Time for a round up of what’s going on at Rune & Board this September! We’re returning to Rose City Comic Con this year and will be near where we were last year, between Artist Alley and Rose City Jr. Find us in booth #1050 – we’re handing out discount cards good for purchases in store, so be sure to stop by.
A new D&D book is coming in September: Baldur’s Gate: Descent to Avernus will be available Sept 17, and we’re taking pre-orders for the alternate cover. This is a new campaign book that takes characters from level 1-13 as they travel through Avernus, the first level of Hell. It’s the first campaign book to take place in fan-favorite Baldur’s Gate so we’re hoping it provides more detail for the city itself for future adventures.
We’re gearing up for the next Magic: the Gathering pre-release later this month. Throne of Eldrane is inspired by fairy tales and Arthurian legends, with lots of us hoping for more fairies. We’ll be running pre-release events Sept 27, 28, and 29. Keep an eye on our calendar or Facebook page for details and times.
Earlier this year we started selling Cardfight!! Vanguard, a Japanese card game based on an anime and manga series, and so have added open play on Sundays to our calendar, starting Sept 22. If you have played YuGiOh or Pokemon, you may like Cardfight!! Players start with a pre-constructed deck and can add new cards with additional booster packs so it’s easy to get started.
Our continuing events include Open Play for the A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game on Friday nights, along with our regular FNM Standard and Draft events. If you play M:tG Pauper, we have casual tournaments Tuesdays, with $3 to join the event, and packs going to 1st and 2nd place. And with the release of Pathfinder Second Edition, we have occasional events posted on our Warhorn page. Hopefully with increased interest, we’ll have more events in the future.
