  • Blood Bowl Tournament

    April 24, 2015

    The fate of the world, be it damnation or salvation, will soon be decided. But before that happens it is time to play! For one day only, war is set aside for the glory of competition. This is the world of Blood Bowl!

    Only one sporting event can draw together the Elves of Athel Loren, the Humans of the Empire, the Orcs of the Green Horde, and all the other races of the Warhammer Old World. On Sunday, April 26th @12-6pm, Gamescape North will be hosting our first Blood Bowl Tournament in quite a while. Want to play in the greatest of all Fantasy Football Leagues? We’ll be running three games at two hours each, and interested coaches should bring a team worth 1.2 million GP. Entry is free!

    There will be some starting skill advancements, and re-rolls will cost double after the fourth time. Unpainted teams will give your fully-painted opposition a +5 Fan Factor, so get those teams uniformed and ready! No prizes are being awarded in this casual tourney, other than bragging rights (until the next game) and the favor of Tzeentch, whom we hear is a BIG Bloodbowl fan…

    3rd Annual Bargain Basement Bash

    April 19, 2015

    For more than twenty years, a dark void has lingered in the lower dungeons of GSN, attracting glittering hordes of old stock and strangely arcane gaming items from all edges of the map. It is a golden trove of wonder, and very few brave souls have ever laid eyes upon it and survived to tell the tale. Once per year we open the portal and bring forth whatever the dungeon has to offer. The time has come again to carry these mystical treasures into the light of day. These are the lost items; the ones that never got a second chance. These are the lost souls that were relegated to the deepest dungeon. Now it is their time to be free…

    Riding on the success of the previous Bargain Basement events, we’re clearing out a whole mess of accumulated product from the Gamescape basement stores. Even WE don’t know everything that’s down there, but on Saturday and Sunday, May 2nd & 3rd, we’re hauling it all up and putting it out for our customers to dig through. This is your chance to delve into our forbidden horde of past products, old demos, dinged boxes, and heavy overstock from years past. There are scores of board games, miniatures and bits, and role-playing books galore. And all of it will be on sale, at extremely cheap prices.

    We’ve got so much stuff that it’ll take two entire days to even dig through it all, so we’re dedicating the entire weekend to clearing it out. We want your help! All day, both Saturday and Sunday during regular opening hours, we’ll have our back tables filled with goodies. For mere pocket change, you can dig into the venerable stock of the store – perhaps you’ll find something legendary!

    Review: Battle Sheep

    April 18, 2015

    Battle Sheep is a light-hearted game where two to four players vie for territorial dominance on the grazing pasture. Players take control of their tokens, which represent herds of sheep, and move stacks of them around the hexagonal board to fence in their fluffy foes. At its core, Battle Sheep is an abstract strategy game (quite similar to Hey, That’s My Fish!) that has the ability to entertain many different age groups with simple but engaging gameplay. It’s a sheep-eat-grass world out there, so may the best herd win!
