For those of you who cannot make it to the Friday and Saturday 8 p.m. Haunted Carbondale Walking Tours, Big Muddy Tours has added late night tours every night through Halloween. Tours will start at the store at 11:30 and will take approximately 2 hours. You will need to contact the store by 9 p.m. in order to reserve a spot on the tour and tours will need a minimum of 2 people. Due to scheduling conflicts there will not be a 8 p.m. tour this Friday Oct 24 but Saturday’s 8 p.m. tour is still on schedule
Erin Callahan will present a zombie makeup workshop from 1 to to 3 p.m. today. The Little Egypt Ghost Society will host a Haunted Carbondale tour at 8 p.m. tonight. The zombie makeup workshop is free, $15 per person for the Haunted Carbondale tour.
Our Gym Leader for Pokemon, Caroline, is sick today. Pokemon casual play will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. as normal, but without her.
A customer of the store lost your wallet in the vicinity of Walnut and Poplar. It was found in the parking lot behind St. Francis Xavier Church and had either a Castle or Iron Rations Card tucked in it. The person who found it turned it over to the Carbondale Police Department and you can claim it there.
With October coming, for those who love this time of year as much as we do, we have added the Haunted Carbondale walking tour, accessible from the tab on our main page. There are also instructions there for booking a guided History and Hauntings of Carbondale Tour with Big Muddy Tours.
Just added a few new photos of Sarah Extrand in costume at the Knights of the Dinner Table web series shoot. Note that she is not in costume as a character in the movie but that may happen next summer.
According to our supplier, we expect to see more DiceMasters arriving Monday. In a rare example of coinciding orders, we should have both starter sets and booster packs in stock at the same time, unfortunately not very many of either.
Most current information we have is that the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual will release on Sept. 19.
WOTC recently announced they were pulling the plug on their Kaijudo TCG. Some comments about it and why the game failed on the store blog.
We just received a stack of out of print RPG books, mainly D&D but a set of books for the Wild Talents RPG. Of note in the D&D books are Tasselhoff’s Map Pouch: Legends and Tasslehoff’s Map Pouch: War of the Lance. These last two indicate why pricing used books is such a dicey business as online prices vary widely. Take the Map Pouch: Legends. Pricing on it ranges from about $24 to almost $1000, depending on where you shop.
