Compete against your friends for the highest score in Drop it!

Circles, triangles, squares and diamonds: Drop It is about letting go, with the pieces you drop landing somewhere in the vertical game board, ideally where they’ll score the most points, but the tiles bounce around and don’t always land where you expect them to!


Arya Stark appears in the new Game of Thrones expansion: The Faith Militant!

The Faith Militant is the fifth Chapter Pack in the “Flight of Crows” cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, and it introduces a special focus on the religions of Westeros, even when viewed alongside the other Chapter Packs of the cycle. Here, you’ll find characters who’ve sworn fealty to The Seven, the Drowned God, and R’hllor, each serving their gods with the utmost fervor. With iconic characters like Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, and Coldhands appearing in this expansion alongside a new agenda focused on The Seven, it’s plain to see that the Seven Kingdoms will never be the same again.

Third Eye’s Explorers’ Club: Genesys!

Hey Third Eye Faithful!

Welcome back to this month’s installment of the THIRD EYE EXPLORERS’ CLUB! This time around, we’ll be delving deep into GENESYS, the new setting-neutral, dice-rolling, role-playing game from Fantasy Flight!
WHAT IS GENESYS?
Genesys is based on FFG’s popular STAR WARS role-playing game, but with their unique narrative dice system and character creation ported over into any setting you want!
The core rulebook comes with rules for Steampunk, Modern, Fantasy, Scifi, and Space Opera settings, but that’s just a sample of what’s possible with the Genesys setting worksheets and Game Mastery tools!
WITH SO MANY OPTIONS, WHAT WILL WE PLAY?
These Explorers’ Club intro sessions will be players’ choice – everyone who comes out to learn will get to vote on which of the basic settings to explore, and we have an introduction planned for each one!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Just yourself and your friends! Traditional RPG dice aren’t used in Genesys, so we’ll have sets of the special Narrative Dice available to borrow during the intro, and plenty of them to purchase if you enjoy the game.
We’ll see you at the intro sessions, Monday nights at 6pm here at Third Eye Games & Hobbies! Details here!

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.
