This Thursday is BOARD GAME NIGHT featuring SMASH UP hosted by Third Eye Ben!

We LOVE helping you discover your next favorite game, Third Eye Faithful, and this week we’re showing off one of our favorites with SMASH UP!

Third Eye Ben will be on hand running demos and teaching you how to play one of our favorite TableTop games here at Third Eye!

What’s SMASH UP ? Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the all-new Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group.  In Smash Up players take two factions, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine their decks into a force to be reckoned with!

The Smash Up core game features 8 distinct factions that you can mix and match to defeat your opponents.

PIRATES move cards around the table keeping your opponents unbalanced.

Ninja strike from the shadows and steal victories from under enemies.

Zombies refuse to stay in the discard pile, continually returning to the fight.

Robots churn themselves off the factory line with frightening efficiency.

Dinosaurs (with lasers) bring stunning power to the fight, dwarfing their opposition.

Wizards use their arcane knowledge to secure whatever  cards you may need at the time.

Tricksters use their mischievous nature to make life extremely difficult for opponents.

Aliens change the very nature of the battle, moving enemies about, and manipulating the Base cards you fight for.

Combine these groups into teams of two for various effects!  Smash Up contains 16 Base cards to compete over.

One of our favorite games – this is a quick, easy to play piece of awesome that will be a hit at your next TABLETOP party!

And, hey if you end up loving the game, we’ll let you take home a copy for 15% off the normal price!

The NEW SMASH UP IT’S YOUR FAULT Expansion is here!

As you may have already guessed, we’re pretty big fans of Paul Peterson’s SMASH UP, so when we saw a new expansion for the game was hitting this week, we knew we had to give you a heads up!

All four factions in this box were the top of thousands of nominations, and then survived a bracket vote, all to get to you today!

Smash Up: Its Your Fault includes Sharks, who plan to make chum of their opponents. Also inside you’ll find Superheroes, flying off the comics page to defeat enemies. You chose to bring the legends of Greek Myth to the table, and finally the imposing might and destructive power of Dragons!

Smash Up: It’s Your Fault continues the exciting fun of Smash Up with four factions chosen by the fans themselves. With direct input on the crazy decks, including Sharks and Dragons, fans of Smash Up will not want to miss this set.

 


Big restock of Hyperkin Consoles & Accessories!

We got in a big restock of RETRON5s (you know, the system that plays like a billion different old school game formats!), as well as a ton of fun accessories, including things like link cables, extension cables for your old school controllers, memory cards, jumper packs and more!

Come by & check out all the goodies!

 

 

 


UGLYDOLL LOONACY ARRIVES FROM FLUXX CREATORS LOONEY LABS THIS WEEK!

We are huge fans of all things LOONEY LABS, and we’re totally pumped for this next big addition to their LOONACY line-up!

Uglydoll Loonacy is a rapid-fire game where players race to be the first to empty their hand of 7 cards by matching one of two images with the images on the open piles in front of them. Speed of the hand and luck of the draw determine the winner in this frenzied free-for-all! Remember: always be ugly!

 

 


Join us next Monday 3/14 for our weekly HEROCLIX session featuring RELICS GALORE!

Bring up to 300 points of figures from home and pair with contents of a single sealed booster to form a 400 point team.

Build restrictions: No entities, no resources, no team bases, no vehicles, no relics from home

Special rules: Special rules in effect that each team gets to pick a relic from the Third Eye relic pool and place it on the map for free (in addition to their 3 objects of choice). At the end of the game, if a relic brought in from these special rules was picked up and equipped (must make the roll) and the equipped figure is not KO’d, then you get to keep the relic and use it for no cost in your next game. At the end of the night, after 1st, 2nd, and Fellowship are determined, if there are any participants who didn’t win a figure or any relics during gameplay, they may pick one from the relic prize pool.
