So we have a lot going on this weekend, including the release for Journey Into Nyx, and the Prerelease for Pokemon XY Flashfire.
And this weekend we will be hosting the Prerelease for the newest set for Pokemon, XY Flashfire….
The Screen Free Week Challenge: And finally…This is a big one for me (and I am a Dad, so I know the struggle). Kids….I have a challenge for you. Get your family to go screen free for one whole week! For those who are able to do it, (and get their parents to verify they all did it,) I will be giving away up to 100 free packs for Magic or Pokemon packs (1 per family..two if they do a family game night).
I know this is super hard, but it It’s amazing what happens when you shut the screens off, let boredom take hold for a little bit and then reach out to see what you can find to fill that void. I know I’m the game guy, and I would love to see parents commit to coming home and clearing the space one night next week to do a family game night. But outside of that, just see what it feels like to do some of the things there never seems to be time to do.
To do my part in this…I’m going to have a sheet in the store, and one to print online that is a pledge/verification card that will also include a place to list all the things you got to do during that time, and any family that can make it through the week with no video, computer games, ipad or other non-work related screen time, I will give them a gift of a free pack of either Pokemon or Magic, or a $5 off coupon for any game that is $19.99 or more for the first 100 kids (no more then 1 per family. If there are more then one…I’ll give the parents a chance to by more at 1/2 off.) (Parents, I’m counting on you to make this honest. Parents will need to come in with the kids and the filled out form between May 13th-23rd)
