Keyforge 2019 Store Championship Nov. 16th at Noon
We've had almost a full year of Keyforge, including dozens of events, two sets, a few erratas and immeasurable fun at Isle of Gamers. Now it's time to get together and wage the biggest battle yet with the Isle of Gamers 2019 Store Championships!
We will be holding an Archon Solo Tournament, so bring your best deck, and remember, chains will count!
This event will follow the Advanced Tournament Structure in the Relaxed/Casual Tier. This means we will be running the event for 25+ people with the focus on fun and friendly gameplay with light competition. You should know the basics of how to play the game, but we will have judges on hand to assist with any calls. Expect the event to run from 5-6 rounds with a cut to top 8, depending on the final count of players.
Each round will be 35 minutes, and we will be doing a swiss pairing system.
We have loads of prizes to distribute all designed specifically for the Store Championship and they will break down as follows:
Top 32: 1 Chain Tracker per player
Top 8: 1 Deck Box per player
Top 4: 1 Set of Power Tokens per player
Third and 4th Place: Each player receives a "Top 4" Playmat
Second Place: After al matches have concluded the runner-up recieves the "2nd Place" playmant, plus all previous prizes
Champion: After all matches have concluded, the overall winner will be presented with the "1st Place" playmat and a pack of Card Sleeves
On top of all the physical prizes above each participant will earn Aembershards for participating, any wins, and final placement!
Intro to Dungeons & Dragons Mondays 7-10p • Nov. 18th- Dec. 9th
D&D is a massive fantasy world where you can be anyone you want and do just about anything-- It's filled with goblins, kobolds, orcs, thieves, guilds, royalty, politics, chivalry, pirates, and so much more!
It can be a bit intimidating. That’s where we come in! We want to help show you all the cool stuff that this amazing game has to offer and get past all the hard bits. Pretty soon you’ll be flinging giant fireballs and cleaving trolls in twain!
We are running a 4-week program at Isle of Gamers. The first week we show you how to make your character from concept to paper. During the following three weeks you get to take your character into an adventure designed to show you all the fun stuff you can expect to see in a full campaign. Then you should have the basic tools to join in any D&D game your friends and family will be holding. You’re also welcome to come join us at our weekly D&D games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (Be sure to preregister).
This weekly, one-month whole event costs $30, and on top of your month of games will give you 2 tickets to jump into Isle of Gamers Adventurers League, and a 10% discount on your starting gear at the end of the program.
If you do not have a DCI# you can register for one here.
This event is suggested for gamers 13+. Attendees under 16 will need a legal guardian to be present for the duration of the event.
MtG Standard - Sundays at 1p
Bring your Standard Deck or purchase a Planeswalker deck from us and join in this weekly event!
Prizing: The top 4 players will receive a promo pack, and 1st place receives a premium promo pack. The remaining players will receive a booster pack from the current set.
Kids D&D: Winter Session
It is a Time of Peace in Faerun. It has remained so for countless years. Wars are a thing of the past. Most cities dotting the Sword Coast are metropolitan melting pots, centers of varying cultures and unique fusions of identity. The older generations of adventurers are gradually fading into obscurity...
...all but one.
A helmed Knight known as the Paladin Primarch is encouraging the next generation of heroes to take up arms against the ancient evils of the world, a return to simpler times when you knew your cause was just and righteous.
Will you join in the crusade?
There are different experiences for each Session's groups, but kids will have the same questions to explore during the Winter Season of Kids D&D, which will run for 12 weeks.
For kids, ages 8-18, who want to learn to play or already love to play Dungeons & Dragons. There will be a max of 6 kids in each group and one very experienced and friendly Game Master.
The events will take place at Illusive Comics & Games, 1270 Franklin Mall, Santa Clara in Franklin Square. The phone number is 408-985-7481.
New players will be given a pre-generated character, and more experienced players will learn to roll a character. The campaigns will be based upon 5th Edition D&D and run the length of the quarter. The kids will only need a pencil and a set of dice. We have dice available at our shops.
Gamers will learn to work together as a team, practicing creative problem solving and growing their imaginations.
Guardians do not need to stay during the event, unless their children need assistance. Guardians do need to return promptly at the end of the gaming. We have plenty of seating for the parents in our shop, along with Wi-Fi and movies. We also have reading material (we ARE a comic shop after all), as well as beverages and snacks for purchase.
There will be a $5 fee for each minute Guardians are late for pick up, starting 5 minutes after the event has ended.
STRICT RULES OF CONDUCT:
- No attacking other characters. The children and their characters should always play together, not at odds.
- No throwing, cursing, or yelling (except out of joy)
- Children that have a difficult time moderating their emotions should have their aide or parent attend the sessions with them.
- Skipped sessions cannot be made up by attending another group
- Any act of violence or verbal abuse will lead to immediate ejection from the group. There will be no refunds.
- We know that it can be emotionally involving for some, but this is a game. The most important thing is that everyone is having fun.
- No playing on electronics during the event
Keep in mind there are no make up sessions--if you miss a Saturday, you cannot drop by a Monday session to make it up.
MtG Pioneer Constructed - Saturdays at 4p
We have a brand new format announced by WotC and we are eager to try it out! Build your favorite deck out of cards from any set from Return to Ravnica forward and see how it fits into this evolving meta!
