Pokemon Lost Thunder, Final Fantasy Opus VII and More

The end of October will be a busy one at Rune & Board. October 20th we’ll be hosting a Pokémon Lost Thunder prerelease. Lost Thunder will be the largest Pokémon set yet, with over 200 cards, including new GX and Ultra Beasts. Many of the cards have never been printed in English, so it should be an exciting addition. Preregistration starts at 12:00, $25 entry fee with a guarantee of 3 prize packs per person plus additional prizes.

Our Final Fantasy Opus VII prerelease is October 27th, from 3pm to 6pm. Entry fee is $29. Opus VII will be adding cards from Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates, Brave Exvius and Final Fantasy Legends. We’re taking pre-registration now.

That same weekend (October 26th – 28th) is Kumoricon, Portland’s own Anime convention. Rune & Board is sponsoring the D&D Open, so keep an eye out for us around the D&D tables.

Looking towards November, Ravnica Weekend is November 11th. Part of a crossover event for Guilds of Ravnica and the new Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica, we’ll be running a special adventure to go with the launch of the new book as well as 4-pack drafts. If you’re interested in running the adventure in store, please let us know. We’re taking pre-orders now for the Guildmaster’s Guide at $44.95.
