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!)

    MONSTERPOCALYPSE: PROTECTORS AND DESTROYERS STARTER SETS

    Monsterpocalypse is a fast-moving, action-packed battle miniatures game played with detailed hobby miniatures that players assemble and paint to portray the most fearsome giant monsters on Earth!

    When the battle begins, you’ll command your monster and lead your units into the city to hunt down and destroy your opponent’s monster. Your monster and units each have weapons and abilities that are activated by special dice to help you achieve ultimate victory.

    Monsters can increase their power throughout the game by smashing buildings and destroying enemy units. When two monsters fight each other, the results are devastating—they can throw each other across the city, rampage through buildings, and suplex each other into radioactive rubble! The last monster standing wins the game.

    MESOZOOIC

    The age of the dinosaurs is back — this time safely behind glass! Build the best dino zoo and impress your guests in a frantic, real-time puzzle game.

    Dinosaurs are back and the world is clamoring to see them! In Mesozooic, it's your job as the director to plan and construct a zoo that will surpass any others. Fill your zoo with a variety of crowd-pleasing features: wow your visitors with towering dinosaur enclosures, entertain them with prehistoric attractions, and let them travel around the zoo in style on a network of monorails.

    Over the course of three rounds, players draft the most desirable features into their hand, piece their zoo together in real-time, and score each layout to see who has created the best zoo.

    After drafting your favorite features, you’ll have to organize them in your zoo—but things won’t always go as planned! Race against time by frantically sliding the cards one at a time to match up features and optimize your zoo’s layout. Complete dinosaur enclosures, connect monorail tracks, and maintain your attractions to score points. The zoo with the best layout will score the most points!

    When drafting cards, you can choose to customize your zoo however you like. Choose from attractions, monorails, dinosaur enclosures, or topiary.

    Guests will be dazzled by the larger-than-life attractions at your zoo. Pterodactyls soar through the aviary, dinosaur eggs hatch in the nursery, and underwater creatures swim through the bright blue waters of the aquarium. Your zoo can include any or all of these attractions! To keep things running smoothly, attractions need to be regularly maintained. In order to score attractions in your zoo, you must keep a maintenance truck next to the attraction.

    While visiting your zoo, guests will need to get around. Hopping on the monorail will quickly transport your guests to other corners of the park. In order to be effective, the monorail’s route must be connected. If you can continue the track, each connection will score points for your zoo.

    The highlight of the zoo is, of course, the dinosaurs themselves! Let guests come face to face with these creatures from another age. Create the perfect environment for gentle herbivores or powerful carnivores, each in their own enclosure. Each completed enclosure will score points.

    Careful planning and quick thinking can give you the edge. Astonish guests with the amazing creatures from a land before time. Will guests flock to your dinosaur zoo?

    TROIKA

    Not far into the future, a stone was found in a star — then more stones were found, and it turns out that if you combine three of these stones in the right way, you create a very valuable jewel. What's more, you can combine them in a different way to create fuel.

    In Troika, you are an adventurer who has dreamed of making a fortune, so you've travelled to this star along with other wanderers. Unfortunately, your spacecraft has no more fuel, so while you'd like to create jewels, if you don't also create fuel, you'll die as the richest person at the end of the universe!

    In the game, you place all the heptagonal tiles face down on the table, and on a turn you either draw a face-down tile or take a face-up tile that someone returned to the table. You have a hand limit of seven tiles, and within that limit you're trying to collect both three tiles of the same number (to serve as fuel) and three tiles in numerical order (to transform into a gem). If you have no fuel, you can't win the game; of those who do have fuel, the player with the most valuable jewel wins.

    LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS RPG

    It is an era of sudden change and upheaval in Rokugan. Mortal schemes, natural calamities, and celestial turmoil alike have disrupted the political, military, and spiritual equilibrium of the land. Long-simmering rivalries and fresh betrayals ripple through the courts and on the battlefield. The Chrysanthemum Throne is beset by threats from without and within, and the honor of the seven Great Clans shall be put to the test. Who among the clans will prove strong enough to guide Rokugan in these tumultuous times? Will their names be lifted up beside those of the honored ancestors, or will they fall among the ranks of the empire’s most infamous villains?

    This is the stage of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Core Rulebook, a new roleplaying experience in the world of Rokugan.

    KING OF TOKYO: ANUBIS MONSTER PACK

    He is coming for you! While rampaging through a history museum, you accidentally stepped on a sarcophagus, causing Anubis to appear, intent upon avenging the profaned mummy. Can you escape the wrath of the God of the Dead as he showers curses on the town?

    The Anubis Monster Pack is compatible with the King of Tokyo and King of New York base games and with all their expansions. The Anubis Monster Pack introduces a new game component in the form of the die of fate! You can use the die of fate in your games even if you play without Evolution cards or are not playing with Anubis.

    SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS: A GEMSTONE MINING GAME

    Play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: A Gemstone Mining Game and press your luck as you collect valuable gems from the mine and earn bonus points by discovering gem combinations from Snow White objectives.

    In the game, which is based on Quartz, you and your fellow dwarfs do what you do best — mine for gemstones. It's off to work you go, collecting as many as you can to trade in for Snow White pie points. Beware of your friends as well as the dangers that lurk in the mine that could force you to return home empty-handed. Have the most pie points after five days in the mine, and you win!

    FALLOUT WASTELAND WARFARE

    In Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, players build their own crew from a wide range of factions, allies, and iconic characters from the Fallout series, then play in apocalyptic games of 3-30 high-quality 32mm scale resin miniatures through a huge variety of iconic scenery and settlement buildings, from the Red Rocket to Sanctuary Hills, Nuka-Cola vending machines and wrecked vehicles. Settlements include buildings, defenses, and resources that impact the crew's army list and abilities in the wasteland.

    Fallout: Wasteland Warfare includes an entire narrative campaign arc as well as unique random missions with narrative-style objectives, and crew caps recovered in missions can be used to improve the crew's perks, weapons, gear, and upgrades for the next encounter. In either player vs. player or tournament mode, players try to survive the tabletop wasteland.

    The game also comes with a customizable solo-play AI deck to control enemies that play to their strengths and replicate a faction's tactics while attempting a narrative mission or perfecting settlement-building strategy. Players can also team up with a friend to defend a larger settlement or explore narrative missions in cooperative games against AI forces or the post-apocalyptic dangers of the wasteland.

    The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare two player starter set contains 32mm scale high-quality hardened PVC miniatures with scenic bases. Miniatures are fully assembled. You can upgrade this with the resin miniatures upgrade kit to get all the miniatures in multi-part high-quality resin.

    RICK AND MORTY TRIVIAL PURSUIT

    Trivial Pursuit: Rick and Morty allows fans of the hit television series to test their knowledge from 600 questions relating to Frienemies, Technology & Science, Locations, Rick and the Family, History & Events and a Wubalubadubdub Wild Card category.

    SPACE PARK

    Ride a rocket to extraordinary destinations across our galaxy. During your travels you will gather exotic crystals that further our understanding of what’s out there. Use these crystals to complete exploration badges and turn them in at the mysterious Outpost 13 to prove yourself as the galaxy’s next great space explorer!

    Space Park features a modular board where seven destinations are randomly arranged to form a circle between players. During a player's turn, rockets will be on three of the board's seven destinations. These rockets symbolize what destinations are available for a player to travel to. Once a player travels to a destination by performing its action, that rocket moves to the next open destination clockwise.

    Destinations feature actions such as gaining a certain type of crystal, acquiring a new badge to work toward, turning in your crystals for Explorer Points, or using your trusty explorer-bot Scout to help out. The player with the most Explorer Points at the end of the game wins.

    MICROPOLIS

    Gather your ants in Micropolis, and send them through the anthill to do your bidding. What do you want? Fruit? Warriors? A queen? Even more ants?!

    Each player starts with a central location that will be surrounded by ten tiles over the course of the game, with the tiles being connected by a series of tunnels. Over ten rounds, players draft tiles one at a time, with the player with the largest army going first. They can take the first tile in line, or place an ant on each tile they want to pass to get to something better. The tiles have various roles on them: Queens who if alone can improve their space; Nannies who give you extra ant soldiers; Architects who let you take any tile for free; Warriors who attack the first player; Generals who manage the movement of your ant soldiers; and Fruit gatherers who collect fruits, which score based on the variety you have.

    Ants at the end of the game are worth one point each, and whoever has the largest army earns an additional 5 points.

    FOLKLORE: THE AFFLICTION

    Embark on a cooperative epic adventure that is Folklore the Affliction. Find and destroy the source of the evil spreading its claws into the heart of the land, decimating its people and resources. Free the denizens from the scourge of vampirism and lycanthropy and expand your power and abilities. Are you a survivor, or will you play as your ghost? Will you fall to the bloodlust or the taint of lycanthropy yourself?

    Folklore: The Affliction is an expandable ongoing horror RPG board game for 1-5 players that focuses on immersive storyline, strategic combat, character development and intense character customization elements. Your successes and failures, encounters and challenges can affect the entire group raising the ante and fueling interaction. Play one of six customizable and unique characters in a quest to gain Lore by conquering the supernatural Afflictions. Travel the land and enter dark locations where the action becomes a miniature based dungeon crawl. Uncover deeper and more intriguing storylines as you go further into darkness in your quest to drive the evil back into the hell it came from.

    Dying in Folklore is not the end for your character... dead characters play on as their ghost with ethereal powers to strike down your foes from beyond the grave. You are never truly out of the action. Customizable abilities even include those that can strengthen your character in the afterlife!

He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of METAL, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse-something both terrifying and oddly familiar.

Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques.
