Here we are again, serving up another great week of comics and other assorted goodies! Thanks to everyone who came out to the District 9 Tailgate Party last Thursday, it was a great success and we look forward to hosting each and every one. We're still unsure as to whether or not we'll be having one for Halloween 2, but we'll let you know as soon as we know. Anyways, read on for the latest store news and a look into what's coming out this week. See ya at the shop!


As of right now there is no midnight showing posted for Halloween 2 on Thursday, August 27th at the UA Theater on Forrest Avenue. Once we find out if there is one, we'll let you know if we're going to have this tailgate party or not. We shall keep you posted! Don't worry though, there will still be more within the coming months.


As we wave the Resident Evil statue goodbye it's now time to turn our attention to the next item up for grabs. This time we'll be raffling off a $75 gift certificate to the store! As always our raffle tickets cost only $1. This raffle has already begun and you can get your tickets now! The raffle will be ending on Wednesday, August 19th.


You asked for it, you got it! Every Monday we hold Yu-Gi-Oh card tournaments. The formula is very similar to our Magic tournaments. They take place every Monday at around 4:00 PM and the entry fee is one booster pack of your choice. Prizes will be a couple of booster packs or a starter/tournament pack. If you don't know how to play come down anyway and we'll teach you!


Taking place on Saturdays at 3:00 PM, come join us for our weekly Magic the Gathering tournaments. Play is open to all! If you don't know how to play come on by and we'll gladly teach you! Entry fees for the tournament consists of a purchase of a couple of booster packs or tournament/starter pack. If you're interested don't hesitate to come on down and join us.


Tuesday is Trivia Night! The rules are simple and it's a lot of fun. Come down to the store around 6:00 PM for the sign up and choose to play by yourself or with a team (there is no limit to the amount of players on a team). There is a $2 buy in per person, all of the money going to the winning team. At 7:00 PM we'll begin the first of five rounds, each round containing 10 questions. Questions will generally hover around comic, sci-fi, TV, movie and other related trivia. After each round, points will be tallied up by the Quiz Master for that day and then we'll move on to the next round. At the end of the fifth round a winner will be crowned trivia champion. It's a ton of fun and I promise you that if you come once you'll want to come each and every week.
