Have a gander at these nice keys we have here…

EC BOOK CLUB – MOONSHINE BY BRIAN AZZARELLO & EDUARDO RISSO!!!

Tuesday, November 7th from 7pm to 8pm in the EC Events Room

The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8pm to chat about the featured book. We usually begin each meeting with a “Comics 101” slideshow giving some historical, artistic, or social background on the book, and then we dive right into discussion!

The featured book for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting, and that book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting! (The discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).

This month’s featured book is…

MOONSHINE TP VOL 01
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Brian Azzarello (A/CA) Eduardo Risso
From writer BRIAN AZZARELLO and artist, EDUARDO RISSO — the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind the crime classic, 100 Bullets — comes a brutal new series that puts a horror twist on a classic gangster tale!
Set deep in Appalachia during Prohibition, MOONSHINE tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, Hiram Holt. Lou figures it a milk run, but what he doesn’t figure is that Holt’s just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Not only will Holt do anything for his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker, bloodier family secret.

GAMING IN OCTOBER 2017 AT EC!

Every Wednesday, EC and All Things Nerdy host “EC Game Night” where you can Learn & Play a featured game from 6pm-7pm, then stay for Open Play of that game from 7-9pm, or any of our gaming demos of your choice!!!

Saturdays, gaming events with All Things Nerdy run from Noon – 2pm, and you can learn while you play!

WED 10/04 – APPROACHING DAWN: THE WITCHING HOUR

Enter a brand-new world of witches and demons. In Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour, players are coven members who are blood bound, meaning that what one witch does affects another member of the coven. Black magic begets corruption, which is given to other members; conversely, White magic can heal your own corruption. But both types of magic are used to bind and banish the demons, imps, fey, possessed animals, and warlocks entering our world.

Each witch starts with spells that they know, but throughout the game can gain corruption to learn new spells and get familiars and artifacts. But how they choose to use these new cards each hour — whether as Black or White magic — will determine the successful completion of the scene (mission).

In this cooperative card game, each scene (mission) determines the goal of the game. If the scenes are played in order, they form a story arc, but you can play any scene in any order.

Ken Shannon, the creator of the game, will be joining us to show us how to play!

HEROCLIX MINIATURES GAME TOURNAMENTS IN OCTOBER!!!

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 ‘Modern Age’?

Modern Age is essentially an restricted format. Any figure can be used from the list in the link below:
http://win.wizkids.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=12435

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…

…or stop by during a tournament to see how it’s played!

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 9/29/17

September sure has been a slow month for buying collections here at EC.

It’s weird, I’ve never had a month where I came in this far under budget.

No need to worry though, I don’t believe that we will ever suffer from a shortage of sweet stuff that we have to offer.

Take for instance these neat-o comics…

 

Sandman #69, first Daniel Hall as Morpheus, Near Mint Minus (9.2) condition, $35.

New Games! 9/30/17

MASSIVE DARKNESS

 

Massive Darkness brings the classic fantasy RPG experience to modern board gaming, with an action-packed campaign chock full of gorgeous miniatures and a streamlined system that keeps the focus on the heroes’ actions, with no need for a game master to control the enemies.

Using the popular Zombicide system as a starting point, Massive Darkness adds all the richness of a dungeon crawl RPG. Pick your hero, choose a class, decide on which skills to spend your XP, and get loot by searching the dungeon or killing special enemies that can use the equipment against you! Face a multitude of different enemy types, coming in all shapes and sizes, whose behavior is resolved automatically…or you can try to sneak around enemies by taking advantage of dark areas of the map.

Players begin their adventure in Massive Darkness by picking a Hero – each with two special starting skills – and pair them with a Class of their choosing. Depending on the combination, another skill can be unlocked, giving players a wide range of choices and play styles. In Massive Darkness, the created Heroes go on Quests, killing monsters, collecting loot, and gaining XP. Players spend their XP to unlock new Skills, growing more powerful as the Quest progresses.

Throughout the game, players encounter different monsters, including Minions, Agents, Roaming Monsters, and Bosses. An unique mechanism of the game is the Guardian. Any of the monster types have a chance of spawning as a Guardian, meaning it will use a random piece of equipment in the fight against Heroes. However, if players are able to overcome this difficult encounter, they will acquire that piece of loot!

 

 

 

AGE OF THIEVES

 

Age of Thieves is a fantasy board game of strategy and adventure set in Hadria, a port metropolis located on the northern fringes of a mighty Empire. Each player becomes a master thief about to commit the most daring burglary of his career. During the game players may use unique abilities of their thieves as well as various action cards, which represent maneuvers, alchemical potions or complicated devices inspired by visionary ideas of Renaissance inventors. The players choose cards to play and then use available Action Points to plan the order of their activities. This makes the game very dynamic, with each resolved action dramatically influencing the turn. The players’ order changes dynamically depending on the number of Action Points placed on each chosen card.

The goal of the game is to break into the vault inside the Emperor’s palace and steal the Emperors’ Jewel, the symbol of power very precious to the ruling dynasty. However, this is hardly the end, because thieves must escape from the city with their loot. This is no easy task – the streets are patrolled by vigilant city guards and veteran captains well versed in all criminal tricks. Additionally, time is running fast for the thieves – event cards introduced each turn control the flow of the game, escalating its pace and difficulty of challenges for the players to overcome.

The thief who will manage to escape through one of four city gates taking with him the Emperors’ Jewel or other valuable loot will be the winner of the game. Anyone who will stay inside Hadria after resolving the last event card will be caught and mercilessly thrown inside the city dungeon, their names erased from the annals of the omnipotent Guild.

    BEARS VS BABIES

    Bears vs Babies is a card game in which you build handsome, incredible monsters who go to war with horrible, awful babies.

    The shared deck of cards consists of bear parts (and other monster parts) and baby cards. When you draw a part, you use it to build a monster for yourself; when you draw a baby, it goes in the center of the table. When babies are provoked, they attack, and anyone who has fewer monster parts than the number of attacking babies loses their monster; everyone with more parts than babies defeats this infantile army and scores.

    PHOTOSYNTHESIS

    The sun shines brightly on the canopy of the forest, and the trees use this wonderful energy to grow and develop their beautiful foliage. Sow your crops wisely and the shadows of your growing trees could slow your opponents down, but don't forget that the sun revolves around the forest. Welcome to the world of Photosynthesis, the green strategy board game!

    MUNCHKIN WONDERLAND

    Munchkin Wonderland transports players to the iconic world of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland novels. Move around the illustrated game board. If you land on a monster like the Jabberwock or Cheshire Cat, beat it with a roll of the dice and Treasure cards like Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, the Vorpal Blade, or Stolen Tarts! Maybe you'll even get help from the Caterpillar or Dormouse.

    When the deck of Treasure cards runs out, whoever has the most loot wins!

    TOMB OF ANNIHILATION

    In the Tomb of Annihilation Adventure System Board Game, you play a heroic adventurer. With amazing abilities, spells, and magic weapons, you must explore the jungle of Chult, as well as the Tomb of the Nine Gods, where you will fight monsters, overcome traps and find treasure.

    Following in the path of the other critically-acclaimed D&D board games, Tomb of Annihilation features multiple scenarios, challenging quests and game play designed for a single player or a cooperative group of 2-5 players. The Tomb of Annihilation Adventure System Board Game features new trap and spell decks for even more exciting game play content! That’s not all: monsters can now gain conditions!

    Tomb of Annihilation can also be combined with the other D&D Adventure System Cooperative Play Board Games, including the terrifying Temple of Elemental Evil, The Legend of Drizzt, Castle Ravenloft, and Wrath of Ashardalon, to create an even more exciting experience.

    TICKET TO RIDE: GERMANY

    Ticket to Ride: Germany is a standalone game in the Ticket to Ride series. Over the course of the game, players collect cards in order to then claim routes on the game board between two cities. Ideally the players create a network of routes that connect the cities showing on their secret ticket cards. Players score points both for claiming routes and for completing tickets, with incomplete tickets counting against a player's score.

    In addition to scoring points for tickets, whenever a player places a route on the board, they claim a passenger from the two cities that form the endpoints for that route (assuming that the passengers have not already been claimed). At the end of the game, whoever has the most passengers of each of the six colors scores 20 points for that color; whoever has the secondmost passengers in a color scores 10 points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.

    Ticket to Ride: Germany combines most of Zug um Zug: Deutschland and the Deutschland 1902 expansion in one box. Zug um Zug: Deutschland, published solely for the German and Austrian market, consisted of the same map as Ticket to Ride: Märklin, but ZuZ:D didn't include the passenger mechanism from Märklin in which players scored additional points by moving passengers from city to city. The Deutschland 1902 expansion introduced a different method of scoring passengers, and that method is now present in this collection.

    Join us for EC Game Day, as our friends from All Things Nerdy host a Learn & Play session, followed by an Open Play session!

    If you're new to the game, worry not!!! Our ATN friends will help you learn in a friendly, patient and welcoming atmosphere, and you're sure to have lots of fun!!!

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

    The featured game for this session is...

    RAXXON:

    Raxxon is a 1-4 player cooperative card game set in the Dead of Winter universe at the start of the zombie apocalypse. Players each choose one of six different specialists assisting Raxxon with the evacuation of healthy citizens from among the sick. Citizens take the form of face-down square cards in a grid. Through game actions, these can be flipped to reveal whether they are sick or healthy. There are various types of sick and healthy cards, each triggering different effects when flipped or killed. Flip too many Chaotic sick and you'll add more citizens to the crowd, or even end the round prematurely. Killing off the healthy can have similar negative effects.

    Each round begins by creating a crowd - a grid of citizens from the citizen deck. Players take turns performing one action at a time after resolving any consequences marked on their character sheet. Character actions are powerful effects (kill, quarantine, evacuate, etc) that interact spatially with the crowd (killing a row or column, evacuating one card and adjacent cards of your choice) and have stacking consequences. At the start of each turn, a player must resolve all their consequences from previous turns (flip citizens, add citizens, infect citizens, lose evacuated citizens, etc) before performing another action - and adding another consequence. Some consequences require players to draw Raxxon cards. Much like Crossroads cards from Dead of Winter, Raxxon cards feature stories relating to characters in play. Many have multiple parts with different outcomes depending on the choices players make. Often, the choices that make the game easier also grants power to the Raxxon corporation which can lead to defeat. Consequences don't clear until that player passes for the round.

    Once all players have passed, the citizen deck is rebuilt using remaining cards in the deck, the discard, new sick citizens, loosely quarantined citizens, and any cards still in the grid. The deck is shuffled and used to create a new crowd at the start of the next round. Players win when all healthy citizens are evacuated. Players lose if the infection deck runs out (the deck of only sick people added to the citizen deck each round) or Raxxon maxes out on power and takes over the city.

    It’s a bird!

    It’s a plane!

    It’s a new figure from Emerald City Comics and Figures Toy Company!
    figurestoycompany.com/emeraldcitycomicsexclusives.aspx

    Direct from the nearest phone booth he can find, it’s a brand new Clark Kent figure. It looks like we have caught him in the middle of a super transformation!

    Comic fans would feel a sense of excitement when danger hits Metropolis, and Clark Kent would tear open his shirt, revealing the legendary “S” logo as he prepared to become Superman. Emerald City Comics and Figures Toy Company have captured that feeling and used it as inspiration for their latest release! The new Clark Kent figure features a new head sculpt, and is clothed in Clark’s reporter's attire, with his shirt bursting open to show the Superman costume underneath! Additional accessories include removable glasses, a fedora, Superman's uniform, and boots to complete the transformation! It’s like getting two figures in one, with Clark Kent fully transforming into the Man of Steel!

    This is the figure "Mego" toy fans always wanted from when they were kids, and now it can be yours! The new Clark Kent will be making headlines in-store at EC and at www.emeraldcitycomics.com on Friday, October 20th. The new figure will be limited to 200 pieces worldwide, and offered at a retail price of $49.99. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own FTC's first transformable release!
    shop.emeraldcitycomics.com

    Don’t forget about other updates to DC Comics favorites — new Joker and Harley Quinn figures are in the works, as well as others like the Batman Classic TV Series Catwoman figures and the first series of Wonder Woman figures! Those will also arrive in the near future — so make sure you’re keeping up by searching #MMFTCNEWS on social media every Friday, to find out what else is in the works (and when they're expected) from Figures Toy Company!

    CAMPY CREATURES!

    Players are mad scientist in need of precious mortals for future experiments. Rather than getting your hands dirty, your army of campy creatures awaits to do your bidding. Capture the most valuable mortals over the course of three nights to win. But be warned — the mortals won't go down without a fight.

    Campy Creatures is a ghoulish game of bluffing, deduction, and set collection for 2-5 players. Players begin each round with the same hand of creatures. Their goal is to capture valuable mortals by outguessing their opponents with the creatures they play. Each player has perfect information at the start, so knowing what a person might do in a particular situation is key.

    DOOMSDAY CLOCK, from DC Comics!!!

    DC Comics presents to you a 12-issue maxi series from the critically acclaimed team of writer Geoff Johns, artist Gary Frank and colorist Brad Anderson. You are not prepared for what lies ahead within these pages, good readers!

    On sale 11/22/17!!!

    The third image, featuring Rorschach, is the LENTICULAR COVER!

    In the most anticipated story of the year, New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns confirms Watchmen will make an epic return to the DC Universe this November. As “The Button” crossover comes to a close in FLASH #22 this Wednesday, the four page epilogue affirms the mystery will continue with DOOMSDAY CLOCK from Johns and legendary artists Gary Frank and Brad Anderson.

    “It’s time. Last year, the DC Universe confronted the legacy of Watchmen in Rebirth the way Watchmen confronted the legacy of superhero comics three decades ago,” explains writer Geoff Johns. “Thematically, and metaphorically, there was no better choice than to use Dr. Manhattan. If you’re going to have a conflict between optimism and pessimism, a battle between the very forces of hope and despair, you need to have someone who personifies the cynicism that has leaked into our hearts and also has the ability to affect the entire DCU. It’s all paying off this November with DOOMSDAY CLOCK.”

    “DOOMSDAY CLOCK is a story for fans who love the DC Universe and Watchmen and want to see what a master of this genre creates when he puts them together,” says Frank. “As for my artistic approach to the series, each panel is extremely detailed and I am constantly thinking through the position of every single element.”

Was it a mind flayer's psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused your allies to turn traitor? You have no choice but to keep your enemies close!

    Based on the award-winning Betrayal at House on the Hill board game, in Betrayal at Baldur's Gate you'll return to Baldur's Gate again and again thanks to the fifty included scenarios only to discover it's never the same game twice.
