Friday, June 21st @ 6:00 p.m. is the date and time of our next Weiss Schwarz Neo-Standard Tournament — “Cool Desert Weiss!” This will be the 3rd tournament we’ve held at STG, and we couldn’t be any more excited!
The tournament will be almost identical to our super successful WS tournament last month, which 22 people participated in! – there will be a $5 buy in, and decks will need to be constructed ala the Neo-Standard format.
For a list of banned and restricted cards, please refer to the HeartoftheCards.com list here:
Drinks and home made snacks will be provided, as per usual, and more details will pop up as we get closer to the event itself.
Feel free to join our event page on Facebook, here!
Also — to recap our tournament last month on May 18th:
1st – Andrew “King” Kong – Commanding a very efficient Haruhi deck for the big W. 2nd – Sean “Sean-Sean-SEAAAN!” McIntyre – Rockin’ 8 Level 3′s in a Persona deck. Pretty nuts! 3rd – The Mysterious Memo – Kicking you while you’re down with Madoka. 4th – Quintin “Butterscotch” Pettichord – With his magical “All Madoka Everything” deck.
Great work, and thanks to everybody who participated!
Join us on Saturday, June 22nd at 4:30 p.m. for our 3rd annual COOL DESERT FIGHTS! A gaming tournament for the ages! This year’s tournament focuses on the following 3 games: Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (XBOX 360), Injustice: Gods Among Us (PS3), and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Ultimate (XBOX 360).
Plus we’re happy to announce (in the spirit of summer) a bonus mini-tournament — our first ever MLB The Show 2013 Home Run Derby!
As always food and drinks will be provided for those participating in the tournaments.
Entry fees for the fighting games are $5 per game – all of which goes towards the prize pools. The home run derby has a $2 entry fee, which also goes towards prizes.
Participants are allowed to bring their own controllers/fight sticks, as long as all turbo and programming functions on the controller are deactivated.
If you have any questions feel free to ask us in the comments, or in store!
This Saturday is Sunken Treasures Games’ first ever Magic the Gathering Games Day! We’ll be hosting a Standard Tournament from 6:00 p.m. until whenever it ends. Promos and prizes will be provided and there will be a $5 entry fee for additional prize stuffs!
I can’t believe we’re already half way through May! Tomorrow is the Richland Uptown’s second annual “Dog Walk”, and also our store’s 2nd ever Weiss Schwarz tournament. It makes me think about that famous painting of the dogs playing poker. I should totally photoshop that with some Weiss cards. xD
For this edition of “This Just In!” we feature a wide variety of new merchandise recently stocked at the store including our first ever 3DO systems! Let’s start with that, shall we?
During our store anniversary party last Saturday, a customer sold us our first ever 3DO systems and games – we acquired both the FZ-1 and FZ-10 model (the latter of which is boxed!). Escape from Monster Manor is AMAZING.
The Fortress up by the register is fully stocked with a variety of amazing Nendoroids and Figma’s from animes like Evangelion to movies like Ironman!
Our first ever papercraft kits are available featuring each main character from the wonderful series K-ON!
EYE OF JUDGMENT CARDS!? Yes. If you’re one of the 5 people who actually had the chance (and appropriate lighting) to play this game, you’ll be happy to see that we now have some in stock.
A rare second wave of Dragon’s Maze Fat Packs. Usually we’re limited to what we initially get during launch. ^_^
Sarah was (understandably) stoked about these Series 1 and Series 2 “My Little Pony” trading cards. We have full boxes available as well for those interested.
The aforementioned Iron Man Nendoroid! Chibi Tony Stark is adorable, and you could technically use this figure with other Nendoroid head pieces. Oh the possibilities!
We’ve recently re-stocked a large selection of used NES games, so be sure to check out the Monster next time you’re in!
I think we’ve tripled our anime over the last 2 months. We have so much that we’re going to have to buy yet another shelf! Nearly over 1000 titles to choose from.
Well anywho, that’s all for “This Just In!”. Until next time, stay tuned to STG.com for details about events revolving around next month’s Cool Desert Nights. Adios for now!
It’s that time of the year again – 2 years and we’re still going strong! Here’s how the store is looking nowadays, set to some fine music by Hideki Naganuma.
Some of our favorites make guest appearances in this year’s video including: SARAHBOT-9000, Tomb Raider trading cards, a Commodore 64, Bomberman Online, Arino from Game Center CX, our giant Idolm@ster cloth poster (gifted to us by a pair of high school students in Japan), and the Press Pause Radio crew!
Thanks to everyone who’s helped make the store a success over the last 2 years! ^_^
And don’t forget, this Saturday (the 11th) is our big 2 year anniversary celebration. For more details clicky here!
On Saturday, May 18th, Sunken Treasures Games will be hosting a Neo-Standard tournament for Weiss Schwarz — the “Weiss Schwarz Spring Taisen!” This is our second ever Weiss Schwarz tournament, and since we have a solid WS community here now, you can expect several tournaments to pop up over the next few months. ^_^
There will be a $5 buy in, 100% of which will go towards the prize pool. We’ll be starting at 4:30 p.m., and will go until we’re finished! As per usual, snacks and drinks will be provided.
For a list of banned and restricted cards, please refer to the HeartoftheCards.com list here.
Next month on May 9th is Sunken Treasures Games’ two year anniversary! Looking back on pictures from the night before we opened conjures up a variety of emotions — for starters, we weren’t sure if anybody other than our amazing friends and family would show up! Also, we didn’t (and to some degree, still don’t) know what we were doing/getting into.
Well here we are 2 years later, and the store’s seen some significant growth. We have well over 10x the amount of merchandise we had on day one, and we have some awesome weekly events that, at times, we barely have room for! xD
In celebration of our 2 year anniversary S.T.G. will be hosting it’s first ever “Games Day” at the store on Saturday, May 11th. It’s not often enough that we get to celebrate the thing we love: video games.
We’ll have multiplayer games setup all day — four player Halo 4 on the big screen in the back, a 4 player Dreamcastathon featuring Power Stone 2, ChuChu Rocket, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and a late night Weiss Schwarz night to top things off. All the while we’ll be providing food, drinks, and some homemade SARAHBOT-9000 treats free of charge, as a thank you for 2 years of incredible support!
Today, Tuesday April 16th, we’ll be opening signups for our Magic the Gathering “Dragon’s Maze” Pre-Release tournament. Deck building will commence at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27th! Try to be here a little early if possible, so we can get things all organizzled.
Just like last time there will be a limited 24 slots available, and as per your requests, the entry fee has been bumped up to $35 dollars to accommodate for full catering (sandwiches, wings, and salad!) and free drinks ALL NIGHT!
If you’re interested in signing up, but can’t make it to the store just let us know via a phone call, e-mail, or Facebook, and we’ll make sure to get you on the list!
Hey there peoples! Tonight is part 2 in our series of anime movie nights, and while we had a few hiccups last night (DAMN YOU DOLBY 5.1 TRUEHD!) it ended up being a lot of fun. Thanks to those who attended!
Here are the trailers for tonight’s features — again, if you wish to partake in tonight’s event you need to be at least 17 years old, or have your parent’s permission. The trailers below feature some violent and graphic images. You’ve been warned!
Rebuild of Evangelion 1.11
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Episode 01, and Episode 02
(Couldn’t find one with subs, but at least this is good quality!)
Fate Stay/Night – Episode 01
Festivities start at 6:00 p.m. — as with last night, food and drinks will be provided! OH! And if you play Weiss Schwarz, be sure to bring your decks for the after party. Hope to see you here!
