Attack Wing today at 5PM

Attack Wing Month 3 is today at 5pm.

Because of the foul up last month we will be skipping Month 2 and awarding grand prize based on Month 1 and 3 events.

Sorry for the confusion.  We will reboot with the next storyline event.

P.S
We do have the blind boosters for the event.

ClixCon Update

I've prepped all night for today's Con in Store event for HeroClix.

I think we are ready.

There are VERY LIMITED number of Spider-man team bases and Captain Sentinels.

Remember you must be a Battle Royale player to purchase any of the exclusives.

Whatever is left (if anything) will be stocked at 5pm tonight.

Lots of cool prizes and some awesome rare boosters for today's events.

Prometheus: Fire and Stone

Dark Horse Comics is having a big crossover between their Aliens, Predator, Aliens vs. Predator and Prometheus comics, all under the heading "Fire and Stone." Here's a bit of a teaser:


The structure of Fire and Stone is such that each of the four series that make up the event - Prometheus: Fire and Stone, Aliens: Fire and Stone, AVP: Fire and Stone and Predator: Fire and Stone - are published on an eight-week cycle, with a new issue of one of the four series released every two weeks. All four series share concepts, characters and situations, with the storyline resolving in a special issue released after all four series have completed their run.

The first book comes out September 10, and the next one two weeks after that. This crossover looks like it's going to be really interesting, so subscribe now if you want to make sure you don't miss an issue!

Lots of Kid's Items at the Flea Market

Con In Your Store (Clix-Con 2014) Purchase Exclusives



I have been getting tons of questions regarding the CLIX-CON EXCLUSIVE PURCHASE items.
Here are the answers to all that I have received:

Q: Will you have these in stock during the CON IN YOUR STORE (aka Clix-Con 2014)?
A: I don't know.  I hope so but WizKids and our distributor are not giving my a guarantee.  I WILL ANNOUNCE ON OUR WEBSITE WHEN WE GET THE SHIPPING NOTICE.

Q: How may I purchase these?
A: You must be a player in at least 1 of the Battle Royale events on August 30th to purchase these RARE figures.

Q: May I purchase more than 1?
A: Initially  these will be 1 per person.  After the end of the Con raffle (between 4 and 5pm) if there are any of these items left then yes you may purchase additional ones.

Q: Do you have enough for everyone?
A: No.  I'm sorry we will not have enough to fill the demand for these figures.  We are doing our best to get these in as many different player's hands as we can.

Q: What will you have?
A: Captain America Sentinel, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (very limited), Trinity of Sin, Shuma Gorath, Black Lantern Anti-Monitor (very limited), Zombie Galactus (very limited).

Q: How much will these be?
A: I'm not exactly sure yet.  Again I am waiting to see what our distributor tells us.

Q: What boosters will the Battle Royale events be played with?
A: We will randomly select from the following: Fear Itself, Iron Man, Deadpool, Chaos War, Teen Titans, and Guardians of the Galaxy.  Battle Royale events are $15 per event.  They start at 11am and run every hour until the last batch starts at 3 (unless we run out of prizes or product).

Clix Con 2014 Details

I know I owe everyone another raffle item announcement for our Clix-Con event next Saturday, August 30. Look for it late tonight or tomorrow.

In the meantime here is what to expect at Clix-Con 2014 next Saturday.

BATTLE ROYALES
Beginning at 11AM we will start pulling groups of 4 people into pods to play on a single map.
Cost is $15, you will receive a sealed booster of one of the following sets: Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, Legion, Teen Titans.

You will open the booster handed to you and select one figure for your team, then pass remaining boosters to your left. You will repeat this until all figures are drafted.

This is your team (there is no point calculation).  These are not the figures you will be keeping though (more in a minute).

You will play for 45 minutes. When time is called points are tallied and standings are finalized.
The winner of the map will get a random LE from our CON-IN-STORE mega prize box. All figures from boosters are then selected by the order of finishing (using a snake draft 2,3,4,4,3,2,1).
These are your figures to keep and take home with you.

For every event you play in, you will receive 1 FREE raffle ticket for the END OF CON RAFFLE.
For every WIN you will receive another FREE raffle ticket.
You may also purchase additional raffle tickets.

There are a maximum number of 4 Battle Royale events per hour, which means we will have a maximum of 16 players playing at one time (yes we can make adjustments if we must).

If our booster supply runs out, the Battle Royales will be finished and the Con will be over early.

At 12PM the next set up Battle Royales will start up. Same rules, different pairings and different prizes.
Again at 1PM, 2PM, and finally 3PM (as long as we still have boosters).

At 4PM everyone will have a final chance to buy additional raffle tickets before the raffle drawling.

RAFFLE
We will draw tickets to hand out special prizes to raffle ticket holders.  You must be present to win.  There are multiple prizes to hand out.  You can win multiple times.

PURCHASE EXCLUSIVES
We will have (at least we hope to have) a very limited number of PURCHASE EXCLUSIVES. Our waiting list for the purchase exclusives is full, but we hope to have more available.

WARNING - There is a very good chance these WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE after August 30th.  We can not hold these for you.  

If these do not arrive in time from our distributor, they will be available at a later date.

VIP TICKETS
There is also a VIP Con ticket available to purchase.
If you know you want to play in 1 of each of the Battle Royales then I recommend buying a VIP ticket. The ticket is $50 (a $25 savings).  The ticket also guarantees you a spot each hour.
