You can find our Summer 2016 Camp Castle form here. We have 4 weeks worth of activities this summer:
June 27- July 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Malifaux
July 11 through July 15th 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Pokemon
July 18-July 22nd 1 p.m. -4 p.m. Magic
July 25th-July 29th 1 p.m. to 4 p.m Pathfinder
Cost is $100 per attendee and we must have a minimum of 4 pre-registered for a camp to take place.
We have, as you can see, stacks of Shadows Over Innistrad in the stockroom, ready for release at Midnight the morning of April 8th. That means we will remain open from 10 a.m. on April 7 until 1 a.m. on April 8th for your SOI needs. We will not be selling any SOI Fat Packs until after the Fat Pack Tournament taking place at 6:30 pm. on April 8th.
No idea what a Fat Pack Tournament is? Long time Magic players will remember the Sealed Deck tournaments of yore. This is similar. Purchase and open a SOI Fat Pack and build a 40 card play deck from the contents. All other cards are your sideboard. You will receive 1 pack of SOI for each round you win and the lovely trophy above if you have the best standing after play is complete. Hope to see you Friday!
Magic sales were up for the 1st quarter in 2015, but down for the subsequent 2 quarters. More about it here.
For the immediate future, as we have found ourselves way overstocked on good cards, we will only be offering trade on Magic cards, no cash except on high end cards.
With the pre-release for the new Magic set coming up this weekend and Battle for Zendikar releasing October 2, WOTC has kindly released the deck list for the Battle for Zendikar Event Decks and there is some pretty nice stuff in there.
