Magic Ixalan Pre-release Weekend

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.

Preferred Customer Benefit

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.

New Arrivials

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.

Comic Creators Wanted

Do you live in the southern Illinois region (you can define what that is) and produce a print comic? If so, we would be interested in carrying your comic in the store. Over Eclipse Weekend we had several requests for comics produced by local creators indicating this is a niche that could be filled. We are primarily interested in all-ages and PG material but will look at R rated books as long as  they are clearly marked as such on the cover.

Yu Gi Oh World Championship Celebration

The Yu Gi Oh World Championship Celebration will take place this Saturday at noon. The first 16 participants will receive limited edition World Championship promo items:  record sheets, pens and lanyards. $10 entry fee. Each player will receive 2 participation packs and 1 pack for each round won. Depending on attendance, we will cut to top 2 or top for to play off for the mat. Please check the list posted in the game room for forbidden, limited and semi-limited cards.
