HERE KITTY, KITTY! Game Demonstration!
Sunday, April 3rd from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a Here Kitty, Kitty! 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:

Your neighborhood has a cat problem! The problem is that all those cats don’t belong to YOU! Everyone in the neighborhood wants to claim those adorable kitties for themselves.

Outwit your fellow feline aficionados as you lure cats onto your property, move cats into your house, and steal cats from your neighbors. All’s fair in love and cat collecting!

There are no blenders or explosions in this game, but if you use your “Catlike Reflexes” and avoid “Stray Dogs” and “Hairballs,” you might just “Land on Your Feet!”

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

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!”

TCHOTCHKE TREASURES @ EC!!!

In lots of our posts where we boast about having the best comics, books, games, toys, etc., we often include the word “tchotchkes”, and some of you may be wondering, “What on earth is that?!?”

Well, “tchotchke”, pronounced “CHACH-KEE” (kind of like “Joanie Loves Chachie”, with a “k” towards the end, if that helps), is a noun which translates as “a small object that is decorative rather than strictly functional; a trinket”, and is sometimes used as another word for “swag”, (or, free promotional items given at movie premieres, comic cons… or every Wednesday and most Saturdays at EC)!

Here at EC, we recently redesigned the tchotchke areas at our front counter so that you can easily peruse our buttons, magnets, bottle openers, keychains, car stickers, wallets, Mystery Mini blind boxes, loose figures and more!!!

If you need that perfect accent for your backpack or handbag, want to spice up your car’s window or bumper, or you want a nice “just thinking of you” gift, you’ll find something that’s “just right” here!!!

Another thing we’ve added at our front counter is a deep jar filled with FREE CANDY!!! So, please help yourself the next time you come in to make a purchase! (Please note that only the candy in the jar marked “FREE!” is our gift to you; the other containers of mints and gum are only a few pennies, so please pay for those items – thanks!)

At Emerald City Comics, your BEST tchotchkes are HERE!!!

 

TT2
This side is our most popular, because it’s where we keep our Mystery Minis and magnets, which are very sought-after items!

 

TT3
We have some of the most unique, character-based bottle openers around!

 

TT4
If you find yourself in need of a new keychain, we have a wide variety to choose form!

 

TT5
Ice cube trays? Sure, why not?

 

TT6
Did you know that if you open your Mystery Mini box at the register and you don’t like the one you got, you can trade it for the figure that is sitting atop the box!!! (We don’t think you can do that at any of the other stores, so why not get them here and increase your chances of getting the ones you want?)

 

TT7
Buttons, we got buttons…!

 

TT8
Here’s a bird’s-eye-view! Buttons are a big favorite at EC!!!

 

TT9
Your fridge could have the coolest magnets ever!!!

 

TT10
“What’s in – uh, we mean, what’s ON your wallet?”

 

TT11
We have lots of sweet stickers for your ride!!!

 

TT12
“Holy bottle openers, Batman!!!”

 

TT13
When you take your purchases to the front counter, you can read up on the next Wednesday and Saturday events, while enjoying a free piece of candy! What can we say? We’re sweet on you!!!

    Emerald City Comics

    SUNSET OVER WATER

    Sometimes you need to get off the beaten path to find a beautiful landscape to paint. Wake up early, hike deep into nature, and find your perfect spot. Some paintings sell for commissions, others you’ll keep for yourself, but you’re always going that extra mile to find inspiration.

    Over six days, players gain Renown by hiking to beautiful locations to paint landscapes, which they’ll later sell. Each day, players choose a Planning Card, which allows them to travel through the Wilderness and paint (i.e., pick up Landscape Cards). At day’s end, they can sell paintings to earn Renown (i.e., turn in Landscape Cards to gain Commission cards worth Renown). Players also earn Renown by completing Daily Goals and by possessing Landscape Paintings at game’s end.

    NINJAK VS THE VALIANT UNIVERSE CARD GAME

    Free promo cards and Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe comic included! (While supplies last).

    The greatest heroes in the VALIANT UNIVERSE must team up to stop one of their own! NINJAK, MI-6's deadliest operative, has stolen an object of immense power and you must build up your power in order to survive against all the gadgets and threats he will throw at you while working towards your hidden agenda.

    It won't be easy... are you up for the challenge?

    Throughout the game, you will collect various tactics and artifacts that both make you more powerful so you can fight Ninjak while also earning you points towards your hidden agenda. The game ends after all of Ninjak's threats have been eliminated. You will need to work together with the other players to survive, but only the one who best completes their hidden objective will win the game.

    Warning: Contains violent images.

    ENDLESS PASS

    Enter the Endless Pass, survive the never-ending horde of the Endless, and compete with other vikings to claim the title of Conqueror of the Pass!

    In Endless Pass, players fight the scaly Endless to gain glory. The pass is also filled with weapons and runes to aid in defeating Endless, while allowing you to heal yourself. Combined with your action cards like attack, defend, evade, steal, and hide, you have more ways to defeat, evade, or defend against the Endless. However, whatever Endless are not defeated continue to plague the other vikings as they walk the Pass! You may also battle the other vikings. After all, you are fighting for glory and a place in Valhalla.

    The last viking standing or the first to acquire ten glory, while surviving the turn, wins the game. If none of the players survive, then the player with most glory is declared the Conqueror in Valhalla.

    5 MINUTE DUNGEON

    5 Minute Dungeon is a chaotic, co-­operative, real-­time card game in which players have only five minutes to escape the randomized dungeon. Communication and teamwork are critical to survival because there's no time to form a carefully considered plan — and no predicting what dangers lie ahead.

    In more detail, players assume the role of one of ten heroes, each with special cards and abilities. Once the five-minute timer starts, the race is on to defeat all the monsters inside the dungeon. In order to defeat a monster, players must match symbols from their hand with ones on the monster's card. At the end of each dungeon is a powerful dungeon boss — and after the first boss is defeated, the campaign continues to the second boss. Each boss, and each randomized dungeon, gets harder until players reach the fifth and final boss.

    LEGENDARY CREATURES

    There is a great buzz of excitement throughout the halls of Kajan, the School of Life, as the High Council has announced a Trial of Nature’s Grace! When a group of apprentices show sufficient promise, a Trial is called. Over a period of three days the apprentices racing through the realms attempting to earn renown in the minds of their teachers, but most importantly in the eyes of the fantastic creatures. Each student is given an Amulet, allowed the same three spells, and start their travels with an identical group of creatures who aid them with magical energy and fantastic abilities.

    The objective of Legendary Creatures is to win the trial and advance to the rank of Druid. Players do this with the aid of fantastic creatures who assist them in their quest for renown, whatever form it may take. An apprentice’s final rank in each elemental realm, renown earned through great feats, and expeditions to distant landmarks determines who becomes the next Druid!

    Legendary Creatures is played over three days, each of which consists of AM, Afternoon, and PM turns. Players draw 4 creatures from their individual decks, then play 3 into their stable and send one on a solo expedition. Order and types of creatures determine initiative and resource generation for the round. Players then take turns selecting the realm they'd like to travel in, the resources they generate, and the spells they cast. This is repeated each portion of the day with a final expedition at the end of the PM portion. Ultimate leadership in each realm and via their expeditions reward victory points to determine the winner.

    Here is the book that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!).

    BAT-FANS, REJOICE!!! A LOST ADAM WEST CLIP APPEARS!!!

    Holy safety tips!!!

    Fans of Adam West and his Batman 66 series have a lot to be excited about today!!! A new PSA from May of 1967 has found its way from Britain to the United States!!! It has never been seen before stateside, and features Batman teaching kids the proper way to cross the street, known as the Kerb Drill!!!

    The PSA is beautifully over-the-top as you would expect, but the highlight is the extremely long, (and excruciatingly awkward), pause in which Batman is holding a young boy, waiting for the director to yell, "cut"!

    Sadly, Mr. West passed away last June, but as this clip proves, he was a great talent who can bring joy by merely standing still!!!

    If you're looking for Batman '66 items, your friends at EC have a Batcave full of books, comics, games, toys, collectibles and tchotchkes, waiting for you at our same Bat-Time, same Bat Channel!!!

    Just be careful as you cross the street to get here!!! ENJOY, citizens!!!youtube.com

    Ratland

    This is a Kickstarter game that will only be avaliable while supplies last

    Make your rat clan the most powerful gang of the sewer!

    In Ratland, each player controls a rat clan and they will try to turn them into the most crowded one. To achieve such a task, you´ll have to outwit your opponents to get the most possible food you can, even if you have to snatch it from your neighbors! But beware, they will try to do the same to you.

    Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War

    Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War is a cooperative dice and card game for 2-4 players.

    In the game, players recruit heroes and assemble a team to face off against Thanos and his villainous forces in an effort to thwart him from accomplishing his master plan: Collecting all six Infinity Stones to power the Infinity Gauntlet and wreak havoc on the very fabric of reality. Building upon the strengths of the characters on their team, as well as other players, winning requires critical thinking and communication to reach a common goal.

    Halloween

    It's Halloween — time to haunt poor unfortunate humans who think the holiday is all fun and games, but wait until you unleash ghosts upon this little town. Use your knowledge and wit to summon ghosts, move them around town, scare people, and even fight other ghosts because only one demon lord can boast of being the scariest demon lord of them all.

    Halloween is a tactical game for 2 to 4 players in which you take on the role of a demon lord that controls the many ghosts on the board. Carefully plan your actions through a unique mechanism that allows you to manage multiple ghosts to try to outwit your opponents. Summon ghosts, move them round the board, fight other ghosts, or use one of the numerous action cards that can give you great tactical advantage.

    Black Souls

    Designer Inc's latest video game title Black Souls has achieved international success! Hailed as one of the toughest digital games ever, it has attracted millions of hardcore gamers. The secret behind this huge success lies not in just making an extremely difficult game. Anyone can do that. The true challenge lies in balancing it to be as difficult as possible, but still fair enough that the very best players can survive to the end. Alas, the game studio is heavily short staffed and the management is looking to hire one more Game Designer for developing more content in Black Souls.

    You have been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be hired by Designer Inc as a level designer, an integral part of Black Souls' development team! As one of the finalist candidates, you must prove your designing skills under the judging eyes of your future employers in an 'Early Beta Access' trial to create a level that best reflects the spirit of Black Souls - a very difficult, yet fair game. A group of seasoned playtesters will be sent to try out your carefully designed level, and provide feedback on whether they like or dislike it at the end of the run. If the level is too easy, they would not feel challenged at all. If it is too hard, they would all be killed and find it unfair. Who will be the final candidate to be inducted into the ranks of Designer Inc?

    This is a uniquely themed game - A game about designing a game!

    Monopoly Gamer (Standard and Collectors Edition)

    It's the Monopoly game with a Nintendo twist as it joins forces with beloved Nintendo video game characters. Instead of standard Monopoly tokens, the game features Super Mario characters, each with their own special powers within gameplay. Play as Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, or Donkey Kong. Finish the game by defeating Bowser at the end! It's not just about money in this game; players earn points by buying Properties, collecting Coins, and beating Bosses. The player with the highest score wins the game.

    Coins replace Monopoly money
    Power-up die activates special abilities

    RISE TO NOBILITY

    Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where a fragile peace was brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, a place where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose being to bring them closer and prevent another war.

    The Queen needs to keep the alliance between the races and ensure that Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with Berk the Town Clerk as its chairman — but Berk is getting old and needs a successor. Are you that person?

    Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. You each own a small piece of land in the newly built city, and your job is to rise from anonymity, make your way to the title of lord, and take over the head seat at the Stone Council.

    You can achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers' council, attracting and housing as many settlers as you can, accommodating their needs, finding them jobs, and helping them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people in high places all around the city of Caveborn.

    WEREBEASTS

    You are a key player in the lucrative but dangerous business of collecting werebeasts. Armed with only your good looks and several cans of indescribably tasty werechow, you must bid for the werebeasts you need — and also for the ones you don't in hopes of throwing your opponents off track.

    Your fellow collectors in Werebeasts are also collecting certain creatures that have the most value to them. If you can hide your intentions long enough, you'll be rewarded. If you can make it to the end of the game without getting caught, you just might win.

    SABORDAGE

    The famous pirate Blackbeard has summoned you to his deathbed and entrusts you with his dearest secret: the location of his hidden treasure! But the old rascal played one last trick on you by also revealing the location to every renowned pirate on the seven seas. The race is on, but in order to reach the treasure, you need a ship, sturdy and fast — except everyone has had the same idea and the battle is already raging in the harbor before the ships have even been completed!

    Figure out how to finish your ship first in Sabordage, and you'll be on your way to treasure!

    DISNEY'S A WRINKLE IN TIME

    A Wrinkle In Time: Daring Adventure Game is a cooperative dice game that captures the journey of the 2018 theatrical adaptation of the Madeline L'Engle novel.

    In the game, players take on the role of the story's main characters — Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin — and work together to solve mathematical puzzles, decode secret messages, and tesser to new locations to rescue Mr. Murry and get home. The engineering of a hexaflexagon is behind the "Flex Enfolders", which when used in conjunction with dice rolls must sum up to progress through five movie-based locations, or levels.

    A coding portion of each round relies on players' abilities to communicate and lay out an "operation chain" that aims to generate a successful result, after which they will use the color filtration of Mrs. Who's "Quizzing Glasses" to reveal Mr. Murry's hidden whereabouts.
