I posted a box opening video to Youtube. I figured as I open so many boxes of each new set for singles I might as well let people watch along! I hope you enjoy it, and subscribe to the channel if you want to see more.
The Magic the Gathering board game was released in the UK last week and I decided to pick up a copy as soon as it came in.
The new Duel Decks Anthology is out tomorrow (Friday 5th Dec). Containing eight separate decks, deck boxes and life counters in a presentation box for £80, it’s a bit of a bargain. We have a couple left after preorders so get in touch now if you want one.
New in the shop this week we have Enemy Coast Ahead: The Dambuster Raid from GMT. In Enemy Coast Ahead, you command a newly formed Lancaster squadron assigned the task of breaching the dams in the Ruhr Valley. Not only are you presented with a variety of decisions, you play the invisible hand of fate as your crews endure the hazards of a dangerous night raid. Play the campaign and you get to organize and train the squadron, or play the historical scenarios. It’s suitable for solitaire or team play and costs £43.99.
Also in this week we have the Magic Holiday Boxes from Wizards. You get Four Khans of Tarkir booster packs, a beautiful storage box that can hold more than 2,000 Magic cards, twenty Khans of Tarkir basic lands, six illustrated plastic dividers, a sticker sheet for customizing the dividers and an alternative-art Sultai Charm from the Khans of Tarkir set. All this for only £16.99!
We’ve also had a restock of Warhammer Conquest starters. This game has been incredibly popular and we got the last four copies from the distributor!
Boosters are £2.99 (RRP £3.59)
Booster boxes are £92 (RRP £129.24)
Full range of Gatecrash singles available athttp://bit.ly/gatecrashsingles
New in today – The Magic: the Gathering Holiday Gift Box! A storage box holding over 2000 cards. It comes with 4 Return to Ravnica boosters, 20 basic land, 6 full colour dividers and stickers and an alternate art foil Dreg Mangler. £16.99.
We’re now taking preorders for Return to Ravnica boxes and Fat packs. Boxes are £85 and Fat Packs £30.99.
Don’t forget unlike online only stores when you preorder a box from us you will receive the box topper promo card for
each box you buy, and you can get your boxes on the day of release, rather than waiting for them to be shipped.
We have an abundance of new and re-released games this week!

This Saturday, 7th July, sees The Games Store hosting a prerelease for the latest Magic Core Set, Magic 2013. It’s always exciting to use the new cards for the first time. Why not come along and see if you can be the best?
The event will be held at St Andrew’s Hall, in the basement of the United Reform Church on Garmston Street in Lincoln (http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/VenueDetails.aspx?venuecode=23812). It costs £22.50 + £2 club entry fee, and for that you will receive 6 boosters of Magic 2013, along with a promo card and at least one guaranteed booster prize. You’ll build your deck and play against your fellow competitors.
Whether you are an old Magic hand, or a first-timer, you’re sure to have a lot of fun!
