This Week’s Game Spotlights at Third Eye for 12/2/15!

Meet the Makers at our Third Eye Showcase featuring DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND this Saturday!

Hey Third Eye Faithful, we love a good board game, and we love supporting new games — so when Dax Christopher and his company got in touch with us about their upcoming new board game, DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, we knew we had to do something special to show it off to you!

What’s DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND all about?

Imagine the mature themes of CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY mixed with fun of LORDS OF VEGAS!

What happens when you and 2-5 of your friends have to survive a weekend in the world’s most diabolical city while trying to be the one with the most money when it’s over?

Prepare to use money, wits, people, and a dash of good, old-fashioned luck as you swindle, bribe, steal, and kill your way to the top! With an endless number of strategies to employ, pitfalls to avoid, and ways to make money, Devil’s Playground ensures that you’ll have every opportunity to be the worst person you can be!

LEARN TO PLAY AT OUR SHOWCASE!
The designers of DEVILS PLAYGROUND will be on-hand to demo and teach you how to play the game, as well as run folks through the game!

PURCHASE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND for the first time ever at our special event, and you can get it signed by the game designers who made it happen!

We’ll have plenty of copies of DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND available for you to scoop — and trust us, with the holidays coming up, this is a great gift for those gamers in your house who have it all!

Tons of new STAR WARS ARMADA expansions arrive this week!

We love all the cool stuff Fantasy Flight has been doing with the STAR WARS license in the last few years, and the new ARMADA game system is one of our favorites.

This week, we’ve got some great new ARMADA models dropping, including the STAR DESTROYER, Admiral Ackbar’s HOME ONE, the MC30c Frigate, and much more!

Never played ARMADA? This two-player game of epic capital ship-centric space battles is a must-play!

Massive Star Destroyers fly to battle against Rebel corvettes and frigates. Banks of turbolasers unleash torrential volleys of fire against squadrons of X-wings and TIEs. Engineering teams race to route additional power to failing shields. Laser blasts and explosions flare across the battlefield. Even a single ship can change the tide of battle.

In Star Wars: Armada, you assume the role of fleet admiral, serving with either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. It’s your job to issue the tactical commands that will decide the course of battle and, perhaps, the fate of the galaxy.


We’re almost CORE level with the Wizards Play Network – bring some friends & help us get there this weekend at our next NOT QUITE FRIDAY NIGHT MAGIC Event!

Sooo… we’re in that weird “growing your hair out” stage, where we’re not quite sanctioned with all the bells and whistles, but are considered a Gateway store — but, hey: it’s still gonna be a ton of fun!

C’mon out, play some MTG in a fun and casual environment, and help us continue to build our MTG events at Third Eye!

We’ve made a few tweaks to ensure things move a little quicker, and a lot smoother — and, heck, we’ve even freed up some more space to give you some breathing room!

DEAD OF WINTER is BACK! Rejoice!

Crossroads is a new series from Plaid Hat Games that tests a group of survivors’ ability to work together and stay alive while facing crises and challenges from both outside and inside.

Dead of Winter is the first game in this series, designed by Isaac Vega and Jon Gilmour. It puts 2-5 players together in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity are either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.

This game has been going in and out of stock like mad, but we’ve got a big stack of ’em in stock now to hook you up!


BLOOD RAGE delivers VIKING Mayhem from the creators of ZOMBICIDE with the BLOOD RAGE: Core Game Box!

From Guillotine Games, the studio that brought you Zombicide, comes the ultimate Viking saga. Blood Rage is a Viking board game created by acclaimed game designer Eric M. Lang.

In this fast-paced yet highly strategic game, 2 to 4 players take control of Viking clans, invading, pillaging, and battling in a quest to gain as much glory as possible before Ragnarok finally consumes the land!

The game’s striking visuals are a combination of Adrian Smith’s highly evocative artwork, and Mike McVey’s amazingly detailed miniatures. Blood Rage comes with 46 pre-assembled miniatures, including some huge and impressive legendary monsters.


SHADOWS OVER NORMANDIE arrives this week from IELLO, and it’s totally awesome! War gaming meets Cthulhu!

Very cool new board game from the fine folks at IELLO and DEVIL PIG GAMES, Shadows over Normandie features three opposing armies that players can choose!

These forces include the German Cult of the Black Sun, the ancient Deep Ones and the US Rangers.

Each force is made up of infantry, tanks or creatures and of course, heroes and villains.

Each unit has its own set of unique characteristics and skills depicted on the high quality chunky tokens.
