First up, we’d like to announce an innovative strategy with our staff schedules. Due to all the hard work we’ve put in to bring you all excellent service, our staff is in need of some down time. For three days this month (10/17, 10/18, and 10/19), we’ll be opening later in the day @5pm and close @11pm. The idea is to do this 2-3 times a year to give our staff more needed down time. Now to our events! This month, Unfinity launches on the 7th! You’ll be able to pick up preordered boxes at open! We’ll be hosting drafts on Friday the 7th @7pm, Sunday the 9th @Noon, and Wednesday the 12th @7pm for our Weekly Wednesday Draft.

If you bought your Warhammer 40k deck from us, you can compete against other players with unaltered Warhammer 40k decks in 3 rounds of 1v1 commanders games. Participants will receive another Fabricate promo (while supplies last) as well as one non foil promo pack from a previous set for each win.
