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:

    MONSTERPOCALYPSE: PROTECTORS AND DESTROYERS STARTER SETS

    Monsterpocalypse is a fast-moving, action-packed battle miniatures game played with detailed hobby miniatures that players assemble and paint to portray the most fearsome giant monsters on Earth!

    When the battle begins, you’ll command your monster and lead your units into the city to hunt down and destroy your opponent’s monster. Your monster and units each have weapons and abilities that are activated by special dice to help you achieve ultimate victory.

    Monsters can increase their power throughout the game by smashing buildings and destroying enemy units. When two monsters fight each other, the results are devastating—they can throw each other across the city, rampage through buildings, and suplex each other into radioactive rubble! The last monster standing wins the game.

    MESOZOOIC

    The age of the dinosaurs is back — this time safely behind glass! Build the best dino zoo and impress your guests in a frantic, real-time puzzle game.

    Dinosaurs are back and the world is clamoring to see them! In Mesozooic, it's your job as the director to plan and construct a zoo that will surpass any others. Fill your zoo with a variety of crowd-pleasing features: wow your visitors with towering dinosaur enclosures, entertain them with prehistoric attractions, and let them travel around the zoo in style on a network of monorails.

    Over the course of three rounds, players draft the most desirable features into their hand, piece their zoo together in real-time, and score each layout to see who has created the best zoo.

    After drafting your favorite features, you’ll have to organize them in your zoo—but things won’t always go as planned! Race against time by frantically sliding the cards one at a time to match up features and optimize your zoo’s layout. Complete dinosaur enclosures, connect monorail tracks, and maintain your attractions to score points. The zoo with the best layout will score the most points!

    When drafting cards, you can choose to customize your zoo however you like. Choose from attractions, monorails, dinosaur enclosures, or topiary.

    Guests will be dazzled by the larger-than-life attractions at your zoo. Pterodactyls soar through the aviary, dinosaur eggs hatch in the nursery, and underwater creatures swim through the bright blue waters of the aquarium. Your zoo can include any or all of these attractions! To keep things running smoothly, attractions need to be regularly maintained. In order to score attractions in your zoo, you must keep a maintenance truck next to the attraction.

    While visiting your zoo, guests will need to get around. Hopping on the monorail will quickly transport your guests to other corners of the park. In order to be effective, the monorail’s route must be connected. If you can continue the track, each connection will score points for your zoo.

    The highlight of the zoo is, of course, the dinosaurs themselves! Let guests come face to face with these creatures from another age. Create the perfect environment for gentle herbivores or powerful carnivores, each in their own enclosure. Each completed enclosure will score points.

    Careful planning and quick thinking can give you the edge. Astonish guests with the amazing creatures from a land before time. Will guests flock to your dinosaur zoo?

    TROIKA

    Not far into the future, a stone was found in a star — then more stones were found, and it turns out that if you combine three of these stones in the right way, you create a very valuable jewel. What's more, you can combine them in a different way to create fuel.

    In Troika, you are an adventurer who has dreamed of making a fortune, so you've travelled to this star along with other wanderers. Unfortunately, your spacecraft has no more fuel, so while you'd like to create jewels, if you don't also create fuel, you'll die as the richest person at the end of the universe!

    In the game, you place all the heptagonal tiles face down on the table, and on a turn you either draw a face-down tile or take a face-up tile that someone returned to the table. You have a hand limit of seven tiles, and within that limit you're trying to collect both three tiles of the same number (to serve as fuel) and three tiles in numerical order (to transform into a gem). If you have no fuel, you can't win the game; of those who do have fuel, the player with the most valuable jewel wins.

    LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS RPG

    It is an era of sudden change and upheaval in Rokugan. Mortal schemes, natural calamities, and celestial turmoil alike have disrupted the political, military, and spiritual equilibrium of the land. Long-simmering rivalries and fresh betrayals ripple through the courts and on the battlefield. The Chrysanthemum Throne is beset by threats from without and within, and the honor of the seven Great Clans shall be put to the test. Who among the clans will prove strong enough to guide Rokugan in these tumultuous times? Will their names be lifted up beside those of the honored ancestors, or will they fall among the ranks of the empire’s most infamous villains?

    This is the stage of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Core Rulebook, a new roleplaying experience in the world of Rokugan.

    KING OF TOKYO: ANUBIS MONSTER PACK

    He is coming for you! While rampaging through a history museum, you accidentally stepped on a sarcophagus, causing Anubis to appear, intent upon avenging the profaned mummy. Can you escape the wrath of the God of the Dead as he showers curses on the town?

    The Anubis Monster Pack is compatible with the King of Tokyo and King of New York base games and with all their expansions. The Anubis Monster Pack introduces a new game component in the form of the die of fate! You can use the die of fate in your games even if you play without Evolution cards or are not playing with Anubis.

    SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS: A GEMSTONE MINING GAME

    Play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: A Gemstone Mining Game and press your luck as you collect valuable gems from the mine and earn bonus points by discovering gem combinations from Snow White objectives.

    In the game, which is based on Quartz, you and your fellow dwarfs do what you do best — mine for gemstones. It's off to work you go, collecting as many as you can to trade in for Snow White pie points. Beware of your friends as well as the dangers that lurk in the mine that could force you to return home empty-handed. Have the most pie points after five days in the mine, and you win!

    FALLOUT WASTELAND WARFARE

    In Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, players build their own crew from a wide range of factions, allies, and iconic characters from the Fallout series, then play in apocalyptic games of 3-30 high-quality 32mm scale resin miniatures through a huge variety of iconic scenery and settlement buildings, from the Red Rocket to Sanctuary Hills, Nuka-Cola vending machines and wrecked vehicles. Settlements include buildings, defenses, and resources that impact the crew's army list and abilities in the wasteland.

    Fallout: Wasteland Warfare includes an entire narrative campaign arc as well as unique random missions with narrative-style objectives, and crew caps recovered in missions can be used to improve the crew's perks, weapons, gear, and upgrades for the next encounter. In either player vs. player or tournament mode, players try to survive the tabletop wasteland.

    The game also comes with a customizable solo-play AI deck to control enemies that play to their strengths and replicate a faction's tactics while attempting a narrative mission or perfecting settlement-building strategy. Players can also team up with a friend to defend a larger settlement or explore narrative missions in cooperative games against AI forces or the post-apocalyptic dangers of the wasteland.

    The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare two player starter set contains 32mm scale high-quality hardened PVC miniatures with scenic bases. Miniatures are fully assembled. You can upgrade this with the resin miniatures upgrade kit to get all the miniatures in multi-part high-quality resin.

    RICK AND MORTY TRIVIAL PURSUIT

    Trivial Pursuit: Rick and Morty allows fans of the hit television series to test their knowledge from 600 questions relating to Frienemies, Technology & Science, Locations, Rick and the Family, History & Events and a Wubalubadubdub Wild Card category.

    SPACE PARK

    Ride a rocket to extraordinary destinations across our galaxy. During your travels you will gather exotic crystals that further our understanding of what’s out there. Use these crystals to complete exploration badges and turn them in at the mysterious Outpost 13 to prove yourself as the galaxy’s next great space explorer!

    Space Park features a modular board where seven destinations are randomly arranged to form a circle between players. During a player's turn, rockets will be on three of the board's seven destinations. These rockets symbolize what destinations are available for a player to travel to. Once a player travels to a destination by performing its action, that rocket moves to the next open destination clockwise.

    Destinations feature actions such as gaining a certain type of crystal, acquiring a new badge to work toward, turning in your crystals for Explorer Points, or using your trusty explorer-bot Scout to help out. The player with the most Explorer Points at the end of the game wins.

    MICROPOLIS

    Gather your ants in Micropolis, and send them through the anthill to do your bidding. What do you want? Fruit? Warriors? A queen? Even more ants?!

    Each player starts with a central location that will be surrounded by ten tiles over the course of the game, with the tiles being connected by a series of tunnels. Over ten rounds, players draft tiles one at a time, with the player with the largest army going first. They can take the first tile in line, or place an ant on each tile they want to pass to get to something better. The tiles have various roles on them: Queens who if alone can improve their space; Nannies who give you extra ant soldiers; Architects who let you take any tile for free; Warriors who attack the first player; Generals who manage the movement of your ant soldiers; and Fruit gatherers who collect fruits, which score based on the variety you have.

    Ants at the end of the game are worth one point each, and whoever has the largest army earns an additional 5 points.

    FOLKLORE: THE AFFLICTION

    Embark on a cooperative epic adventure that is Folklore the Affliction. Find and destroy the source of the evil spreading its claws into the heart of the land, decimating its people and resources. Free the denizens from the scourge of vampirism and lycanthropy and expand your power and abilities. Are you a survivor, or will you play as your ghost? Will you fall to the bloodlust or the taint of lycanthropy yourself?

    Folklore: The Affliction is an expandable ongoing horror RPG board game for 1-5 players that focuses on immersive storyline, strategic combat, character development and intense character customization elements. Your successes and failures, encounters and challenges can affect the entire group raising the ante and fueling interaction. Play one of six customizable and unique characters in a quest to gain Lore by conquering the supernatural Afflictions. Travel the land and enter dark locations where the action becomes a miniature based dungeon crawl. Uncover deeper and more intriguing storylines as you go further into darkness in your quest to drive the evil back into the hell it came from.

    Dying in Folklore is not the end for your character... dead characters play on as their ghost with ethereal powers to strike down your foes from beyond the grave. You are never truly out of the action. Customizable abilities even include those that can strengthen your character in the afterlife!

    Left rattled by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, Bruce Wayne must come face to face with the nightmares spawned from the Dark Multiverse. But even though evil devoured evil in the collapse of Challengers Mountain, the Dark Knight still has his doubts. He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of METAL, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse-something both terrifying and oddly familiar.

Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.
    You might say Scott Free has everything...so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.

Find out as Havok, Beast, Warpath, Colossus and Dazzler reluctantly form an all-new, all-different, all-astonishing squad!
