Night of the Living Card Games 2 (2/21/2015)

It's been a little while. A lot of cool things have happened around Snake eyes Gaming in the last month: Fate Reforged Prerelease, Magic PTQ, Knight Models Tournament, and tons of new exciting products!

I wanted to spend a little time today talking about the upcoming Living Card Game Day at Snake Eyes Gaming. Some of you may remember the last Living Card Game Day that we held back in October. For that event we ran demonstrations of a handful of our favorite Living Card Games. Since that time, we have had a Doomtown Tournament and a group of new players pick up Lord of the Rings. For this Living Card Game Day (which will be held on Saturday, February 21, 2015)  we are going to put the spotlight on two games: Doomtown and Call of Cthulu.

Doomtown is set in the Weird West. There are mad scientists, evil sorcerers, undead, holy-men wielding the power of the divine, outlaws, and of course lawmen. You take the role of the Sheriff Dave Montreal and the Law Dogs; the Morgan Cattle Company and their secret experiments conducted by mad scientists; the unseemly circus that just came to town and set up their tents near the old Whateley manor house, or the outlaw Sloane and her gang. Whoever you choose, your goal is to wrestle control of Gomorra away from your competitors.

Each store is permitted to hold two Deputy Events per year. Next Saturday (February 21, 2015) at 2pm will be the Deputy Event. Bring a legal Doomtown Reloaded deck (constructed following the deck building rules out of cards from the Base Set; New Town, New Rules; and Double Dealin') and fight for control of Gomorra. Only one player cane leave with the tin badge proclaiming them as Deputy.

Join us in exploring the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft with the Call of Cthulhu LCG Necronomicon draft.  Take the side of humanity battling against the outer gods, and elder ones.  Or take the side of they who should not be named, in the new draft format for the Living Card Game.

We will be teaching basics of the living card game as well as holding a draft tournament.  The Call of Cthulu draft will start next Saturday (February 21, 2015) at 6pm. The draft is played with each player using a draft starter and a draft pack.  You will have the draft starter as the core of your deck to use, & draft from the draft pack, like other card games, choosing a card and passing to the next player, using the drafted cards to then build a 40 card deck.
