Sci-Fi City News - October 8th, 2008

Greetings monster fans! SciFiCity-Troy here with your latest and greatest Sci-Fi City News Update!

Last Sunday we had a great turnout for the Warhammer Fantasy Warbands League kick-off. Sixteen players played a combined total of 22 games! And it's not too late to join in! Besides the overall league Champion, we will also be offering a prize for the Best General (best average score out of all who have played at least 12 games), and certificates for each week's winner and runner up! So get together a 300-point warband and bring it this Sunday to get in on the Week Two action!

For you Warmachine fans out there, we are going to make last Saturday's Warmachine tournament a regular event. From now on, the first Saturday of each month will see a Warmachine Tournament, GUARANTEED! So mark your calendars now, and make sure your army is up to date – you get DOUBLE Rewards Card points on all Privateer Press products in October at Sci-Fi City.

ONLY two days until Monsterpocalypse! The monsters hit the streets on Friday, October 10th, and Sci-Fi City will have them all – and did I mention the double Rewards Card points for Privateer Press products? (Guess who makes Monsterpocalypse…) We're delaying our release party for a week (thanks to the 'Ard Boyz semi-finals on the 11th) – which means you'll have a whole week to get your faction started and get all your extras ready for the trading action. At the Monsterpocalypse Party (October 18th) we'll be hosting several tournaments, helping you with trading, AND we'll be ready to play (or teach you to play!) all day long! (The entire SFC staff plans on getting into this one in a BIG way…)

Board Game Nights at Sci-Fi City have been doing great! Last Thursday we had a close call as six intrepid investigators barely held off Azathoth in Arkham Horror. (Thanks guys! BTW – rumor has it another elder one is stirring in its slumber and we may once again be calling on you to save the world in November…)

Speaking of saving the world, get ready for an attack of the Zombies!!! This terrifying Thursday, 4-9 pm, you can play this great game for free! We'll gladly teach you if you haven't played before, and you'll enjoy a 20% discount on Zombies!!! all day long!

(And – sneak peek - next Thursday: Monsterpocalypse is our game of the week..!)

And finally: Friday Night Fights continues! This week – Fantasy Champions Arena! Bring your WHFB Hero (no more than 150 pts) for a free-for-all battle in Sci-Fi City's Arena o' Death! The fight to the death begins around 6 p.m. – if you think you're tough enough…

Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Check out our new website for a complete listing of all our upcoming events. Thanks for reading, and hope to see you at Sci-Fi City, soon!

SciFiCity-Troy, signing off.
