Week four of the DC New 52 is underway and boy are some great titles launching this week! We’re keeping them at the top of the list and in the spot light. If you aren’t a member of our subscription service and you are interested in any of these titles I urge you to hit our shelves up quick as D.C. has announced that every title so far has been ordered for at least a second printing due to the heavy demand.
Last Saturday we made our first trip to Cincinnati Comic Con and let me tell you it was sweet! We can’t wait for next year. This Saturday we are hosting a Magic The Gathering Innistrad Prerelease event where we will be having a $20 sealed tournament. Be here at 2pm when we start the fun!

D&D MADNESS AT GARDMORE ABBEY BOX SET – Take heroes into the ruins of Gardmore Abbey, a monastery that was once the base of a militant order of paladins devoted to Bahamut. According to legend, the paladins brought a dark artifact back from a far crusade and stored it in their abbey for safekeeping, and evil forces gathered to assault the abbey and take it back. What the legends don’t tell is that this artifact was actually the Deck of Many Things, a force of pure Chaos. Gardmore Abbey contains four 32-page books that present the adventure location, new monsters, enemies, allies, quests and encounters; two double-sided battle maps depicting dramatic locations in the adventure; die-cut card stock sheets of monster tokens and dungeon tiles; and a deck of 24 cards – 22 cards presenting the Deck of Many Things plus 2 Treasure Cards.

This tome provides Dungeon Masters with a ready assortment of treasures to tempt greedy players, along with historical nuggets and alluring adventure hooks that set these items apart from your run-of-the-mill flaming sword or bag of holding.

Strat-O-Matic Baseball is the ancestor of fantasy sports. Ideal for playing solo or in friendship-bonding face-to-face play, Strat-O-Matic is easy to learn, yet it is challenging enough to entertain for hours as you make the player selections and the offensive and defensive decisions that decide the outcome. Make your lineup and in-game strategy decisions. Roll the dice that activate play (think of it as the “pitch” or “swing”). Then find the result on the statistically designed player card. Every player is unique, giving every dice roll drama!
