    August 17, 2015

    pic1904079_lg

    On Thursday, August 27th 7-10pm we’ll be taking advantage of Asmodee’s new AsmOPlay program by hosting a friendly tournament for the amazing board game Splendor. Players will be divided up into game groups and each group 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 three hours, depending on the sign-ups.

    Entry is $10, with the chance to win some great prizes:

    • First place winner gets a complete play set: a new copy of Splendor, a full set of special edition translucent chips, and a Splendor play mat.

    • Second place winner nabs a full set of the special edition translucent chips.

    • Third place winner gets a set of the chips without the special edition gold chips.

    • Fourth place winner gets a Splendor play mat.

    All participating players will get a set of four new Patron tiles to add to their copies of the game, and we’ll also be handing out a special door-prize at random!

    Sign-ups will be taken on a first-come/first-served basis, so let us know ASAP if you’re interested in joining in the fun. You can contact us by phone, email, or stop by the store to secure a spot in person.

    We have a couple of copies of Splendor in the store for use, but we might need some more copies depending on the number of players. If you have your own copy and are willing to use it at the event, please do bring it along in just in case!

    Star Wars Armada Demo

    August 9, 2015

    Following on the success of Star Wars: X-Wing, Fantasy Flight’s new fleet-based combat game Star Wars: Armada takes the fight up in scale. Now you’re in control of mighty capital ships as they maneuver and bring their gargantuan arsenals to bear on amassed fleets of foes in deep space.

    Instead of planning your moves in secret for the following turn, each ship has special orders that get placed up to three turns in advance. It takes time for these behemoths to respond to the helm’s orders! Meanwhile, squadrons of small fighters engage from all sides in an attempt to pull fire away from the command ships which they protect. Armada really captures the feel of what large-scale space encounters might be like, and we think it’s awesome.

    To show you what Armada is all about, we’ll have a base set and several expansions set up this weekend for teaching and playing a few rounds. Drop by on Saturday 1-4pm and join in the fun. It’s only the galaxy at stake…

    You are in command now, Admiral.

    Warhammer Age of Sigmar

    August 2, 2015

    Warhammer: Age of Sigmar 
    Learn to Play all August

    These were the End Times. The world is no more, torn apart by treachery and Chaos.
    And yet…endings always beget beginnings.

    Thus ended the Warhammer Fantasy storyline. For months we’ve been wondering what would come next, and we finally have the answer – welcome to the Age of Sigmar!

    Immediately after the destruction, Sigmar finds the very heart of the Old World and shapes nine new realms from this core of precious Sigmarite. These are the mortal realms, which are all linked to the Winds of Magic. One of these realms harbors the forces of Chaos, which strike out using Realm Gates to move between them. They manage to conquer all of the realms but one: Azyr, the Realm of the Heavens. Sigmar seals the gates into this realm and builds a mighty fortress to defend it. From this refuge he creates the Stormcast Eternals to fight back the tides of Chaos. Age of Sigmar lets you fight countless battles across the realms as Sigmar tries to push back the endless waves of Chaos.

    Age of Sigmar is a total departure from Warhammer Fantasy. We’ve been poring through the new Warscrolls and playing as much as we can in order to understand all the changes and be better able to answer all of your questions. We have three Sunday dates in August when you can come in a check out the new game, Aug 2nd, 16th, and 30th We’ll have the new models out and will be teaching the game to anyone interested in giving it a try. If you’re curious about the new rules or just want to throw some dice in a quick battle, come join us for some fun. Pick any models and start playing right away. You can find a free copy of the rules and all of the Warscrolls here, so have a look and prepare for the coming of the new age!
