Sci-Fi City News - Week of Sept. 14th, 2008

And heeeere’s your weekly blogcast from Sci-Fi City, with your host, Sci-Fi City Troy!

Great to be here! We’re all recovering from ‘Ard Boyz 2008. It was a great tournament with some very talented gamers taking part. Our local ‘Ard Boyz who’ll be moving on the Semi-Finals are: Chris Humphries (Necron), Eric Wood (CSM), and Vincent Lookebill (Orks). Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to everyone who participated. Right ‘ard, th’ lot of ya! (And hey, did you see that last scenario? I’d love to hear the stories from anyone who managed to score better than a minor victory!)

We’re looking forward to next Saturday’s World Wide War, sponsored by 40K Radio. It’s being run like a standard 40K RTT, but player’s scores from Sci-Fi City will be compared with scores from around the world to determine the World Wide Champion! You have to sign-up online, and registration is $10. Don’t miss out on this battle – Sci-Fi City is the only store in Florida where you’ll find it!

Can’t wait for Saturday to get a little 40K action? Then Friday Night Fights is for you! This Friday we’re hosting the Dread Arena. Many will enter, one will leave… We’ll be starting the first fight around 6 p.m., and we’ll run as many as we can until closing! (Full Dread Arena rules can be found here.)

Finally, for anyone looking for a little change of pace (okay, a HUGE change of pace – but they’re making me tell…) every Thursday at Sci-Fi City is Boardgame Night. This Thursday we’re featuring Settlers of Catan! (If you’re not familiar with Settlers, it’s kind of like Warhammer Fantasy, without the armies, fighting, and no orcs. But it’s still fun!) Stop by and expand your gaming horizons by playing for free after 4 p.m. You might just find yourself facing a new kind of challenge! (Plus, enjoy a 20% discount on Settlers of Catan all day Thursday!)

And that’s about all the time we have for today. Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you at Sci-Fi City!

I can state for a fact that if you play Settlers:

1. You will never be more concerned with a lack of sheep.

2. You will have a great time.
