Ring in the New Year at Comic Quest

new-years-eve-anniversary-firework-celebration-party-blueComic Quest will be staying open until 2 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31 so we can ring in the New Year Comic Quest style! We invite you to bring your family, bring your friends…and feel free to bring food and a cooler of drinks (NO ALCOHOL) and play games all night! Wear your pajamas if you want!
It is going to be a laid-back, fun night for everyone with a few Organized Play events including a Magic the Gathering Player Appeciation Tournament, MtG Commander, a Pokemon Tournament and even a Pokken Tournament! We will also have other games going on throughout the night like Versus 2PCG, several Asmodee games and so much more! Plus, you are welome to bring your own games OR play any of the games we have available in our board game library!
If the bar scene isn’t your thing, definitely put this event into your plans! We will be giving away door prizes all night and you won’t want to miss out on this fun way to bring in 2017!

AEG releases for the first quarter of 2017

AEG is ramping up for the new year with a couple new releases, one of which will either make you happy or make you very upset.  And that polarizing release is the Destination Fun Combo Pack with expansions for Planes, Trains, and Automobiles all in one box.  This will be great for those that own all three games because you will get content to expand the games all at once, but those of us who don’t own all three, this is putting a lot of content we don’t need into a single box.  This issue is compounded by an MSRP that is significantly higher than the other games, so hopefully AEG will see the light and split the box later.  Until then, look for this on store shelves in March.

Next is a competitive disc flicking game called Light and Dark, where you are two druids trying to either turn everything dark, or turn everything light.  Game setup will have you placing druids and torches all around the table and then you will be flicking your discs around and playing cards in an effort to convert everyone to your side.  The game sounds light-hearted and fun, so look for it on store shelves in January.

Next is a game from Kickstarter called The Captain is Dead, where you are a star-ship crew trying to fight off an attack after your heroic leader was killed.  Everyone will be playing a different character with different strengths and weaknesses as you run around fixing the ship and fending off the invaders.  Look for this on store shelves in February, just don’t be wearing a red shirt.

Last is a party game from Hobby World called Think it Up, where the winner will not be the most knowledgeable, but the one who could think the fastest.  In the game you will flip over a letter card and a topic card, and from those two cards you have one minute to blurt out the answer, if you are the fastest you get points.  After a set number of rounds the person with the most points is the winner.  Look for this quick thinking party game on store shelves in February.

You can expect to find these awesome new titles from AEG on Comic Quest shelves in 2017! And if you want to make sure you get your copy, Comic Quest is happy to take pre-orders! Just talk to our counter staff next time you’re in the store!
