New BLOOD BOWL awesomeness this week!

We’ve got a big batch of BLOOD BOWL goodness on the way this week, Third Eye Faithful, with the arrival of NURGLE’S ROTTERS!

The Rotters rose to fame long ago, having the distinction of being one of the earliest Chaos teams on the circuit to dedicate themselves to a single Chaos god – Grandfather Nurgle himself. Their patron was delighted, lavishing gifts and mutations upon his favoured followers. Today, despite numerous recent setbacks, the Rotters stand poised to once again spread their influence across the leagues and tournaments of the world, bringing Nurgle’s blessings to lands far and wide…

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Nurgle’s Rotters, a particularly foul and dripsome Nurgle team for use in games of Blood Bowl. Appropriately putrid and ‘orrible, each player is mutated and pus-covered with exposed guts, claws and warts featuring heavily. The team consists of 4 Bloaters, 2 Pestigor and 6 Rotters.


Tower of Madness delivers a super fun, fast-to-play Cthulhu-inspired game! 3-5 Players & a total blast!

Investigate unspeakable horrors, without losing your marbles! Literally. A three-dimensional clock tower, stands a foot tall, filled with marbles.

Thirty other worldy tentacles push through the tower walls in every direction, in this high-tension, push-your-luck dice game of Lovecraft inspired horror. Each Location cards has its own unique dice challenge.

Fail and you may slip into insanity or summon Cthulhu and end the world itself.

 


Tons of new miniatures for Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder in stock this week!!!  

We’ve got a buttload of those awesome unpainted minis from Wizkids that are perfect for your D&D and Pathfinder campaigns hitting the shop!

Many of these are brand new releases, and sculpts, so make sure you swing by and scoop some new favorites!

Never played? No worries! Andrew Miller will be running the event and can teach you everything you need to know to get started. Plus, many of our top players started not too long ago and love introducing new players to the game!

PLAY FORMAT: 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.
