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!”

all things nerdy
LEARN TO PLAY @ EC!!!

No one gets you into the game like EC!!! We know how scary it can be to venture into gaming if you’ve never done it before – you may not know the people you’re playing with, you’re not sure exactly what you’re doing, you’re afraid others will get frustrated or mad at you, etc.

EC feels your pain and has come to your rescue with our GAMING 101 SERIES!!!

This is a series of quick-and-easy lessons on how to play some of the most popular games, in an environment where you can learn one-on-one, ask questions, go over complex moves and concepts, and practice until you are comfortable joining a group and playing for real!!!

This series is being sponsored by All Things Nerdy, who will also meet at EC on Wednesdays, allowing you to graduate into a group of friendly, welcoming gamers, who will help you increase your skills, while you’re having fun!!!

There are NO DUES, NO ENTRY FEES, NOTHING TO BRING, just show up ready to learn, and ready to have fun!!!

JULY SCHEDULE
(Subject to change.)

Wed., July 13th – MUNCHKIN 6-7pm
Wed., July 20th – CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY 6-7pm
Wed., July 27th – BETRAYAL AT HOUSE ON THE HILL 6-7pm

munchkin
MUNCHKIN BASICS & GAMING NIGHT
Wednesday, July 13th from 6pm to 9pm

The “All Things Nerdy” gaming group will be teaching the MUNCHKIN game!
Other EC Guests are welcome to join the group, or share the Events Room to play other tabletop games.

Find “All Things Nerdy” here on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1124486707580756
“Tabletop games, video games, comics, Pops!, movies, and weekly game night.”

Here’s a taste of what MUNCHKIN is all about:

Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.

Admit it. You love it.

Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure … with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm … or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon….

And it’s illustrated by John Kovalic!

Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can steal their stuff.

In the DC Comics Deck-building Game, you take on the role of Batman, Superman, or one of their brave and heroic allies in the struggle against the forces of Super-Villainy! While you begin armed only with basic combat maneuvers, you will add new, more powerful cards to your deck as you go, with the goal of defeating as many of the DC Comics Super-Villains as you can. In the end, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins the game!

Play as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, or Cyborg. The Justice League is ready for action!

Each DC Comics Super Hero has a unique special ability that will open up different strategies to the player.

CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY GAMING NIGHT
Wednesday, July 20th from 6pm to 9pm

The “All Things Nerdy” gaming group will be teaching the CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY game!
Other EC Guests are welcome to join the group, or share the Events Room to play other tabletop games.

* Please note that CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY is a game for adults only, and its words and phrases may be offensive to some players.

Find “All Things Nerdy” here on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1124486707580756
“Tabletop games, video games, comics, Pops!, movies, and weekly game night.”

Here’s what the makers of CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY have to say about their game:

“Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.

The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.”

The game is a party game in which players complete fill-in-the-blank statements using typically offensive, risque or politically incorrect words or phrases printed on playing cards.

The game is available for free under a Creative Commons license. Making a set will take an hour and cost about $10. Download the PDF for rules and printing instructions:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/cah/CAH_MainGame.pdf

The makers of the game do not make it available for sale to us currently — but you do have another option! Enter CRABS ADJUST HUMIDITY, which its makers call “a crappy little third-party, unofficial, unauthorized expansion card set that blends seamlessly with the original game and adds many morally-questionable new cards to play”! Emerald City DOES carry the deluxe “Omniclaw” edition of this game!!!

HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT MEETUP
HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT – COSMIC CLASH 400 PT. GOLDEN AGE CONSTRUCTED
Friday, July 22nd from 6:30pm to 9pm

$3 entry fee. 400 points. Golden Age format. At least one character on your force must possess the ‘Cosmic’ keyword.

We’re playing for Gamora from the Marvel Comcs Guardians of the Galaxy 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…

“JUSTIN’S JABBER” — BACK ISSUES
—————————————————

 

Justin Wallner is the Back Issues Merchant at EC, and each week he likes to “jabber” about the new key back issues we’ve received! Here’s his latest report:

 

If you’re in the market for some highly collectible comics, you could do a whole lot worse than these:

 

marvel+premiere_15
Marvel Premiere #15, first appearance of Iron Fist, Fine Plus (6.5) condition, $200.
He’s gonna have his own show soon!

 

Tales_of_Suspense_Vol_1_98
Tales of Suspense #98, Fine/Very Fine (7.0) condition, $35.
This book is kinda “en fuego” at the moment.
Could it be the cool Cap versus Black Panther cover?
Could it be that this book is popular due to the fact that it’s the first appearance of Whitney “Madame Masque” Frost?
Perhaps a little from column A and a little from column B…

 

infinite_crisis_fight_for_the_multiverse_1
Infinite Crisis: Fight For The Multiverse #1, 1:25 Terry & Rachel Dodson Harley Quinn variant cover, Near Mint Minus (9.2) condition, $150.
Tough book to find + Harley Quinn = super hot book.
Basic comic book store math.

 

batman_14
Batman #14 (2011 series), 1:100 Black & White variant cover, Very Fine Plus (8.5) condition, $40.
Same equation as above, but add the term EXTREMELY before the phrase “tough book to find” and exchange the proper noun “Joker” for “Harley Quinn.”
See? Math’s not so hard!

 

(Please note that the digital samples shown are for clear image references only, and are NOT the actual books being offered for sale. Please call us at 727-398-2665 for condition, availability, or any other questions about the books!)

 

We have a lot more where those came from on our two — count em’ TWO — vintage comics walls! So stop in for a nostalgic treat, or check out our online shop for select vintage comics:

    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!!!
