Thank you all for giving me a great Black Friday! I need to ask my Arcane Legion and AT-43 players when is the best time to announce games?
Tuesday: I have forgotten everything I knew about Magic. If you challenge me to a game of Magic from 2PM to 6PM I will give you a FREE booster pack.
Wednesday night, the figure painters will be in the store doing what they do best.
Thursday, we will be playing Legends of the 5 Rings.
Friday, will be Friday Night Magic. I have my DCI number and am waiting to hear back from them about becoming an official location. If an official judge wants to drop in to help me out, that would be great.
Saturday morning at 10AM is Pokemon, we got a new player this week!
Noon is Monsterpocalypse - we have lots of prize support in the back!
At 3 there will be open play for L5R. Around 5 or 6 is open board games. Hopefully, someone will play my demo copy of "Shakespeare, the Bardgame."
Sunday December 13th will be a Flames of War tournament. This Sunday at noon you have one more chance to prepare your 1250 point army. A sign up sheet is available and the $10 tournament fee needs to be paid in advance.
Every table in the house was used
Dominion in the foreground, followed by Musketeers and Ticket to Ride Europe
Bob's Pirate game
Tuesday, we don't have a dedicated group for our new night yet.
Wednesday, the figure painters will be dazzled with a complete line of Vallejo paints.
Thursday, the store will be closed for Thanksgiving.
Friday, the store will open at noon and there will be hoopla. Most of the details are still being worked out.
The definite will be at 1:00 Bob Fanelli will be running a Pirate miniature game. The rules will be unique and quick to learn. Anyone can play without prior experience and everyone is welcome.
At 4 I'd like to see our Arcane Legion fans come in, but that is still a work in progress.
At 6 we will have open play for Magic.
Saturday morning at 10 will be Pokemon, this week we only had 2 players, I think we can do better!
Noon will be Monsterpocalypse and hopefully I'll have more units for you guys.
At 3 there will be open play for L5R. Around 5 or 6 we will start getting the board game people to come in and play some games, both new and old.
Sunday will be Flames of War, and open gaming.
Sunday December 13th will be a Flames of War tournament. 1250 points, late war. 3 scenarios will be chosen that morning. Our contact at BattleFront has said we will get prize support, and if we can get 12 people to play, it will be a regional qualifier. Cost will be $10 in advance, deadline will be Friday the 11th to register. A sign up sheet will be available in the store
The moment I opened the store I had a Pokemon player arrive. Shortly thereafter I had another and they began the battle.
So the question is, where is TripleAAA?
The facts that we know: 1250 points, late war, start at noon with timed rounds.
If we get 12 players, we will be a regional qualifier and offer $100 prize support.
If we get 6 players, we can still get prize support from Flames of War, but it will be less.
We had seven players for Legend of the Five Ring tonight, and a good time was had by all.
Wednesday, the figure painters will be in the store doing what they do best.
Thursday, we will be playing Legends of the 5 Rings. This week will be open play, hopefully for the following weeks I'll be able to organize a tournament.
Friday, will be Friday Night Magic. I registered with them, but haven't heard back yet. I'm pretty sure we can make it official.
Saturday morning at 10 will be Pokemon, if we get enough players. Noon will be an actual Monsterpocalypse tournament (everyone can thank Stewart for that). At 3 there will be open play for L5R. Around 5 or 6 we will start getting the board game people to come in and play some games, both new and old.
Sunday December 13th will be a Flames of War tournament. So, you might want to play this Sunday in preparation.
The store is open on Tuesdays now, and I have a few options, but we'll do whatever the crowd requests.
Friday people started arriving before the open sign was even out (or the cleaning was done). Several games were played, stuff was sold and it was all around a good day.
Saturday, people arrived as soon as the sign was out and we had a good stream of people coming and going.
Apparently, Sunday starts a bit slower...
I just sold a Deadlands: The Battle for Slaughter Gulch boardgame!
The store finally has a phone! 215-887-9550
