It’s the beginning of summer (officially). This means people have more free time to get some gaming in. We’ve now got you covered if you want to get out and exercise, with disc golf, or if you want to get your competitive juices going in the air conditioning, to beat the heat.
There’s a good chance many of you are behind on some of the new games. There are also many games that the locals have caught wind of that have many new fans over recent months. We’d like to recommend Flash Point: Fire Rescue, Kingdom Builder, Ascension, King of Tokyo, and Smash Up. All of these are great board games that just recently started to catch on. They are totally worth the investment and you’re sure to find players to game with.
Also, as a reminder, we’ve had a steady group showing up on Sundays for our free board game days. It’s a great chance to try out a new game or just show up with one of your favorites and have people to play with.
We’ll be starting another Warmachine/Hordes league in July. This will give our miniatures players something to do through the back end of the summer.
Our Month One Fear Itself event for Heroclix is on Saturday June 15th.
We’ve got a Magic the Gathering Pro Tour Qualifier coming up on July 6th. And the Magic 2014 Prerelease will be the following weekend.
Cardfight Vanguard Clash of Knights and Dragon Sneek Preview event is coming up on June 22nd.
We’ve just started another group on our Wednesday night D&D games for those of you looking to come play.
And we’ve even expanded our Disc Golf section again.
So much stuff going on this summer. The calendar is going to be getting stuff added regularly as they pop up, so check it often!
We’ve got a whole slate of things happening. We just wanted to remind everyone about the larger ones:
Heroclix No Man’s Land events #4 (4/13/13) and #5 (4/27/13).
Magic the Gathering Dragon’s Maze Prerelease 4/26/13 – 4/28/13. And yes, this will include a midnight release again. And there’s a TCGPlayer.com Bronze Event on 4/20.
Disc Golf Beginner Event on May 4th. This is a great intro level event for only beginners and inexperienced players.
We’re also demo’ing board games every Sunday, have Warmachine/Hordes players in on Friday nights, and we’re seeing more Warhammer 40K players each Saturday.
Let’s start with the biggest news:

We’ll have new Privateer Press (Warmachine/Hordes) Journaman League starting up January 8th. Entry fee for the full season is only $10. Details will be posted on our event calendar.
We’ve recently done some rearranging. We’re going to be expanding our board game line. We’ve already added a section and moved a few things. More games should be getting restocked over the next two weeks.
The local disc golf players have been looking for a larger variety of discs. Well, The Game Closet is looking to take care of the problem. We’ve got more discs arriving this Friday (shipping permitting). We also have a few more bags, straps, score cards, and towels arriving.
We’ve outfitted the store with tablecloths for our gaming tables. We’re going to have a bigger focus on board game demos. We’re also going to be trying to host a larger variety of roleplaying games in the store weekly.
With the new year comes new, big changes
