Why choose New Game in Town??

With so many game stores out there, why should U go to New Game in Town for your Journey to Nyx pre-release & release needs?? Well…how do we love thee?? Let me count the ways!!

1> EVERYONE WHO PLAYS GETS A PRIZE PACK! That’s right, win or lose, everyone gets at least one prize pack. So U’re already essentially getting 7 packs for $25 dollars. That’s a great value!!

2> All winning records get additional prize packs!! Unlike some stores who only pay to top 3 or 5, we payout to all winning records…so even if U go 3-2, U’ll still get additional prize packs.

3> Consolation prize box!! For those who don’t have winning records…U STILL GET PRIZES!! That’s right, even if U don’t win additional prize packs, U get to chose from our consolation box, which includes deck boxes, sleeves, playmats & more!! (while supplies last)

4> FREE DRAFT!!! What?? No way, this can’t be real?? Oh, but it is. If U participate in at least 4 of our Journey to Nyx events between pre-release and release, U will automatically be eligible for our free draft on Sat, May 3 @ 6pm.

5> AS IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH…we are now including sealed and draft events in our rewards stamp program. That’s right!! So essentially, if U are in all of our events for pre-release, U will end up with 7 stamps (only 3 more needed for the free $10 in-store credit)…if U’re in the 2HG events as well, that’s another 7 stamps, for a total of 14, getting U the $10 dollars in-store credit with 4 stamps left over for the next rewards. Include the free draft, and that’s an extra $25 in value just for playing here!!!!!

And of course, as always, U will have our excellent customer service as well as our highly competitive singles market (thanks Hotsauce!!!) in addition to the amazingly outstanding atmosphere & community that has come the make New Game in Town the BEST GAME IN TOWN!! SEEYA ALL FOR PRERELEASE!!!
