Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City presents a Bad Medicine Demonstration!
Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate Bad Medicine.
What is Bad Medicine??
Bad Medicine is a raucous new party game of quick thinking and hilarious storytelling, from the designer of the word game Prolix and the economic strategy game Battle Merchants.
In Bad Medicine, you and your opponents are huge pharmaceutical companies. Your goal is to create names and advertisements for new drugs to cure the current Malady, while downplaying any side effects that you’ll never know about ahead of time.
Each card in the game has a little bit of a drug name, a little bit of a description, and a side effect. There will be one card dealt in the middle of the table; its side effect is the Malady to cure this round.
You’ll formulate a drug to cure the Malady. Then you’ll pitch it to the other players. Of course, your drug will have a side effect.
If your pitch gets the most votes, then your drug’s side effect will be the Malady to cure next round!
Bill will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public this great game!
Do you enjoy Board games? Got a fantastic new game and no one at home to play it with? Well, bring it on down to our Emerald City Board Game Meet-Ups!
No purchase necessary to come down and have fun! The festivities start at 4pm. Even if you don’t have your own games to play, fear not — we have a wide variety of free-to-play demonstration copies for anyone to use in our game room!
Drink and snack purchases are available!

ANDRE THE GIANT GN CLOSER TO HEAVEN
(W) Brandon M. Easton (A/CA) Denis Medri
Jean Ferre. Monster Eiffel Tower. Fezzik. These were alter egos for the internationally acclaimed pro wrestling superstar known as Andre the Giant, who thrilled audiences worldwide with his unmatched charisma and remarkable athleticism. Despite his astonishing popularity, few really knew the man behind the curtain-the man born in the French countryside named Andre Roussimoff. Showing signs of gigantism at an early age, Andre decided to use his size to his advantage and entered the wild world of professional wrestling. From his first day in the squared circle, those close to him knew that a legend was born.
This lavishly illustrated biography of Andre the Giant charts his entire life from the earliest days on his family’s farm to his blockbuster feuds with the biggest wrestling stars of all time, exploring the dark side of fame and fortune along the way.
GIANT DAYS TP VOL 01
(W) John Allison (A/CA) Lissa Treiman
John Allison’s daily webcomic Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round are hilarious, the kind of strips where every panel makes you laugh out loud. As a result, John has earned a large, loyal following of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years. Giant Days is an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott Pilgrim will not want to miss!
What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.
