D20 Games 10th Anniversary Events start Aug 6th...
Ok, somehow, some way, we not only made it to 10 years of me having the store, but we also managed to survive last year!!! So in August, we are gonna party like it's... (ok..a little like it was last year, cause we are having to go back to masks indoors).
Big note...we're gonna keep the events sized nice and small to make sure everyone has plenty of room, so sign up fast, cause these will go quickly once everyone knows they are there. If we have a lot of people who can't get in, we'll add more events if we possibly can.
Magic--Every weekend is a prerelease that we missed last year. (we have more than we can stick into only one month, but this'll get us started. We are gonna do 13+ events, Jr. events, and events that are carefully mixed. Fun, sure...but also keeping safe. And we are gonna do giveaways for just a ton of promo cards...all winners this month.
We are gonna bring back one of our all time fav events, Two Headed Giants. This team version of Magic is perfect for buddies, couples, and parent-kid combos. It is a great way to get to share something that you (or your potential partner) loves in a very low pressure kinda way. These will be Saturdays, Starting at 3 pm. These will be with each of the "Prerelease" events till the last of the month when we do the higher cost Modern Horizons 2 events. For that THG Sat, we are gonna bring back one of our all time most popular events, Fat Pack Wars. (Each team has a member reach into the mystery box and pull out a pack that matches with a Fatpack from up to 7 years ago. We make sure the number of packs reaches 10, and they open all of those to make their two decks to play together. These could be Born of the Gods to Strixhaven...its all up to the fickle fingers of whoever pulls the pack.) (we will be bringing back single sales in the next week or so. We are also looking to start playing modern, commander, and standard as well, but those will start in a bit.)
(Oh yes...in terms of FNM...we are gonna hold on drafts until the safety settles down. In its place will be the sealed events.)
- Pokemon...We are just working on getting packs in stock for the kids to buy that aren't snapped up by the adult collectors. We will bring back the Pokemon league in a month or two when it is safe.
- D&D..we will start doing regular events again after this month, but we will do some special events for the anniversary, including a special all day event on the last Sunday of the month. This will have 4 tables of adventurers all working to an epic battle together at the end of the event. We did this once before, but it was back in 2013, so I think we are good to repeat it. ;-) We are also extremely well stocked on dice and D&D goodies that have been sitting there, waiting for people to come back in the store and find them, including full dice made of actual gemstone/semi-precious stone.
- Board games... oh my do we have a bunch of games we've saved up. We will have some serious quick sales on games from Cover your Assets to Gloomhaven. Keep an eye on Facebook and the D20 Twitter feed for our equivalent to Blue light specials. (if you're a kid, ask your parents. If you are a parent and don't get the reference, don't tell me so I won't have to admit my age. ;-) We will also be having a used board game mega sale, as well as a return of the mystery game loot bags.
(If you need to make room at home for more games, consider donating them to the women's shelter or any number of the hospitals, etc.)
