This Week’s Game Spotlights at Third Eye for 3/30/16

 

Mark your calendars: our first ever PRE-RELEASE event for MAGIC THE GATHERING is THIS Friday night!

Pizza! Prizes! Heck, you can even get your photo with AVACYN THE PURIFIER! Oh yeah.. and, that weekend – Third Eye starts taking trade-ins on YOUR Magic cards!

Third Eye Faithful, we really appreciate the community you’ve been helping us build with our MAGIC THE GATHERING events, and we’re proud to say that it is THRIVING!

Our number one goal is to provide all players with a friendly, welcoming environment to have fun, and share their love of the game. We know we’re still taking baby steps each and every event, as we learn the things that work, and don’t work — and it’s because of YOU that these events continue to get better. Your advice, your enthusiasm, and your faithful support is what keeps us going!

So, we’re VERY excited to announce that we’ll be hosting our first ever MAGIC THE GATHERING Pre-Release event featuring one of the coolest sets we’ve seen yet: SHADOWS OVER INNISTRAD!

We’ll be starting the fun Friday night at 12:01AM, right after our FIRST FRIDAY FNM event, and then running tons of fun MAGIC THE GATHERING events ALL WEEKEND LONG!

This includes THREE pre-release tournaments, a special pre-release INNISTRAD intro pack event, and FAREWELL TO KHANS booster draft to send Khans off in style (heck, we’re getting a cake!).

So, that being said – you can read up on everything we’ve got planned, and RSVP for the event at the link below – please come out & help us make this one a lot of fun!

 THURSDAY NIGHT POKEMON begins on 4/7/16!

We had such an awesome time hosting you all for our big Intro to POKEMON event, and are absolutely pumped to get the Pokeball rolling again with weekly POKEMON nights at Third Eye!

While we’re not quite ready to get an official POKEMON League going, we’re working on putting things into motion to do so!
In the meantime, we want to help YOU, aspiring Pokemasters, to continue to learn the game, build your decks, and get ready to play in our official POKEMON League when it debuts this Summer!
Third Eye Faithful, Hailey, along with her team of volunteers will be helping us coordinate weekly casual Thursday Night Pokemon play sessions all through April to help you get ready!
These are the PERFECT events to come to, learn a bit about the game, and start playing! It’s also a great way to brush up on your skills, and perfect your decks before we begin our League play!

ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE: CURSE OF STRAHD CONTINUES TONIGHT AT THIRD EYE!

We’re SUPER excited for our weekly DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE game, and you know why, right, Third Eye Faithful?

It’s because we’re freakin’ beginning the newest season: CURSE OF STRAHD!

We’ve always had a softspot for RAVENLOFT DnD stuff, and man, STRAHD is shaping up to be some of the most exciting stuff Wizards has done yet with 5th edition!

Make sure you come out, warm up your dice, and take part in the fun!

HERE KITTY KITTY arrives this week, and it is AWESOME!

I swear: this’ll be the last cat game we pour praise upon for a minute.. well, OK, no promises, but seriously: this one really is the cat’s meow.

In HERE KITTY KITTY, Your neighborhood has a cat problem! The problem is that all those cats don’t belong to YOU! Everyone in the neighborhood wants to claim those adorable kitties for themselves.

Outwit your fellow feline aficionados as you lure cats onto your property, move cats into your house, and steal cats from your neighbors. All’s fair in love and cat collecting!

There are no blenders or explosions in this game, but if you use your “Catlike Reflexes” and avoid “Stray Dogs” and “Hairballs,” you might just “Land on Your Feet!”

This is a killer game, and is brought to you by the same folks who gave you super fun games like CASTLE PANIC and BEARS!


WARHAMMER is COMING to Third Eye! That’s right, Third Eye Faithful… we’re going to be hosting our first ever INTRO TO WARHAMMER 40,000 event, and we want YOU to help us make it awesome!

You know us, Third Eye Faithful – we like to hold off on doing anything until we know we can do it super fun, and super rad, and we’ve finally got a killer roll-out planned for WARHAMMER 40,000 at Third Eye!

On Saturday 4/19/16, we’ll be hosting a very special INTRO TO WARHAMMER 40K event, which is perfect for those of you who’ve never played the game before, and those of you who may have a few minis you need to dust off at home.

Either way, you come out, and we’ll have some stuff on-hand for you to start playing, and learning the game!

We’ll even be running special discounts on the killer new GAMES WORKSHOP START COLLECTING SETS!

And, if the event is popular enough, we’ll be rolling out regular WARHAMMER sessions each week!

STAR WARS REBELLION delivers the BEST Star Wars board game… pretty much ever.. this week! 🙂

So, two things we love: BOARD GAMES and STAR WARS.

Put the two together, and oh no – you’ve found our Kryptonite!

Seriously though, REBELLION is an amazing new board game perfect for you to whip out with your Star Wars fans around the house!

Star Wars: Rebellion is a board game of epic conflict between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance for two to four players!

Experience the Galactic Civil War like never before. In Rebellion, you control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. You must command starships, account for troop movements, and rally systems to your cause. Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that account for thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy’s most notable systems, Rebellion features a scope that is as large and sweeping as any Star Wars game before it.

Yet for all its grandiosity, Rebellion remains intensely personal, cinematic, and heroic. As much as your success depends upon the strength of your starships, vehicles, and troops, it depends upon the individual efforts of such notable characters as Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine. As civil war spreads throughout the galaxy, these leaders are invaluable to your efforts, and the secret missions they attempt will evoke many of the most inspiring moments from the classic trilogy. You might send Luke Skywalker to receive Jedi training on Dagobah or have Darth Vader spring a trap that freezes Han Solo in carbonite!


BORDERLAND PROVINCES arrives this week courtesy of PAIZO – compatible with PATHFINDER and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS!

 

 

Looking to spice up your DnD campaign? Paizo is teaming up with FROG GOD GAMES to deliver a very retro-inspired RPG setting designed by SWORDS & WIZARDY designer MATTHEW J. FINCH.

Set in the wake of a slowly declining grand empire, and a world that’s increasingly falling into ruin, the BORDERLAND PROVINCE is a great set of books that are compatible with your Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder game systems.

 


This Sunday is our weekly MAGIC THE GATHERING Commander Tournament! Come out & have fun with us! PLUS: the final day of our PRE-RELEASE fun!

We love giving you a dedicated space to play one of our favorite formats, Third Eye Faithful, and the fun continues this week with our weekly MAGIC THE GATHERING Commander Event! Swing by & check us out!

In addition to our weekly COMMANDER fun, we’ll have our final PRE-RELEASE event running 12PM-4PM that day! Don’t forget to sign-up for of our pre-release events at Friday Night Magic this week!
