Welcome to the Cloud City Rollers local Destiny news roundup! We’ll continue to update this page as more event details come in throughout the week!

Quick LGS News, gossip, and SALES

  • Snohomish store Geek Fortress is holding their first Star Wars: Destiny tournament of the year this coming Sunday at 12 p.m.! Take a break from the barbecues and come join in for some Standard format Galactic Qualifier practice this Memorial Day weekend!
  • Lynnwood store MeltingTop Games will close temporarily at the end of May. Instead of putting their inventory in storage, everything in the store is currently discounted at 10-50% off. They are also selling their furniture (including custom gaming tables) on a first-come, first-serve basis. Check out their super sale on the rares in their singles binder, too! Everything in there is $1! Their last Star Wars: Destiny tournament at this location is this Saturday.
  • MTG update: FINAL WEEKEND SALE: May 26 will be our last day. Most items in store are 35-60% off. CCGs are 20% off. Some exclusions apply. Due to the deep discounting, membership discounts will not apply. Pay with cash on merchandise purchases to receive an additional 5% off with total rounded up to the nearest dollar (we don’t want to deal with coins).

Friday, May 24

Geeky Villain – #20, 607 SE Everett Mall Way, Everett, WA 98208 – 6:30 p.m.

Clone Wars-themed Infinite format tournament on Friday, May 24 (League Week 8)

Team can ONLY include characters from the Clone Wars era for this tournament! Cards in deck are unrestricted other than normal deck building rules for Infinite.

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!
