This Week’s Games Spotlights for 7/12/19!

Published July 9th, 2019

Posted in: , , ,

We know you’ve gotten the bug thanks to our big pre-release weekend last week, but the official release of Core Set 2020 is this Friday!!

This brand new set is packed full of exciting new cards, powerful reprints, and some serious fan-favorites that you’re going to want to get your hands on!

There’s never a bad time to jump into some Magic goodness, and starting with a brand new set is definitely the way to go! We’ve still got a couple awesome events for Core Set 2020 up our sleeves! Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for all the fun!

Warhammer fans, this one is for you! We know that you guys have been loving Blackstone Fortress since it’s release a few months ago, and now there’s some brand new elements to add to the Blackstone Fortress!

A perfect expansion set for fans of Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, this pack provides you with two new hostiles in the form of a Chaos Ogryn and Traitor Commissar (even the infamously stoic Commissars are not entirely immune to the lures of Chaos!), and an exciting new quest for your explorers to undertake. Can your adventurous team of ne’er-do-wells halt a fell ritual that is taking place deep within the Blackstone Fortress before it is completed?

The set includes:

– 1 Traitor Commissar
– 1 Chaos Ogryn
– 16-page Traitor Command booklet
– 1 Heart of Corruption sheet (yes, it’s as creepy as it sounds)
– 1 punchboard sheet of card tokens
– 18 discovery cards
– 12 exploration cards
– 2 encounter cards
– 2 hostile reference cards
– 5 soul price cards (again, bad times)
– 1 Heart of Corruption envelope (within which lies your secret reward for completing the quest)
– 1 assembly guide (to aid you in building the miniatures included in the set)


Celebrate the big release of Core Set 2020 with our Turbo Draft on 7/13!!

Our Pokemon Juniors League continues every Sunday!!

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!

Sundays will have a new earlier start time of 11:30am-1:30pm! We have taken notice that sometimes Pokemon has had to share the space with some of our other event offerings. WE adjusted the time so that Pokemon Juniors can have the space it needs without worrying about what else is scheduled for that day.

We know that you’re all major DICE MASTERS fans, and we’ve decided to begin hosting a weekly Monday night DICE MASTERS event for you!

REMEMBER: Our Constructed games follow Dice Masters Tournament rules. Each player selects a maximum of eight Characters or Action Cards, and 20 corresponding dice. They also select two Basic Action Cards. Constructed games are played at 20 life. Rounds last 30 minutes and then are judged based on life totals.A player may not bring two characters with the same name, even if they have different subtitles (i.e. Wolverine: Wanted, and Wolverine: Canucklehead).

NEVER PLAYED? No worries! Andrew Miller will be running the event and can teach you everything you need to know to get started. Plus, many of our top players started not too long ago and love introducing new players to the game!

WHAT IS DICE MASTERS? Basically, it’s like a trading card game, but with dice! In Dice Masters, two players take the role of masterminds directing the actions of a team of powerful supers (represented by dice) to battle each other! Each turn, you’ll roll your dice to see what resources you have available, buy dice, send your team members into the field, and then strike at the enemy mastermind. Reduce the opposing mastermind’s life to zero, and save the day!

Dicemasters is a dice-building game (similar to deck-building card games) where players collect and assemble their team of character dice and battle in head-to-head gameplay.

Hey Third Eye Faithful!

First off: we wanna say a huge thanks to our role-playing community — you are so enthusiastic, and passionate about your favorite adventures, that you’ve really turned our game room into a hub for all things tabletop role-playing!

With the crazy popularity of role-playing at Third Eye, and due to requests from many of you, we’ve officially decided to make Tuesday nights (which have been the ‘unofficial RPG night’ since the days of Third Eye Ben running ARENA) our official Tuesday Night RPG night!

For just $5, you can take a seat at a table with all your pals, and use the game room to help make your adventures become reality, and not be confined to any one game system in the process.

Please note: Third Eye does not run or host any of the actual RPGs, we just provide the space for you to use for your game!We love our role-playing community, and with the crazy large turnouts of attendees, this helps us continue to provide our space for so many different role-playing communities!
