In order to properly stuff our faces on Thanksgiving this year, the crew at Gamescape is taking the day off so that we can be fully recharged to welcome all of those eager faces pressed dutifully against our windows on Friday morning. We’re calling it Purple-and-Black Friday, but we might be a bit biased. Whatever you call it, we’ll be ready for the rush this weekend, which also signals the official firing off of the holiday shopping season.
It’s no rest for the weary, though, as our calendar of in-store events is moving ahead at full throttle. We’ve got a whole herd of awesome game demos coming up, run by the designers, themselves; another Tanksgiving event on Tuesday for Warhammer 40K; and a sneak-preview tournament for the new X-Wing miniatures game Kessel Run expansion. More on all of this very soon.
We’ll be giving thanks on Thursday for all sorts of things: for family and friends, for gaming, for our amazing Gamescape community, and for the support of our great customers. And definitely for HUGE AMOUNTS OF GRUB. And this year, we’re also thankful for planning far enough ahead to bring you our yearly gift guide before the holidays even start. So put this in your corncob pipe and smoke it:
You already know that we’ve got great game suggestions for you when you need them; we always look forward to the holidays as a time when we get to tell you about all the incredible stuff that has come out during the year. So once again, we’ve spent long hours playing and assessing a number of fabulous choices from a variety of categories that will help you decide what should go at the top of your holiday shopping list. It was hard work, playing all these games for you, but the results are worth it, and hopefully it will make your crunch time less crunchy. You can download the guide in .pdf format for printing, or you’re welcome to stop by the store for a glossy, lovely hard copy to thumb through. And keep in mind that these suggestions are only the very tip of the iceberg. We’ve got you covered, regardless of what’s in the pink section this year. So don’t be afraid to give us a call or stop in and let us guide you in the right direction for the best games of the year!
With Great Thanks, your FLGS crew wishes you
a very happy Start-o-the-Holidays!
