“There can be no bystanders in the battle for survival. Anyone who will not fight by your side is an enemy you must crush.”
– Lord Solar Macharius
This Sunday, June 26th, Gamescape North is hosting a special Warhammer 40,000 Doubles Tournament! Each participating player will command a 750-point army alongside that of an ally in order to crush the combined might of two other commanders.
Players may sign up for the event with a pre-chosen partner. If you do not have a partner before the tournament starts, you’ll be paired up with another player on the day of the event. When composing your 750-point army, consider the strengths and weaknesses of your list and how a partner’s force might supplement it for the benefit of both. We’ll be using the 40K Independent Tournament FAQ for this event, including variations on the ITC missions. We will not be using the Death From The Skies supplement.
Entry is $10 for an entire day of battles. Glorious prizes will be given out to the best teams. So be prepared to make friends – or more enemies!

Sunday, June 19th is Father’s Day and the crew at Gamescape North is dedicating the afternoon to one of the most storied father-son relationships in the multiverse. We’ll be on-hand all day to run demos of the fantastic Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game. After all, what better way to celebrate Dad than by blowing him into tiny little cosmic particles?
We’ll have our tables set up to play some quick skirmishes and we’re more than happy to introduce new players to the game. Fantasy Flight is contributing by throwing in a special Darth Vader/ Luke Skywalker promo pilot card, and every participant gets a free one just for hanging out with us. It’s more than just Dad who gets the gift this year! Read all about this special I Am Your Father’s Day event over at FFG, and we hope to see lots of fathers and sons this Sunday!

The schedule is here! For the tenth year running, summer heralds one of our favorite days of the year: Free RPG Day, where you can jump into a great game with other like-minded folks for some real adventure! The list of sessions we’re hosting is below, and all you have to do is sign up. No previous experience is necessary, so it’s a great chance to try out a system you’ve been eyeing for a while. Once you’ve got a confirmed spot, show up on June 18th, take home some of the free product, and have a blast with the other gamers who will be here!
The list of sponsors this year is impressive, including Catalyst Game Labs, Atlas Games, Paizo Publishing, Chaosium, Pelgrane Press, and a bunch more. Each of these publishers has created a special gaming book or item for the event, and they’re all free for you to enjoy. Really – they’ll be spread out on our counter for participants to leaf through and bring home.
Below is the official lineup of role-playing games scheduled for this year’s Free RPG Day on Saturday, June 18th. Have a look below, and if you’d like to join us for any of these sessions, please select a game in which you’d like to participate and either call or write us back with your name and selection. All games are free and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you’ll be responded to immediately with your status in the game.

Coming up this Friday, June 10th and again on Friday, June 17th we’ll be hosting MTG Eternal Masters Booster Draft Tournaments at Gamescape North. The cost for entry per player is $45, which will net you three boosters of MTG Eternal Masters with a prize payout of one pack per win in the tournament. As usual, we’ll be playing three rounds, which should take us to around 10pm. We’ll be keeping the pods capped at eight players each, and if enough people sign up we’ll run additional pods. If you’d like to reserve a spot, feel free to give us a call or stop by the store to give us your name and DCI number. If you’re planning on joining the fun, please also make sure you arrive at the store before 5:30pm to register and get ready for the event. We will be closing registration promptly at 5:45pm.
Join us for a rare chance to draft this very limited set, as we don’t know how long we’ll be able to obtain supplies from WotC. If there are enough packs left after these two events and after pre-orders are filled, we’ll be happy to set up some more drafts in the very near future. Hope to see you in the coming Fridays for some very special FNM events!
