Black Friday and Then Some

As usual our black Friday sale will extend longer than just one crazy rushed day. 20% off everything in the store except drinks, snacks, tournament fees & consignment items until close of business December 6th. Board games will be an extra 5% off. Yes, the discount applies to Magic singles. Booster boxes of Magic will still be 30% off ($105.76 including tax). Happy holidays everyone.

Enter 2006! We’ve Joined Twitter!!

Re-joined really. I decided to dust off my account and see if I can use it for good. Follow us at GameVaultVA for tournament updates, new releases, & announcements.

Open Late For Historicon

It may be coincidence that we are open late Thursday, 07/16 for the Magic Origins release and Friday 07/17 as part of a new summer schedule but it benefits the Historicon participants! When Historicon closes we will be open with bright, twinkly eyes…or something. We’ll be open with space to play, cold drinks in the fridge to keep you caffeinated, and stuff to buy if you’re so inclined. Join us. Please get directions off our link here.

Closed Monday 6/8/15 til 5:30pm

We will be closed on Monday, June 8th until 5:30pm as we are transitioning to new business software which requires us to inventory the entire store (yeah, again!). We apologize for any inconvenience (hopefully we won’t have to do this again).

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Edit: We will be closed on both Tuesday 6/9 and Wednesday 6/10 until 5:30pm as the update is not going as smoothly as hoped.

Edit again: We will also be closed Thursday 6/11 until 5:30pm. Anything left un-inventoried will be burned in the parking lot promptly at 5:30…or something like that. It WILL be done by then.

Sunday 5pm Dragons of Tarkir PreRelease is cancelled

We had 115 players in our Saturday tournaments!!! With only 45 more packs for both of Sunday’s events I believe we have to call the second tournament. We will not have a 5pm Sunday tournament. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thursday, March 5th – Open Early, Closing at 3pm

We are open now (9:45am) until it starts to look dangerous outside. Come meet your gaming needs before you’re snowed in for the next week/day/whatever. I will close with very little notice today, probably not long after noon. Call ahead if you’re trying to get here after that.

Update: We will close at 3pm today. Please be safe everyone.

Thursday, February 26th

Yes we are open today – in fact I’m here now. Come on in for some gaming fun while your chicken office/school is closed. (Our parking lot is of course not plowed because Blackwood Real Estate stinks as a property management company.)

Closing Early Saturday, Feb 21

Due to adverse weather conditions we are closing today at 5pm. All events that have not started yet will be rescheduled. Sorry for the inconvenience but if you don’t skid off the road and get hurt you can complain to me the next time you see me. Stay safe people.

Limited Game Space Saturday, 02/21

The gaming side of the store will be packed Saturday 02/21 from 11-7pm with various pre-planned games (X-Wing, Bloodbowl, Warmachine, and Magic). We expect the large wargaming tables to be especially full. If you plan on coming for a pickup game please call ahead. Also, if the weather looks questionable call ahead or check our website. Any changes to our schedule will be posted as soon as we make a decision.

Open 12-5pm Tuesday, 02/17/15

We are open from 12-5pm today, Tuesday 02/17/15. Our parking lot is of course not plowed because Blackwood Real Estate (property “managers”) are too cheap to plow more than a single strip down the center of the parking lot. Driving in here is a risk. We’re closing before the roads freeze again tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please be safe out there.
