Magic the Gathering Commander 2017 is Coming 8/25!

by: on August 14, 2017  |  

Magic the Gathering Commander 2017 is Coming 8/25!  Get your Preorders in today!

Commander returns with four new tribal-themed, 100-card decks, featuring 56 all-new Magic cards legal in Eternal formats (Vintage and Legacy). Cards from Commander (2017 Edition) will be featured and distributed in connection with a future offering on Magic Online.

Commander is an exciting, unique way to play Magic that is all about awesome legendary creatures, big plays, and battling your friends in epic multiplayer games! In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!

These Commander decks introduce an ability called eminence that lets your commander lead from the command zone, even before they have entered the battlefield. The eminence ability appears on characters from all parts of Magic lore, allowing you to call on the power and skill of some of the best leaders in the Multiverse.

There are four decks in this series:

  • Draconic Domination
  • Feline Ferocity
  • Vampiric Bloodlust
  • Arcane Wizardry

New Library Game – Flatline!

by: on   |  

We love the game Fuse which is currently in our Game Library.  It’s fast, fun and cooperative.  Flatline is the next cooperative game from Renegade Game Studios.  In Flatline, you are futuristic emergency room docs with patients to treat.  The power is failing, you have a very short time to treat everyone before the power goes out!  No pressure!!

Flatline is new to our game library and has a whopping 7.7 rating on boardgamegeek.com

Check out this review from Geek & Sundry

Did I mention the cool dice?  Lots and lots of cool dice!

 

 

 

 

Pokemon Prerelease and West Seattle Grand Parade this Saturday!

by: on July 21, 2017  |  

For those of you attending the Pokemon Prerelease this Saturday (7/22 10:oo am), the West Seattle Grand Parade is happening the same day and runs right past Meeples Games!

This is pretty exciting because we love the parade and you can watch the action from our balcony.  But, it can make parking a challenge because the streets are restricted.  There is still plenty of parking, you just have to go a few blocks away from California.

It’s going to be a fun Saturday!
