Join us for our first official Magic: the Gathering Pre-Release event – Khans of Tarkir Saturday 9/20 at 1:30 PM.

We’re really excited to finally be able to participate in this type of event!  Since we’re new and this is our first pre-release, we only have 40 pre-release packs.  That means we’re holding the one event and we only have room for 40 players.

Sign up now on our brand new Meetup page:  http://www.meetup.com/Meeples-Games-Gaming-Group/events/205632582/ or you can sign up in person at the store.  We’ll have a sign up sheet at the front counter.

This is a sealed deck event.  The event itself has no entry fee, but you buy the pre-release pack.

This is a big event for us.  Our current status with Wizards of the Coast is ‘Core’ and we want to advance to ‘Advanced’.  The only outstanding requirement is that we need to hold an event with 32 or more attendees.  Come help us meet this goal!  If we make it to advance, we’ll get better prize support, give aways, and more of the product that you want.

Factions:

Abzan: Strong, weathered warriors who use Green, White, and Black mana

Jeskai: Nimble monks and cunning students who harness White, Blue, and Red mana

Sultai: Opulent and wealthy necromancers who utilize Blue, Black, and Green mana

Mardu: A swift and bloodthirsty horde powered by Black, Red, and White mana

Temur:  Ferociously savage nomads driven by Red, Green, and Blue mana

Meeples Games Gaming Group Meetup has been created!

by: on September 6, 2014  |   1 Reply

In order to better manage our event calendar to include reminders, signups, etc (and at the suggestion of other game store owners), I’ve created a Meetup Group to post our events.  You can sign up here http://www.meetup.com/Meeples-Games-Gaming-Group/  The name’s a mouthful… Meeples Games Gaming Group!

If you’ve used Meetup before, you’ll know that it’s a great way to know what’s happening and get reminders for the things you want to attend.  You can manage the email options so you don’t get innundated, so don’t worry about that.

I’ll be adding our recurring events over the next few days, so check back for your events!

We’re going to use this in addition to the calenedar on this site.  Go check it out!  It’s free to join and you might find some other groups that interest you!

Join us for Home School Game Day Every Monday

Now that school is in session, bring your home schoolers to Meeples Games on Mondays between 11:30 and 2:00 to grab some lunch and get their game on!  There’s no denying that tabletop games are great for kids promoting not only bonding and social skills, but also reading, math, learning to win and lose gracefully and exercising complex reasoning and spacial skills.  All while having a great time!

We have a wide variety of games for ages 5-12, a few for kids younger than 5 and a whole lot of games for those 10 and up!

We’re starting on Monday 9/8 and will have this event weekly.  Here’s a link to the event:  Home School Game Day
