4. For the 80’s Kid In Your Life – Fireball Island!

Got a gamer who grew up in the glory age of GI JOE cartoons, and Van Halen LPs?

They NEED Fireball Island!

This immortal classic is bigger, taller, faster, looks like a million bucks, and doubles down on the kinetic mayhem of the original.

30 years later, the players are back, looking for adventure. As guests on the world’s worst adventure tourism destination, they will traverse wild terrain, gather snapshots of amazing views, and collect treasure along the way. Get the most stuff and get back to the helicopter. Of course, a certain vengeful fire spirit has other ideas. It’s not long before massive fireballs come careening down the paths. Can you make it back at all?

The new version of the game features a larger island, faster marbles, and fully redesigned game play. Players play cards to move their figures, manipulate the features on the island, and unleash Vul-Kar’s wrath.

5. Gundams! Gundams! Gundams!

You know you have at least one person in your life who can’t get enough of building giant robots, and all year round, Third Eye is one of the go-to destinations in the DMV for all things Gunpla!

Come by & hook them up with a new kit!





This graphic novel details the story of the one and only Gary Gygax, the man who made most of what we do at Third Eye Games possible!





7. For The Tabletop Gamer Who Has It All – 8-BIT BOX

Want a killer new game that your favorite board game enthusiast may not have yet? 8-BIT BOX is it!

This game is a blast, and lets you literally BUILD A VIDEO GAME out of a tabletop board game!

Inspired by retro-gaming, 8Bit Box contains everything to recreate the sensations we all had playing classic games from the 80’s. With the controllers in your hands, live a new gaming experience to share with your friends.

The 8Bit Box base set contains the shared components needed to play all 8Bit Box games. Every game is different, immersing you in another universe with a unique game configuration. The shared components, from the controllers to the cubes and dice, are added to the specific components found in the boxes for each 8Bit Box game. Because these are generic components, they can totally serve different purposes from game to game.

8. For New & Old Tabletop Gamers Alike – CAMEL UP

One of the most legendary board games of all-time, CAMEL UP is back with an all new edition, and we’re telling you right now this long out of print game will make the tabletop gamer in your house very happy!

The 2014 SDJ winning classic Camel Up is returning with an all-new edition from Eggertspiele! Featuring the same great game play found in the original built around betting on a camel race, this new “2.0” edition features a variety of improvements including a plastic pyramid to replace the original cardboard & rubber band version, new art and graphic design all-around, engraved plastic dice, and even some new game modes for players to explore.

Welcome to the craziest camel race you’ll ever see! The award winning game about the craziest camel race, just got crazier! The race now includes new contestants – camels that are so confused that they start the race running in the wrong direction!

That’s not all that’s new!

The track has been significantly enhanced since your last visit – it now includes new art and components.

9. For the Card Game Plater In Your Life — Card Supplies!

We have a HUGE selection of card supplies at Third Eye, including the totally awesome ULTIMATE GUARD line — come hook up the player in your life with some new swag to make their decks look fancy!




10. For the Wargamer In Your House – Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress

The coolest thing to come out of the WH world in a while, and any miniature gamer in your house will love it!

In Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, you and your friend take on the role of a group of disparate explorers delving into the labyrinthine halls of a vast and ancient space station.

Only by working together and balancing your strength and skills can you hope to survive.

With each expedition, you will discover powerful archeotech and learn more of the Blackstone Fortress’ closely guarded secrets, including, perhaps, the location of its greatest treasure.

The game can be played solo, or with up to 4 friends, with the fifth player controlling the hostiles. At the end of each expedition, the players return to the nearby port city of Precipice to rest, recuperate, and trade their loot for resources that will aid in their next adventure.
