Civil War Day! Newsletter 6/3/16

 

Before we get started with the festivities, though, a brief message…

SPECIAL GUESTS & VENDORS, PLEASE NOTE:

For the safety and security of our Guests, in addition to properly planning and communicating all elements of the event, ALL performers, vendors, and other forms of entertainment MUST clear their appearances with our Marketing Director prior to the event.

This applies ONLY to people who are here to promote a business or organization. If you are someone who just loves cosplay and want to dress up for our events, you are ALWAYS more than WELCOME to participate, as long as you are not charging for photos, passing out materials, etc.  If you simply want to dress in your finest cosplay, we would be thrilled to see you!!!

Our Marketing Director can be reached by calling the store at 727-398-2665. If you are planning to promote your group, organization, charity, or personal business, you MUST coordinate your appearance with our Director in advance.

Again, our wish is to protect our Guests (parking safety, liability, etc.), and create events that have specific themes to avoid confusion (such as Wonder Woman appearing at an X-Men event, etc.). Also, we have numerous groups and businesses who wish to use us as a platform, and because these “sponsorships” may give the perception that we are connected to these organizations, we must know whom, and what, we are helping to promote.

While we are happy to promote other businesses (and especially charities), each appearance needs to be planned out logistically, and proper arrangements and promotions must be made.

Thank you for your understanding!

…and now, on with the show!!!

POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE MEETUP
POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE
Sundays from 4pm to 6pm

Ages 8-16
New players always welcome!

Our Pokémon Youth League provides a nearby place for you to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun!

Using your own cards and Pokémon video games, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do!

What IS the Pokémon Trading Card Game?

Download the rules here…
http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/rules

…or stop by during our events to see first-hand how the game is played!

“You are a Pokémon Trainer! You travel across the land, battling other Trainers with your Pokémon, creatures that love to battle and that have amazing powers! Your deck of cards represents your Pokémon as well as items and allies that help you on your adventures.

Trading card games are strategy based and use collectible cards to let each player customize his or her game. The best way to learn to play the Pokémon TCG is with a Trainer Kit. This has two ready-to-play decks that walk you through the game, step by step. From there, try a theme deck to get an idea of the different kinds of decks out there. Once you’re ready, you can start building your collection of cards with Pokémon TCG booster packs. Trade with your friends for the strongest Pokémon or collect all your favorites! Then, build your own 60-card deck, play with your friends, and show off your own personal Pokémon team!

In the Pokémon TCG, your Pokémon battle your opponent’s Pokémon. The first player to take all of his or her Prize cards wins! Also, if your opponent cannot draw a card at the beginning of his or her turn, or has no Pokémon left in play, you win the game!”

HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT MEETUP
HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT – CIVIL WAR EVENT DRAFT MONTH 1
Friday, June 10th from 6:30pm to 9pm

The Superhuman Registration Act has divided the heroes (and villains) of the Marvel Universe— whose side will you be on when you face off against your friends and former allies in Marvel HeroClix: Civil War?

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War is a four-month Storyline Organized Play event series that will both divide and unite HeroClix players around the world as they choose to fight alongside Iron Man and other Pro-Registration heroes or alongside Captain American and his band of Anti-Registration vigilantes.

For more information, copy and paste the link below into your browser:

http://wizkids.com/heroclix/marvel-heroclix-civil-war-storyline-organized-play-series/

————————–——————————————–

Entry is $14.99 plus tax. Entry includes one booster of of the Civil War Organized play exclusive set. Once we finish the registration process, packs will be distributed, and we will have everyone declare their allegiance to the Pro or Anti Registration side. Unfortunately, due to the nature of material distribution, we only have so many slots for each side, so choice priority will go in order of entry payment. Entries can only be purchased after 5:30, on the day of the event (6/10/16). A limited number of maps are available, so if you want to be able to pick particular maps, should you win your map roll, be sure to bring your own. The maps MUST be Modern Age.

What’s this about?: HeroClix tournaments are a sanctioned series of events that offer players opportunities for competitive play and exclusive figures. Tired of beating your friends? Bring your A-game here and see how you do. First time players at EC always get a figure!

What do you need to play?: For sealed format tournaments, you’ll need to supply your dice, and something to write with. It’s also recommended that you bring your own maps, so you have the advantage should you win the roll for map choice. However, Dice and Maps are available in limited numbers.

What is ‘Modern Age’?: Modern Age is a limited format that is a relative standard for HeroClix, especially for competitive play.

The recent 2016 Modern Age set rotation is detailed at the link below:

51st state
51ST STATE GAME DEMONSTRATION
Sunday, June 12th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a 51st State game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

The world you know no longer exists. There is no government. No army. No civilization. The United States has collapsed, and now thirty years after the war started, new powers finally try to take control over the ruined country, try to establish a new order, try to control others and create a new country, a new state: the 51st State.

51st State is a card game in which players control one of four powers trying to build a new country. Players put new locations into play, hire leaders, and send people to work in buildings to gain resources and new skills. To do this, every card in 51st State can be used in three different ways:

Raze a location to gain many resources once.
Deal with this location to gain one resource every turn.
Build the location so that you can use its skill each turn.

Here’s a link to the BoardGameGeek page for the game:

“JUSTIN’S JABBER” — BACK ISSUES
—————————————————

 

Hello my little droogies! This is how we’re gonna do it this week: nothing but annuals! More pages equals more value, and here at EC we’re all about giving our Guests more bang for their buck.

 

Deadpool_and_Death_Annual_Vol_1_1998
Deadpool & Death Annual 1998, Origin of Deadpool and Ajax, Fine (6.0) condition, $25.
Talk about more bang for your buck! Two hot character origins in one book! You can’t beat that with a baseball bat!

 

Incredible_Hulk_Annual_Vol_1_6
Incredible Hulk Annual #6, first appearance of Paragon, Fine (6.0) condition, $25.
Hot, HOT book here folks! Oh, what? You haven’t heard? Paragon a.k.a. Ayesha a.k.a. Kismet is set to appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. I sold two copies of this book the day after the announcement hit the internet. Last copy in the store here, folks. Come an’ get it!

 

Batman_Annual_25
Batman Annual #25, Origin of Jason Todd as Red Hood, Very Fine Plus (8.5) condition, $25.
I’m gonna keep it real with you folks: I always thought Jason Todd should’ve stayed dead. The whole Death In The Family storyline loses a bit of it’s impact when the reader knows that the dude who dramatically perishes in the story comes back a few years down the road when Superboy Prime pitches a fit and “alters reality from the paradise dimension in which he is trapped—his punches against the barrier keeping him from the rest of the universe causing temporal ripples.” That’s a direct quote from the wiki page. You can’t make this stuff up folks … or I guess you can if you happen to be a comic book writer.

 

Avengers_Annual_Vol_1_10
Avengers Annual #10, first appearance of Rogue, Very Fine (8.0) condition, $50.
Gotta keep it even realer with you guys: I wanted this week’s post to remain thematic, and this was the only key book that I could think of that fit the bill. This being a stated fact, allow me to point out that said fact in no way diminishes the cool quality of the book in question. Rogue has always been — and in my estimation will always remain — one very cool character.

 

The name’s Justin. Justin Wallner. And I … KEEPS … IT … REALLY … REAL….

 

(Please note that the digital samples shown are for clear image references only, and are NOT the actual books being offered for sale. Please call us at 727-398-2665 for condition, availability, or any other questions about the books!)

    For example, we recently hosted a visit from Marvel Comics's Mike Perkins, who was here to sign copies of his Marvel's Iron Fist #1!!! Our friends from Agents Of SLABS Signature Service were here to help process these books for collectors!!!

    He had a great time with our EC Guests, and we were mesmerized by his great sense of humor, his hypnotic English accent, and his brilliant drawings!!!!

    We look forward to having him back soon, and in the meantime, keep watching our Facebook page and EC NewsFlyers for future guest appearances!!!
