Hey Meeps!  They drawing for PAX tickets is tonight at 7:00 PM!  A pair of tickets for Monday September 1, 2014.

We’ll have one of the Pokemon kids pull the ticket.  You do not have to be present to win.  We will announce only the ticket number (not your name) on all of our media places – here on the website, on Facebook and Twitter.  And we’ll call you to let you know.

If the ticket is not claimed in some way – an email, or call of social media alert by Thursday at 3:00 PM, we’ll pull another ticket from the bucket.

Thanks to everyone for participating in our events and getting entered to win!

Good luck!





D&D Icons of the Realms Figures Draft Event

by: on August 26, 2014  |   (Leave a reply)

Brian had this great idea the other day.  We got in a bunch of the new WizKids D&D figure boxes.  These are super high quality D&D figures for use with the game.  I CAN’T WAIT to open one.  But… each box is a random set of four from the full set of 44.  So, you don’t know what you’ll get.

Brian’s idea is to have a draft with them.  If you’re not familiar with the concept of a draft, it works like this.  Each person buys one booster box ($15.99 MSRP).  We sit around a table and each person opens their box, picking one figure to keep and passing the rest to the left.  Then they pick one figure from the three that they get from the person on their right.  And so on until everyone has four figures.  Ideally, you’ll end up with the figures you want!

Let me know if you have any interest in doing this.  I’m planning on scheduling something in early September.  It won’t take long to do and we can do it before our Encounters sessions start.
