Join us for the Fate Reforged Prerelease! Pre-registration is NOW open for prerelease events, happening on January 17 and 18. We’ll have maximum prizes, sweet promos, yummy pizza, and of course, awesome people :) Events will be held:

At the Fate Reforged prerelease, players choose their clan. While they complete three achievements, they follow in Sarkhan’s footsteps to attempt to alter fate; they get to “Heal Ugin” and “Gain a glimpse of the future.” The latter comes in the form of a special “Ugin’s Fate” booster pack containing two alternate art cards that show how the world has changed in the new timeline, a token and a basic land card. There’s a pool of 40 alternate art cards with a holo foil stamp (mainly from Khans of Tarkir, a few from Fate Reforged, one mythic), the main change in the art being that there are dragons now. In addition, the basic lands also have alternate art, showing off Tarkir of the past. (Source)

Each event is $27for your Prerelease Pack , pizza, and prizes. EVERY player who completes all his/her rounds will receive 1 booster pack; top 3 players will win additional packs. Additional prizes from the shop will be given, too! Why should you pre-register?

  • So you have a guaranteed spot at the event! Day-of registration will be available, but only if spots are open, of course :)
  • You’ll have the best chance of getting your first choice color.
  • Save 3 bucks – day-of registration will be $30.

ABOUT FATE REFORGED:
Sarkhan Vol travels 1,280 years back in time, to change the moment that sealed Tarkir’s fate: the battle between Nicol Bolas and Ugin, the demise of the latter and all dragons of Tarkir (Crux of Fate). The clans still exist back in the time; they are not fighting each other but are constantly fending off the legion hordes of dragons that are terrorizing their world. Sarkhan meets khans of the past, like Yasova Dragonclaw. The history of Tarkir is rewritten. Read more by clicking here.

December FNM Promo

Hey there, Magic players: Due to administrative issues with Wizards, we do not have any December promos. We will still hold FNM through December, but will be giving out previous months’ promos. We’re really sorry for the bummer news :-/ We’re doing everything we can on our end to get things fixed in time for January’s FNM!

Special orders for the Holidays!

When it comes to special orders for the holidays, now is the best time to make them.  We have plenty of time to help you choose your items, check stock from our distributors, and ensure that we’ll have your books, games, and toys for the lowest possible price.  Here are some common special order items that we can help you with:

Games & gaming accessories: Exotic boardgames, fancy die, starter and event decks, expansion packs, Magic: the Gathering rares, miniatures, rulebooks, deck sleeves and boxes, play mats.

Toys: Pop! Vinyls, tokidoki blind boxes, action figures, lunchboxes, My Little Pony, blind bags.

Comic books:  Single issues to fill in a collection.  Whether it’s a recent run of comic books, or something older, we can order back issues from our distributor or track down out-of-print issues from a variety of sources.  Recent collections we’ve helped fill are Silver Surfer, Star Wars, Trinity War, Villains Month.

Variant issues:  Some comic book series print issues with a few different covers, called variants.  These are usually produced in smaller quantities than the regular cover and can become very collectible, and we’re happy to help track specific ones down.  Recent variants we’ve tracked down are Infinity, Kiss Kids, Red Sonya.

First printings:  The first time a comic book has been printed.  When a comic book is first produced, the publishers have to estimate the demand for that book.  Once the book hits the stores and demand can be determined more accurately, the publishers will print a second run of the book.  That first fun, called a first print, is often more sought after by readers, because they’re more rare.  We’ve helped track down first issues of Doctor Who, Joker’s Daughter, Spider-Man.

Trade paperbacks:  Collected volumes of a comic book series.  For series that have been around for 6+ months, we can order the story in a paperback volume, which typically collects 5-7 issues.  Trade paperbacks are usually read when the comic book series is current and still being written/drawn.  Some current popular trades are Saga, Morning Glories, Locke and Key, Walking Dead.

Hardcovers: Hardcovers are collected volumes similar to trade paperbacks, but presented in a more collectible, attractive manner.  Hardcovers either collect a larger volume of issues than a trade (10-12 issues vs. 5-7 issues) or are produced when a series is complete.  In either case, the larger-sized pages displays bigger art and they look really nice on the bookshelf :)  Popular hardcovers in the shop are Earth 2, Y the Last Man, Walking Dead, Watchmen.

Graphic novels: Contained stories within one book.  Unlike trade paperbacks, graphic novels are self-contained stories within one book, and in most cases are available in paperback or hardcover.  Popular graphic novels are Batman: The Killing Joke, Stephen King’s Dark Tower, Boondock Saints.

Compendium/Omnibus:  A massive collection of a comic book series.  These are trade paperbacks on steroids, collecting 20-100 issues into a series, presented in paperback form or hardcover.  Some of the more collectible versions of these are produced in an extra-large format, displaying the art beautifully, and come in a case.

Please contact at the shop with any questions, or if you need help with suggestions and  recommendations!
