Winter War Is Upon Us!!!

GopherDave's picture

Hey, Gophers!

This weekend is the 43rd annual Winter War Gaming Convention over at the Hawthorn Suites in Champaign! What's that mean for you? Well... It means while we will be open on Friday (the 29th) for FNM, a good chunk of our stock will be at the convention. Second, it also means that the store itself will be closed both Saturday (the 30th) and Sunday (the 31st)! Plan accordingly...

...or you could just join us there! It's a heck of a great time!

So what is our first special this year?

December 1st - 7th: 30% off all in-stock, new/sealed board games!!! Get started early with a gamer gift staple, or just get a new game to play with friends during the holidays!!!

CANCELLED

GopherDave's picture

Hey, All...

Due to a couple of factors (not finding a Level 2 Judge, and an emergency in the extended family), we have to cancel the MtG: PPTQ event that was scheduled for this Saturday.

Our apologies, but circumstances have come together to make this an impossibility to do at this time. This should in no way affect other events for the future.

Apologies,
                Gopher Dave

loquacious's picture

Hey Folks!

Saturday October 25th is the day for the return of an old favorite! Armored Gopher Games Used Game auction! Like in the past, this year's auction will be a live event, with your cool, used stuff being auctioned off by GopherDave (and some of the other 'Gopher regulars).

AGG will be taking in auction items during business hours from Monday, October 20th through Friday, October 24th. Each item or lot of items taken in for the auction must be accompanied by a filled out auction slip (see attached PDF) in order to be included in this event.

Items will be auctioned off in order of receipt. Any unsold items will be set aside until the end of the auction, at which point the items' owner will have the option of either taking back their unsold item(s), or selling them to Armored Gopher Games for the minimum bid in store credit. Armored Gopher Games reserves the right to refuse any item for any reason (condition, age, price, etc.).
