All Star Trek storyline events will use standardized rules. 100 pt fleets. Planet object in the center of the map. Ships are faction pure. Borg Cube and Borg Sphere are banned.

August 23 – Star City Open Trial – noon – $10
August 30 – Living Card Game Demo Day – 12-5 – FREE
For anyone unfamiliar with Living Card Games, they are basically Trading Card Games with fixed distribution instead of blind boosters. For example, when an expansion comes out for Netrunner, you buy a Data Pack which costs $15 and has a full playset of all the cards from that expansion. No $50 rares. No piles of duplicates. August 30, we’ll be running demos for Netrunner, Star Wars LCG, Game of Thrones LCG, Lord of the Rings LCG, Warhammer 40k Conquest, and Doomtown.

The notable changes to the weekly schedule:
Buddyfight and X-Wing are both moving to Wednesday night. It’s just too crowded on Saturdays and those games are the best candidates to move.
D&D Encounters is also coming to Wednesday nights starting August 20th.
Thursday night is getting a full overhaul. Deckbuilding games (not TCGs or LCGs) like Ascension and DC Deckbuilding have gotten a big enough following for their own night. LCGs are also moving to Thursday night. All LCGs will have open play on Thursdays. We’ll also be able to teach most DBGs or LCGs for anyone who wants to learn.
Finally, on Saturday night, we’ll be running the Pathfinder Emerald Spire Super Dungeon. This group is already filling up fast so if you want to get in on the fun, let us know soon.
