Black Friday, Standard Showdown, and More!

So, we have a lot of information to cover in this post, but before we go any further, let's take a second.  Turn to someone around you, tell them something you're grateful to them for.  Doesn't matter how small or silly it seems.  Just do that.  Remember that this weekend and in the coming month simple acts of human kindness are going to be how some of us make it through.

Did you do that?


So here goes the info dump:  This weekend we're running a bunch of sales because A) it's Black Friday, B) it's Shop the Hill Weekend, and C) we want to Thank You, our customers for everything you've done to make this year a successful one for us!  Starting Friday, a different part of the store will be on sale all weekend.  In addition, we have a few Magic tournaments that you'll want to know about if you play Magic!  We'll address each of these as we get to them!

Shop the Hill 2016

Friday, Black Friday

In keeping with the shopping insanity that is supposed to be Black Friday, we're taking 15% Off all of our Comics, Graphic Novels, and T-Shirts!  In addition, we'll be having our regularly scheduled Friday Night Magic at 7:30 PM for those of your who are absolutely done with shopping or dealing with the in-laws.

Friday Night Magic: The format for this week's Friday Night Magic is Standard, and we're doing a special prize format for this particular Friday Night Magic.  Instead of our usual $4 Entry Fee and store credit, we'll be charging $5 and prizes will be in the form of Pack per Win.  So each round you win, you get 1 Standard legal booster as a prize!

Which is good practice, because tomorrow is....

Saturday, Standard Showdown
