How about a FREE DEADPOOL BUTTON?

It’s perfect for playing “Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?” (Seriously, it’s a thing. Google it.) Actually, it’s NOT perfect for that, because it does have a STICK PIN in it, but we suppose you could play a hardcore version of it.

Plus, our Marketing Diva is too lazy to erase all this writing (or what he calls, “copy,” to which we say, “Whatever, Elitist”), and come up with something else, so…

Aaaanywhoo….

Yeah, the FIST 50 Guests at 11am will get a FREE DEADPOOL BUTTON of their choice, while they last!!!

We’ll see YOU Saturday… Button Lovers!!!!

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 – CLONE WARS 400 PT GOLDEN AGE CONSTRUCTED
Friday, May 27th from 6:30pm to 9pm

400 pt Golden Age constructed. No team bases. Your team must consist of different versions of the SAME character (Example: multiple versions of Booster Gold, Storm, Shredder, etc.) You may only play 1 copy of any version (meaning set #, not different dial levels) of a particular character, with a 3 figure minimum in effect.

We’re playing for Green Lantern from the Brave and the Bold Organized play kit.

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 constructed tournaments, you’ll need to supply your team, meeting the requirements that week’s format issued. 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 ‘Golden Age’?: Golden Age is essentially an unrestricted format. Any figure can be used, as far back as Marvel HeroClix: Infinity Challenge (the first set). The only figures that cannot be used are the Purple Ringed promo figures, and other non-comic sets, such as Lord of the Rings, Kick-Ass 2, Mage Knight, Yu-Gi-Oh, and DOTA 2 (unless specified by the format). All Errata is in effect for Golden Age play.

How are the prizes distributed?: For standard Constructed play, we usually issue a prize for 1st place, 2nd place, and Fellowship. Fellowship is a sportsmanship prize, and can be awarded to someone who the judge feels carried themselves in an exemplary fashion in demeanor during the event. Usually, if everyone qualifies for the Fellowship prize, this is awarded via roll-off.

Read the rulebook to learn the game…

    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).

    The featured game for this session is... POTION EXPLOSION

    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!
