to pay the rental fee, we will not ask for a cash or credit card deposit when you rent a game. Just show us your Preferred Customer card and we will note that on the sheet. You will still be charged late fees for bringing the game back late and refusing to pay those will cause you to lose Preferred Customer status.
Wanting to do something to help those caught in the path of #HurricaneHarvey, the store will donate 10% of its sales on Sept. 3 and Labor Day to relief funds aiding those displaced by the storm. #HurricaneHarveyRelief
Found a stack of these 2015 promo booster packs in the storeroom. While quantities last, buy 5 booster packs and get one random one free.
As part of Iello Games’ Elite Retailer program, we received 6 copies of the Mountains of Madness co-operative board game 6 weeks earlier than its scheduled release date. This game looks as if it should retail for $49.99 or even $59.99 but retail is only $39.99. Players work together to scale a mountain in Antarctica, seize the relics found there and escape with their remaining sanity. We only received 6 copies of the game and once they sell out, that is it until early to mid-October. At $39. this is a great game at a great price.
For those who remember the late, lamented Egyptian Campaign gaming convention, which ran from about 1990 until 2007, we were contacted by an attendee who found this never worn medium t-shirt from the 2006 con in a closet. If you are interested, he can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Releases today and tomorrow. Since we are a Konami Official Tournament Store, we can put the new Yu Gi Oh Tins out for sale today. We have 3 of each tin in stock. The new Magic 2017 Commander Decks will go on sale tomorrow. A case of 4 decks is $159.99. The Feline Ferocity deck is $39.99 while the other three decks are $49.99 each. We only received 4 sets of these and expect them to sell quickly.
Remember, we play Dungeons & Dragons here every Wednesday evening and are getting ready to start up a 2nd night on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. for higher level play.
