Guilds of Ravnica drops this Friday 10/05!

Stand With Your Guild.

“It is autumn on Ravnica. The story occurs mostly in darkness with shadows and moodiness, similar to a Film Noir. The story gears up for the final showdown with Nicol Bolas. He is trying to slowly influence Ravnica and warp it to his needs. The guilds fight internally between the forces pulling them toward or away from Bolas’s influence.”

We’ll have everything for you Third Eye Faithful like we always do! Booster boxes, packs, bundles, planeswalker decks the NEW THEMED BOOSTERs and singles!

It’ll all be out on display when our doors open at 11am!


Anyone up for some casual giant monster fighting? Third Eye will have Monsterpocalypse to get you started! 

Choose to either be a Protector or a Destroyer in this reboot of the early 2000’s miniature game!

Use our paint bar to get them ready for battle and then hop onto our war tables to test them out!

P.s- we didn’t forget about the units, they’ll all be here as well!

Join us on Saturday 10/20/18 for our 3 Year Anniversary Sale!

Hey Third Eye Faithful.. it’s hard to believe that Third Eye Games & Hobbies has been around for THREE years now!

Now, three years on, while there’s still a ton of things we’ve got in the works to improve the store, we gotta say: because of YOU, Third Eye Faithful, Third Eye Games and Hobbies has become the kind of game store we were hoping it would be: a fun, inviting place for gamers of all experience levels and walks of life to connect and share in the joy and community of gaming.

We’re not gonna lie; it makes us a little teary eyed to see how much we’ve grown. Much of that is because of you all! Your enthusiasm, passion and loyal support is what’s helped us grow into the crazy awesome Third Eye Games we are now, and we wanted to do something extra special to THANK YOU for this.

On 10/20/18, we’ll be doing a very special one-day only ANNIVERSARY SALE event where we’ll be putting nearly everything in the store on sale, and inviting a few AMAZING creators in for game demos and a few other surprises!

Our Fall Commander League begins on 10/7/18!!

Commander League is back just in time for the holidays! This time we are featuring Guilds of Ravnica! Join us October 7th – November 25th for eight weeks of cardboard-slinging madness!

DAH Rules!
This league is designed as the ultimate Commander experience, walking a balancing act between being competitive and show-casing more inventive cards. Most importantly the focus is on FUN!
Players will be randomized into pods of 3 or 4 and will have 60 minutes to duke it out for Weekly prizes, earning placement points, AND a sheet of 8-10 achievements which get added to their league total!!

• 7 weeks of achievement farming ; the 8th week is a championship comprised of the top 16 points earners from the season.
• Placement points: 1st 4pts ; 2nd 3pts ; 3rd 2pts ; 4th 1pt
• In a 3 player pod 4th place doesn’t exist so you would get the 3rd place points if you finish last.
• If time in the round expires all remaining players split the remaining points
• If you present a lethal board state, you cannot choose not to use it to farm achievement points.
• If a player wins via infinite combo OR presents a board state the rest of the pod agrees to concede to, that player receives the highest placement points they can, and the rest of the pod continues to play.

Prizes!
Weekly Prize Payouts: (not including achievement points)
12 points: 6 packs
10-11.5 points: 4 packs
7-9.5 points: 2 packs
Participation Prize: Sign-up for the league guarantees players at least $20 in prize packs!

Dice Masters Mondays: Sidekick Night

We know that you’re all major DICE MASTERS fans, and we’ve decided to begin hosting a weekly Monday night DICE MASTERS event for you!

The Challenge!

Sidekick Night! This week we are challenging our players to come up with a team full of Super Heros and their counter parts IE Batman and Robin or Captain America and Bucky Barns. (Sliver Age – 2017 rotation)

BAC Sliver Age

THE DETAILS!

REGISTRATION: ONLY $3 at the counter!

REMEMBER: Our Constructed games follow Dice Masters Tournament rules. Each player selects a maximum of eight Characters or Action Cards, and 20 corresponding dice. They also select two Basic Action Cards. Constructed games are played at 20 life. Rounds last 30 minutes and then are judged based on life totals.
A player may not bring two characters with the same name, even if they have different subtitles (i.e. Wolverine: Wanted, and Wolverine: Canucklehead).

NEVER PLAYED? No worries! Third Eye 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!

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!
