Team-Up Mash-Up Tournament!
When: January 22nd
Starts at 11am - SHARP!
Cost: $10 per Team
I suggest teams try to play a few games together before the tournament, since we will still have timed turns!
You and a partner will team-up for this event! Any armies can team-up – except there will be NO DUPLICATE armies allowed in the team-up.
Every game will be played together, and you will be considered the same army. For example: A Troll & a Cygnar army are teamed up... they are now considered to be a Troll Cygnar army! Spells, Abilities and Feats will now affect each other! Minions that are taken in another army still follow the standard rules – no synergy unless it's normal allowed.
During a game, if a Warcaster or Warlock is killed, his warjacks / beasts are removed from play... but his units will continue to fight on!
Each Player is restricted to ONLY 1 Warlock or Warcaster for the entire tournament. For your leader, you will each need to create and hand in an army roster for the following size and types of armies:
15pt - Mangled Metal / Tooth & Claw Army
Warcaster + ONLY Warjacks OR Warlocks + ONLY Warbeasts
25pt – Standard
35pt – Highlander
There can only be ONE! One Caster, One Unit, One Unit Attachment, One Solo, one named Warjack or Beast, and only one of each type of Warjack or Warbeast is allowed (Multiple heavy and lights allowed, no duplicate types). 1 Solo that is a group is allowed – Whelps are bought in fives, you get all five.
Rosters can be created and printed out from:
Format is Modified Constructed.
Entry is Free.
(Please call the store to pre register- seating is limited)
Prizes for each of three age groups
Each player brings a 60 card modified constructed deck.
Save time by printing your decklist ahead of time using decklist building websites such as http://www.bebesearch.com/
Find details on sets allowed at http://www.magicadvisor.com/PokemonCity.html
Sorry for the short notice, but with the shipping issues with the DC 75th Anniversary HeroClix set I did not know when we would be able to have the LAUNCH PARTY. It's going to be a tight fit but we are going to squeeze in games on Sunday, December 19.
I'm not sure what the prizes will be yet, but they will be the best figures from the prize kit. The game starts at 2PM.
Entry is purchase of 3 boosters (400 points).
Remember if you get a brick or case you get bonus stuff from CSW.
I just added a new section on the lower part of this page with NEW COMIC REVIEWS brought to you by Comic Book Resources website.
Are you a fan of New Avengers or Incredible Hulk? I just restocked some back issues of both of these titles.
Meet the Fallen
Fallen Comics is a comic book company established out of York, Pennsylvania. Founded by Joey Logan and Robbie Bryan in September 2009 as a venture start-up in order to bring their ideas to life. From the elaborate characters and worlds which they create, the Fallen wish to entice their readers by allowing them to explore the mysterious dark corners of their minds.

I am really looking forward to this movie. We'll see if Ryan Reynolds can pull off Hal Jordan.
Alternate Reality Tournament!
Saturday, November 27th
11AM - ??
All money will go towards prizes!
Every player should bring in their entire army (one army). From their army, they choose 2 Warcasters / Warlocks. You MUST supply all the cards and models for an opponent to use. Those models will be put into a 'pot.' Everyone will then choose 2 casters (at random) from the 'pot.'
Those chosen models will now replace any faction affiliation with your faction, and will now support your army's Focus or Fury. Warcasters will now become Warlocks and vice Versa!
These 'Alternate Reality' casters are now the ONLY casters you can choose to run your army. You now have to build a 35pt. army around each of these 'Alternate Reality' caster. You may switch armies between rounds, but you only have to use 1 of the new 'casters.

“Did I ever tell you guys about my 20th level paladin/thief. His name is Karnak Stompevil and he’s totally awesome! He’s got a magical flying warhorse named Thunder that was a gift from the elves, a holy avenger named Throatcutter from an adventurer my brother ran, and his full plate armor which lets him totally use his thief abilties without penalties. We should totally play Dungeons and Dragons together while we’re here! I can DM, totally. I brought my dice, and I don’t need any books, since I have them memorized. Don’t worry, I’ll have Karnak come along with you guys so you don’t get killed. We can get some Mountain Dew and cheetos, and go up to my room to play. It’ll be AWESOME!”
"I hate it went then roll on a random encounter table to determine what they serve."
"and then I told Scott to sort 100,000 magic cards! Hillarious!"
"I've managed to create a crude six sider with my biscuit and corn."
"Have you guys been reading the Keystone Gamer Society Blog? It's great! Why, just the other day..."
"So, guys... who do you think is hotter, Picard or Kirk?"
- Scott (member of the Keystone Gaming Society)
Now... Which spoon do I eat the salad with again?

I don't do comic book reviews on this site as much as I should but I had to post my review of the new comic - Lady Mechanika by publisher Aspen Comics. It's a creator-owned comic by Joe Benitez (the only artist, in my opinion, who draws women better than Frank Cho and J Scott Campbell).
The art work is top notch giving a steam punk feel to what is a good introduction to this character. Issue #1 hits stores in December so make sure you add this title to your pull list.
Lady Mechanika is even on facebook. Check out her page here.
Very nice turnout for the Autumn 2010 Pokemon Battle Roads. In fact the Pokemon turnout slightly edged out our last big Magic event by 6.
Pokemon Players 1 vs Magic Players 0
Marvel has also come onboard (and I'm sure all other publishers will follow suit).

I just finished reading Paul is Dead. This is a hilarious book about the British Zombie Invasion. In this alternate universe Paul, John and George are zombies and Ringo is a ninja lord. It's a funny look at the Beatles Phenomenon as if they were zombies. Loads of true historical stuff thrown in, I found myself continuously looking stuff up on the Beatles to see what facts were true and how much of them were true.
It's a very easy and quick read. Anyone into zombies or the Beatles (which has got to be everyone) should give this book a try. It's not a comic but does have a few funny illustrations too.
I'm sticking with the whole Zombie theme and just started reading Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry. I'll let you know how it is when I'm finished.
We also got about 10 more games for our backroom public gaming shelf. Including some very popular games like ZOMBIE FLUXX and MONTY PYTHON FLUXX.
Here is a photo from my phone from our backroom on Sunday. The rain really brought the people in for Pokemon and HeroClix. At one point I counted 38 people in the back playing games. It was very crowded but seemed like everyone had a great time.
October 19 is Dentist's Worst Nightmare (Kit 37) and November 5 is Eye of the Storm (Kit 38).
As always please register for these events online in order to get the free participation prize and to be eligible to win a LIMITED EDITION MEGA figure.
The October event is free but the November event MUST be sealed (as per Privateer Press rules).
Remember Tuesdays this fall are Collectible Miniature Night at CSW.
