Gamescape is proud to bring you our Warhammer 40,000 Tactical Strike Campaign as a special springtime treat. Over the next four weeks, players supporting both the forces of order and disorder will compete to claim victory for their armies in the struggle for supremacy during the 41st millennium. As battles are fought, players will see their heroes gain new skills and abilities, making them ever more powerful and dangerous. Players will also need to manage the resources of their army in order to bring their best fight to the battlefield each week.
The first session will be Tuesday, March 31st at our normal time of 6-10pm. The campaign will continue for the following three Tuesdays at the same time. We’ll be using the Forgeworld Tactical Strike rules, which can be found on page 164 of Horus Heresy Book III. We’ll have a summary of the rules available on the first night of the campaign, as well. Players should show up ready to build a modified 500-point army using these campaign rules. Entry for all four weeks is 100% free!
Will you have what it takes to stand victorious at the end?

Our Gotta-Play series is a weekly spotlight on particular games that we think are exceptionally fun and that we believe everybody should try, whether brand new or old classic. On every Saturday afternoon we’ll have a game laid out on one of our front tables, and we’ll be offering free demos and a chance for you to give it a shot. If you try it and find that you simply must have a copy, we’ll be offering a 10% discount on that title through the demo period. So it’s great way to build up your library of the very best games we have in the store – while saving a few bucks along the way! We’ll be demoing Carcassonne this Saturday, March 28th 1-4pm.
The mighty Carcassonne is a delightful game of visual perception, resource management, and puzzle-building that offers a surprising depth of options and tons of replay value. Luck is a constant factor, but ultimately it’s the choices that each player makes – and how those choices interact – which will determine the outcome of the game. Named after the medieval walled city in France, players must use the resources they are given to complete the building of the fortress and its environs. To do this, each player attempts to balance two actions: strategically placing tiles which represent the development of the countryside, and placing tokens (meeples) on those tiles to score the most points by the time the last tile is placed.

Another great OP event from Fantasy Flight is on deck! Official Seasonal Organized Play events for Android Netrunner The Card Game are back in 2015, and this is the perfect opportunity to test your deck-building and infiltration skills against other local Runners. Gamescape North will be hosting a Netrunner Winter Tournament on Sunday, March 29th 12-5pm.
Entry for the event is $10 per player. Each player must bring both one Corporation and one Runner deck. We’ll be playing three rounds of Swiss-style pairings with prizes handed out at the end according to the final standings.
If you’re already an old hand at Netrunner, you’ll know how awesome it is, and why it’s so popular – our last Plugged-In Tour event had over eighty players! But the Seasonal Tourneys are also great for newer Runners, and this is a good chance to meet other Netrunner enthusiasts in the area.
In Android: Netrunner, you and your opponent constantly vie for better information, the strongest economy, and the control of valuable data. Corps attempt to secure their business plans within massive servers, layered with lethal traps and formidable ice, while Runners seek to navigate these virtual labyrinths. Each cat-and-mouse game is full of bluffs and counter-bluffs, with vast, virtual fortunes and the well-being of millions of people at stake!
