Do you enjoy Board games? Got a fantastic new game and no one at home to play it with? Well, bring it on down to our Emerald City Board Game Meet-Ups!

No purchase necessary to come down and have fun! The festivities start at 5pm. Even if you don’t have your own games to play, fear not — we have a wide variety of free-to-play demonstration copies for anyone to use in our game room!

Drink and snack purchases are available!

Our Board Game Meet-ups are open to all — players under age 13 are welcome with an adult.

 

 

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!”

Drafting Instructions: Players open their boosters and draft a team of 5 figures from the boosters — for the purpose of drafting, seat all players in groups of 4.

tabletop day
INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY
Saturday, April 30th from 11am to 9pm

This is a celebration of all things TABLETOP!

All day long, games will be 20% OFF!!! This includes board games, trading card games, miniatures games, role-playing games, and any supplies in our games category such as paints and dice!

Join us for an all-day event of tabletop gaming. All are welcome to come and play. We look forward to seeing our gaming community come together to support this event, and to see anyone who has ever wanted to “roll dice” come visit and learn to play!

Every International Tabletop Day we here at EC strive to make it the best day of gaming for you!

To this end we have set up several games to be demonstrated throughout the day!

Check out the list below!*

FUSE
Intruders have made their way on to your ship! Their goal: Total Destruction! Twenty bombs have been detected onboard, and the countdown has begun. Your elite Bomb Defusal Team (BDT) has been called to neutralize the threat. Does your team have what it takes to work through the intricacies of the bombs and defuse them in time? You’d better get moving, because this game will self-destruct in 10-minutes… FUSE is a real-time, cooperative dice game where players work together to quickly save their ship from impending doom!

ONITAMA
Carved into the crags of the mist-shrouded mountains of ancient Japan lies the ancient shrine of Onitama. Masters of the Arts journey there with their most promising disciples to prove their superiority in battle. Part of the Dice Tower Essential line, Onitama is an elegant, abstract strategy game which captures the flavor of martial arts. In this game of elegance and simplicity, two players compete in 10-15 minute matches. With endless re-playability, players can be engaged for hours! Will you hazard the journey and meet within Onitama’s hallowed walls to prove your superiority?

DINGO’S DREAMS
Dingo and his friends have gotten lost on Walkabout! Visit their dreams to lead them home!
Dingo’s Dreams is a delightful and clever family game for 2-4 players. Each player competes to be the first to successfully guide his animal through the dream world.

SUPERFIGHT
In Superfight, Skybound’s wildly popular party game of absurd arguments, players use cards to generate ridiculous characters and then argue about who would win in a fight. From this 500-card core deck, you might have a T-rex with laser eyes VS. Bruce Lee made of steel, or a pirate swinging a shark on a chain VS. a kindergarten class that breathes fire!

CASH N’GUNS
Short Tempers! Cold Cash! Hot Lead! The big heist may have been a success, but it all goes wrong when every crook wants a larger cut. With this much money on the table, bullets speak louder than words! In Cash ‘n Guns, players point foam pistols at each other and try to intimidate their opponents into letting them have the largest share. The bravest crooks enjoy the most money – but only if they live long enough to spend it!

PADEMIC: THE CURE
In Pandemic: The Cure, a stand-alone, dice-based version of the award-winning Pandemic board game, four diseases threaten the world and it falls to your team to save humanity. Players take on different roles, each with its own unique set of dice and abilities, and must take advantage of their specializations if they have any hope of (surviving!) winning the game. If, at any time, a region is infected with more than three dice of a given color, an outbreak occurs, spreading disease into an adjacent region. If too many outbreaks take place, or the rate of contamination gets too high, all the players lose. If, however, the players can discover the cures to the four diseases, humanity endures…until the next epidemic!

Our friends at Gamer’s On The Edge will be running a demonstration table with the following games. They will also be holding raffles for prizes. Donations go the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
http://www.gamersontheedge.com/

MUNCHKIN
Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run. Designed by Steve Jackson, the Munchkin card game captures the essence of the dungeon experience as you and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items!

LOVE LETTER
All of the eligible young men (and many of the not-so-young) seek to woo Princess Annette of Tempest. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and you must rely on others to bring your romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first? Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2-4 suitors.

Double Exposure Envoy Bill Eastman will also be on hand to demonstrate the following games. Trying out these games will gain you some International Tabletop Day giveaways while supplies last.

CASTLE PANIC
The forest is filled with all sorts of monsters. They watched and waited as you built your castle and trained your soldiers – but now they`ve gathered their army and are marching out of the woods! Can you work with your friends to defend your castle, or will the monsters tear down your walls and destroy the precious castle towers?

DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
Walk the twisted streets of the Mad City in a boardgame that fuses worker placement with deck building. Extract dreams in the City Slumbering, and use them to buy favors from Nightmares. Procure special services in the Bizarre Bazaar. Score points through skillful play in Mother Whens deadly High School and the sinister 13th District. Compete for the Wax Kings favor, and the ultimate prize…escape! In this game rooted in the sinister world of the Dont Rest Your Head roleplaying game, your opponents lurk around every corner, waiting to attack. Can you outsmart your friends and win the Nightmares game? Whatever you do, Don’t Turn Your Back!

*Times when the demonstrations will be running will be listed soon.

We will also be featuring a Paint & Take table. There will be plenty of paints and brushes for you to paint a miniature and take that miniature home with you!

Hungry? David’s Dawg House will be on hand to take care of your hunger!

ApexTheropod
APEX THEROPOD: DECK-BUILDING GAME – 2ND EDITION
Apex is a deck-building game, played solo or with up to 5 friends. You play as a prehistoric predator competing for territory and resources against other predators. Each playable species has a unique deck to master. Each deck has different strengths, weaknesses, and strategies— creating a varied and constantly evolving experience.
Your species must overcome a very brutal environment including harsh climate changes, disease, attacks from predators, grievous wounds, infections, and deadly prey. The game incorporates many dinosaurs that behave in their own distinct way. The goal of the game is to endure the environment, build up the population and evolve your species, and become the apex predator.

 

DragonPunch
DRAGON PUNCH
Take it Anywhere, Play it Anywhere! Ready to Fight? Dragon Punch is a super-fast, ultra-portable, two-player card game that plays just like your favorite fighting games – it’s all about trying to outwit your opponent with the timing and positioning of your attacks and defenses. Dragon Punch doesn’t require a table or other surface to play, and the tiny wallet fits right in your pocket.

 

Kenjin
KENJIN
A merciless war is raging throughout feudal Japan, fueled by the hunger for power or the desire for peace of its great lords. As one of them, you must defend your territory from the enemy threatening your borders. Now it’s time to command you troops and read through your opponent’s strategy to take over the battlefield and prevail!

 

MillenniumBlades
MILLENNIUM BLADES
Millennium Blades is a board game about a fictional collectible card game, which is also called Millennium Blades. You begin the game on pre-release night with just your starter deck. You’ll open new packs, form collections, and sell your junk cards on the aftermarket to buy hot new cards. Trade with your friends, build up your deck, and prepare to compete at Millennium Blades Worlds for the title of World Champion! This is a game about competitive deck building. You get a limited pool of cards, and then you tinker them into the most unfairly over-powered, table-flippingly broken deck that you can imagine. And your deck had better be pretty crazy, because your opponents won’t be giving any quarter, and they all have unique collections with access to their own high-tier power cards. In addition to deckbuilding, you’ll be speculating on blind pack buys, selling and buying cards on the aftermarket, and fusing your cards to make rarer and better ones to get an advantage over the competition. You might even make a few friends, if you’re willing to help them out.

 

VsSystemAForce
VS SYSTEM 2PCG: MARVEL A-FORCE EXPANSION
In VS System: 2PCG, players choose a main character, build a deck with exactly sixty cards, and attempt to stun the other player’s main character in a game of superhero battles and suspense! This expansion features all new playable content based on Marvel’s A-Force.

WIZKIDS CLIXFX BASE ACCESSORY KIT
The ClixFX Accessory Pack contains eleven sculpted bases for use in your HeroClix campaigns that act as visual indicators of ongoing game effects from standard or special powers, including Smoke, Ice/Wall, Web, and more!

    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.

    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.

    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.
