I don't have any good way to say this, so I'll just come out with it, Unplugged Games is closing as of September 30, we've had a good run, but for various reasons we are choosing to pursue other goals.
Until then, we will be running our events and tournaments as usual with the exception of the Khans of Tarkhir Pre-Release, which we shall not be taking part in.
We are also running a sale for the last month of operation, effective immediately almost all product will be 25% off, exceptions are food/drink, Magic singles, and Magic booster packs, everything else in the store is on discount.
We are also accepting offers on the fixtures and decorations, want the 8 ft Garruk standee? Now is your chance, need some tables and chairs? We have some pretty nice ones.
This is not a decision we made lightly, and not one we would have made had we another option, thank you all for your support during the last couple years, I had a lot of fun playing games with you all and I am sure I'll continue to see many of you around town at other events and tournaments.
And A Happy New Year
The new year is well and truly underway and Unplugged Games is still here! We are always improving, with new product on the shelf and more events being planned. Coming up here in just a couple weeks is Born of the Gods. This latest expansion for Magic: The Gathering continues the stories and themes started in Theros and we are running prerelease events February 1-2, in addition to the usual Sealed events happening at noon both days, we are also running our first Two-Headed Giant sealed event on the 1st at 6pm. As usual we'll have prizes for all who come in addition to those for the top finishers.
Also on the Magic front, we have begun a second booster draft day on Mondays at 6, entry fees for that are $12.00, also two leagues are underway: Saturdays we have Commander, and Sunday is Theros Sealed, soon to be Born of the Gods sealed.
Pathfinder Society is returning to Unplugged Games in February starting on the 13th, we are working to make this event exciting and fun for all who attend. We will have more on this soon.
Coming late February is Legend of the Five Rings! L5R is one of the old classics CCGs and is currently getting a little bit of a revamp, we've decided this is a good opportunity to bring it in and expose others to the game.
Tricks and Treats
It has been a hectic couple months here, school is back in, which means a farewell to some of our regulars, and a hello to many new ones, we expanded our in stock products a fair bit, and had yet another Magic release, this time it was Theros. That release went excellently, we tried a two day series of events and both were well attended, we are still small time compared to some of the other established stores, but we are making a mark anyway.
Soon we will have been open for a full year! Of course we are having a party, and of course you are invited, November 1st will be the anniversary day, which will have cake and a raffle in addition to our normal Friday Night events. Saturday the second will continue things with our local games showcase, this is an opportunity for local designers to show off their product to the public, if you are working on a game this is a great time to do some playtesting, if you have a finished product we'll be happy to try it out and give you some exposure.
Also this month is Warhammer 40k! We will start things off with a learn to play day on the 27th, followed by painting on the following week, and then beginning a Kill Team series of games after that, Kill Team is a very small scale style of play, almost a cross between a role-playing game and a wargame, and a good way to get into the hobby.
Magic is also not being left out, we are finally starting up the Unplugged Games EDH league! All you have to do to join is register your name with us and pay a $10 entry fee, then earn points by playing games at the store, at the end of November the top scorer will receive one of the new Commander decks being released by Wizards of the Coast this year.
