February Events

Welcome to February!  This month is exciting because we have now extended our Sunday hours from 12pm-5pm, and we are now open 11:00am – 7:00pm every Sunday!  This allows us to run major events on both Saturdays and Sunday!  This month in addition to the recent Magic Pre-Releases we’ve got all kinds of great events.  We are beginning game nights for painters and X-Wing enthusiasts. And, of course, many tournaments including those for Magic, Infinity, Warhammer (40K and Fantasy), and High Command.  Looking for a longer gaming experience?  We’ve got league play for Warhammer, Warmachine, Flames of War, Blood Bowl, Dungeons & Dragons, and we have a Warhammer 40K Call to Arms in the works that you can still register for.  Basically we’ve got your gaming fix covered this month!

Happy Gaming!
