2020 – we’re leveling up Third Eye Games!
Third Eye Faithful, we’re always listening to you, and taking note of the things you want to see more of at Third Eye, and in 2020, over the course of the next few months, we’re going to be making a ton of exciting upgrades to Third Eye Games to bring you an even more awesome Third Eye experience!
Whether it’s taking our already killer game room, and adding new features and events to make it more exciting, expanding our current product lines, or bringing in new product lines — we’re going to be doing tons of cool stuff to Third Eye, and we’re doing it because we appreciate all the support you’ve shown us since we opened the doors of Third Eye Games in 2015!
Make sure you follow us on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram to keep in the loop about new stuff coming to Third Eye, culminating in a big crazy roll-out of some of most ambitious additions to the store yet on the 1st ever THIRD EYE GAMES DAY on 6/6/20 (more info on THAT coming soon!)
This Saturday is a celebration of all things Games Workshop BLACK LIBRARY, and there’s a special box set coming out to help celebrate with TALONS OF THE EMPEROR: VALERIAN AND ALEYA!
Third Eye Faithful: by now you know us – we’re all about some Warhammer, and we especially love the lore of Warhammer, so when we saw that our pals over at Games Workshop would be putting out a couple of models to help celebrate their BLACK LIBRARY line of novels (which we carry here at Third Eye!), we knew we had to shout it out!
Valerian and Aleya, the stars of Chris Wraight’s Watchers of the Throne series, have been realised as stunning new miniatures for the Black Library Celebration on Saturday. Not only that, but they’re getting exclusive Warhammer 40,000 rules, too. That being the case, we thought we’d treat you to a sneak peek at what they’re like in the game…
As a Shield-Captain of the Adeptus Custodes, Valerian is a mighty warrior, and a match for many of the most powerful heroes in the Imperium. His profile is enough to make his enemies weep!
Valerian is never parted from his masterwork guardian spear, Gnosis, which strikes even harder than other weapons of its kind for a whopping total of Strength 7 in melee! Send him into the thick of the fighting alongside a unit or two of his fellow Custodians and they’ll reliably slaughter everything in their path.
A veteran warrior of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica, Tanau Aleya is an incredibly formidable swordswoman and has the honour of being the first Character hailing from the Silent Sisterhood in Warhammer 40,000!
As a Sister of Silence, Aleya’s mere presence is anathema to enemy psykers, and this effect is amplified further when in the company of her fellow Null-Maidens. If you’re facing a powerful psychic threat, supplement Aleya with a few squads to shut down your opponent’s Psychic phase.
Supplies are limited on these, so hit us up to pre-order yours for pick-up tomorrow, or get here early to snag yours!
TOMORROW is our big DUNE DEMO DAY event featuring publishers GALE FORCE NINE (FIREFLY: THE BOARD GAME, Dungeons & Dragons SPELL CARDS and more)! Come play one of our favorite new games with the folks who publisher it!
We are SO pumped for this event, Third Eye Faithful! We’re bringing in friends of Third Eye, Gale Force 9, the publishers behind Third Eye faves like the D&D Spell Card decks, FIREFLY THE BOARD GAME, and more, to demo one of their hottest new games — DUNE!
Imagine the old Avalon Hill game DIPLOMACY — but with Sandworms!
The Spice Must Flow – DUNE – a game of conquest, diplomacy & betrayal.
In DUNE you will become the leader of one of the six great factions. Each wishes to control the most valuable resource in the universe – melange, the mysterious spice only found at great cost on the planet DUNE.
As Duke Leto Atredes says “All fades before melange.
A handful of spice will buy you a home on Tupile. It cannot be manufactured, it must be mined on Arrakis.
It is unique and it has true geriatric properties.” And without melange space travel would be impossible.
Only by ingesting the addictive drug can the Guild Steersman continue to experience visions of the future, enabling them to plot a safe path through hyperspace.

STELLAR delivers a super-fun 2-player game for fans of the cosmos!
Space! For millennia, humans have marveled at the cosmos. Modern astronomy gives us valuable insight about what’s happening in the universe, but there is still a sense of wonder to be had in looking up at the expanse above us.
In Stellar, you are stargazers, calibrating your telescopes to bring into view celestial objects of various types – planets, moons, asteroids, interstellar clouds, black holes, even satellites – as you create a beautiful display of the night sky!
Our 1st KILL TEAM Tournament of 2020 is next week! Register now!
Third Eye Faithful, you know us: we’re all huge KILL TEAM fans at Third Eye, and one of our New Years Resolutions is to bring more awesome war-gaming events your way, and we couldn’t think of a better way to start than this epic KILL TEAM ARENA tournament on 3/7/20!
Magic: the Gathering UNSANCTIONED delivers a must-play new spin on MTG!
Choose two wacky silver-bordered 30-card decks, shuffle them together, and watch the mayhem unfold!
Unsanctioned is a ready-to-play “Un-set” experience.
Inside, you’ll find five 30-card, mono-colored decks, each designed to synergize with one another in unique and surprising ways. Each player combines two decks into one 60-card deck and faces off for some wacky gameplay that stretches the limits of what Magic cards can do.
