For some reason, moving to the new year has thrown the store calendar off by one day for a number of events. Our webmaster is working on the problem. Be advised that Friday Night Magic is still on Friday.
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.
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.
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.
For those of you wanting to take a look at D&D 5th edition, WOTC has posted a PDF of the basic rules here. If you would like to know the difference between the Basic Rules and the 5th edition Starter Set, look here.
We are installing new carpet this Wednesday , Thursday and Friday so the store will have a lot of shelving moved around. We will be putting in carpet in the front third of the store on Wednesday, the middle on Thursday and the rear on Friday. Part of our parking will be taking up by the carpeters’ truck. Sorry for any inconvenience but the store will look much nicer.
