Coming up this Saturday, June 18th is our 2nd annual anniversary game day. This year, we’re going to be super comfy with brand new AC in the game room (they’re installing it as I type this), a fun game day game, new titles in the library, and a Dads & Grads SALE! That’s right, we’re taking an additional 5% off on all purchases this Saturday only (That’s 25% off for you newbies!). Some restrictions apply: any special orders placed on Saturday, and X-Wing miniatures are not part of the sale, but all in-stock board games and accessories are.
And speaking of new games, I’ve got a ton of new stuff coming in, including the new “The Princess Bride” games, The Gallerist, Sushi Go! party, Castles of Burgundy: The Card game, Alien Frontiers, Keyflower, Archon, and of course our 200 plus game library! I’ll have other surprises for you as well, but I’m not saying anything, you have to come out to see!
If you’re coming (and I hope you are, this is a big day!), and you want to play or learn a specific game, just send me an email, or contact me via the meetup and I’ll do my best to get you and a couple others together to play.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update, so I apologize for that. I’ve been busy to say the least. The meetup group is growing; we’re currently at 472 members, with about 10% participation (roughly), and 2-4 events per week. I’d like to get WAY more people coming to events, so come to events! The game library has been updated with a couple games. I’ve added the Ghostbusters Coop game and Libertalia as well as expansions for Abyss and Istanbul (which is back in stock!).
I’ve added stock for the following:
- X-Wing Wave 8 ships (Ghost, Inquisitor’s Tie, Punishing One, and Mist Hunter).
- X-Wing (I have just about every ship available, except the huge ships)
- Valeria: Card Kingdoms
- Valeria: Card Kingdoms – King’s Guard Expansion
- Valeria: Card Kingdoms – Expansion Pack #2: Undead Samurai
- Champions of Midgard
- Android: Mainframe
- Star Wars Rebellion
- 7 Wonders
- Carcassonne: Gold Rush
I’m always looking for ways to improve your gaming experience. I look at everything from our tables and chairs, constantly adding to the game library (over 200 games now), teaching and demoing games, running game-specific game nights (X-Wing, etc…), and I think the next improvement is reducing chair noise. I’m sure you’ve all seen the old trick of slipping a tennis ball over the feet of a chair. I want to do this but I need 160 tennis balls. So, if you can find it in your heart to donate a couple used balls, I’ll make good use of them. Just bring them with you to the April game day or Fuddruckers, etc…
I’ve added the following games to the demo library for February (and beyond!):
- Grand Austrian Hotel
- Tragedy Looper
- Isle of Skye
- Mission Red Planet
- Agricola French Deck
Back in stock and new stock:
- X-Wing Bespin and Death Star 2 playmats
- Star Realms: Colony Wars
- Star Realms: Cosmic Gambits
- Roll for the Galaxy
- Roll for the Galaxy: Ambition
- Lords of Waterdeep
- Isle of Skye
- Tons of X-Wing ships
- Tokaido: Matsuri Expansion
- Lanterns: The Harvest Festival
- Coup: Rebellion G54
- Pandemic: State of Emergency
- Pandemic: Contagion (standalone game)
- Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn
- Machi Koro: Deluxe
- Istanbul: Mocha and Baksheesh
- 7 Wonders
Happy new year everyone! Our January game day is coming up on the 16th and Double Exposure Herald, Eric Cooper will be on-hand to teach Pixel Tactics.
We’ve got over 200 games in the demo library, including the newly added Stockpile, Spyfall, Broom Service, Dead of Winter, The Grizzled, Codenames, and many others.
I’ve also got a ton of games for purchase, even though I didn’t do a game day in November or December 2015, I still kept my ordering up, so there’s a bunch of new stuff for you. I’ll be doing another order in the next couple days, so if there’s something you’re looking for, please let me know and I’ll pick it up!
I’m proud to be working with the Solano Food Bank again. This Saturday, October 17th, come out and support a great cause.
Demo library updates:
I’ve added a bunch of games to the demo library including the excellent 2-player Tides of Time, the brand new Epic card game, Mottanai, Bad Beets (think Coup meets Love Letter), and The Grizzled. Come check out our demo library. We’re just shy of 200 games now!!
When I first opened Bad Zero Games, I had to be very selective about which games I added to the demo library. One game was a huge hit and sold out almost immediately, and I’ve not been able to get copies until now. I’m happy to announce that Kittens in a Blender is back in Stock after almost a year!!! I’ve also gotten a couple copies of Mysterium, and three copies of Adventure Time Love Letter. Restocked Jamaica, La Granja, Legendary Deck Builder, Adventure Time Fluxx, Bad Beets, Camel Up and the new expansions for both Camel up (Supercup) and Istanbul (Mokka and Bakschisch). If you have Machi Koro, make sure you pick up Millionaire’s Row, it really balances the Harbor Expansion. Additional stock updates include Smash Up: Munchkin, SURVIVE: SPACE ATTACK!, and Mission: Red Planet (great area control with steam punk/space theme).
