This Week’s Game Spotlights for 9/20/19!

FORGE YOUR FATE IN HELLFIRE!

Diabolical dangers await in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

Welcome to Baldur’s Gate, a city of ambition and corruption. You’ve just started your adventuring career, but already find yourself embroiled in a plot that sprawls from the shadows of Baldur’s Gate to the front lines of the planes-spanning Blood War! Do you have what it takes to turn infernal war machines and nefarious contracts against the archdevil Zariel and her diabolical hordes? And can you ever hope to find your way home safely when pitted against the infinite evils of the Nine Hells?

  • This heroic Dungeons & Dragons adventure book takes players from levels 1 to 13 as they journey through Baldur’s Gate and into Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells.
  • Baldur’s Gate is among the most iconic locations in fantasy culture. A mist-cloaked metropolis on the Sword Coast, it’s a place of history and a home to heroes.
  • The book introduces the infernal war machines to fifth edition D&D—battle-ready vehicles, which you can customize as you blast off into the Blood War.
  • Dungeon Masters will entice their heroes with devils’ deals, designed to lure adventurers with the ultimate temptations of power and treasure.

INFERNAL FORTUNE FINDS FORM!

Premium dice for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

From the streets of Baldur’s Gate to the front lines of the Blood War, the dice you cast might be your last.

Includes:

  • Eleven dice (two d20s, one d12, two d10s, one d8, four d6s, one d4).
  • A durable, lined dice tray, which also works as part of a two-piece dice box.
  • Twenty double-sided cards with encounter tables and story content for the devils and demons of the Blood War, featuring exclusive art from Max Dunbar.
  • Exclusive content card for Strange Encounters and Trinkets One Finds in Avernus.

Every Sunday is our Pokemon Juniors League!!

Alright aspiring Pokemon Masters, Third Eye has an amazing Pokemon Juniors League!! We want to take the time to say thank you to everyone that has been a part of this community and we are excited to announce some awesome changes coming!!

First off, we want to welcome Mike and Jeaneane Stefan! Two volunteer Pokemon Masters from our very own Thursday Night League! Juniors has grown week after week, and we want to continue to offer an amazing experience for everyone, so we are bringing in the calvary! Mike and Jeanane have been playing for over 3 years and are excited to share all they have learned with the aspiring trainers!

Now, birthdays are kind of a yearly thing — and, with the end of September also being when convention season for the East Coast tends to kick off, it can be hard finding that extra time to celebrate.

So, what’d we do? Well, we’ve created a brand new annual tradition at Third Eye to celebrate one of our fearless leaders, and all that she does for Third Eye!

And, then, just as importantly, Third Eye Day is our way of celebrating the community and family that each and every one of you bring by being a part of our store.

Whether you’ve been with us since the first Third Eye opened, or if you just found us, it’s because of you and your loyal support of Third Eye that helps make it so we can bring you the best darn comic book store … in the world!

With that being said, we’d be honored if you could dedicate the last Saturday in September to coming out, celebrating Third Eye Trish’s birthday, and helping us kick off what is sure to be one of our favorite events to run yet!

Finally, Third Eye Day is also a celebration of our entire staff as a whole, and all the heart and soul they put into Third Eye. You all know as well as we do that Team Third Eye is unlike any other comic shop team you’ve ever seen — and their dedication to getting you the good stuff and putting a smile on your face is second to none!

What’s Third Eye Day? Third Eye Day is a celebration of all the things that we feel make Third Eye great — whether it’s you, Third Eye Faithful, whether it’s our incredible staff, or whether it’s the founders of Third Eye themselves, Steve & Trish — this is a day to wave your Third Eye flag, and show the world why you love Third Eye!

What’d we have going on for Third Eye Day?
15% OFF EVERYTHING! First off, we’re doing something we rarely do — an entire, store-wide sale, that is quite literally: 15% off EVERYTHING!

That’s right — whether it’s a single issue of Amazing Spider-Man, a giant statue, your favorite board game, or a sealed box of Magic the Gathering cards — it’s 15% off EVERYTHING!

The only restrictions we have is that new releases from the week of 9/25/19 do not count, and new Games Workshop & Magic the Gathering releases from the week of 9/23 – 9/29 do not count.

Otherwise: GO CRAZY!

What else? The first ever THIRD EYE TREASURE HUNT! Visit ALL Four Third Eye Locations — and redeem your Treasure Map for a very special surprise Third Eye Gift!

The 1st ever Third Eye Treasure Hunt goes down on Third Eye Day, and Third Eye Faithful, if you’re bold enough to travel far and wide to hit all of our locations — we’ve got something special for you!

How does it work? OK, so check this out:
