October 5, 2009
Our October in-store schedule is totally crazy, with some wide-spread changes, product launches, and some brand new events we think you’ll enjoy a ton. Because there’s so much going on, we thought we’d catalog it all for you in one easy place. Read on for all the cool news that this month is bringing, and, as always, feel free to contact us with any thoughts or questions on any of it!
Wednesday, October 7th – Arcane Legions Launch Party – 6:30-9:30pm
Come check out the release of Arcane Legions, an amazingly cool new semi-collectible miniatures battle game from HeroClix creator Jordan Weisman and co. It’s got a historical fantasy theme, and some really impressive new mechanics that lend themselves very well to a miniatures battle game. We’ll be doing free demos in the store all evening long, so stick your head in and give it a go.
Friday, October 9th – Monsterpocalypse Now! Launch Party – 6:30-9:30pm
We’re celebrating the release of the new Monsterpoc set on the day of its release with a Sealed Unit Draft – You bring two monsters, two buildings and five units of old product; entry fee is two new Unit Boosters per person. Join us for the release of Monsterpocalypse Now!
Monday, October 12th – Open RPG Night – 6:00-11:00pm
We’re opening up the store once a month for all GMs to run any role-playing sessions they want. Whereas GRPA is more focused on one-shots, Open RPG Night is an open invite to host your monthly campaign at the store. We have the space and the environment, and you’re welcome to take advantage of it. We’ll be here throughout the evening with tables galore. If GMs want, drop-ins are more than welcome. Let us know if you’d like to be on the monthly roster and we’ll get you set up. More on Open RPG Night on the forums. We love building the local role-playing community, and we think this event is a great opportunity to do just that. On the slate for our first night is a meeting for folks interested in getting together a monthly Pathfinder Society game.
Saturday, October 17th – Game Fair: Miniatures Games – 1:00-6:00pm
Welcome to Gamescape’s first Game Fair! Every month we hold a Fair, all day long we’ll be demoing three games that we think you should be playing. Show up with nothing other than your interest, and check out one-hour demos of some of the coolest things in the store that you might not otherwise know about – or perhaps you’ve just never had a chance to see it in-person. This month’s theme is great cross-over miniatures games, and we’ll be breaking out Arcane Legions, Infinity, and Space Hulk to show you how they’re played!
Every Other Wednesday – Historical Board Game Night – 6:00-10:00pm
To give our historically-minded patrons a chance to wave their flags, we’re dedicating every other Wednesday evening to pure historical games. Whether you’re looking for opponents or searching for some new suggestions for something that’s hot, it’ll be a great night to get your strategy to meet up with your tactics. Combat Commander, Axis & Allies, Memoir ’44, Squad Leader, Conflict of Heroes, Tide of Iron, GMT, Avalanche Press…whatever you like. We’ve got the tables, the community, and the passion. Come down and battle it out.
If you have any questions or would like more info on any of these events, please call the store (415.457.8698) or (Email Us) at your leisure.
