As we go into our third (!!) month of business, it seemed like a good time to write a post about what all has been and will be going on in our store.
Currently we’re taking pre-orders for Modern Masters 2017 at $200 a box (release Mar 17, MSRP $239.76). If you’ve seen the spoilers, you know there’s some really exciting cards in this upcoming set. Liliana of the Veil, Zendikar fetchlands, and Damnation are being reprinted, along with returning classics Tarmogoyf, Gifts Ungiven, and Blood Moon
We’re also taking pre-orders for the new D&D sourcebook Tales from the Yawning Portal for $40 (release Mar 24, MSRP $49.95). It’s an update to some classic modules from the past, such as White Plume Mountain, Against the Giants and Tomb of Horrors. Designed to be used with your current campaign, it has adventures from 1st to 15th level.
We recently started a Magic:the Gathering Standard series, in support of the new set Aether Revolt. Running from Feb 15th through April 16th, it has some great prizes such as an Amonkhet booster box, Amonkhet bundle or free entry into an Amonkhet pre-release. Wizards is sponsoring a Standard Showdown to co-incide with Amonkhet and we plan on running that starting May 7th.
Along with the Standard series running every Wednesday and Sunday, we are also holding regular Commander/EDH nights on Thursday and Friday Night Magic draft every Friday. Tuesday nights we’ve been experimenting with different sorts of M:tG events, like Conspiracy 2 draft, Two-Headed Giant (2HG) or something different like Planechase or Chaos draft. We’re running an exciting chaos draft on March 7th so if you’ve always wanted to play Theros with Shadows Over Innistrad, M11, or Conspiracy 2, this might be your chance.
Wednesday and Sunday are our big days for D&D Adventurers League. Check out the Oregon Adventurers League Meetup to find out more and to RSVP. We have a limited number of slots so the best way to ensure you get a seat is to reserve a place.
As for other RPGs, Nick runs Monte Cook Games’ Cypher Play every other Saturday. It’s a great place to start if you’ve never played Numenera before and are interested in a rules-light, fantasy-futuristic setting 1 billion years in the future. We have a Shadowrun Missions group starting and would love to host a Star Wars or Pathfinder Society group. If you’re looking for play space, drop us a comment or message on Facebook.
