We finally did it. We took the plunge. We’re forging ahead into the land of Magic Singles.
We’re starting out small – Selling and trading. We’ll branch out into buying once we get a handle on this part.
Come in and check out the case with great cards from the Khans of Tarkir set. Plus, we have a ton of commons, uncommons and rares!
Our Trader – Garrett (pictured below) will be here most days and early evenings and during the day on Saturday. His schedule is posted in the store.
Bring your cards and stop by!
We’ve added this great new game to the library. Come in and check it out! The graphics are AMAZING and the game play is interesting. By top game designer Bruno Cathala (known for Shadows over Camelot, Dice
Town, Cyclades, etc) From boardgamegeek.com:
“Abyss is a game of development, combination and collection in which players try to take control of strategic locations in an underwater city. To achieve this, players must develop on three levels: first by collecting allies, then using them to recruit Lords of the Abyss, who will then grant access to different parts of the city. Players acquire cards through a draft of sorts, and the Lords of the Abyss acquired on those cards grant special powers to the cardholder — but once you use the cards to acquire a location, that power is shut off, so players need to time their land grabs well in order to put themselves in the best position for when the game ends.”
We’re having a standard tournament in honor of Magic Game Day. We’ll have participation promo cards for everyone and some really lively play!
Get here early! Space is limited.
The Strange is a new RPG by Bruce Cordell (D&D) and Monte Cook both of Dungeons and Dragons fame. The game uses the same mechanics as Monte Cook’s previous game Numenera but adds multiple worlds (known as recursions in the game) into which players can travel and change.
From the website:
“Beneath the orbits and atoms of our natural universe lies a network of dark energy. Those who have learned to access and navigate this chaotic sea have discovered an almost endless set of “recursions” in the shoals of our Earth: Worlds with their own laws of reality, reflected from human experience or imagination, given form in the swirling Chaosphere of the Strange. Worlds teeming with life, with discovery, with incredible treasures, and with sudden death.”
Sounds really cool!
We have a few copies of the core book and players handbook in the store now. I’d love to get some interest going with this game. Maybe get the authors to come set us up with a game or find someone willing to GM. Regardless, you should check it out!
Worlds sometimes jealous of our own.
