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.

WOTC announced today that the Open Gaming License (OGL), under which outsiders can produce material for the D&D game, will not get published until early in 2015. Interestingly, the announcement focuses on fan-created material, with no mention of how it might apply to professional publications. Many of today’s RPG copanies, esp. Paizo, Green Ronin, Troll Lords and Privateer, trace their origins back to the release of D&D 3.0 and the original OGL.
For those of you interested in publishing their own board game, Flat Lined Games has posted chapters of their book on the topic on the website, free. You can read what they have posted here.
We will remain open regular hours through the Memorial Day weekend. Through Monday, all active and inactive military get 1 free pack of Magic boosters and 10% off your purchase of in-stock merchandise. Just show your ID. Thank you for your service.
According to an email we received from Cryptozoic, we should see a restock in of the Adventure Time Card Game starter decks by the end of May. Cryptozoic did tell us we would likely get allocated with the first shipment, so if you want a Finn or Lady Unicorn deck, you should contact us to have one held.
WizKids sent out this email regarding the current availability of DiceMasters.
