Well the heat is on folks. We’ll be hauling the heavyweight room cooler into the shop as soon as we get enough hands on deck. Until then, things might get a little swampy in the shop, but we’ll do our best to keep the breeze moving through. Now is the time to truly test your mettle at the game table. How well can you manage your resources when the heat is on?
Oh, before I forget, we will be open normal hours all next week. Independence Day does fall on a Wednesday though. Game night is still happening, but maybe we’ll end it a little early to go watch some light shows?
As for new product, we’ve got another slow week, thank goodness there are plenty of great games already. We did get in a new batch of Lego Minifigures though. Our restock of activity books also arrived with some perfect items for the summer travel plans: dot-to-dots for all ages, Sudoku books, and great adventure maze books.
On to the events. . . . .
Meaty Game Day: It has been a long month, but finally the last Saturday is here. So bring your heavy duty games to the shop tomorrow starting around 4pm. We know that sometimes it can be tough to decide which meaty games to play, so bring your favorites and maybe we’ll decide the winner with a game of CandyLand!
Descent 2nd Edition Previews: I was not a huge fan of the original Descent, mainly because I did not want to sink hundreds of dollars into all the expansions that truly made the game great. But I have to admit that I am pretty excited about the new edition since it packs so much more into one box, at a lower price, and with a refined rule set. If all goes well we will have a preview copy of the revised version by next weekend. We currently have organised games scheduled for Saturday July 7 and Sunday July 8 at 1pm. If you have any interest in fantasy adventuring, give this game a try. Imagine a board game version of Dungeons and Dragons, but with a really mean gamemaster!
Avacyn Restored Draft Tournament: Next Saturday, July 7, is Magic the Gathering tournament time. This will be the last tournament with the Avacyn Restored set before the 2013 core is released, so come throw some angels into battle!
