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
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.
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.
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.
Just updated the want list for Yu Gi Oh and Magic cards. No prices are listed as our offer will depend on what the current going rate is for the card. Card prices fluctuate on a day to day basis.
We have a limited number of From the Vault: Annihilation sets for Magic arriving. If you have a Preferred Customer card, we will sell you 1 From the Vault set at list price. We will only have a limited number of sets available for Preferred Customers to purchase though, so get your order in early.
Other ways to get FTV sets are to play Friday Night Magic. Everyone who shows up for 4 Friday Night Magic sessions between now and the end of September will get entered in a drawing for the opportunity to purchase a FTV set at list price. Each additional session you show up for beyond 4 earns you one additional ticket.
We will also have a drawing for the opportunity to buy a a FTV set from among players in the next Magic Pre-release for Khans of Tarkir. Each pre-release you play in earns you one ticket into the drawing.
