Thank you to everyone that attended our Hour of Devastation League. Starting with just 3 boosters and 30 card deck, players competed against each other adding an additional booster every week. Players received one point for every game played, and a further 3 points for each win.

After our final few games on Saturday we have the final standings ...

Gary 26 points (6 wins and 2 loses).
Paul  24 points (5 wins and 4 loses).
Tim 21 points (4 wins and 3 loses)

FNM Events this August

There will be four Friday's this month and we will be back to normal Standard/Modern rotation. Starting today with Modern. This will mean that there will be 2 Standard and 2 Modern. The promo card this month is 'Renegade Rallier'.

While it hasn't taken off in Standard, Renegade Rallier actually has a strong spot in the Modern metagame as fetch lands enable the powerful ability basically at will. The updated art from David Palumbo is also really nice...


In addition to the main FNM event I will be testing continuing the idea of a smaller FNM event which will start at 5pm. This will be free to enter with FNM promo cards for first and second place (it will still be sanctioned and count toward KD points). This event will be the best of one game and rounds will last just 30 mins. The first one will be rescheduled League from Saturday due to this weekend being MTG Game Day! The proposed event formats are as follows...

4th August .... Hour of Devastation League
11th August .... Pauper
18st August .... Peasant
25th August .... Rainbow Stairwell

For the younger players there will also be casual FNM from 4pm which is not a tournament but every play gets an FNM promo (sometimes older ones) just for playing!

Imploding Kittens


This is the first expansion pack to Exploding Kittens and includes 20 new cards illustrated by The Oatmeal.
  • Expands the core deck from 5 to 6 players.
  • 100% compatible with any Exploding Kittens deck.
  • Includes a human-sized "cone of shame," which is used as part of the game.
This is an expansion only.  It requires a copy of Exploding Kittens

Coming Soon...

A mind-shattering journey into the world of HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos warped into the shape of a Love Letter experience.
You’re not trying to gain affection from the Princess. You are trying to eliminate your rivals for power as you seek to understand the cosmic horror that lurks just beyond what we foolishly call “reality”.
In each round only one player will prevail. Use deduction and luck to eliminate other players or watch as their own madness consumes them.
Will you accept madness as the price that must be paid for Knowledge Man Was Not Meant to Know? Or will you attempt to hold the shreds of your sanity together in the face of eldritch nightmares attempting to enter and destroy our world?

Pokemon Pre-release


On Sunday 30th July at 2pm we will be running a Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Burning Shadows Prerelease tournament. This will allow players to receive and play with cards from the upcoming Sun & Moon—Burning Shadows expansion a week before the expansion's official release date!

Each participant receives a Prerelease box containing a 22-card Evolution pack, four 10-card booster packs, and an exclusive foil promo card. The Evolution pack provides a solid foundation which, along with the booster packs and Energy provided by us (which you are welcome to keep), is used to construct a 40-card deck.

How much does the event cost?
Just £20 per player and we have spaces available for up to 16 players in total. Please book you space as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

What are the prizes?
Every player will receive 2 additional boosters at the end of the event and those that win the most games in each age group will also receive additional booster.

What do I need to know?
Please provide or bring your Player ID number, if you have one. If you don't have a Player ID, one will be given to you at the event.

See the Pokémon Tournament Rules for more information about what to bring to an event.

Make sure you arrive on time. If you are late for registration, you may not be able to play in the event! Will will start at 2pm (After the League Challenge which will be held in the morning)

To participate in the event, you must be a player in good standing and abide by the Tournament Rules.

What is the tournament structure?
The tournament is run using the Limited Format and Age-Modified Swiss pairings. See the Pokémon Tournament Rules for information about the Limited Format and Swiss. The number of Swiss rounds that will be played will depend on total attendance at the event. Players use a 40-card deck and play using four Prize cards.

Where can I book my space?

You can pay for your ticket at the shop anytime now up until the day of the event or you can get tickets online at EVENTBRITE...
