POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE
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!”

A&A 1
A&A #1
VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
(W) Rafer Roberts (A/CA) David LaFuente
GET SMASHED…OR BE SMASHED! Valiant’s (somewhat) dynamic duo are going “IN THE BAG” for AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES from rising star Rafer Roberts and comic book superstar David Lafuente!
Meet Armstrong: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.
Meet Archer: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman that was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, the two have become great friends and even better partners.
Now: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)
Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without
becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?

It’s kinda crazy to think that it took the TV networks this long to make the lord of darkness the star of his own television show. Great things come to those who wait I suppose.

    If you're not familiar with the featured game, or need a quick refresher, you can join our Learn & Play from noon to 2pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

    NO ONE gets you into the game like Emerald City Comics!!!

    The featured game for this session is... UNFAIR

    Build the city’s greatest theme park, whatever it takes!

    Mix your favourite themes, from Pirate, Robot, Vampire, Jungle, Ninja, and Gangster. Build attractions and upgrade them to match blueprints, stack up towering rides, or simply make the most cash.

    But watch out - your competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalise your park! How will you get revenge?

    Whatever happens, it’s bound to be Unfair.

    Over the course of 8 rounds, you play Event cards to help yourself and hinder your opponents, build Attractions and Upgrades using Park cards, and match your park to Blueprints.

    You might hire staff to help you, or build a Super Attraction with a unique ability. Bribing officials and blackmailing politicians is also possible, but entirely

    STAR WARS DESTINY: LEGACIES

    Expand your Star Wars: Destiny collection with Legacies, a new set of booster packs for the collectible dice and card game!

    Legacies continues the evolution of Star Wars: Destiny, expanding on classic archetypes while introducing new mechanisms, including a new die symbol and a new card type. As a new Base Set, Legacies is a solid starting point for Destiny newcomers while introducing innovative new concepts that challenge classic gameplay and tactics.

    TOPIARY

    In Topiary, players try to position their visitors on the outer edge of a beautiful topiary garden in order to give them the best view possible. Visitors can see the closest topiary sculpture to them and any behind that, in the same sight line, that are larger. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors.

    DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: DUNGEON TILES REINCARNATED

    Breathe life into your tabletop game with these full color dungeon tiles. Infinitely expandable and easy to set up, these dungeon tiles allow you to create the adventures you want to play.

    Available in the following sets:

    -Dungeon

    Tiles to make fantastic dungeon maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring dungeon rooms, corridors, caverns, tunnels, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -Wildernesss

    Tiles to make fantastic wilderness maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring grasslands, ruins, sandy beaches, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -City

    Tiles to make fantastic city maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring city streets, buildings, sewers, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    VALERIAN: ALPHA MISSIONS

    Valerian: The Alpha Missions gives fans of tabletop gaming and the Valerian franchise the opportunity to discover Alpha, a vast metropolis in which species from across the universe gather over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures. After assembling a team of agents, players must cooperate to explore a contested zone of Alpha, race to complete objectives while battling and evading enemies. Complete the missions and get to the extraction site in time to win!

    The game board consists of randomly placed tiles that are revealed as agents move around the map, creating a unique experience each game. Players will never know who or what they might encounter – enemies could attack or players may discover valuable resources to power their mission gear. Each player must decide whether to split up and accomplish their objectives faster or sacrifice valuable resources to save their teammates. As the clock runs down and enemies gain ground, only the most skilled team of agents will complete their missions to return as heroes.

    ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 1/12/18

    “Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! EC Book Club - Hawkeye vol 2: Little Hits! is the featured book at our next ECBC meeting.

    Here are the comics and graphic novels that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!). To ensure that you get these books when they arrive, please call the store at 727-398-2665 or email our Books & New Comics Merchant at stephanie@emeraldcitycomics.com, to reserve a copy!

    From the Previews Catalog #352, January 2018 (for books arriving mainly in March 2018)…
    www.previewsworld.com/catalog

    One story spanning eight timelines - told by Europe’s mightiest comics creators (examples from the original French editions)

    Infinity 8 #1 (pages 378-379) - The deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" encounters a field of debris of unknown origin, and eight of the ship's top security agents are sent to investigate in eight separate parallel time-loops. But secrets lie within the inter-species population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on. The debut of a far-out, pulpy, sci-fi series of parallel adventures in the tongue-in-cheek tradition of the original Heavy Metal, but for a new generation (Newsarama).

    Potion Explosion is a game for 2 to 4 players by Horrible Games.

    Dear students, it's time for the final exams of the Potions class! The rules are always the same: Take an ingredient marble from the dispenser and watch the others fall. If you connect marbles of the same color, they explode and you can take them, too! Complete your potions using the marbles you collect, and drink them to unleash their magical power. Remember, though, that to win the Student of the Year award, being quick won't be enough: you'll also need to brew the most valuable potions in Potion Explosion!
