Some interesting new releases and restocks this week. We have had supplements for the Scythe game for a few weeks but just now got the base game back in stock. The new edition of Twilight Imperium came out and, while they last, you get a hardcover copy of the rules with your copy of the boardgame. For you fans of the Sentinels of the Multiverse deckbuilding game, the Sentinels RPG system starter set released at only $19.99. The Genesys RPG from Fantasy Flight Games takes the Star Wars RPG system and expands it into a multi genre RPG. For the Legend of the 5 Rings card game, the Chrysanthemum Throne deck arrived and the new Unstable set for Magic releases on the 8th.

We added a new functionality to the store, a site where you can see many of the products we stock including new releases as they arrive. We scan them in and they pop up on the website. You cannot order directly from the site but you can use it to see it to what products we have.
Since we are a bit overstocked on Amokhet, until further notice Amonkhet boosters are 3 packs for $9.99. We still have the Dino Sized Bonus packs for when you buy a box of Ixalan as well. The special we ran on Oath of the Gatewatch has now ended though.
We still have a few Magic 2015 promo packs remaining. While they last, buy 5 packs of Magic (or 2 Modern Masters) and get one of these 2015 Magic Promo packs free. The actual promo pack may differ from the one pictured here as WOTC put out several different types.
While they last, Buy a Box of Magic Ixalan booster packs and get this Buy a Box booster and the Buy a Box Promo card free. In each BIBTB pack are:
2 foil basic lands illustrated by Rebecca Guay
4 rares or mythic rares from Standard-legal sets
2 foils of any rarity from Standard-legal sets
1 foil Burning Sun’s Avatar
We have opened 2 boxes of singles for Ixalan singles so far and will have a binder of cards available for you to peruse at Midnight Friday Morning when Ixalan officially goes on sale.
We will stay open until midnight this Thursday night for the release of the new Magic Ixalan set with Bundles, boosters, booster boxes, Planeswalker decks and singles available for purchase.

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.
