GAMES WORKSHOP drops another great codex this weekend!!

This Saturday GAMES WORKSHOP continues to drop an AWESOME new codex!

Wreathed in warpfire and imbued with boundless empyric energy, the Thousand Sons are the favoured mortal servants of Tzeentch, the Weaver of Destinies.

What soul remains in these Heretic Astartes is consumed by a desire to see the Imperium burn. An aura of maddening flux radiates from the psychic core of the Traitor Legion, twisting hope into despair. As their warp presence flares ever brighter, time shifts unnaturally, stretching seconds into seeming eternities and crushing seconds into fleeting moments.

The only anchors to reality that remain are the racing heartbeats of the fearful and the incessant pounding of Rubric Marines advancing in perfect unison.

Make sure you stop by Third Eye Games this weekend for your copy!


Search 19th century Scotland Yard to solve London’s crimes in 13 Clues! 

The city of London has been shaken by heinous crimes, and Scotland Yard is groping in the dark. 13 Clues, set at the end of the 19th century, puts players in the shoes of the detectives, each trying to solve their own mystery.

Each player sees the clues — person + location + weapon — for the other players but not their own. They investigate by asking questions, by consulting the secret informant, and by making accusations in order to collect clues and rule out suspects.

The goal of the game is to identify which of the 13 clues match their case before the others do!

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.

LCG night ft. Legend of the Five Rings Organized Play!!!!

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.

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!
