ROGUE TRADER comes to KILL TEAM this week at Third Eye!

We’re loving KILL TEAM, and there’s more awesomeness on the way for it this week with the arrival of ROGUE TRADER!

Rogue Trader Elucia Vhane and her Starstriders seek to colonise new worlds at the behest of the Imperium’s mightiest leader. Their quest aims to travel far beyond the Chaos contamination that threatens to engulf Mankind. Yet nowhere is safe, for the twisted tendrils of corruption have followed them even beyond the borders of the Imperium. Can the Rogue Trader and the deadly specialists she has forged into a team defeat the hulking Vulgar Thrice-Cursed and his virulent band of mutated followers? Can the cutting edge of human skill match the loathsome gifts granted by the Dark Gods?

Kill Team: Rogue Trader is an expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, the fast-paced tabletop miniatures game pitting small bands of elite specialists against each other in vicious skirmish combat. This set adds 2 new factions, new environments, new missions and a host of new rules, allowing you to recreate desperate battles beyond the borders of known space. Inside the packed box:


The new X-WING 2nd Edition arrives this Thursday, and we’ve got it all!

We’ve been huge fans of Fantasy Flight’s X-WING Miniatures Game for a long time now, and this week, we’re stoked to see the new 2nd edition series arriving this week!

Enter the next era of interstellar combat in the Star Wars galaxy! In X-Wing Second Edition, you assemble a squadron of iconic starfighters from across the Star Wars saga and engage in fast-paced, high-stakes space combat with iconic pilots such as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

With refined gameplay that focuses on the physical act of flying starships, X-Wing Second Edition lets you create your own Star Wars space battles right on your tabletop. Intuitive mechanics create the tense atmosphere of a firefight while beautifully pre-painted miniatures draw you deeper into the action. Man your ships and enter the fray!

ARKHAM HORROR delivers its next Mythos pack with THE CITY OF ARCHIVES!!!  

The City of Archives is the fourth Mythos Pack in The Forgotten Age cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.

Following the events of Heart of the Elders, you and your team of investigators have journeyed deep into a series of caverns where a new world lays hidden from the outside world. Strange creatures that cannot be of this world have seemingly lived beneath the shell of the Earth for centuries. They are horrifying to look upon, but are they dangerous? Now within their domain, it may be best to go along with whatever they want, but how much can you trust them, and what might your naïveté cost you?

This Mythos Pack features a new mechanic that makes playing this scenario an out-of-body experience, as well as new player cards to customize your investigators’ decks.


Come hang out and join the PATHFINDER SOCIETY on Saturday 9/22/18!

Third Eye Faithful, are you ready to roll some dice, kill some monsters, foil assassination plots, and solve a few murder mysteries? Join us for Third Eye’s introduction to Pathfinder and Pathfinder Society organized play!
 
WHAT IS PATHFINDER? Pathfinder is a Roleplaying Game (RPG) very similar to Dungeons & Dragons, set in a fantasy world where you create your character and turn them into an epic hero as they level up! You take on the role of a Pathfinder, going on adventures with your party to slay monsters and complete missions

Everyone is welcome, from new players to experienced veterans. Children are also welcome!
WHAT IS PATHFINDER SOCIETY? The Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild is a worldwide fantasy roleplaying campaign that puts YOU in the role of an agent of the Pathfinder Society—a legendary league of explorers, archaeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and evil.
Play is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and achievements of you and your fellow Pathfinders create an ongoing storyline. Each season consists of numerous scenarios set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion.
