To plug the upcoming StarCraft II computer game, I'll be hosting a Fantasy Flight Games StarCraft Celebration event at Gamesday, April 17th, at the Los Altos Library. The StarCraft game starts at 10am. We have three seats left.

I'll also have other Blizzard FFG games to play throughout the day:
* World of Warcraft: The Boardgame
* World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game
* Warcraft

The StarCraft boardgame is on the complicated side, but if you can play Munchkin or Magic, you should be able to pick up the Warcraft games.

Send me a PM if you'd like to reserve a seat!


Cedric.

ps. Free random anime for anyone who reminds me to bring 'em. Ditto for the teeny-tiny Fantasy Flight Games Cthlhu mini's.

I know quite a few of you play Munchkin, so I figured I'd post here.

MiMV meets every Tuesday at 7:00PM at Red Rock Coffee at 201 Castro St, Mountain View, CA 94041. Join us for Munchkin and other board games! If you like the Munchkin series of card games by Steve Jackson, you should join us! We meet weekly on Tuesdays at Red Rock Cafe in Mountain View. Munchkin is a unique parody card game where you kill monsters, get treasure, and stab your friends in the back. There's a whole lot of sneakiness and fun involved. Experienced players and Newbies alike are welcome.

Myself, I bring along Dominion. If you like Magic, you'll like Dominion. If you like Magic, but had to quit playing it, you'll may like it even more... :D

Meetings, Gatherings, and Get Togethers / Christmas Exchange?
« on: November 23, 2008, 01:56:55 PM »
Anyone interested in a Christmas exchange?

I know CA-West usually has one, but we can do this all over the Bay Area.

Guidelines:
* List which anime events and clubs you will be at in December. List a date and time.
* Bring a gift to each event/club.
* Examples: Two or three manga, a DVD, a plushie, several boxes of Pokey, whatever.

Feel free to suggest how you want to do the swap at the event you're attending.

I'll be at:
* Anime Palace, 12/13, 11am.
* No Name Anime, 12/13, break.

I can be at:
* Foothill Anime, First Sunday in December, break.

Meetings, Gatherings, and Get Togethers / Black Friday, anyone?
« on: November 22, 2008, 01:56:08 PM »
Uh... I don't know if these are good deals, but here's what I got from my BFAD email...

"Amazon is doing another day of their "Countdown to Black Friday" sale, this time you can get a Playstation 3 Bundle w/ NBA Live 09 and a
Remote for $399 (the retail price of a stand-alone Playstation 3 console). This deal is available by clicking here: http://bfads.net/Link/464

More information about this deal is available in the news post here:
http://bfads.net/Playstation-3-w-NBA-Live-09-Remote-for-399


Anyone hitting any BF sales? I can't really find anything I'm interested in. I'm curious at what geek stuff is out there, tho!

LOS ANGELES – Dr Pepper is making good on its promise of free soda now that the release of Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy" is a reality.

The soft-drink maker said in March that it would give a free soda to everyone in America if the album dropped in 2008. "Chinese Democracy," infamously delayed since recording began in 1994, goes on sale Sunday.

"We never thought this day would come," Tony Jacobs, Dr Pepper's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "But now that it's here, all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us."

Beginning Sunday at 12:01 a.m., coupons for a free 20-ounce soda will be available for 24 hours on Dr Pepper's Web site. They'll be honored until Feb. 28.

Haven't worked out the details, but PM with times you're available (ie. afternoon or evening), if you're interested in this "Talisman done right" boardgame. If you can play Magic, Munchkin, or Talisman, you can play this game. We'll play at Red Rock Cafe in Mountain View, so will get some pho or other noodles before playing.

FCBD is a promotional event by the comic book industry held every year. Most comic book stores are participating, often with sales. I only saw a Shonen Jump free comic book, but there are some manga-inspired American comics.

Lee's Comics is located in Mountain View and San Mateo. Print out the Lee's web page and get 4 free comics, instead of 2.

Enjoy!

Would you be interested in coming to one of our softball games to help cheer us on? The games are played near San Jose, CA Airport on Thursday nights around 6pm. We'll make it a party and have our "chicken mascot" doing some crazy moves, and have you all create a ruckus to shock/awe the other team. We'll also hand out some free Gaia Gold while you're enjoying the ice cream and hanging out with us. Let's call it "Member Appreciation Night." I can get Lanzer out there too for autographs, pictures, and chillin' with you in the bleachers. Does anyone want Kiki to show? We'd love to have you there if you can make it (will probably be April 24).

« on: March 19, 2008, 07:46:39 AM »
No, I didn't create it, but it's a screensaver based on Yuki (of Haruhi fame) hacking into the computer game from the computer game episode. Very impressive.
