New Products! Week of 10/6/17

So much new stuff this week!!

Legend of the Five Rings Core Set

Fantasy Flight Games bought the rights to this game from AEG and reprinted it as a Living Card Game. Set in a fictional samurai land, this game has some of the most beautiful art. If you like card games, but aren’t looking to get into a CCG, this is good one to check out.



Pokemon Shining Legends

We have Elite Trainer boxes and Pikachu and Mewtwo Pin Boxes as well. Grab these limited edition packs before they’re gone!


Legend of the Five Rings Launch Event

Sunday, October 8th at 12:00pm
Come play some L5R and get some cool swag!

This will just be an open play scenario for people to try out the new stuff. Please bring your extra sets so we can have sets available for people to learn the game as well.

Each participant will receive a clan badge and lanyard (guaranteed 12 badges, hopefully we’ll get 4 kits like we asked for). We will also raffle off the alt art promos. Those who help teach new players or bring someone to teach the game to will guaranteed get an alt art promo.

$5 entry fee (free for preorder customers)
