We’ve also changed our regular round time for all our events to 45 minutes which should be an interesting experiment!  

As a final note we are reintroducing the Games Laboratory Guarantee! Basically if you show up to one of our events with your deck, paid your entry, and we simply don’t get enough players, we will not only reimburse your entry in store credit as usual but we will add an extra $5 to your account. We want to reward our regulars for showing up to our events and we think this will reflect that, and perhaps incentivise others to show up!

That is all for now, for more news and updates subscribe to newsletter!

Theros Prerelease – Sept 21st/22nd

Exciting times for the new store! We’ve got our fingers crossed that the new tables and chairs arrive in the next two days so we can max out our Event Space and really show what a fully operational Games Laboratory is capable of!

6 events this weekend! Midnight Friday, 5am / 10am / 3.30pm Saturday as well as 2HG at 10am Sunday and finally the true test of Heroic stamina, 3.30pm Sunday.

Each event is 40$ to enter, and you’ll walk away with a minimum of 6 Theros boosters, a promo card and tales of the victories and defeats at the hands of four different opponents!

Take your first step along the Heroes Path at Games Lab this weekend 😀

PAX Follow-up

Thanks to everyone who joined us at PAX.AU – we had a blast! The guys almost got blown away by the response to the Magic demo, all the attendees looked like they were having fun and our craft contest entries were amazing!
We’ll be posting some photos later, both here and on FB so check it out – and if you haven’t been into our store, please come and see us at La Trobe St, Melbourne!

We’ve got a very small small number of Magic promo cards just arrived – the ever-popular Legacy combo piece, Show and Tell, as well as the Commander staple, Overwhelming Forces. Both of these cards have received the premium Foil treatment for the first time ever! Ask in store for prices.

 

Product Updates!

Happy to let you all know that we should have enough Magic Modern Masters boosters to keep you all happy over the weekend, with lots of drafts! Starting with the first 8 people who put their names on the list Friday, and going all weekend – don’t forget that runs until Monday! Public holidays! Yeah!

We’ve also had an update on the Legend of the 5 Rings Coils of Madness tins – they’ll be in store “soon”. I know that’s not actually much to go on, but it seems there’s been some distributor issues 🙁 Still have some boosters left for those who need a fix – as well as Torn Asunder packs, and deals on older product.

Netrunner Future Proof data packs in Friday, plus restocks of Stars Wars LCG expansions A Dark Time and The Search for Skywalker, not to mention the new Game of Thrones LCG expansion The Captains Command.

Boom! Gaming! All set for your long weekend needs!
