Sign-up is open now, pre-payment not required.
We are very pleased to be announcing the following new events happening at The Dragon:
1. Star Wars X-Wing Minis are here! Responding to the huge demand from customers, we have decided to start running league play in the store on 2 Saturdays a month, from 2:30-6:30pm. The first one will be Saturday, January 25th. There will be several weeks of league play, with the winners (based on points) receiving cool exclusive prizes. More details to follow.
2. Netrunner has been added to the calendar on the same Saturdays as X-Wing from 10-2, beginning Saturday, January 25th. As with X-Wing, there will be league play with exclusive prizes.
3. We will be having Championship Tournaments for both X-Wing and Netrunner in March!
4. Once a month on Saturday will be a Warhammer 40k Day, on which we will have special events or tournaments. The first one of these would ordinarily be February 1st, but as that is our Magic Pre-Release, we may have to postpone. Details to follow.
5. Store Wars! Check out www.facebook.com/storewars.ca for all the details about this tournament circuit. The short version is that The Dragon has joined 4 other stores for a Warmachine tournament circuit, culminating in a Grand Tournament in May/June. There will be a Major and a Minor tournament at each store involved, where players can earn points based on their standings. At the end of the season, the players with the highest points totals will be admitted to the Grand Tournament with a chance to win amazing prizes! Our Major tournament will be on February 22nd, with our Minor tournament to follow in March.
We hope you are as excited as we are about all these new events!
As usual, Magic remains on Thursdays (casual) and Fridays (FNM) with alternating Sundays; Board Games are the 2nd Sunday of every month; Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh are on Wednesdays from 3-6pm; HeroClix is on alternating Sundays.
See you soon!
