Casual Magic Drafts only $9 

Starting Wed. Jan. 6 and continuing indefinitely our weekly Wednesday Magic Draft will only cost $9. Players will still receive three packs and keep all cards drafted. Winners will receive promo cards. A great way to build your collection and practice deck building while saving money. That’s every Wednesday at 7pm.

Board Game Degree Program

Starting in February Wizards Asylum will partner with Tabletop University to offer a Board Gaming degree. Details will be available soon, but the general idea is to create a fun way to encourage trying out a variety of games. There will be bonus points for winning and attendance. Can you be the first person to earn this prestigious honor?

Come out every Thursday at 7pm to earn credits and learn to play some great games.

Pokemon League

We are in the process of bringing this great FREE program to the store. Watch for an official announcement in January.

Birthday Party Packages

No later than Thursday the 7th, our website will be updated to include a variety of birthday party packages including options for Pokemon and Magic learn and play events and Superhero photo ops.

Saturday Deck Clinics and Casual Tournament

Starting Saturday Jan. at 1pm and continuing indefinitely we will have staff members dedicated to teaching and coaching new players. Loaner decks available. Tutorials fun from 1-2pm and are FREE. The tournament starts at 2 and is limited to novice level players.

On a personal note my resolution for the year is only play fully painted models in any miniatures game. With that in mind, I gotta stop typing and start painting.

Let there be ART. More unique Gift ideas at Wizards Asylum

001

After lengthy and intricate negotiations I am happy to announce that some of Candace Bollinger’s wonderful game-themed photographs are available for purchase at Wizards Asylum. Just in time for gift giving season!!

003

In other holiday news, We’re in the process of arranging some complimentary Super Hero Santa photo ops. Stay tuned for details on dates and times. We’re hammering out the details but expect a Batman Santa, a Spiderman Santa and a Deadpool Santa.

We are offering gift registry again this year. Simply come in and fill out a wish list and your friends and family will be able to get you exactly what you want and save 10% in the process.

 

Today I will be choosing and assembling my forces for the upcoming Warhammer 40K escalation league.  I’m going with Ravenwing. These biker boys have always been a favorite of mine and i need a break from Orks. I will be using some of them in the FREE painting demonstration that I will be doing this Sunday.  Also on the 40k front,  we have a tournament on December 12th.

 

In closing, Chicken Charades.

No further explanation forthcoming or required.

simply

Chicken Charades is here!

Battle For Zendikar Pinata Clarifications

006

Some safety concerns have been expressed regarding our Pinata Party.  Not to worry, this will not be a traditional scramble/shoving match for the loot. The floor beneath the pinata will be marked with a numbered grid. Each patron registered in two or more Pre-Release Events will be assigned a grid per entry. They will be entitled to all loot that lands in their grids. Loot on the line will go to the grid with the least other loot. This means YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PRESENT TO WIN!!! Any stray loot that makes it into the crowd goes to anyone that catches it in air. If it hits the ground it will be distributed into the squares with the least loot. As we have never made a Hedron Pinata before and dont have a spare to test on, we reserve the right to re-scatter loot as we see fit if too much goes to anyone individual. The goal is a fun somewhat silly distribution of “door” prizes.

Yes we will be using Garruk’s Axe to smash the Hedron Pinata.

 

In other news, We finally got Pitch Car and Baseball Highlights in store!

 

 

 

Battle for Zendikar Custom Play Mats and a Malifaux Love Story

2015-09-23 13.49.48

Check out the Blanks for the Custom Playmats we are giving away during our Battle for Zendikar Pre-Release Events this weekend. The recipient of each mat will be personalized with the recipients name and card art of their choice to create a one of a kind keepsake. Champions will each receive one of these special prizes, but also some will go our as door prizes or pinata prizes. Hope to see you for the many fun activities we have planned.

2015-09-23 13.43.58

Meet my latest love,  Chiak, the Niece. She’s part of the Yan Lo Crew I’m running in our Malifaux league.

I continue to be impressed with this miniature game. If you aren’t familiar with it, its very unique. It uses decks of cards instead of dice for number generation. Players have a hand to use each turn to change the random results thus bringing bluffing and hand management into the decision process. Add that to the wide range of factions available to play and the low point of entry and you have quite an elegant game.

Come down and get a demo or join the league, its free and we’ll even loan you models.

MTG Zendikar Pre-Release Pinata Party

044

The Devin Daily Blog is back!!!

I’m so inspired by the crazy fun we have planned for the Battle for Zendikar pre-release Event that I’m coming off my blog hiatus.

Believe it or not we are making a Pinata out of the Zendikar Hedron. It will be stuffed with packs, singles, coupons  and other goodies. Garruk will be loaning us his axe for the occasion.  Around eight o’clock on Saturday, after the first round of the Pre-release, we will smash the thing and let the prizes fall as they may.  Anyone who plays in two or more of our pre-release event will be eligible to participate. This is just one of the special treats we have planned for the weekend. Check out our Facebook Events page for more details.

Custom Play-mats, Door prizes Eldrazi Hats, Bounties and more. Should be a crazy weekend.

In case Magic isn’t your thing, Saturday is also Batman Day. Come in and check out the store-wide specials on Batman related merchandise.

The wacky fun continues into October. Thursday Oct. 8th we will partner with Newman University’s Board Game Club for a Seven Wonders Tournament. $5 entry.  Two lucky players will walk away with a copy of the game. One for the champion and one as a random door prize. There will also playmats, alternate art cards and other nifty goodies distributed to top finishers and random participants. If you haven’t tried Seven Wonders get on down to the store and we will demo it for you. Its a fast paced yet intricate drafting game with multiple paths to victory.

2015-07-05 18.51.22

And we have Roller Girls. On Saturday Oct. 10th we bring you

Get Smashed with the ICT Roller Girls!

Smash-up Tournament starts at 2pm. If you don’t know how to play, no problem we will be demoing it starting at noon right up until the event starts. Prizes include store credit and tickets to the Roller Girls Monster Mash Up event.

Magic Unglued and Unhinged tonight.

 

004

All righty folks here’s your chance to play with Carnivorous Death-Parrot, or to give someone a Wet Willie of the Damned.

003

We will be cube drafting Unglued and Unhinged tonight. We have assembled an official cube of Magic’s two comedy set. Our box includes one of every rare, two of every uncommon and four of every common. If you have never played with these cards you are in for a treat provided you don’t take things to seriously. A perfect precursor to the Origins Pre-Release events this week end.

Look Who is in the house. Dr. Who that is…all popped up.

005

 

And how about a little Orkitecture.

002

Sweet  fuel hanger for our upcoming Narrative 40k Event.

 

 

“I don’t Need Your Civil War” –Axel Rose

20150708_124708

That’s right Mr Rose, we don’t need it cause we just got it.  A collection came in that not only has the complete main story but almost all of the key tie-ins. Here’s just a few.

Shark Week!!! Board Game Blowout, Dominion Update

 

004

 

In celebration of Shark Week we have two graphic novels from the Discovery Channel.

005

The sub-title of the Great White Book is ” everything else is just food”.

We also got restocked on some of the very popular cardboard children’s books.

006

 

 

I really don’t want to put the on sale games from this weekend back on the shelves. If you come in and mention the Devin Daily blog you can take another 25% off the already discounted prices on anything on the sale table or in the sale area.  For example, Nations with an MSRP of $99 would be $45.00 after the extra discount.

I am very excited about our Wacky Wednesday Magic Unglued Event. Come out and get your silly on.

I have decided to make tonight the first night to officially record scores for the Dominion League. Several factors contributed to this choice. We uncovered a few errors in some of the early games that radically affected the outcomes and then a results sheet went missing before it made it to the computer so it seems best and easiest to call this first week practice.

 

 

Dominion League Heats Up! Age of Sigmar Reviewed

007

We have Roller Girls!! If you hadn’t already heard we are proud sponsors of the ICT Roller Girls penalty box this season. Several of the girls have joined our Dominion League and they are out for blood. Its  not  too late to join. The rules allow newcomers to make up missed games. Official play happens each Tuesday but games can be played anytime.

 

006

I was very excited by the play test of Age of Sigmar this weekend. Games Workshop has certainly captured most of whats enjoyable about Warhammer Fantasy in this streamlined new release. While I do miss the challenge of maneuvering large block units, I still get play with the best Fantasy Miniatures ever created in the most accessible format ever made. I applaud GW for making all the warscrolls instantly available.  We have printed them out if you’d like to take a look and will be forming an escalation league soon. Demos available on request!
