New Stock! July 22, 2014

Posted by Perry - 07/22/14

Hey folks, it’s been a while since we’ve had a stock update. Remember, we try to keep our shelves supplied every week with the latest and greatest, but if  you don’t see a game you want just let us know and we might be able to bring it in!

These are some of the games we got in last week (restock and new stock): Flash Point, Rex, Room 25, Splendor, Stone Age, Robinson Crusoe, Ugg-Tect, Sentinels of the Multiverse, and Relic.

Flash Point Rex room 25Splendor stone age RobinsonCrusoe ugg-tect Sentinels core game Relic

 

Three games I’d like to specifically spotlight for you. First off, a brand new game through Z-Man: SULTANIYA

Sultaniya

“The sultan has issued a decree: Whoever can build the most amazing palace in the city of Sultaniya will be made Grand Vizier. Become a character from 1001 Arabian Nights and build graceful minarets, dazzling gates and soaring cupolas to draw the eye of the sultan and carve your name in history. Players will carefully select the best building tiles to erect the most impressive structures, scoring points for following patterns and fulfilling secret objectives. Earn sapphires, and use them to secure the services of the mighty Djinn, whose aid will be invaluable in your quest to create the most stunning palace the city has ever seen.” – from boardgamegeek.ca (check out the site for pictures of the game pieces!)

Our second spotlight game is CITY OF REMNANTS.

city of remnants

“Hot rain falls down upon a cold, rotting city. Here the Yugai, a species of militant humanoids, leave the survivors of the worlds they have ransacked and destroyed. It is a prison and a work camp, a place for those who lived through Yugai invasion to live out their remaining years as slaves. This is Gatorum, the City of Remnants.

In City of Remnants, players take on the roles of gang leaders, each one with unique qualities and motivations. Players will struggle to control the city, but only the winner can decide the city’s future. Many paths to victory lie before you. Bid for gang members who provide a variety of shady skills. Get an edge with weapons and other sundries from the black market. Build districts that can provide you with advantages, production and income, but beware because a greedy opponent might sweep in and take over the work of your own hands.

City of Remnants combines strong resource management, auction, and conversion mechanisms with spatial tactics, assymetric player powers, area control and direct conflict. A variety of tools, different every game, are at your disposal to build up your gang and claim the city for yourself. But watch out for the Yugai police force, who will meddle with everyone’s plans!” – from boardgamegeek.ca (Go check out the site for more information, and pictures of the box interior!)

Our Third spotlight game is RIVET WARS!

Rivet Wars

“Rivet Wars is a miniatures boardgame that springs forth from the warped imagination of Ted Terranova – set on a world that never quite left World War I but with crazy technology like walking tanks, diesel powered armor, unicycled vehicles and armor plated cavalry!

Don’t let the cute visuals fool you, it’s a world full of angst, war-torn camaraderie and dark humor.

Rivet Wars is at its heart a strategy game, with both players deploying units each round to counter the threats set forth by their opponent and stay one tactical step ahead.Heavily influenced by Ted’s experience working on RTS games like Rise of Nations, players gather resources (bunkers and capture points) and use these to deploy streams of new units!There’s an ebb and flow on the tactical landscape and you can stock up surprises for your opponent to be unleashed even as he thinks he’s winning!

Box Contents: 38 highly-detailed plastic miniatures • 34-page rulebook • 16 stat cards • 2 stat dashboards • 24 Action! cards • 10 Secret Mission cards • 9 double-sided tiles • 1 tracking tile • 6 bunker markers • 6 strategic objective markers • 6 minefield markers • 6 tank trap markers • 6 razor wire Markers • 12 flag tokens • 5 gas plastic markers • 4 victory plastic markers • 24 damage plastic markers • 6 six-sided dice”

Posted by Perry - 04/24/14

It’s been a while coming, but here are some pictures from our X-Wing Store Championship event that took place on Sunday, April 13, 2014. We had 12 people register and put their squads to the test. Biggs squared off against Vader. Vader squared off against Wedge. And Wedge squared off against…WEDGE!

We played four rounds, and I’ve posted the results of each round below for everyone’s enjoyment.

There were cheers of joy and cries of anguish and all in all a lot of fun. In the end, there could be only one:
Byron Mudry emerged triumphant with his rebel squad!
Second place went to Chris Allen, third place to Ty Storey, and fourth place to Michael Haire.

Thanks to everyone who came out! Click HERE for the photo album and sport star stats!

Android Netrunner Store Championship!

Posted by Perry - 04/15/14

April 28, 2014
1:00 pmto5:00 pm

Netrunner Banner

Imagine Games and Hobbies will be running
an Android Netrunner store championship event!

When: Sunday, April 27
Time: Doors open at noon, first game at 1:00pm sharp
Cost: $10
# of rounds: Variable depending on number of players (3 rounds minimum)

Prizes include:

 Netrunner 2014 prizes

  • Store Champion: Store Championship 2014 Playmat + deckbox + Store Championship Plaque + 1 bye in any Regional Championship.
  • Runnerup: Store Championship 2014 Playmant + deckbox
  • 3rd and 4th Place: Store Championship Playmat
  • Participation: All players who participate will receive an alternate Kati Jones card at the end of the event!

Other Details: 
The event will follow standard tournament rules for Android: Netrunner tournaments, available on the Fantasy Flight Website HERE). All you need to play is a Runner and Corp deck and tokens.

Preregister now at the store! We hope to see you out.

—————————————-
UPDATE (April 17):

So with the release of the new tournament rules I should let everyone know that the Imagine Store Championship will be classified as a competitive event (see the definition below, it’s still very beginner friendly). It will still be a normal swiss style tournament of about 4 rounds as well. There’s a sign up sheet at the front counter of the store or feel free to call or message them to put your name on there. We’re up to 6 already with plenty of room for more!

Competitive Event:
Competitive events require players to have general knowledge of a game’s rules. While experienced players will come to these events to compete for prizes, players should not be punished for their lack of understanding in the finer points of Android: Netrunner rules. Players can come to these events expecting a consistent experience from store to store. This tier includes Store Championships and unique, one-off events such as the X-Wing™ Wave 4 Assault at Imdaar Alpha event or the Android: Netrunner Chronos Protocol Tour.

And of course, here’s a LINK to the new FAQ and Tournament rules, for everyone to peruse.
