Standard Format Tournament on Friday, April 26 (League Week 4)

Hi, Star Wars: Destiny fans!

Starting this April, we will be launching Star Wars: Destiny Store Seasons!

On every Friday in April to June, we will have events that will range from draft to Standard constructed and even Infinite. Depending on the number of wins you get in an event, you will garner points and will have a running tally and season ranking at Geeky Villain. At the end of the season, all points will be tallied and the season winners (and perhaps even a few runner-ups) will get amazing prizes!

There is more to come, but we’re wanting to start out with a bang—the first Season Championship Prize will be a brand new Star Wars Ultimate Vinyl Collection 12P and a Bluetooth turntable!

I hope many of you are as excited as we are!
Please inquire with questions that you may have.

Thank you very much, and as always, please Stay Geeky!

Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics – 4230 Pacific Ave SE, Lacey, WA 98503 – 6:30 p.m.

Draft Format Tournament on Saturday, April 27

Join us for our weekly Star Wars: Destiny tournaments.

Hi all, we’re going a bit off schedule next Saturday at MeltingTop Games. With the release of the Allies of Necessity draft kit, we’ll be running a draft. The following Saturday will then shift to Standard. If you intend on purchasing a draft kit from us, let me know so I can make sure I have enough. Thanks!

At each tournament, players will earn points based on their standing. Points may be redeemed on the day of the tournament, or can be banked for future use. Players may redeem their points in order of how they placed (in the tournament in which they choose to redeem their points).

Points will be awarded as such:
1st place – 10 pts
2nd place – 8 pts
3rd place – 6 pts
Remaining top half players – 4 pts
Bottom half players – 2 pts

Booster pack prizes are worth 2 pts, so all players will win at least one booster worth of points. Other prizes include mini comics, mini figures, notebooks, and more. The prize wall will be continually updated.

We have a steady group of players in Capitol Hill! We’re excited to get more folks into our little crew, so come play! Optimism has lots of space and beer, plus you can bring food in. Pretty ideal!

Allies of Necessity Draft Release Event – 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Given that Convergence, also just dropped, we will be using that for draft/sealed with the potential of adding other recent sets at players’ request. Mikaela will be TO-ing the event. Hope to see you there!

From the galaxy-spanning Clone Wars to the struggle between the First Order and the Resistance, war permeates the universe. Alliances are formed to topple galactic empires, undermine long-standing republics, or simply to ensure their own survival.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Allies of Necessity Draft Set for Star Wars: Destiny!

Allies of Necessity features twenty new cards that can be used to supplement your pool of cards and provide a base for your draft or sealed event, while also providing new options in constructed deck building!

Like Rivals before it, players just need a copy of Allies of Necessity and six Star Wars: Destiny booster packs to participate in their very own draft or sealed event! What’s more, the cards in your Allies of Necessity Draft Set are completely reusable—no matter how many drafts you play, you’ll only ever need to buy a single copy of Allies of Necessity to enable your draft games of Star Wars: Destiny!
