Villainous Movie Poster Art Contest!

MovieTieInMonthContestmovie poster montage2

EDIT: The poster went out with a typo, the submission date is MARCH 31st, not May. Sorry, guys!

By now, the DC movie poster comic book covers have debuted. They are really amazing, and it’s fun to see a new twist on an old favourite.

But beyond DC, we would like to see where you would cast other characters in famous movie roles.

The concept is simple, re-create a classic movie poster starring your favourite comic book characters! They can be from any comic label, except DC. They’ve had their fun.

Machi Koro Tournament at the Villainous Lair!


Join us for a Machi Koro tournament, sponsored by IDW Games! The tournament will start on March 7th, Saturday at 11am and go thru rounds, depending on size of turn out. We will also have Nate Murray of IDW on hand to play thru IDW’s newest game, Diamonsters. Prizes will be awarded and giveaways will be had! Come on down, it’s only $5!

Welcome to the city of Machi Koro. You’ve just been elected Mayor. Congrats! Unfortunately the citizens have some pretty big demands: jobs, a theme park, a couple of cheese factories and maybe even a radio tower. A tough proposition since the city currently consists of a wheat field, a bakery and a single die.

Armed only with your trusty die and a dream, you must grow Machi Koro into the largest city in the region. You will need to collect income from developments, build public works, and steal from your neighbors’ coffers. Just make sure they aren’t doing the same to you!

Machi Koro is a fast-paced game for 2-4 players. Each player wants to develop the city on his own terms in order to complete all of the landmarks under construction faster than his rivals. On his turn, each player rolls one or two dice. If the sum of the dice rolled matches the number of a building that a player owns, he gets the effect of that building; in some cases opponents will also benefit from your die (just as you can benefit from theirs). Then, with money in hand a player can build a landmark or a new building, ideally adding to the wealth of his city on future turns. The first player to construct all of his landmarks wins!

Magic: The Gathering Fate Reforged Info

Fate Reforged title

That time of year is upon us….no sooner are we getting used to 2015, but the world of Tarkir will be shaken.

Sarkhan Vol travels 1,280 years back in time, to change the moment that sealed Tarkir’s fate: the battle between Nicol Bolas and Ugin, the demise of the latter and all dragons of Tarkir. The clans still exist back in the time; they are not fighting each other but are constantly fending off the legion hordes of dragons that are terrorizing their world. Sarkhan meets khans of the past, like Yasova Dragonclaw. The history of Tarkir is rewritten.
