Our weekly customizable card game night, the Tuesday Night Gathering, has been going strong for well over a year now, but it’s time for a few changes and we want your feedback! Typically we average about 20 people each week, and while we know space is pretty tight, we really appreciate everyone making due. The majority of folks who show up are Magic the Gathering players, but we’ve also had a fair share of Weiss Schwarz and Cardfight!! Vanguard players too.
Well, starting next Tuesday it’s going to be Magic the Gathering only, folks! And with that we’ll be hosting an entirely new card game night, WeissFight!! Wednesdays
With this (sweeping?) change to Tuesday nights, we’re also going to start hosting bi-weekly themed booster drafts that we’ll be Frankensteining in our spare time. Type 2 booster drafts, block specific booster drafts with Chaos modifiers, retro booster drafts with Planechase… yeah – it should be crazy fun. The booster drafts will likely be limited as far as the number of participants due to the lack of space, but I imagine we’ll be good for at least 20 or so people.
On weeks when we’re not doing booster drafts it’ll be the same casual magic experience you’ve come to expect from S.T.G., so if drafts aren’t your thing, no worries! And just because we’ll be doing booster drafts doesn’t mean you can’t come down and play casual Magic as well. Just understand that there’s going to be a few less people to play with while the draft is going on. ^_^
We’ll be posting a schedule of planned drafts in the near future so be on the lookout.
This brings us to WeissFight!! Wednesdays! Every Wednesday starting at 6 p.m. we’ll be hosting this exciting new event where we’ll be playing and teaching people how to play two very unique Japanese card games, Weiss Schwarz and Cardfight!! Vanguard. If you’ve ever been curious about either game, this is your chance to come down and see what it’s all about. Weiss Schwarz in particular is a favorite of mine — the idea of combining characters from so many different anime and video games into one card game is so very excellent. Having Eva Unit 01 battling an idol from Idolmaster… PERFECT.
So where does that leave us? Oh, another announcement of course!
For both of these events Sunken Treasures Games will be partnering up with the Uptown Restaurant to provide attendees with special deals on delicious food. If you haven’t eaten yet and you’re heading to S.T.G. for a card night, keep this mind. We’ll have menus on hand and will call in your order anytime between 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.~! The Uptown Restaurant has some pretty amazing food, from salads and sandwiches, to burgers and paninis. Be sure to ask an associate for a menu next time you’re in.
All of this excitement begins next week (Tuesday the 26th) with our first booster draft taking place on the 3rd of July!
And that’s that. Let us know what you think either here or on Facebook, and prepare yourselves for the next evolution in Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Sunken Treasures!
