A few event updates of significance..
- Return of drafts for FNM
- Two Headed Giant on Sat moves from 3pm to 4pm start time.
- D&D is coming back…
Return of Drafting for FNM:Starting 10/22 we will experimenting with doing drafts again for Friday Night Magic. We’ll be pulling out the plastic tablecloths (the ones we used for birthdays) so we can sanitize them in between rounds, and we will have everyone sanitize hands before they start drafting (and have a no drinks or anything that will get hands next to a mouth during the drafting process). If I think this is going well, this is what we will do from now on.
We have also raised the price of the drafts to $20. (The packs have gotten more expensive and we have a much more limited number of players we can have for the events so we really need every dollar we can to start to clime out of the joy and fun of last year). But I’m going to do this. For all of our old players, if you also were pushed to the limit from last year or just can’t afford the price increase, tell us at the counter and we’ll let you keep doing the old $15 for at least the next few months.
Two Headed Giants moving from 3-4 on Saturdays:
We’re shifting the time for the two headed giants back to the old time of 4pm, so it returns it to being more of a date night, evening fun activity. This really is one of our favorite events and we will be doing it consistantly to get it back up and running. (Still have to have the 12+ age limit, but as soon as the vaccination for the younger folks comes in, we’ll happily open the doors to let them back).
D&D in person is starting back up:
This Sunday (10/24) is going to be Dan’s return to DMing events in the store. The time will be 2-7 and will be limited to 7 players. This event will be a 4 session run and should be good fun. This is for players with some experience playing, not a first time event. $20 pers session (and if you want to come to all 4, probably best to get tix in advance)
“We will be doing a Dungeon Crawl into an Abandoned Dwarven Keep . Players Should Create a Level 5 Character using Standard array or the pound buy system in the players hand book. Players will have standard starting equipment as well as any 1 Uncommon Magic item of their choice. Any Player resources and books printed by Wizards of the Cost will be allowed including unearthed arcana.”
Starting in about a week we will start doing Weds D&D and after that, late night Saturday
Pokémon continues to be in extremely short supply. We are continuing to let 12 and younger kids buy 1 pack a day at the old 3.99 price so they don’t get totally overrun by the adults who are snapping everything up. I’m sorry for not having preorders for all the higher end stuff, but we don’t know until the last minute what will come in. If you want Pokémon gifts for the holidays, I really reeaally recommend getting them now. The supply chain is truly messed up and hits this stuff hard.
Hope to see you this week and as always…seriously thanks for shopping local.
P.S. We will be spreading out sales/offerings over November so we don’t have to get people to waste part of their vacation running around shopping.
