by Ben Calica

Updates: Holiday hours Great stuff for the last minute adds and stuffers with two great bonues..one for you and for you to get some extra good done. We hid away some great Pokémon so it could be here for gifts, not only snatched up by the hordes.  Hours for the holiday will be: 12/23 open till 10 pm. (door will be closed cause it's closed, but knock and come on in.12/24 open 10 till 4 (well probably be open longer, but folks tend to stop shopping by then.  If you need last minute things, give the store a call, We'll answer as long as we are there. 12/25 Closed (happy holiday) Sale stuff: Both for Gifts and for playing together during the annoyingly rainy holiday.  (Dreaming of a wet xmas? Don't think so..) Two fun things: Once you commit to your purchase, you get to roll 3 D6 and get that as a bonus discount.  (We'll make anything below a 10 into 10, to make sure it is always at least that much.) You buy and we give too (Every $50 spent, we will give $10 worth of games to the Midway Woman's Shelter* (*Many women need to leave in the middle of the night, often grabbing what they can.  We find games that will be good for giving some mental respite and maybe a bit of fun for families in a frequently intensely tough situation. ) We have a bunch of great games both to add under the tree, and for fun things to do in the rain over the holiday that don't involve mind melding with screens. (preview hint...on the first, I'll be lobbying for people to build face to face family/friend game time into a regular weekly thing...with phones in a bucket for a couple of hours a week.) Pokémon in stock..

Closed on Thanksgiving day, (but save some gift $$ for us)

Closed on Thanksgiving day, (but save some gift $$ for us)

by Ben Calica Store news

If you've been a customers with us for a while, you know that every year I do the same stupid thing and try to get people to stop feeling the need to take away time on a holiday to friggin go shopping.  I know from the business side, taking advantage of being part of a great conspiracy (really, that is the correct use of that for once) to get consumer's whipped into a frenzy is smart.  But it ain't what we believe in.   So instead, I'm going to ask you to set aside some percentage of your fun gift purchasing to do with us. We're gonna be closed on Thanksgiving, but open starting 12 on Friday.  Our sales will go on for at least a week, so you don't need to rush. I'll announce what the sales will be like on Friday,  and keep an updated list of goodies that we decide to add every day for the next couple of weeks, but I will give one big hint.  We're gonna have a return of the mystery loot bags, and we have a really great set of new stuff to put in 'em,  A ton of great games, excellent magic loot bags and some great D&D surprises.  I won't tell you how much to send in our direction, but know, we will appreciate everything you can and will work like bandits to make sure you get as much fun per dollar as we possibly can. And meantime....have a good Thanksgiving...whatever else has happened, we all have some real reasons to be thankful this year. Oh, and I'd like to a propose a new tradition.  In addition to saying what you are thankful for this year, say what you want to be thankful for next year that you can help happen.  It matters more than we might think... -Ben (Store owner guy) Some of the games to go into Game Mystery Loot Bags .

Crimson Vow @ D20 Games

Crimson Vow @ D20 Games

by Ben Calica Crimson Vow, MTG, Prerelease

What wears white, wears black, and loves the reds (but does not drink...wine)? Upcoming Events: 11/12 Friday 6:30 Sealed 11/13  (Sat.) Sat 10 am. Sealed Sat 4 pm Two Headed Giant 11/14 Sun, 10am Sealed The same a week later for the release events. All events are sealed using the prerelease kits (6packs, plus foil mythic or rare randomized promo card).  Make your best decks and win a pack, win a round.   If we have enough to do both, we will also do competitive on Sat am (More chance to win lots of packs if you do very well, but more rounds and the chance to win no prize packs if you don't. Better for more expert players.) Seating will still be more limited to keep things covid safe.  Masks and Vax cards are required.  Can't have the under 12 year old's  play yet, but we are getting close as they get a chance to get vaxed as well!!  The prerelease and release events are great chances for players who haven't gotten a chance to play in person to come to a firendly, fun event where everyone is starting from scratch and no one "knows" much more than anyone else yet.  The best event for new players are the two headed giants.  These are two person team events, so as long as one person knows how to play, the other can get as much as they need from them, without feeling any pressure to know the rules right away.   Innistrad Crimson Vow is the 2nd in a 3 block set! (been a long time for that).  If the last went to the wolves, this one goes to the vamps, including the (undead) man himself.  The Big Bad is taking a backseat to the Big Vlad. ​Here are the mechanics for the new set.

Return of Drafting @ D20 (plus pokemon

Return of Drafting @ D20 (plus pokemon

by Ben Calica D&D, MTG, Store news

Hey folks.... A few event updates of significance.. Return of drafts for FNM Two Headed Giant on Sat moves from 3pm to 4pm start time.  D&D is coming back...   Return of Drafting for FNM: Starting 10/22 we will experimenting with doing drafts again for Friday Night Magic.  We'll be pulling out the plastic tablecloths (the ones we used for birthdays) so we can sanitize them in between rounds, and we will have everyone sanitize hands before they start drafting (and have a no drinks or anything that will get hands next to a mouth during the drafting process).  If I think this is going well, this is what we will do from now on. We have also raised the price of the drafts to $20. (The packs have gotten more expensive and we have a much more limited number of players we can have for the events so we really need every dollar we can to start to clime out of the joy and fun of last year).  But I'm going to do this. For all of our old players, if you also were pushed to the limit from last year or just can't afford the price increase, tell us at the counter and we'll let you keep doing the old $15 for at least the next few months.   Two Headed Giants moving from 3-4 on Saturdays: We're shifting the time for the two headed giants back to the old time of 4pm, so it returns it to being more of a date night, evening fun activity. This really is one of our favorite events and we will be doing it consistantly to get it back up and running.  (Still have to have the 12+ age limit, but as soon as the vaccination for the younger folks comes in, we'll happily open the doors to let them back). D&D in person is starting back up: This Sunday (10/24) is going to be Dan's return to DMing events in the store.  The time will be 2-7 and will be limited to 7 players.  This event will be a 4 session run and should be good fun. This is for players with some experience playing, not a first time event. $20 pers session (and if you want to come to all 4, probably best to get tix in advance) "We will be doing a Dungeon  Crawl into an Abandoned Dwarven Keep . Players Should Create a Level 5 Character using Standard array or the pound buy system in the players hand book.  Players will have standard starting equipment as well as any 1 Uncommon Magic item of their choice.  Any Player resources and books printed by Wizards of the Cost will be allowed including unearthed arcana." Starting in about a week we will start doing Weds D&D and after that, late night Saturday Pokémon: Pokémon continues to be in extremely short supply.  We are continuing to let 12 and younger kids buy 1 pack a day at the old 3.99 price so they don't get totally overrun by the adults who are snapping everything up. I'm sorry for not having preorders for all the higher end stuff, but we don't know until the last minute what will come in.  If you want Pokémon gifts for the holidays, I really reeaally recommend getting them now. The supply chain is truly messed up and hits this stuff hard.  Hope to see you this week and as always...seriously thanks for shopping local. Ben P.S.  We will be spreading out sales/offerings over November so we don't have to get people to waste part of their vacation running around shopping.
