October 20th and 27th, Brainstorm Comics and Gaming will be taking feedback as Magic players come in for some free casual Commander games. What feedback are we looking for?
Beginning November 3rd we will be commencing our official Commander League! Details will be forthcoming regarding that.
What we can tell you right now is that the league will be achievement based, not points. Packs will be awarded based on the achievements that are accrued. If three people at the table vote that a deck is too over-powered to field, then it will not be permitted.
We will have the achievements for the month of November listed on October 27th.
Join us as Kassia walks players through the game of Wingspan. Participation is absolutely free. This game currently ranks 33 on boardgamegeek.com with an overall rating of 8.1.
Wingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from Stonemaier Games.
You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions). These habitats focus on several key aspects of growth:
- Gain food tokens via custom dice in a birdfeeder dice tower
- Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
- Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them
The winner is the player with the most points after 4 rounds.
If you enjoy Terraforming Mars and Gizmos, we think this game will take flight at your table.
We have a volunteer running what will become our Wednesday Warhammer night. Due to other commitments this upcoming week, however, it will be Warhammer Thursday!
We’ve had lots of positive responses regarding the Warhammer tables and terrain, so if you want to expand this to another night (or simply come in for a pick-up game of your favorite version of miniature gaming), let us know.
Will is bringing his Ultramarines and Stormcast armies but is looking for suggestions as to what you’re interested in–is it Warcry, Kill Team, Age of Sigmar, Warhammer 40k, Underworlds or something else?
This is the gaming place you’ve been looking for.
Have you always thought about starting to play Dungeons and Dragons but were too intimidated or didn’t know anyone who would want to play as well? Don’t worry. Brainstorm Comics and Gaming has you covered!
Join us at our Walkersville location a mere 10 minutes from our downtown store for Beginner’s Dungeons and Dragons. You’ll learn to play by actually participating, beginning with building your character.
We are trying to limit this to 8 people to ensure the maximum amount of fun for everyone so check for slot availability.
Friday Night Magic is back! We will be doing drafts for $15 and free casual Commander. While you are there, we will fill you in on the plans for our Commander league we have scheduled for November. You’re going to love it. Part of the prize pool for the booster draft are promo packs from Throne of Eldraine. So join us tomorrow night at 7 pm at 25 Maple Avenue in Walkersville (less than 10 minutes from our downtown location) for Magic release shenanigans.
Join Brainstorm Comics and Gaming at either 117 N Market St in downtown Frederick, MD or 25 Maple Avenue in Walkersville, MD (ten minutes from our downtown location) for this year’s Halloween ComicFest!
Much like Free Comic Book Day that occurs in May, comic fans of all ages are treated to free comics every Halloween by their favorite comic book shops. In order to ensure the maximum number of people can enjoy the day, we do have a limit of 4 comics per person.
