New Packs & Cool Tournaments This Weekend!

Hey Folks,

I have to say, I’m really impressed with last week’s attendance numbers! The store was filled to the brim with enthusiastic card flippers as the dual format Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournaments unfolded last week. And from what I’ve heard from the participants, a good time was had by all, so my hat goes off to you guys.

Now for this week:

Friday:

6:00pm - Friday Night Magic FNM. Players spend Friday evening bashing each other senseless with their top standard concoctions. Play for the new Oblivion Ring FNM promo cards! Format standard constructed T2, entry $6.

Saturday:

4:30pm – Yu-Gi-Oh! Advanced Constructed Tournament. Test your deck ideas in a fun and friendly environment, compete with the latest tech, or some combination of the both. Entry $7, prizes based on participation.

7:00pm – MTG Draft Night @ Fun Express features the M10M10Zen draft format this Saturday! I’m really excited about this one guys, be here! $12.

As far as product updates go, we have lots of new releases for you all! Garruk vs. Liliana Duel Decks, long awaited MTG M10 Boosters, Yu-Gi-Oh! Hidden Arsenal Booster Packs, Yu-Gi-Oh! Tins, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Warrior’s Strike Decks.

It should be another great time here at the shop this weekend, so come on over to Fun Express and play some cards!

Thanks for reading, see you at the Pass’.

eNews! - Yu-Gi-Oh!, Seafood Festival, and Magic Charades???

E-mail Print PDF

Seafood Festival On A Vampire Weekend!

Hi Folks,

Thanks goes out to the participants of last week’s events, a great time was had by all in both the Yu-Gi-Oh! and MTG events.

Now for this week.

Besides the always enjoyable events this week at the shop, the annual John’s Pass Seafood Festival is going on this weekend, and that brings up two important points.

#1 – Plan for parking/drop off traffic. It will be busy.
#2 – Invite some family out and make it a day. There’s plenty to do at the festival every year, so you can easily sling cards while others enjoy the surroundings which include dining, shopping, and of course that beautiful beach across the street. We’ve got great weather for it this weekend, so come on out!

To the events…

Saturday:

4:30pm - Yu-Gi-Oh! Advanced @ Fun Express! $7 advanced format event, swiss style. Prizes based on participation.

7:00pm – MTG draft night hosts the last 3x Zendikar draft for a little while, as next week we’re switching to split pack format. Entry $12, all participants receive three packs to draft with. BONUS: Magic Charades after the draft, gotta love it.

New product updates include Yu-Gi-Oh! Ancient Prophecy Special Edition packs. Next week, New Warrior Structure Decks arrive.

Guys it’s never too early to be thinking about the new Stardust Overdrive Release, and whenever there’s a new Yu-Gi-Oh! Release, there’s also a Sneak Peek Event!

That’s right, the new Stardust Overdrive Sneak Peek is coming up on  
10/31 (Halloween Day)! Starting at 12pm, you’re assured all kinds of fantastic Yu-Gi-Oh! goodness before you head out for a night filled with the macabre. I’ll post more on this later, but seriously guys next week!

That’s all I have for this time, I’ll be downstairs rockin the sales at the festival, so stop by and say hey.

See you at the Pass’
Colin
