Later this week, we’ll be running a Smash Up tournament using the All Stars event kit! Each player will get an exclusive All Stars faction deck just for playing, with additional prizes for the top two players after four rounds (including an official Smash Up playmat). Each table will use the core Smash Up game and a single expansion, with each table getting a different expansion each round. Admission is only $15 and you can register on our event listing today!
Two popular programs from our Cedar Park store, which has been closed for about a month now, are returning to Redcap’s on Tuesdays in August. Beginning next month, our Tuesday board game night will be targeted at providing gaming space for the LGBTQIA community, and will be joined by the return of our Magic: the Gathering night for women, femmes, and trans folk. We’re excited to offer these programs again, and to see them grow bigger than ever before!
For all of the Smash Up players out there, AEG has published a survey to collect data. Those who participate will be mailed a free Sheep faction deck for Smash Up as a thank you. It’s a quick survey, mostly collecting data about gaming habits, though it does require that you sign up for their mailing list. We just wanted to make sure everyone saw it in time!
We’re running Geek & Sundry’s Tabletop Day again at the end of April, as we have every year since the program’s inception! Hosted again by Nicole Kline of Cardboard Fortress, Tabletop Day at Redcap’s is a bridge to Philadelphia’s vibrant world of game design. Over a dozen independent designers will be on-hand to showcase and teach some of the games they’ve designed, and of course the Bingo cards return, giving participants the chance to win prizes just by playing some of these incredible games!
Now up for preorder (in-store only) is the new board game from Games Workshop, Assassinorum: Execution Force. Set in the world of Warhammer 40,000, Assassinorum is a cooperative board game that utilizes plastic miniatures that can also be used in games of 40K. Assassinorum: Execution Force comes with:
- 3x Chaos Space Marines
- 15x Chaos Cultists
- 1x Chaos Terminator Lord with Familiar
- 1x Callidus Assassin
- 1x Culexus Assassin
- 1x Eversor Assassin
- 1x Vindicare Assassin
The chaos models are existing sculpts, already available separately for games of 40K, but each of the assassins features a brand new sculpt, and is in plastic for the first time. We are only able to acquire 5 copies of this game, so if you’re interested in picking up a copy, you should preorder right away! We’ll be accepting preorders today and tomorrow, at the suggested retail price (contact us for details), and the game releases May 2nd at 12:00 AM.
As a bonus, the first two interested customers to preorder Assassinorum can purchase a copy of the most recent edition of Space Hulk at 30% off!
