Our pre-orders are now live for the newest Magic: The Gathering expansion, Rivals of Ixalan, which releases next Friday, 1/19/18!
In-store we will retail boxes well below SRP at $105+tax, but on a limited basis. Better yet - to reserve your box to pick up on Release Day for $100, email manager@DiceCity.Games or call 443.42.GAMES ...or pay ahead for just $99 via PayPal to manager@DiceCity.Games
Filled with Dinosaurs, Pirates, and powerful new Merfolk, this set is sure to be a ...hit!
The Wizards Play Network reserves pre-release kits for local game stores over two months in advance of pre-release now, so while we were too new of a WPN shop to be offered a pre-release by WOTC when they were closing registration a couple months ago, we are excited for Draft Weekend - starting next Friday - and to start hosting Standard events weekly after that!
Also, good news: we are now a “Core Level” store, so we will definitely be hosting a Dominaria Pre-release this Spring! In fact, we are on track to be and “Advanced” level store by then as well, which means more perks for our patrons!
It's a new store that's still in the "soft open" phase, but the owner and staff are incr...edibly warm and welcoming.
Can't recommend them highly enough.
The owners ar...e also very committed to local sourcing of games and products.
I love playing here and you will too!
Five weeks later, I find myself checking in his shop at least once a week to see what events are happening,
