Our friends across 113th Avenue at Mercury Medical are allowing our Guests to use their huge parking lot, just past their building on the right after you pass our parking lot! The attached image shows you the yellow circles that are okay to park in, and the red X’s where the other businesses do not allow parking in. If the “approved” lots fill up, it is definitely better to park along 113th Avenue than in one of the “unapproved” lots. It’s possible that another business owner could have vehicles towed from those lots.

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 – 500 PT GOLDEN AGE CONSTRUCTED
Friday, May 13th from 6:30pm to 9pm

$3 entry fee.

500 pt Golden Age constructed.  No team bases.

We’re playing for Rhino from the Sinister 6 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…

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT LLC
(W) Matt Kindt (A) Clayton Crain, David Mack (CA) Clayton Crain
In the tradition of BOOK OF DEATH, ARMOR HUNTERS, and HARBINGER WARS, Valiant’s most ambitious crossover event yet starts here! At the dawn of the 41st century, the future of Earth will be decided in the stars. This May…the rebellion begins in 4001 A.D.!
One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artifi cial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people will thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society – one built on peace, prosperity… and Father’s control.
A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question. Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister
secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…
Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself… on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.

    The demented geniuses at Bad Lip Reading have done it again!!! This time, they've light-sabered Star Wars The Force Awakens, and it's nothing short of hilarious!!!

    Once you're done giggling, you can stop by and see your friends at Emerald City Comics, where we have an entire Star Wars section... that is nothing to laugh at!!! It's filled with treasures you won't find anywhere else in one place!!!

    Enjoy!!!
