Saturday, April 15th, 10AM – 530PM stop by our little shop and learn how to play some Magic The Gathering, if you don’t know already how.
What is this Open House we speak of? Well, gentle reader, it’s a new Pre-Pre-Release event to get hungry hobbyists into the world of the Planeswalker. It’s a great event for getting your feet wet and getting free cards. Heck, test your newly acquired skills at the casual Standard event starting at 230pm.
Here is Wizards official blurb:
“Set to occur the Saturday before Amonkhet Prerelease, this new event encourages casual fun for new players and easy, league-style Standard play with a participation promo reward.
On Saturday, April 15, invite players of all levels to come together to learn and play Magic, say farewell to Aether Revolt, and look ahead to the next exciting release—Amonkhet.”
We will have starter decks on hand for anyone looking to give it a try and anyone who wants to play, can with a Hobby Habit player.
There are promo land cards for participating and don’t miss out on the CASUAL STANDARD EVENT/230PM. $FREE$
And now, a word from the publisher:
“The forces of evil are threatening to overrun Hogwarts castle in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, a cooperative deck-building game, and it’s up to four students to ensure the safety of the school by defeating villains and consolidating their defenses. In the game, players take on the role of a Hogwarts student: Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville, each with their own personal deck of cards that’s used to acquire resources.
By gaining influence, players add more cards to their deck in the form of iconic characters, spells, and magical items. Other cards allow them to regain health or fight against villains, keeping them from gaining power. The villains set back players with their attacks and Dark Arts. Only by working together will players be able to defeat all of the villains, securing the castle from the forces of evil.”
If that isn’t going to get you excited from your Broomstick all the way up to your Sorting Hat, I don’t know what will. The publisher’s are not wrong when describing this game; it is a great cooperative game paired with growing difficulties as you move through the seven different games with each adding more cards, villains and locations that just add great replay-ability.
Having played this game on a couple of occasions, I can personally attest that I look forward to each time we get to play it again. We’ve had it and played it and have yet to get to game 4. It’s so much fun.
Each character is worth playing, from Neville’s healing abilities to Ron’s fighting bonuses, Harry is a good all around player, and Hermione’s time turner is always there to help get cards as well as being one tough wizard. If you have a great love of the books and have always envisioned yourself duking it out with He-who-must-not-be-named, then come down to Hobby Habit and pick your copy up today for $49.95.
