Eternal Masters Preview

    Special D20 Award for Great Students

    Good gradesFor all the D20 kids (I do embrace my role as store dad), we’re proud of ya.  We started a program in June of 2015 to add a bit of an extra smile for all those who worked so hard. From now on we will do a special award at the end of each school semester for those hard work is paying off.
    Bring in your report card (with a parent)and you get a much better deal then our usual, buy 6, get one deal…
    • 3.0 gpa or higher: buy one pack, second pack is $2!! (or show a report card with one from the previous semester with 3 or more grades showing a full grade improvement)
    • 3.5 gpa or higher, buy one pack,second pack is $1!!! (or show a previous report card with 4 or more grades improving by at least a full grade)
    • 4.0 gpa or higher, buy one pack and the second pack is $0!!!!! (or show at least 6 full grade levels of improvement in at least 3 areas)
    • OR…The Awesome Improvement Award for working hard and bringing a lot of grades up (bring the previous semester’s report card with the new one to show the improvement):
      •  3 or more grades showing a full grade improvement- buy one pack, second pack is $2!!
      • 4 or more grades improving by at least a full grade, buy one pack,second pack is $1!!!
      • 6 full grade levels of improvement in at least 3 areas, buy one pack and the second pack is $0!!!!!
    (These are all for regular $4 packs…, I do want the parent coming in with this, just to keep things on the up and up.  We need to see the report cards within 3 weeks the end of each semester to be eligible.)
    The best reward for this is feeling awesome that you’re work paid off and knowing what you can do.  This is just a little reward on top of that. -Ben

    Announcements

    Jace, the Mind SculptorHey folks…coming in two weeks (June 10th) Magic Eternal Masters…They’ve started spoiling this one and all we can say is “oh my!”  I will sell a limited number of boxes to regular customers at $349.99 ($10 discount off of that for our super regular customers) until we find out for real and true how many boxes we will get.  The set has an insane amount of high value cards in it to trick out legacy, Commander and just plain anything goes decks and the per pack price will probable end up in the $15 plus range.  We will keep as many as we can for playing with, and will bring back sealed league play as the way to extend the fun. ($75 for 6 packs to start, and option to add a pack a week for 4 weeks at $11 per pack…way below what we’ll be selling them for.)  We will also be giving the option for the other sealed events to drop the price for each player in exchange for opting for regular packs rather then Eternal masters as the prizes, just to keep playing with the set as affordable as we can.
