Hello everyone, and happy sun. We have a great weekend coming up with both a Magic draft tournament (Avacyn Restored) and, drum roll please, previews of Descent 2nd edition! The wait for 2nd edition Descent has been long, but from what we’ve seen so far it has been well worth it. I was not a big fan of the original Descent due to its fiddliness, but I am excited to experience the story and campaign driven 2nd edition with a refined ruleset. So if fantasy is your thing, stop on by this weekend to geek out.
Speaking of fantasy geeking, Small World Realms released this week, but unfortunately we will not have it in our hands until next week due to the holiday shipping schedule. Realms is an add-on to Small World that brings modular map tiles to the game, as well as story-based games that rely on accomplishing specific goals rather than just grabbing up territory. Sounds very interesting, so more on that next week.
Game release news, however, is really dominated this week by two BIG re-releases: King of Tokyo and A Few Acres of Snow. Because of limited distribution, we are still trying to fill all of our preorders on these titles, but we should have a few extra copies of King of Tokyo for sale this weekend. Sadly, A Few Acres of Snow won’t be available until next week, and even then we’ll only have a few copies. If you would like either of these games let us know, because once this batch is gone we will likely not see them again until next year. Yes, these games are really that awesome! We have King of Tokyo for rent, and with an appropriate bribe I can pull my Few Acres off the private reserve shelf.
One new rental this week: Survive: Escape from Atlantis
Finally, our used game shelf is extremely thin right now, so if you have any games gathering dust, bring them in for some credit. See our web page for full buyback details.
Have a great weekend!
