By popular demand, we have doubled the amount of Magic drafting we will be doing on Wednesday nights! Now the first and third Wednesdays of the month will be Drafts & Drafts. Get ready to crack some packs!
Note: The fifth Wednesday of this month (the 29th) will be an off night for official Magic this time around, but you are more than welcome to come out and play.
We tap the beers. You tap the cards. Drafts & Drafts.
Vampires, and zombies, and werewolves! Oh, my! Halloween has come to Emerald Tavern and it’s brought things that go bump in the night with it! Join us for a night of monstrous fun on October 28th from 6 – 10 pm. We will be playing every monster-themed game we can get our claws on, from King of Tokyo to Last Night on Earth. So don your favorite costume and join us for a night of hair-raising fun with scary good drink specials that will leave you crawling out of your grave for more!
Costume contest at 8 p.m. Must be present to win.
Saddle up, partners. We’re riding into Gomorra, better known round these parts as Doomtown. Forget the wild west you’ve been hearing ‘bout, stranger. This here is the Weird West, where magic is real, things really do go bump in the night, and science is a deadly weapon. Here in Doomtown, getting shot is the least of your worries. This place is dangerous, but the rewards will be worth it…if you survive.
Doomtown: Reloaded is a new Expandable Card Game from AEG set in the weird west, equal parts western, horror, and science fiction. Doomtown mixes deck customization, tactical movement, and poker to determine who is the most deserving of Gomorra and its dwindling riches. We will be hosting demos of the game all afternoon on Saturday, October 11th, so come learn to play Doomtown: Reloaded and see if you have what it takes to take Gomorra.
The test month of Magic Wednesdays went well, so from here on out Wednesday is our official night for Magic: The Gathering! The monthly schedule will work as follows:
1st Week: Drafts & Drafts
2nd Week: Casual
3rd Week: Standard Constructed
4th Week: Casual
