Join us for a special Board Game Night this week as our friends from Blue Orange stop by for a demo session during our regular weekly event. Adrien and the gang will be bringing along a huge number of games including some sneak peeks of some new titles and a few sure-fire hits that have been recently released.
In addition to perennial hits like Gobblet and Battle Sheep, we’ll get a chance to try out a couple of eagerly-awaited new releases like Vikings on Board and The Boss. We’re already really excited about Brix and Dr. Eureka from earlier this year, and it’ll be great to have all of them in one place for a big night of fun!
Blue Orange has been one of our favorite companies for many years, and we always enjoy spending time with them, whether it’s playing games or playtesting them. Stop by the store and check out some of their newest releases and some old favorites, too!

MTG Kaladesh Game Days
What’s a little unsubstantiation between friends?
October 11, 2016
Codenames: Pictures is a word-association party game in which players take on the roles of spies racing to uncover secret locations and contact fellow agents. But care must be taken when decoding the clues given by your spymaster, as a mistake could lead to a blunder involving innocent bystanders, giving the advantage to a hostile agent, or putting your team at the mercy of an assassin!
The game is played across a grid of twenty unique picture cards taken from a deck of 140. Each picture card corresponds to a location where agents might lurk – friendly or otherwise. At the beginning of the game, players divide into two teams: red and blue. Each team elects a Spymaster, who gives clues to help their team home in on hidden allies. Victory goes to the team that first makes contact with all the agents of their own color. But the team that goes first must also find one additional person – the shifty Double Agent.

We’re hosting a special one-day Age of Sigmar campaign-style tournament absolutely chocked full of castle sieges! The event will feature three tables: a main table and two side tables. The outcomes of the battles on the two side tables will influence the siege that’s raging on the main table. Players can fight to outflank the enemy army, battle in the tunnels below the castle, or fight in the siege itself. The game will feature special rules to represent the siege along with with surprise twists in the battles themselves that the players will need to navigate in order to secure victory. Will you be the one to siege or simply the besieged?
Each player must bring an army of 1000, 1500, or 2000 points using the Pitched Battle rules of composition in the Age of Sigmar Generals Handbook (p. 107). Entry is $10, and the army that fares the best through the day gets a brand new copy of Warhammer Quest: The Silver Tower!
