Now’s your chance to participate in Fantasy Flight’s elite tier of Organized Play for their Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game! Gamescape North is proudly hosting a 2014 Store Championship tournament on Saturday, March 22nd 12-5pm. FFG’s Store Championships are specially-selected tournaments with larger formats and better prize support than their regular Game Night tournament and events, held at FLGSs all over the world – just like us.
More details about the event can be found on the Store Championships page on FFG’s website. In the meantime, read up on the updated tournament rules, which can be downloaded here. Each player will need to bring a 120-point squad and two copies of its corresponding squad list (one for the GM and one for your opponents) to the event. Entry will be $10 per player, and we’ve got a juicy kit full of prizes to hand out to the best players of the event. These include an official X-Wing Store Championship plaque, card boxes with cool Star Wars artwork, special acrylic range rulers, and a stack of alternate-art pilot cards! Note that the overall winner also gets a certificate for a first-round bye at the 2014 X-Wing Regional Championship later this summer!
All prospective participants should get in touch with us ASAP to reserve a place in the tournament roster. If you haven’t yet checked out one of the best strategy miniatures games in the store, this is a perfect chance to do so.
X-Wing is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE Fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates Star Wars’ exciting space battles. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!

MTG Born of the Gods Game Day Tournament
Saturday, March 1st • 12:00 – 6:00pm
Continuing our very fun and successful series of Magic events, Gamescape North is pleased to be hosting MTG Theros Game Day on Saturday, March 1st. There will be two main formats for our Magic: The Gathering players to participate in:
The first event is a Standard Constructed Tournament with an entry fee of $10.00. If you’re interested in attending this event, we ask that you please sign-up ahead of time, as we have limited space for each. 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 48 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 $10.00. Included in your entry will be the Kiora’s Follower Game Day Full Art promo card. The top eight players including the Game Day Champion also get a promo foil Pain Seer card.
The second event will be another quest on your Hero’s Path that pits you against the minotaurs with the Face the Horde Challenge Deck. This self-running deck simulates the epic battle with the furious, roiling horde. Bring your Magic deck and your Hero Card collection and play against the Challenge Deck by yourself or with friends. Defeating the minotaurs will earn your Hero Card – The Vanquisher – that you can use in future battles with Challenge Decks throughout the Theros block. This challenge will be available throughout the day for players to engage in between rounds or on a drop-in basis.
The Standard Constructed 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 Born of the Gods 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, provided that there is space left on the day of the event. Please arrive as early as you can.
Special Box Discounts
As always, we’re offering 20% off the retail price on full boxes of MTG Born of the Gods if you’re in our Customer Rewards system or if you sign up for our Geek Card program. The points that you accrue on the purchase will also be tallied on your account. Individual boosters will remain at the standard retail price of $3.99.

This Thursday evening at our Board Game Night, we’ll be holding a special Valentine’s Day-themed special event for fun and prizes: a tournament for Love Letter, the delightful and snappy card game that we picked as one of the best of 2013, and you’re invited to play. We’ll be dividing up players into evenly-numbered pods and each one will play to a winner before tallying and reporting the scores at the end of each game. The number of rounds will be determined by how many people participate. We expect the tournament to last about two hours.
Entry is $5, with the chance to win some great prizes from Gamescape and AEG:
• First place winner gets a free copy of the L5R edition of Love Letter.
• Second place winner nabs a set of chocolate RPG dice.
• PLUS: after we send in some pictures of our tournament to AEG, we’ll be eligible to win a huge package of AEG product – which we’ll of course pass on to our players!
And for some extra (and delicious) fun, we’ll be using Hershey’s Kisses as point markers. Refrain from consuming your points before they’re tallied!
We have a couple of copies of Love Letter in the store for use, but each pod will need one to participate. So if you have your own copy, please do bring it in just in case.
