Third Eye Expeditions: Journey to Chult – join us for our 1st ever D&D Epic event this Saturday!


Third Eye Games & Hobbies is sponsoring a large expedition down to the mysterious peninsula called Chult. It is there that it was discovered that the necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger is located. 20 days have passed since the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Whole nations and entire civilized organizations are faltering due to the panic of the people. Will you accept the call and help put a stop to whomever is behind this nefarious plot?

Taking place within the Third Eye Tavern, a weekend long Adventurers League play event is happening on Saturday October 7th & Sunday October 8th. Players will be able to take any legal Adventurers League character and explore the exotic city of Port Nyanzaru and witness all that Chult has to offer!

The BETRAYAL AT BALDUR’S GATE Board Game releases this Saturday! Based on BETRAYAL AT HOUSE ON THE HILL!

We love it when the world of D&D comes to board games, and the folks at AVALON HILL did an incredible job with the new BETRAYAL AT BALDUR’S GATE Board Game!

The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur’s Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness! As players build and explore the iconic city’s dark alleys and deadly catacombs, they must work with their fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one-or possibly more-of them against each other. Was it a mind flayer’s psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused their allies to turn traitor? Players will have no choice but to keep their enemies close!

Based on the award-winning Betrayal at House on the Hill board game, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is sure to appeal to your board game and D&D players alike.

Tuesday Night Dungeons & Dragons returns! Introducing Third Eye’s D&D Arena!!!

The new YU-GI-OH Legendary Dragon Decks arrive this Friday! These are awesome!

Very few monsters are as popular and instantly recognizable as the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME’s many dragons! Be they magical, mechanical, or multi-dimensional, dragons capture the hearts and minds of Duelists everywhere as they decimate their opponents on the Dueling field. This holiday season, Duelists can get their hands on 3 unique Decks featuring some of the game’s most fearsome dragons, and brand-new cards to power up each in Legendary Dragon Decks!

Legendary Dragons of Atlantis!
The powers of the Legendary Dragons of Atlantis – Timaeus, Critias, and Hermos – were sealed into Spell Cards, used by Yugi, Kaiba, and Joey to fight against Dartz and The Seal of Orichalcos! The Eye of Timaeus, The Fang of Critias, and The Claw of Hermos are well-loved by Duelists everywhere for their ability to Fusion Summon a wide variety of unique monsters using only one material! All 3 Spells and all of their Fusions are included in this Deck inspired by Yugi’s final Duel against Dartz, as is a brand-new Fusion Monster born of The Eye of Timaeus and Yugi’s famed Dark Magician!

Cyber Dragons!
Many Duelists consider Cyber Dragon to be the most influential monster ever created, so it’s only natural that it’s earned the title of “legendary”! Cyber Dragon originally debuted in 2005’s Cybernetic Revolution along with 2 Fusion Monster forms Summoned by combining multiple Cyber Dragons together. Eleven years later in Breakers of Shadow, Cyber Dragon Infinity shocked the Dueling world with its incredible power and became a household name. This Deck is packed with the best that Cyber Dragon and its many Fusion and Xyz Monster forms have to offer along with a brand-new Fusion Monster!
Dimensional Dragons!

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V’s Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon sparked a series of Dragons that covered the entire spectrum of Extra Deck monster types, and threw in a Ritual Monster for good measure. Adaptability is the defining feature of the “Odd-Eyes” strategy, starting from Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon’s dual nature as a way to search other Pendulum Monsters from your Deck and a way to end Duels in a flash with its double-damage ability. This Deck fills the final gap in the “Odd-Eyes” arsenal with a brand new “Odd-Eyes” Pendulum Monster!

DICE MASTERS LEAGUE 2017 begins on THURSDAY 10/19/17!

Each Thursday, for 4 weeks, we will meet up and play 5 rounds in a competitive swiss tournament. Each win earns you a point and you want to have the most points at the end of the League.
Here’s where things get different: At the end of each event, the winner’s cards will all be added to the League Ban-List. This Ban-List will be cumulative so each week, more and more cards will be added and you’ll be challenged to come up with new solutions.

This year for the League we are adding a new twist: SIDEBOARD! This is a new format where you have some extra character cards on standby. In addition to your 8 cards and 20 dice, you can set aside 4 additional characters as your “sideboard.” After First player is determind, they will get to choose which, if any, of their team they would like to switch out with a character form their sideboard. Second player will also have the opportunity to switch things up after the first player does so. Both players must still have no more than 8 charcters and 20 dice among them before the match begins.

The League starts October 19th and runs for 4 weeks on Thursdays 7pm-10pm. The last week to earn points will be November 9. The eight players with the most points will play a double-elimination tourney on November 30th. The winner of this epic showdown will not only win a massive prize payout but also the honorary title of Master of Dice! Whether you’ve been playing for 2 years or 2 months (or less!) this is the perfect opportunity to really test your skills!

Third Eye Faithful, wanna score some sick loot and kill a ton of monsters along the way?

Join us for our weekly DUNGEONS & DRAGON’S ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE night, which is part of the Wizards of the Coast ORGANIZED PLAY network for DnD!

This Fall, we explore many realms as we play through the TOMB OF ANNIHILATION!

WHAT TO EXPECT: The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.

MORE ABOUT ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE: AL provides a running story line where the players actions determine the fate of the world. Every season of AL builds on the one prior of the players actions or in-actions. It is structured in such a way that players can drop in and out as desired but to witness and take part in the full campaign they should return weekly. With a worldwide community they can take their characters and play anywhere adventures league rules as follows. While there are some restrictions on character creation and rules variance, it allows a fair play across the board to allow the flexibility of travel and play.

Dice Masters Mondays returns next Monday with: Casual Play 10/9/17

We know that you’re all major DICE MASTERS fans, and we’ve decided to begin hosting a weekly Monday night DICE MASTERS event for you!

This week is an OPEN PLAY casual night. Test out new teams, face off against other Dice Masters and maybe even trade for some cool new cards!

WHAT IS DICE MASTERS? In Dice Masters, two players take the role of masterminds directing the actions of a team of powerful supers (represented by dice) to battle each other! Each turn, you’ll roll your dice to see what resources you have available, buy dice, send your team members into the field, and then strike at the enemy mastermind. Reduce the opposing mastermind’s life to zero, and save the day!

Dicemasters is a dice-building game (similar to deck-building card games) where players collect and assemble their team of character dice and battle in head-to-head gameplay.
