Updates

D20 Update–Impt.Events & hours changes for (& after) Holidays.

Hey folks, a few big(ish) annoucements.

  • From now on, look for us to be open for special kid events on most early dismissal days. (Not this week…personal business.)  We will post special openings on the site and through our update emails. (to get on the list, email us at info at d20alameda.com.)
  • Coming:  We’re creating a gift recommendation list for different levels of Magic, Yugioh and game players.  We will also announce a special few days where we will be open during the school day for parents who want to come in while the kids are safely tucked away at school.  While we do need to sell things to stay in business, we do take pride in making sure that we stock good stuff and make appropriate and trust worthy recommendations.
  • After Thanksgiving:
    • We will be moving Friday Date Night Magic to Saturday.  (This is for kids age 9-14.)We will start it at 5:30 (5 for pizza).  Advanced (and very well behaved) kids can join on Friday for Friday night magic at 6:15.
    • Moving Kids Yugioh (the Duelist League for age 14 and younger) from Sunday to Saturday.  We will both do the Duelist League at 2:30 for $5 entry fee and Yugioh Date Night also at 5:30 (5 for Pizza and a drink for $5 more.)  We are doing to give more space (and frankly peace) for the kids and the adults.  We will do Duelist League for a few weeks in between Thanksgiving and Xmas to give kids a chance to learn about the change who doen’t check the website, but after the new year, that will be the new times.
