The July tournament of the 2014 NorCal Flames of War Tournament Series will be held at Gamescape North on Saturday, July 26th. We will be hosting a Mid-War “Urban Block Party” where the battles will be fought in dense city-fight terrain with small forces on small boards. The NorCal Forum has all the details of the rules and current roster of generals. So send in your lists to Sam Wallis by Thursday, July 24th and join the fight!

The venerable vanguard of RPGs is back! Dungeons & Dragons, the role-playing game that started it all, has just released its Starter Set for the brand new 5th Edition. It’s no exaggeration to say that Gamescape probably wouldn’t be here were it not for this game, so to celebrate the new edition, we’ll be running a second demo this month to give you a chance to try it out. In the afternoon of Sunday, the 20th of July we’ll be hosting a first step into the new edition with a one-day adventure: Goblin Arrows. You don’t have to know anything about the new rules to join in the fun, and in fact you can download a basic version of the 5th edition rules right now for free! In the meantime, we’ll have the open box behind the counter so you can take a look. Call the store or stop by to sign up and reserve a spot in either session, and let’s give D&D the warm welcome back that it deserves!
Why is it never simple? Escorting a small wagon load of mining supplies should be easy, right? Of course, you were hired by a Dwarven treasure-seeker and you are going to Phandalin, the town with the lost Wave Echo Cave mine somewhere in the surrounding hills. Come to think of it, why are we surprised this isn’t simple?

Continuing our very fun and successful series of Magic events, Gamescape is pleased to be hosting a double-dip of Magic: The Gathering Pre-Release spectaculars! MTG 2015 Core Set releases on Friday, July 18th. Our Pre-Releases will take place one week before then on Saturday and Sunday, July 12th and 13th at 12:00 noon. These will be Sealed Deck Tournaments using the MTG 2015 Core Set Mana Seeded Pre-Release Packs.
If you’re interested in attending the pre-release tournament, we ask that you please sign-up ahead of time, as we have limited space for the event. You can do this in a number of ways: either by calling the store, sending an e-mail, or by dropping into the store in-person. Please include your DCI number when you register. There are 66 spaces available, so be sure to reserve yours soon! We ask also that you please arrive to the tournament before 12:00 noon in order to pay your entry fee of $30.00. Included in your entry will be a MTG 2015 Core Set Mana Seeded Pre-Release Pack that includes a special pre-release promo card.
This Sealed Tournament will consist of one flight of entrants with the goal of the event to be completed by 6pm. Prizes will be given in the form of MTG 2015 Core Set booster packs, promo cards, and some other nifty prize support that we have in the store. We regret that we will not be admitting players after 12:00pm SHARP. Please arrive as early as you can to ensure that we get playing as soon as possible.

Most stores observe national holidays by shutting down. Here at Gamescape, we have a better idea: LETS PLAY!
On Friday, the 4th of July, we will be gaming all day at another great Gamescape July 4th Board Game Party. Come celebrate our indefatigable right to play as long and as hard as we want to – on the Nation’s birthday! The games get underway at 11am, and with a full library of demo games to play, there will be no shortage of fun. Of course, you’re more than welcome to bring one of your own favorites and gather a group of like-minded gamers to throw down with. We’ll keep the party going ’til at least 11pm, which gives you plenty of time for one of the big games that don’t usually come out on Thursday Board Game Nights. Optionally, feel free to squeeze in as many smaller, quicker games as you can. When the time comes, drop out to see some fireworks and then drop back in – just don’t set off any in the store, please.
So come join us! Feel free to bring along snacks and/or drinks. Who needs family BBQs when you have a family of smack-talking gamers? You know you really want to play that new copy of Winter Tales instead…
