This Week’s Game Spotlights for 9/27/19!

Published September 26th, 2019

Posted in: ,

There is a hidden realm outside the world of the waking: a realm of wonder, imagination, and nightmares. After occult author Virgil Gray writes about his adventures in these “Dreamlands,” you decide to set forth and learn the truth for yourself. What is real, and what is fiction? And what secrets await in the dark, forbidden places beyond the gates of sleep?

The Dream-Eaters is the fifth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. In this expansion, 1–2 players take on the roles of either a group of investigators venturing into the Dreamlands or their companions who have been left in the waking world. This expansion contains the first two scenarios of The Dream-Eaters cycle; one scenario for each of these two groups. This expansion also contains new investigator and player cards that increase the customization options for the game.

The galaxy is at war. The Galactic Civil War rages across the stars, nowhere more fiercely than the lawless Mid and Outer Rim. Newly promoted commanders lead their fleets to these systems, looking to make a name for themselves as they vie for resources, allies, and ever more control of the galaxy. As they grow in power, all suspect that a grand final battle is approaching in the Rim—one that will determine whether the growing Rebellion will be crushed under the fist of the Empire, or if the spark of hope will burn down the established power structure and allow a new age to begin.

Rebellion in the Rim is an epic campaign expansion for Star Wars: Armadathat takes two to six players to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, where they must fight for control of the territories and resources that may prove invaluable in the wars ahead. Using the innovative campaign mechanics first introduced in The Corellian Conflict, your team must choose to support the Galactic Empire or the Rebel Alliance over the course of multiple battles across the Rim. There, you might just earn enough campaign points to scatter the enemy forces and prove to your superiors that you are a credit to your faction, worthy of advancement and renown.

Join us this Saturday for the first annual THIRD EYE DAY!

SATURDAY 9/28/19
15% OFF EVERYTHING IN-STORE (excluding new releases from 9/23 – 9/29)
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!
