UnStable drops this Friday at Third Eye! Get in on one of the most over-the-top, and fun Magic the Gathering sets we’ve seen in a minute!!!! You KNOW you need this Squirrel!

Third Eye Faithful, if there’s one thing we know about our MTG community at Third Eye – you guys and gals have a lot of fun and have a great sense of humor, and the newest set — UnStable is the perfect way to get a little ridiculous the next time you draft!

Contraptions, Sprockets, CRANK! Counters?!? Only in Unstable can such genius exist! How and when your Contraptions are assembled may yield wildly varying results from game to game. Time to experiment!

Make sure you come see us this Friday to grab a booster box, or some packs, and try to scoop the Squirrel that everyone has gotta have!


Next Saturday 12/16/17 is our big UnStable Turbo Draft Event!

Third Eye Faithful, in celebration of the awesomeness that is UnStable we’re getting a whole lotta crazy with our big UnStable Turbo Draft Event!

Check out what we’ve got cooking with a day full of Turbo Draft awesomeness!

WHAT’S TURBO DRAFTING?: For six hours, we’ll start a new mini draft for every eight players who come in to play. There’ll be one round of play, and everyone who wins get a prize!

HOW TO PLAY: EASY! Register at the counter ($12) and once drafting begins everyone will get 3 UnStable booster packs. From there everyone will build their deck one at a time from the cards pulled from those packs.

NEVER DRAFTED BEFORE OR BRAND NEW TO THE GAME? No worries! Drafts are a great way to experience the game and Third Eye Dan will be there to help you learn everything you need to know.

WHAT’D YOU GET? Well, obviously you keep the cards you pull from your draft packs and the chance to win extra booster packs if your new deck does well!

PRIZES: These are SINGLE ELIMINATION TURBO DRAFTS, so payout is super simple – winners get 3 packs of UnStable each!

Blood Angel Codex arrives this Saturday!!!!

Hey Third Eye Faithful, we know you are absolutely totally stoked on the new WARHAMMER 40K stuff that’s been dropping all year long!

We’ve got a brand new release hitting this Saturday and we know some of you are chomping at the bit to get a hold of this one!

It’s the BLOOD ANGELS CODEX, and it is AWESOME!

Sons of the angel-winged Primarch Sanguinius, the Blood Angels are noble and magnificent, a proud Space Marine chapter with ten millennia of history.

They are warrior heroes who descend into battle on flaming wings to stand between the Emperor’s servants and the heretical hordes that seek to destroy them.

Yet beneath their heroic exterior lies a dark secret known as the Flaw, a gene-curse that has bedevilled them for millennia, ravaging their souls until they fight as much for a suitably heroic end as they do for victory in the Emperor’s name.

Codex: Blood Angels contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Blood Angels collectors.

Hit us up if you’d like to reserve your copy for this weekend, or just come see us on Saturday, as we’ll have plenty in stock to hook you up!


ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE: TOMB OF ANNIHILATION continues this week! 

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.

Show off your DM skills with our IRON GM event this Saturday! 

We had so much fun with the first IRON GM event that we’re super stoked to see it back at Third Eye!

What is IRON GM? You are a Game Master. But how do you stack up against other Game Masters? This Iron GM® Local competition is your opportunity to show the local gaming community your skills, ability, and imagination!

Choose your weapon wisely. Any game system is allowed. GMs are randomly assigned to a table of players. Inspired by three Secret Story Elements unveiled at the event, GMs create an adventure then run it for players. Afterwards, players judge GMs on their performance. GMs have one hour to craft their adventures, while players use the same time to build characters. After four hours of thrills, players rate GMs using tournament-tested criteria. The results are then tallied, and the winner will bear the title of Third Eye Iron Ranked GM.

Here is what you will need:
-The Core Rule book for your system of choice
-Your Good Dice
-Your writing tools
-Every ounce of creativity and imagination you can muster

If you are not a GM, we need players to take part in some great adventures and judge the Game Masters. Players are assigned at random, so be prepared to try something new!

This is an Iron GM® licensed event.

WHAT IS DICE MASTERS? Basically, it’s like a trading card game, but with dice! 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

LCG night continues to impress, as we feature favorites like LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS, and more!

Living Card Games give all of the fun of a trading card game without having to constantly commit to buying the newest set or hunting down rare singles. There are a broad spectrum of styles as well. Being able to find a game that meets your desired play-style is an invaluable characteristic of the genre.

Starting in November, Third Eye is going to give LCG’s the spotlight they deserve. Come in every Tuesday in November and bring whatever LCG is your favorite. Introduce other players to it or maybe get introduced to an LCG/Deckbuilding game you’ve never seen.

Tuesdays will also be the day we do our Legend of the Five Rings organized play. Come in with a deck and represent your clan in a series of matches. The best performing clan will get priority the next week of which role they will play as. At the end of the month, we will announce the winning clan. L5R’s Imperial cycle will be releasing an expansion every week in November! Players will constantly be able to improve and update their decks with the newest and most powerful cards giving every clan an equal chance to take the lead.

Never Played Legend of the Five Rings? No Problem!!! Third Eye JJ will be available to answer any questions and even give you a quick demo on how the game is played!
