The weekend after that on Saturday, 09/30, (boy, this month blew by!) we have our Geek Girl Con Ixalan Release Drafts at noon & 4 for that anyone coming in from GCC (we’re just a short walk away!) gets $5 OFF of our usual $15 buy-in to join.

Then, looking a little further out, the Wizards are releasing both a new Modern Icons and a new Unstable set and we’ll be drafting both; the former in November, the latter in December.sneaky
We’re also developing a Modern Tournament to benefit Gay City which we will announce details about soon and have our regular Wednesday Night Magic Modern Tournaments every week if you want to prepare for it yourself. All of these events and more can always be found on our Events Page if you have any further questions.

Come on up and see us!

We’re just a short walk away from the Convention Center through Seattle’s premiere Capitol Hill neighborhood. Not only do we have food, drinks (including a beer and cider bar), a tabletop game library and a retro arcade for you

but we’ve got great events for you all weekend long!

Starting with Party Games Night on Friday Night! Across the Board Games, That’s What She Said, Skulldug and Sindicate Lager team up to bring you a fun, friendly, welcoming night of party gaming. This is a GREAT way to get to know people and start your con right.

Then, Saturday, at noon and 4pm. We give you your first chance anywhere to draft Magic’s exciting new Dragons of Tarkir set. Drafts will be 2 Dragons 1 Fate, cost $15 per person, run in three round swiss style pods of 8 and have generous prize support. This is a GREAT way to give the new set a spin and come out with some high value cards.

Then, on Saturday Night, come and join the creators of Rat Queens and their special guests from throughout the comics industry for our 2nd Annual Rat Queens Social Club, a meet and greet benefit for Gay City.

And finally, to help you recover from the Rat Queens Social Club and the Pink Party, our BFFs from Queer Geek are hosting a special Comicon edition of their monthly Boardgame Meetup for you to meet people, play games and have a GREAT Emerald City Comicon experience!

So come on up and see us! We promise that we’ll have something fun and engaging for you to do see and experience every day that you are here from noon until at least 10pm every night (later on Saturday 😉 ).

Whew!

You know it’s busy around here when the last event update was a season ago and the monthly update comes out two weeks into the month! Be that as it may, we’ve got a lot coming up for you so let’s dive right in!

First up, we’re thrilled to be hosting our first poetry reading since the AWP was in town, Luke Bloomfield and Mike Young’s Western Snowmelt Tour!

After that, it’s all about the Dragons of Tarkir.

We’ll have Prerelease Events on Mar 21st & 22nd ($30 buy in, events at noon and 6pm, preregistration is now open in-person or over the phone) and Release Drafts on March 28th (Noon & 4pm, $15 buy in, registration opens on day of event).

But the big news around here in March is always Emerald City Comicon. Which means that we’ll have very special episodes of both our monthly Party Games Night and our Queer Geek Boardgame Meetups for you. We’ll also be running our Indie Press Revolution booth at the entrance of the North Galleria for Games on Demand. And we’ll be hosting our Second Annual Rat Queens After Party as a fundraiser for Gay City.

So come on out and see what we’ve got going for you! We’ve got open gaming tables, a well stocked game library and a calendar full of great events for you when you do.

See you soon,
